There’s seemingly a holiday for practically every day of the year, but National Pool Opening Day should certainly be one we can all rally around. Observed each year on the last Saturday in April, National Pool Opening Day is the perfect time to prepare your pool for a summer of fun.

In this issue, we’ll share best practices for opening your pool.

How to Open Your Pool

1. Remove the pool cover.
Before pulling the cover off your pool, though, be sure to remove any of the leaves and debris that have collected over the winter months. After you’ve removed the cover, let it dry in the in the sun before you put it away for storage.
2. Raise your water level.
Before the pump can be started, the water level must first be raised to at least the mid-point of the skimmer.
3. Remove any winter plugs that were installed.
While the water level is rising, walk around your pool and remove all of the winter plugs from the return jets. You can also replace the drain plugs on your filter and pump…but do not turn the pump on just yet.
4. Get the pump primed and going.
After the water has risen to the mid-point of the skimmers, you can prime the pump. Once it’s running, be sure to check for leaks. If there are leaks, mark the location, then turn the pump off so that repairs can be made. If there aren’t any leaks, your pump should be ready for continuous service.
5. Test the water.
After you’ve cleaned out any leaves or debris that may have found their way into your pool, it’s time to test the water. You can do this yourself with a test kit, or you can take the sample to your local pool supply store for professional analyzation. Just make sure that you take the sample from the deep end of the pool and about a foot below the water surface.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
