With the days growing warmer and warmer, now is the time to begin the process of opening your pool for the summer. Naturally, uncovering your pool and jumping in isn’t an option. Instead, there are a few things you will want to do first. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Start by inspecting your pool for leaks or cracks. Correcting any issues that you discover needs to be completed first, so call a pool contractor if you find any of these problems. You should also inspect the electrical components and make sure your filters and pumps are working correctly.
Clean and Refill
After you determine your pool is in great shape, it is time to clean algae from the side of your pool and make sure your filters are clean. You will also need to refill any water that has evaporated from last season. Plus, you will need to add the proper chemicals to get your pool prepared properly. Finally, call a professional to test your water and make sure it is ready for you to swim in.
Once your pool is swim-ready, make sure you take some time focusing on safety. It’s best if you have a fence around your pool, which can help keep small children and animals from falling in. On an annual basis, you should check the latches and locks on this fence to make sure they are working properly. Also, make sure you have proper floatation and rescue equipment nearby.
These are just a few of the things you will need to do to get your pool ready for the summer. To help make sure you have followed all of these steps and more, contact us today. We will be able to help you have a fun and safe summer in your fabulous pool.
