If your property has a pool, you no doubt must have made the most of it during the summer months. But now that autumn is upon us, you need to start winding down to get your pool ready for the cooler weather that lies ahead. While there are a number of companies that provide swimming pool services Ottawa, there are some basic things you can do to care for your swimming pool during autumn as well:
- You will need to keep an eye on the pool’s water balance. This means regular pool testing using a test kit to make sure that the chlorine levels are right. While companies like ours provide excellent swimming pool services Ottawa and use the latest electronic water-testing equipment in this work, you too can buy a basic water testing kit for this purpose and test the chlorine levels yourself.
- The pool equipment running time should now be gradually reduced to six and then to four hours per day depending on the chlorine demand and if anyone is using the pool.
- If you are using a pool cover, make it a point to take it off regularly and check the pool regularly and test the water as well.
- You will also have to gradually reduce your chlorine dose output and salt chlorinator in line with the user load.
- You may have to test the water for phosphates and ensure that the salt levels are appropriate.
- Test your swimming pool water for any pH or mineral imbalances and treat problems if any, with the right chemicals.
- While you can definitely reduce the total time you spend maintaining the pool during autumn and the winter months, it is still important that you check the chemistry of the pool water every week to make sure you catch potential problems before they transform into serious ones.
It’s also a good idea to consider regular fortnightly/monthly swimming pool services Ottawa. This gives you the peace of mind that your pool is safe to swim in. We provide excellent pool testing and maintenance services and you will find that our solutions are very affordable as well, and this provides you value for money.
