All of this is performed using our tools, which reduces wear and tear on yours.  Let our professionals take care of your aquatic equipment.  In this way you can avoid nasty surprises and incorrect handling by your building’s cleaning staff. At the same time you can take care of other tasks!

Bacterial Analysis

In collaboration with Laboratoire S.M. and following government regulations, it is necessary to perform bacterial and turbidity tests once every 2 weeks for outdoor pools and once every 4 weeks for indoor pools. 

Test parameters are:

  • Fecal coliform
  • Turbidity

We procure the water samples and transport them to the laboratory. When the analysis has been completed, we give you the report to display and file. If the test does not meet standards, we will advise you as to the steps to correct the problem and then will redo the test.

This is in order to offer clean and safe water for people using your facilities.

Annual maintenance Service

Once a maintenance contract is established in line with your needs, technicians will come and perform maintenance services. Here are the different types of services offered:

Opening  |  Machinery Testing and Maintenance Tune up  |  Closing  |  Emptying  |  Changing Sand or Cleaning Cartridges

Opening

Concrete or fibre-glass pool

Opening is usually performed by completely emptying the basin.  It is cleaned with products designed for this use and which do not damage the basin.  All equipment is checked, accessories installed and the pool/spa made operational.  We have pumps of low or high capacity to empty the basin. One or the other will be chosen depending on the location where waste water will be deposited.  

Pool with vinyl liner

Opening is performed without completely emptying the pool.  An empty pool can damage the liner.  We will proceed with complete cleaning of the pool in 3 steps so that the pool is ready for use.  These are the steps: 

  1. Remove large debris from the pool, brush the liner, add chemicals at the appropriate dosage and do a general check of the facilities and equipment.
  2. Cleaning of the bottom of the pool by moving dirt towards the drains.  Also, reinstallation of equipment, complete cleaning of the cover and the steps and finally making the pool operational.
  3. Testing of equipment and balancing water (if desired). 

Many packages are available depending on your needs.

Machinery testing and maintenance tune up

Preventive visits or interventions can be included in your service contract. The goal of these visits is to prevent failure or breakage in order that your facilities are always functional.  We can perform checkups on your pump, filter, water heater, pipes, structure, pool deck or other items as per your needs.  

Closing

Closing normally takes place in autumn before the temperature drops below freezing. Properly winterized facilities save on the cost extensive and expensive repairs the following spring.  During closing, the basin is emptied either completely or partially depending on the type of pool, accessories are put in storage, equipment and water lines are purged and preventive products (antifreeze and winterizing chemicals) are added.

Entrust these maintenance tasks to professionals in order to keep your facilities in good condition for a long time. This will also help avoid interruptions in service if equipment were to be broken or deteriorate prematurely.

Many options for winterization are available such as: winter covers, leaf net, cleaning of the cell for a salt system and other options as on demand.

Emptying

Pool

For indoor pools, it is recommended to completely empty the basin a minimum of once a year.  The work necessary includes completely draining the pool, performing a thorough cleaning with acid, refilling the pool and returning it to working order. During the time the pool is not in use, it is a good time for a tune up of the pool equipment such as: the pump, filter, water heater and sanitation system.  This way all the equipment will be in good working order the rest of the year. 

Spa

It is necessary to frequently empty, clean and refill spas. To calculate the frequency of empyting for a spa, use the following formula: (# gallons in spa / 3) / # bathers per day = required frequency of emptying spa.

Spa water is very difficult to maintain.  You must not put off emptying the spa.  The operation can be performed regularly by our team of experienced technicians.  

Changing sand or cleaning cartridges

Our experienced technicians can change the sand in your filter when required.  Normally this needs to be done every 2 or 3 years.  In an environment with warmer water there are more contaminants, in this case it is preferable to change the sand every year.  In this way it is easier to maintain water quality. To do this we will completely empty the filter and remove the contents.  The filter will be cleaned and then refilled with new sand.  .

Consequently, the filter may be filled with sand, natural rock, or glass beads for better performance. 

If you have a cartridge filter, we can clean your cartridges on a weekly or monthly basis.  Our procedure consists of picking up your cartridges, manually cleaning them 3 times and dipping them in cleaning solution 3 times.  Finally, we bring back your cartridges.  Ideally, you would have a second set of cartridges that could be installed while we are cleaning the other set.
