Opening your swimming pool for the summer can be a daunting task and most homeowners choose to leave it to professionals. Ottawa Valley Pools offers affordable and professional pool opening services in Ottawa.
The toughest part of opening your pool is removing the winter cover, which involves pumping off the water and removing debris that accumulated on the cover during winter and then cleaning and putting the cover away.
After the cover is removed, we remove all winterizing equipment, such as foam rope and plugs.
When opening a pool we reinstall all pool deck equipment, such as ladders or diving boards, reassemble and activate the filtration system (as well as inspecting it for leaks) and start all other equipment – pumps, etc.
Once the pool is open and filled with water, we optionally balance the water chemistry. Chemicals are not included in the price of our pool opening Since each pool requires a different amount of varying chemicals, it’s not possible to charge a flat rate for them.
Salt bags can be delivered with the pool opening at a reduced cost when booked with an opening.
