May is the typical month that most pools open up, and it’s right around the corner. Are you getting excited? You should be. Pool season is almost here and that means that getting your pool ready is going to become a priority. So, let’s take a look at the steps you need to take to open your pool successfully.
Start with the cover.
Removing your pool cover is not too difficult, but you need to make sure that any leave or debris are removed from the top before you fold it up to put it away. Give it a quick hose-off before you pack it up and make sure it’s dry so that mold or mildew doesn’t start to grow on it while it’s in storage.
Where’s the water?
Now it’s time to get the water back to the level it should be at. First, you need to remove any winterization methods that you had installed during the fall. Have you cleaned your pool filters yet? If you haven’t then you can check out our blog on the proper methods. Now, start your filtration system. Then it’s time to fill the pool with water. Check to make sure that your pump is primed and then you can make sure all the air is gone from your pool’s plumbing system. Now, if your water needs a little vacuuming then do so.
What do I add?
It’s time to add the chemicals right? Well, you might want to call one of us to check the water to see what kinds of chemicals you need to add before you just toss them in. Adding pool chemicals can be a complex science, so make sure you get it checked out at the beginning of the season.
