1. Get Ready as Soon as Possible
This process, commonly called “opening the pool,” must be carried out each spring as early as possible in the season. The reason for this haste is that bacteria will proliferate as the temperature rises. You will want to get to work before the water temperature reaches 21 °C. So, add this task to your to-do list around mid-April (or as soon as all the snow has melted)!
2. Get Your Tools Together
Assemble everything you need to get the job done. Stopping midway through because you are missing a piece of equipment is an unnecessary waste of time! You will require a hose, a pump to remove the water accumulated atop the winter cover, a leaf skimmer, cleaning products for the liner and stairs, rags and a brush, pool silicone sealant, and a water test kit. Having everything you need on hand will save you extra trips to the pool supply store. Additionally, you will need to give the water a choc chemical treatment. Purchase enough for pool maintenance throughout the summer.
