I am so happy to say that spring is here, or nearly anyway. We can see the trees are blooming, birds are singing, the swimming pools need opening. Yes, I had to slip that in there.
So what do you need to know about openings that we do? If you have a cover, we remove it, rinse it off, fold it up and put it away if you have a place to store it. If you have a mesh safety cover, we remove the cover, remove the anchors, clean them and reinstall them. For all pools, cover or not, we reconnect your filter system, lubricate all the valves, start your system and balance your chemicals.
We highly recommend opening your pool early if you have a mesh safety cover. With a mesh cover, the algae is likely to grow faster, causing you to have a green swimming pool when you open it. Opening it early in the spring does help with algae growth because we can easily treat it.
Please give us a shout when you are ready to open, either calling us, emailing or leaving us a note on our Facebook page!
Hope you all have a great spring, and don’t forget to change your clocks ahead!
