Los Angeles, did you notice that Spring is here and it is pool opening time? That’s right, it is the season for pool parties and good times with friends and family in the sun. Get a jump on opening your pool because as the weather warms you and the whole family are going to want to hop in the pool but if it isn’t open, that isn’t going to happen. In this article, we are going to talk about pool opening and getting ready for a great swim season.
Pool Opening – What You Need to Know
When you have had your pool closed for the winter season, you may not be excited about pool opening because you are thinking about the work that is going to go into it, but it isn’t a lot of work if you know what you are doing or if you hire a pool service.
Before you think about taking your pool’s cover off, you need to make sure that you clean up around your pool. If there is any debris laying around the pool, it’s likely to blow into the pool once it is uncovered. A quick sweep and clean up of your poolside will save you lots of time cleaning the extra debris from the pool. After you get the debris from around the pool, you need to clean debris from the pool cover and use a pool cover vacuum to vacuum up any water that made it onto the cover.
Before you put your cover up, make sure it is fully dry so it doesn’t get any mold or mildew on it from being stored away with water. Leaving it to dry in the sun for a few hours should do the trick.
Check your water levels to make sure they are set to the right amount and fill as needed. You should also make sure to check the chemical levels in your pool so that you do not swim in water that is less than pure. Ensuring the chlorine level and pH levels are proper will keep you from having to deal with bacteria and algae growth in your pool.
