Stellar Spa Opening and
Closing Services

If you have a hot tub or spa and need help opening and closing it for the season, Piscinévo offers comprehensive spa opening and closing packages to suit every budget. Many homeowners may think that because spas and hot tubs are smaller than swimming pools they don’t require professional upkeep. That couldn’t be farther from the truth!

Hot tubs that are not well maintained have a significantly shorter lifespan than when they are well-taken care of. This is especially true in Canada, where the harsh winters can do a number on a hot tub that hasn’t been properly winterized. Hiring a professional pool company like Piscinévo can guarantee that you’ll be able to get the most out of your spa for years to come.

Spa & Hot Tub Opening & Closing Services

Underestimating the intricacies of opening and closing a spa is a common misstep for many spa owners. It’s far from just draining water in the winter and refilling in the spring. Proper maintenance is crucial to uphold the longevity and functionality of your spa or hot tub.

Opening a Spa or Hot Tub:

Removing the Cover:

While spa covers are generally lighter and more manageable than pool covers, professional handling ensures no damage occurs during removal.

Inspecting the Spa:

A thorough inspection of the spa shell and equipment for any potential damage or issues accrued during the off-season is conducted.

Filling and Initial Cleaning:

Whether your spa was drained or not for the winter, we'll ensure it's refilled with fresh water and given an initial cleaning to remove any debris or residue.

Balancing Chemicals:

Like pools, spas require accurate chemical balancing. Thanks to their smaller volume, the process is quicker but requires the same level of care and precision to ensure safe, comfortable water.

Starting the Pump and Heater:

Spa pumps and heaters may be simpler than those for pools, but they need a professional eye to ensure they're working correctly. We'll make sure these are properly started, primed if necessary, and operating efficiently.

Water Change and Cleaning

All spa features, such as jets, lights, and other settings, are checked and calibrated to provide the best user experience.

The Risks of Improper Spa Maintenance

Improper spa maintenance can lead to a number of problems that can be costly and time-consuming to fix, or even health-hazardous. In the harsh climate of Montreal, where winters can be severe, the risks are even more significant.

  • Chemical Imbalance:
    Maintaining the correct balance of chemicals in your spa is essential. If not managed correctly, you could find yourself facing a series of complications. Too much chlorine or bromine can lead to skin, eye, or respiratory irritation. On the other hand, too little sanitizer can cause bacteria and algae to thrive, posing health risks and turning your water cloudy or green. Also, incorrect pH levels can lead to scaling, which may damage your spa’s equipment and make the water uncomfortable for users.
  • Equipment Damage:
    Improper maintenance can cause significant damage to your spa’s components. For instance, failing to clean filters regularly can put undue pressure on your pump, shortening its lifespan. Not winterizing properly can lead to water remaining in the pipes, which can freeze, expand, and cause cracks or bursts – a particularly serious issue in Montreal’s freezing winters.
  • Structural Problems:
    Inadequate winterization can also lead to structural issues. The extreme cold of Montreal’s winters can cause damage to the shell or cover of your spa if not properly protected. What’s more, if water seeps into cracks and freezes, it will expand and exacerbate the damage, which can be expensive to repair.
  • Inefficiency and Increased Costs:
    A poorly maintained spa can also be less efficient, requiring more energy to heat the water or run the pump, leading to increased utility bills. In the long run, the cost of professional maintenance is usually much less than the cost of these inefficiencies and the potential repairs that may be needed.

At Piscinévo, we understand the unique challenges presented by Montreal’s extreme weather conditions. Our expert team is trained to ensure your spa is opened and closed properly, and that it’s adequately protected against the harsh winter elements, so you can enjoy your spa for years to come.
