How to Open an Inground Pool in 10 Steps
From Swim University
Perhaps you are the type of person that just doesn’t get around to things promptly. Perhaps you were traveling and forgot to open your swimming pool for the Summer. Nevertheless, if your swimming pool isn’t ready for prime time as of yet, this post is definitely for you. Matt Giovanisci from Swim University gives you a simple, 10 step process to open your pool and cool off during the dog days of Summer. The only thing required is a friend, and Matt points out that he really can’t help you find that.
Here is an excerpt from the post:
Are you ready to open up your inground pool by yourself this year? Have no fear, it’s easier than you think.
You SHOULD open up your own swimming pool. It will save you time and money, because you won’t have to hire someone to do it for you…unless you want to.
Here is a very basic set of instructions. If you follow these 10 steps to open your pool, you’ll be thanking the gods you didn’t pay anyone, and you’ll be swimming sooner!
What You Need:
Pool cover pump
Winter cover cleaner
Start-up chemical kit
A friend (sorry, we don’t have a link for that)
1. Remove Water and Debris From Your Winter Pool Cover
Remove all water, leaves, and debris from your cover. To remove the water, you can use a submersible pool cover pump.
Removing the debris can be tricky. Once the water is off the cover, you can use a broom to sweep off any large piles of debris. DO NOT use anything sharp or harsh on your cover.
SMART TIP: Once the water is removed, you could wait a day or two for the cover to dry and blow the debris off with a leaf blower.
