Pool Opening Tips and Chemicals

Time to open your pool! Finally!

We know that it’s been a long winter, and if you are unsure of the best pool opening techniques to keep your pool crystal clear all summer, it’s okay. We’ve got your back! 


 

Opening your pool can be really simple with some tips from Advanced Spa And Pool!

  1. Remove the cover. If you have a solid cover start draining the water off the cover as soon as the ice melts. Then a week or so before the big day scoop and leaves and debris off, and pump the rest of the water off the cover.  Let nature dry the cover off and when you remove the cover it will slide off with the greatest of ease!
  2. Fill the pool to ½ way up the skimmer faceplate
  3. Remove all winter plugs and expansion devices from the inlets and outlets
  4. Install return eyes, flapper doors (weirs) and baskets
  5. Tighten all unions and install drain plugs on the filtration system
  6. Prime the pump and FIRE IT UP! Look for any leaks and address if necessary.
  7. Install any remaining accessories to the pool

 

  1. Apply the recommended dose of shock and algaecide as well as chlorine sticks to the skimmer and circulate for 2-3 days. Backwash/clean the filter.

*9.  Bring a sample of pool water to Advanced Spa And Pool and “Balance” your pool water

  1. Once the pool is clear vacuum any bottom debris, brush the walls, and backwash/clean the filter again

 

*You are now ready to continue on your “once a week” (3) step system to maintain crystal clear, safe, sanitary, and most importantly comfortable swimming pool water.

For optimum results add a maintenance dose of Bioguard Pool Complete to remove contaminates, phosphates, and to maintain sparkling clear pool water.
