Whitby Seasonal Pool Maintenance

Swimming pools get a lot of attention during the summer months but there is more than one season! While you are getting ready for the holidays, your pool is stuck out in the cold! Cold weather is a serious threat to both above ground and ingound pools but Puddle Pros are here to help! Professional Whitby seasonal pool maintenance helps to protect your pool during winter and get it ready for use in spring, so you can make the most out of your swim space. 

In Ontario, seasonal pool care isn’t optional. An improper closing can lead to serious and widespread damage, not just to pools but to surrounding areas too. After months of sitting still, pool owners can expect to pull back winter covers and see swampy water and get hit the bad smells. Stepping foot into contaminated water is a serious health risk, so don’t take a chance! Instead of dealing with a DIY disaster, call a local Puddle Pro to take care of your swim space. 

Seasonal Pool Care: Build a Schedule That Works 

Most pool owners try to maintain a set schedule for their seasonal maintenance: close down after the September long weekend and open up again in time for the May long weekend. This might make it easier to schedule your next big pool party but it isn’t necessarily the right move for your water systems. Instead of basing your pool care on a specific date, it should always be done according to the climate. 

Fall Pool Care: The best time to close your pool is when the average outdoor temperature reaches 15 degrees, Closing too early can mean missing out on the last warm days of the swim season and encouraging algae growth. Closing too late can mean dealing with damage caused by freezing temperatures. The best way to avoid damage is to drop the water level in your pool, winterize drain plugs and apply winterizing chemicals to prevent freezing and algae growth. 

Spring Pool Care: As much as you might want to cannonball into warm weather in spring, it is important to ensure your pool is safe for use. After months of sitting idle you are likely dealing with tons of debris, algae growth, bad smells and a high rate of contamination. A basic test kit won’t help you balance pool water after months of buildup. A proper opening means refilling water levels, removing debris from the pool basin as well as skimmer baskets and pool filters, applying a multi-step chemical treatment, shock and reinstalling any pool equipment that might have been removed for storage when closing for the fall season. Clean water means balanced chemical levels and that includes chlorine levels, pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium.
