OK. So we haven’t exactly had a great spring for swim­ming out­side. That’s got to change even­tu­ally (right?), so here are some DIY pool-opening tips to have handy when the sun­shine strikes.

  1. Remove, hose off, fold and store win­ter pool cover. An accor­dion fold makes it easy to cover your pool again in fall. Be sure to keep it in a dry and rodent-free place.
  2. Bring out and replace all those items you’ve stored for win­ter: lad­ders, auto cleaner, bas­kets, plugs, gauges, etc.
  3. Inspect and test the elec­tric­ity for all pumps, lights, heaters, etc.
  4. Lube the valves and o-rings. Flood lines, start up the motor and adjust the valves for proper flow.
  5. Brush pool walls, steps and tiles and scrub skim­mers with phosphate-free cleanser. Hose down your pool deck.

Have fun and call us if you have any questions.
