Remove the Pool Cover
The first order of business in opening a pool for the spring season is to remove debris from the pool cover, clean it, and lay it out to dry before storing. Taking good care of the pool cover is essential to prolong its life and to keep it in good condition for use again when the swim season is over.
We will replace any slides, stair railings, ladders, and other accessories. Anything that was removed from the pool at the end of swim season will be reinstalled.
Inspect the Pool and Equipment
We will carefully inspect the pool for any cracks or other damage that may have occurred over the winter. In addition, our team will check your filter to ensure it is in good condition. We will inspect the pump and heater. Finally, we will turn the system back on and check for leaks, unusual noises, and other irregularities. We will list any necessary or recommended repairs.
We will raise the pool water to the correct level. During the winter, some evaporation will have taken place and, usually, water needs to be added when the pool is opened in the spring.
Our pros will test your pool water and make all the necessary adjustments to restore the water to the proper chemical balance. The alkalinity, pH, and calcium hardness will all be brought to the correct level, and algaecide added if necessary.
After the chemical balance is squared away, we will completely clean the pool. We will brush the walls and vacuum the floor of the pool to remove any sediment. We will pay special attention to the areas around steps, ladders, and all nooks and crannies.
The final step in your spring pool opening is to shock the pool water. An extra dose of chlorine or other sanitizer will ensure that any remaining contaminants, bacteria, or algae in the pool are eliminated.
