Summer is around the corner and it’s time to get ready for the swim season. Tips to prepare your pool range from doing a deep cleaning to making sure you have all of the supplies you need. Figure out when you want to have your pool open and then plan accordingly.

Here are a few useful tips to help you get your pool ready for the swim season.

  1. Schedule Your Pool Opening

Once you know when you want to open your pool, call your pool service company. Find a date that works for both of you and schedule a time for them to visit your home. Be mindful that they may offer you several possible timings instead of one specific time. This gives them a little cushion if they are running late after another appointment.

  1. Top off Your Pool Before the Service Tech Gets There

Before your scheduled service time, top off the water in your pool. This may take some time. Make sure you start the water early enough so that there is ample time for the pool to fill before your service tech arrives. If the pool is not full enough, they may not be able to do their job, forcing you to reschedule your appointment.

  1. Have Everything Ready

Don’t wait until the last minute to get all of your pool equipment and supplies out of the shed. Make sure that all of the equipment is easily accessible so that your pool service tech doesn’t have to search for anything. Wipe each piece down to remove any dirt or dust that might have built up.

  1. Make Sure the Area Around Your Pool Is Clean and Free of Clutter

Clean the area around your pool. Get rid of any clutter that may have built up over the past few months. Take out a few minutes and clean up any yard debris that may be lying around. Remove any debris that may be floating around in your pool as well. Keeping the area clean will allow your pool tech to work more efficiently and finish their job much faster.

  1. Have Realistic Expectations

Remember that you are not the only one that wants their pool open. Unless you are the first person scheduled for the day, you may experience a delay in your pool tech’s arrival. Once they do arrive, they must go through the process of setting up your equipment, adding the chemicals, and testing the water. This can be time-consuming with some pool systems. Be patient and let them do their job.
