Is it almost time to open your swimming pool? Maybe you’re a first time pool owner or perhaps you’ve had someone maintain your pool before and you want to start. What better time than now?
How To: Prepare Your Pool for Opening!
|This short, informative guide will prepare you and your pool for our service technicians to open your pool for the summer! If this guide does not answer all the questions you may have, please contact us.|
|Please note: Premier Pool & Spa recommends that you contact us at least 30 days before the date that you would like your pool opened, this will ensure that you can be scheduled for a time that works best both for you and our service technicians.1. Check water level and raise water to running level.
1. When opening pools in the spring, most pools require you to raise the water level before we arrive to open them. The water level should be at the middle of the square skimmer openings when the service techs arrive to open the pool. If you pool appears to have collected water up to the top or higher than the skimmer openings in the spring, it is recommended to use a submersible pump to lower the water to the middle of the skimmer openings. If you do not have a submersible pump, the water can usually be lowered by backwashing or running the water to waste after our service techs start your pool equipment.2. Prepare auto cover or mesh cover for opening.
Please have your auto cover pump running and continuously pumping any water off the cover to have it ready for the opening, if we are not cleaning your auto cover for you, please remove any heavy debris from it also. For those with mesh covers, please have them cleaned and removed completely from the pool before the service techs arrival. Otherwise we will remove and clean all mesh covers left on the pool when opening it and you will be billed for the mesh cover removal. (please have mesh cover storage bag available on opening)
3. Have required pool parts available.
