At Poolman Pools, we always provide efficient and dependable pool openings to our many customers in the Feeding Hills community. Pool openings can be tricky to do on your own. You must be completely accurate to ensure your pool can be enjoyed safely. Here are some of the essential steps we take when opening your pool.
After sitting for months, your pool cover will probably be topped with water and debris. Before removing your cover, we will remove any excess water with a sump pump. This makes your cover much lighter and easier to remove. After, we will clean your cover thoroughly. We make sure not to fold it too tight, and store it somewhere cool and dry. Typically, we’ll recommend a garage or basements because they make ideal storage spaces.
Next, we get your pool equipment up and running! Starting by lubricating any o-rings, hardware, and gaskets with a silicone lubricant as we reconnect your equipment. Not only will this will prolong the life of your equipment, but it makes your pool closing in the Fall easier. At this point, we will reattach your pool ladder, handrails, and any other accessories removed during the previous closing.
After sitting unused for several months, your water will be completely unbalanced. It’s essential to test your water. We will let you know which levels need attention, and what chemicals need to be added to your pool water.
Lastly, some dirt and debris will still find their way into your pool even though you used a cover. It is important to note, that giving your pool a thorough vacuum prevents the pool filter from having to do extra work. We make sure to get every last spec before we leave! Also, we give the pool walls, steps, and bottom a good scrub with a quality brush to clear any algae and bacteria. It’s common for these to develop while your pool has been unused. It’s always a good idea to allow your pool equipment to run at least overnight before moving forward. After your equipment has been running for several hours, then we can shock your pool water.
