Fruitland Park Pool Opening

When the weather gets warm, swimming pools become a top priority for both home and business owners. After a long winter season, there is nothing better than diving into a clean and inviting pool to beat the heat, but only if your swim space is clean! After a long period of sitting idle, you are likely to pull back pool covers to find green water, algae blooms, bad smells and heavy contaminations. Fruitland Park pool opening services kick start the spring season by cleaning water, firing up internal systems and clearing away dirt, debris and bacteria that built up over the off-season.

During the swim season, pool maintenance mostly revolves around skimming out floating debris and keeping an eye on chlorine levels. It is easy to clean your pool after it has already been restored after months of sitting idle, but getting it clean in the first place is tough. Swimming pools are complex systems and need to be treated from the inside out to guarantee a sanitary swim space.

Spring Pool Care: The Best Way to Open Your Pool

Opening up for summer means a deep cleaning process but it also means undoing what was done on closing. Dropping water levels and winterizing plugs are all part of the closing process but both of these are unhelpful when opening for the season. A shock treatment might help to clear cloudy water or remove some discolouration but it isn’t enough to make water sanitary again. When you want the best results, ditch the simple test kits and call an expert instead!

In order to get the best possible results for our clients, Puddle technicians have broken the opening process down into a multi-step approach that caters to the needs of your system inside and out.

Treating Pool Water: Refilling water levels in a pool is a simple process that can be done with a garden hose. Water should be restored to just above the skimmer opening in order for it to circulate properly. Shocking pool water is a great start to the cleaning process but it takes a carefully curated treatment plan of balancing and chemical applications to restore sanitizers like chlorine or bromine, as well as pH levels, alkalinity, calcium and more.

Inspect Pool Equipment: Long periods of disuse or cold temperatures can have a negative impact on equipment and accessories. Everything from return lines to the pool pump are at risk, so it is important to perform testing and visual checks when getting started for the summer. This is also a good time to inspect pool filters to ensure that they don’t need to be removed and cleaned or have sand replaced. Opening up for the season is also a good time to inspect safety rails and diving boards to ensure they are secured.

Debris Removal: Even with a pool cover, debris has a way of finding its way into water systems. After months of sitting stagnant, your skimmer baskets are likely full, there will be sunken items at the bottom of the pool and lighter items floating along surfaces. Standard vacuum cleaners aren’t designed to reach into hard angles. If your pool is square in shape or has stairs, these are areas where bacteria will build up. Specialized tools are designed to get into hard to reach spaces.
