How to Prepare for Your Pool Opening

Opening your pool is one of those anticipated moments each spring, which means the warmer weather is on the way and backyard fun is at hand. It is not as straightforward as pulling off the cover and jumping in, though. It is a multi-layered process in which Little Giant Pool & Spa specializes. This article will provide the information you need to prepare for your pool opening.

The options are to open the pool yourself or choose a company that provides pool opening service in St. Charles County, MO. But either way, the process is the same.

The first step is to take the time to assess the overall condition, clean up debris, and look for any pool repairs that may be required. While doing this, check the pool cover before cleaning off any leaves, twigs, water, or other materials that accumulated on it. At the same time, do an inventory of all your chemicals and supplies to ensure you have everything you need to get your pool ready for the season.

After the pool is uncovered, perform a closer inspection than the superficial one you conducted before removing the cover. Inspect the filter, return lines, and pump. Look for chips, cracks, and leaks. Fill the pool to the waterline, remove any other debris, turn on the filter, and then test the water. All that is left now is to enjoy your pool.
