Here are some tips to make your spring pool opening easier:

Draining and cleaning:

Draining the excess water off the pool cover is the first thing you should do to open the pool. Fortunately, to accomplish this task, all you have to do is put a cover pump on the cover and allow it to do it its job. Once you drain away the water, remove the leaves along with other foreign matter that has settled on the pool cover. By doing this, it will reduce the amount of debris you’ll need to remove from the water. Once the cover is somewhat clean, you should remove from the pool.

System repairs:

A good time to consider performing any system repairs or replacing broken parts you might need is during your seasonal pool closing. During this time of year, a long repair will not inconvenience you and come spring time you’ll be happy about having everything all set to go when that first hot day starts. You do not want to spend that day making haste to replace broken or missing parts.

Cleaning the filter:

Astonishingly, this isn’t something pool owners always consider at closing time; however, it’s important to thoroughly clean the filter before winter.

Whenever you rinse clean of chemical residue and dirt from the filter for the off-season, you will not only save yourself time cleaning it up during spring but you also lengthen the component’s lifespan by minimizing their exposure to salt, chlorine, and other destructive chemicals.

Pool water treatment:

In certain climates, the cold environment work to help prevent the growth of algae in the off-season. Talk to your pool expert for help and advice on a chemical treatment, which you can add safely without having to be circulated. In addition, water may be chemically treated in the spring a few weeks before planning to open the pool to kick-start the process.

Add water if necessary:

It’s most likely you’ll have to add water to get the levels up to the usual working range.


Finally, you should put safety measures in place. Now is the time to post all No “Running, No Diving” signs by your backyard pool area. Inspect all door and gate alarms. Install your removable pool fencing.
