It happens to everyone – you decide to open your pool in the spring, think that you do everything right, and the water still turns out green and murky. What’s going wrong?
Here at Mt. Lake, we have the answer. We will be able to help you open it the right way with our pool opening service. We offer this service for people with inground pools throughout Bucks County, PA, and the surrounding areas. If you’d like to look out into your backyard this summer and see a sparkling, crystal-clear swimming pool, then look no further than our team of pool experts here at Mt. Lake.
What’s the best way to open your pool? The answer differs for every pool. Although the same steps are typically involved, sometimes one pool needs a little something extra (whether it’s an extra scrubbing or type of chemical) than another pool. If you’re not sure where to begin, give us a call and let us take a look!
If you schedule pool opening service with us, we’ll come to your home and open your pool the right way so that you can enjoy it for the rest of the summer.
There’s a lot of steps involved when you’re opening an inground pool for the hot season. At Mt. Lake, we customize it according to the pool, but we typically follow the same steps every time. They include:
1. Drain, clean, and remove the pool cover – If you covered your pool before the winter, then you’ll want to drain any water from it. Once you do that, you can clean it by sweeping it and getting any debris or leaves off. After that, you can remove the cover.
2. Bring the water level back to normal – Use a hose to raise the water level in your pool and bring it back to normal. This level is normally around the middle of the skimmer opening or halfway up the tile.
3. Reconnect the equipment to your pool – You might have disconnected your pool’s equipment to protect it during the winter months. If so, now is the time to reconnect it. The equipment that you’ll want to reconnect includes the pump, filter heater, and anything else you might need to reattach. Then, you can turn the system back on.
4. Test and balance the chemistry of your pool – Once you fill the pool and run the system for 24 – 48 hours, you’ll need to test the chemistry of your pool. Test for the Chlorine, pH, salt and Total Alkalinity levels by using a good test kit. Or, you can come into the store for a complimentary water test.
Those are just a few of the steps you need to take when you’re opening your pool. Once the pool is up and running, customers can schedule their first cleaning appointment. Here at Mt. Lake, we offer pool opening service in Bucks County, PA, as well as other local areas, for people who want a beautiful pool to relax in and entertain others for the summer.
