Swimming Pool Care Ottawa

The preservation of the pool’s chemical balance is important. Thus, it is worth the added measure of contacting a professional familiar with how to maintain a pool. A pool pro knows what chemicals your pool needs to remain clear and stable. When you work with a professional, you can avoid a lot of the frustrations a home/pool owner has when it comes to implementing proper pool maintenance.

A pool pro can also help you ensure the longevity of your pool equipment: If the equipment is maintained correctly it will certainly last longer. Some people do not feel confident when dealing with the equipment associated with a pool and that is why there are pros at the ready to do the work for you. The professional trained in using such equipment will understand the intricate parts and if a mechanical issue arises, they will know what to do about it. This means that a pro can keep your equipment operational and your pool system working the way it should. What’s more, the professional can provide you with preventative maintenance solutions so you can get the most out of your pool equipment before having to replace it.

The additional benefit of working with a pool maintenance professional is that you can stop worrying about keeping the pool operational and clean; you get to put aside your concerns and to just enjoy the use of the pool. You will not have to go from one store to another getting cleaning supplies and equipment because the pool pro will have it all. What’s more, there is no price you can put on the peace of mind you end up getting knowing someone knowledgeable is handling all the work for you.

Installation/Upgrading Equipment:

A pool professional can make sure you have all the right equipment and that it is properly installed as well. If your equipment requires an upgrade, the professional can make you aware of the need so you can address the issue accordingly.

Detecting Pool Leaks and Fixing Problems:

If you get a small leak in a pool it can wreak havoc, and by their very nature, small leaks are oh so hard to find. Thankfully, a pool professional has techniques and tools that can be used for identifying leaks quickly. Even better, once found, the leak can be repaired.

Seasonal Opening and Closing: 

Winter comes and it is time to close the pool. Spring comes, and it is time to open it. In between closing and opening there is so much to do to get the pool clear, filled with clean, chemically balanced water. Thankfully, a pro can make closing and opening a pool a whole lot easier on you. When the pool is being opened, a professional does the following steps:

  1. Remove the cover on the pool. Fold the cover up so it can be stored until it is ready for use again come winter.
  2. The filter tank and the pump that is used for keeping the pool water clean and processed needs to be reassembled.
  3. If the pool has accessories like slides and diving boards, the professional can make sure they are set up. Accessories also include rails and ladders.
  4. The filter system is examined, the water is chemically tested, a shock treatment is used to kill off bacteria in the pool, and the water is made chemically balanced over the period of a week or more.
  5. During a winter closing everything is undone. The accessories are put away for the winter, the heater, filter and pump are stored, and the lines of the pool are winterized (dried out and plugged up so they do not crack and break). The pool cover is reapplied.
