Tips to Save some Considerable Expense

  1. Make sure your cover is clear of water and debris.

  2. Raise your water level to the top of the skimmer(s) prior to your scheduled opening.

  3. Make sure water and electrical breakers and outlets are accessible and equipment/storage areas are unlocked.

  4. Leave all items such as cover storage container, deck accessories, and chemicals out for the technicians.

  5. Algae is common at opening. It can be a process to clear up. Algae is a living organism that needs to be chemically treated and requires time to die and gall to the bottom before it can be removed. Do not mistake this for dirt left behind. Plan for additional service visits if your pool does not open with clear water. Open your pool early in the season before temperatures get too warm.

  6. Bring a water sample into one of our locations 24 hours after opening for analysis. Initial water chemistry balance is critical to a trouble-free pool season.
