4 Ways to Make Your Pool Opening Run Smoothly

Summer is right around the corner, which is an exceptionally exciting time for pool owners. If you haven’t already, you will be opening your pool shortly, commencing another great season of family fun. Pool openings shouldn’t be stressful, follow these tips to make your pool opening run smoothly. 

Plan Ahead

Before you start the pool opening process, it can be helpful to create a checklist of all the tasks that need to be completed. This can include things like removing the pool cover and storing it properly for future use, cleaning the walls and floor of the pool, checking all equipment and replacing any necessary parts, testing water chemistry levels frequently during the summer season, and adding chemicals as needed.

Having a clear plan in place before beginning the pool opening process will help you stay organized and make sure everything runs smoothly. It also has the added benefit of saving precious time.

Use a Pool Opening Kit

Another great way to ensure a successful pool opening process is to make use of a pool opening kit. A good quality kit will come with all the necessary chemicals, test strips, and other equipment required for the job. This can be an invaluable timesaver and help you get your pool ready for summer in no time.

It is important to follow the instructions on the kit’s label carefully and make sure that everything is completed correctly. Taking shortcuts or neglecting certain steps can lead to problems such as an imbalance in water chemistry levels or cloudy water – something you definitely want to avoid. Be sure to contact Bonnie & Clyde’s today to purchase your quality pool opening kit.  

Use the Right Chemicals Year-Round

Using the right chemicals for your pool year-round can positively affect the ease of your pool openings. A healthy pool will be easier to open each year, and using good chemicals in the correct amounts is a great way to maintain a healthy pool. 

Bonnie & Clyde’s Pools and Spas carries a variety of quality chemicals that are sure to keep your pool operating smoothly. They also carry the best chemicals for the pool openings, so you know your pool is being taken care of properly both on-season and off-season. 

Once you’ve selected the best chemicals for your pool, stock up prior to your pool opening. By purchasing and keeping a backstock of all necessary pool chemicals, you are ensuring that you have everything you need to keep your pool going all summer. Don’t spend downtime waiting on more chemicals to come in, be prepared ahead of time and use your pool all season long.  

Let a Professional Check Your Equipment 

One important aspect of a pool opening is checking your equipment to make sure it is ready to go all season long. Although most pool owners are capable of carrying out their own maintenance tasks, it is recommended to periodically have a professional check the equipment in your pool. A licensed technician can inspect and adjust any filters, pumps, or other electrical components to ensure they remain in safe working order — a pool opening is a great time to have this done. 

Having a professional inspect your pool equipment will give you peace of mind knowing that your pool is running at its optimal parameters and that important parts are being changed as needed. They will also be able to detect minor issues before they become more serious and costly problems.
