The Ultimate Guide to Pool Opening: Preparing for a Splashing Summer

Because your pool has been sitting for so many months, your first chemical purchase is often the most pricey. So not only can you save some money by opening with us, but you’ll also be assured that all of your pool’s equipment is running properly.

Here’s a list of what we’ll do when we come out to open your pool:

Remove and store your winter cover, plugs, and other winterizing equipment in your desired location.

  • Install all ladders, handrails, directionals, baskets, and skimmers
  • Examine and connect pump, filter, and heater to ensure proper flow and filtration
  • Start pump and filtration system and observe functionality
  • Add chlorine shock (included in price of opening) or other desired water sanitizer
  • Brush pool walls to and remove any debris or algae with a thorough vacuuming
  • If requested, we will take a small water sample back to our retail store for a free chemical analysis.

We know it may not be overwhelmingly hot outside just yet, but our service schedule fills up very quickly. So whether you’d like your opening schedules as soon as possible or at a later date, it’s best to give us a call (860) 673-6118 now to not only secure your preferred date, but to also take advantage of our great chemical promotion.
