DIY Spring Cleaning vs. Calling the Pros

If you’re handy and have the time, some tasks are DIY-friendly. However, if you’re short on time, dealing with a neglected pool, or want peace of mind, professional cleaning and inspection are worth the investment.

Your Spring Pool Opening Checklist

  1. Remove & Store Cover:
    • Clean your winter cover gently and allow it to dry completely before storing it to prevent mildew.
    • Inspect for any damage to the cover and make necessary repairs or replace if severely deteriorated.
  2. Initial Clean:
    • Skim out leaves and debris.
    • Brush the pool’s walls and floor to loosen clinging algae or dirt.
    • Vacuum the pool thoroughly to remove material on the bottom.
  3. Water Chemistry Check:
    • Test and adjust pH, alkalinity, chlorine/sanitizer levels, calcium hardness, and other essential parameters.
    • Add shock to the pool for initial sanitization.
  4. Equipment Inspection:
    • Check the pump, filter, heater, and any other pool equipment for proper function.
    • Look for any leaks, worn parts, or signs of trouble and make repairs as needed.
    • Clean out the filter and ensure proper pressure readings.
  5. Safety First:
    • Inspect fences, gates, covers, and alarms to ensure they’re all in good working order.
    • Ensure lifesaving equipment is visible and properly stored.

When to Consider Professional Pool Opening

  • Green or Cloudy Pool: Severe algae outbreaks often require specialized chemical treatments and powerful filtration to clear up the water quickly.
  • Equipment Issues: If you suspect problems with your pump, heater, or filter, it’s best to have a professional diagnose the issue and avoid potential damage.
  • Limited Time: A pro can efficiently open your pool, potentially saving you hours of work.
