The start of spring is right around the corner, which means you need to start preparing your pool for spring. That way, once it is warm enough for you to start swimming, your pool will be ready to go.
Test the Water
If you kept your pool full, one of the first things you need to do is test the water. You are going to want to turn on the circulation system in your pool and allow it to run for a few hours. After the water has had a chance to circulate, you are going to want to use a testing kit on the water. The testing kit should measure and let you know all about the pH levels, total alkalinity, and chlorine levels in the pool.
Once you know what the levels are, you are going to need to add chemicals to get your pool up to an ideal balance. It can be a balancing act getting the levels just right in your pool, which is why it can be helpful to have a pool repair and maintenance company help you balance out the levels in your pool before you start using the pool. You don't want to use the pool until all the levels are just right.
Get Your Equipment Hooked-Up
Second, you need to get your equipment hooked up. You need to set-up and get your pump, pool filter, heater, and any accessories up and running again.
As you set-up each piece of equipment, you are going to want to check each part to make sure that each part is in good condition. Replace any parts that appear damaged or banged up parts. Clean each piece of equipment as well before you get it up and running.
If you are new to taking care of a pool, you may want to have a professional inspect all of your equipment and make sure that it is ready to go. A professional will be able to easily spot issues with your equipment and fix the issues right away.
Clean the Cover
Finally, after you take the cover off your pool, make sure to spend some time cleaning it before you put it away. Remove any debris that has built up on the pool cover. Then lay the pool cover flat and use a brush and some soapy water to clean the cover. Allow the cover to air dry completely before you fold it up and put it away.
Spring is right around the corner, which means now is a good time to schedule a pool company to help you open your pool. A pool repair company, like Clear Pools Maintenance Inc. , can balance the chemicals in your pool and make sure all the equipment is working properly so you can enjoy your pool as soon as possible.Share
