How to Get Your Pool Summer Ready

From Zodiac

Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer, or a person that relies on a professional pool service company to open your inground swimming pool for the Summer months, there are things that you can do to save yourself time and money.  This post from Zodiac Pools gives you a checklist of tasks that need to be completed to get any swimming pool ready to go for the warm Summertime!

Here is an excerpt from the post:

It’s officially almost summer. Let’s get those pools ready! Here are a few easy steps to get your pool and backyard prepared for the season.

1. Inspect and clean the deck.

Check the expansion joints for cracks or tears. Also check your deck for any damage and take care of any repairs or upgrades to address serious maintenance issues. Problems with the deck can cause shifting of the pool.

Sweep away or hose off any leaves, dirt, or other debris from the pool deck and pressure wash the area with low-pressure hoses. Fill in any cracks and re-stain if necessary.

Finally, clean your patio furniture with a mild detergent and some water and dry thoroughly.

2. Take off the pool cover, if you have one.

If you use a pool cover, get rid of leaves, dirt, branches, and whatever else has collected on top of it. Hose off the cover with high pressure, and use a mild detergent to remove any dirt stains. Dry it completely. Use a submersible pump to remove excess water.

3. Check the water level.

For proper pump function, water has to be high enough to circulate. The level should reach the middle of the skimmer so if you need to, top off your pool with clean water.
