Winter may be hitting hard at the moment, but it will subside in a few weeks, giving you the perfect amount of sun to open your pool and take a refreshing dip. While taking the cover off your pool during the spring is a joyous occasion, your pool won’t be quite ready for swimmers until you’ve taken care of a few basic maintenance issues.
For more than 30 years, Gutierrez Pool Plastering has been providing chemical balancing, deck installation, and pool decorating services to homeowners throughout New Jersey. Their professionals will advise you on ensuring crystal-clear water when you open your pool for the warm-weather seasons.
One of the first things you should do before removing your pool cover is drain any excess water from the top of the cover. This can be done using a simple sump pump, and will make it far easier to remove the cover. You should also test your water’s chemistry before you throw anything into it; use a testing kit to determine the best chemical balance. And make sure you vacuum and brush your pool as well, since there can be plenty of dirt and debris left over, even if you have a hard cover.
While it may be tempting to immediately jump in your pool as soon as it opens, there are certain measures you’ll need to take in order to make sure the water is safe for everyone. For more information on pool safety and pool decorating, visit Gutierrez Pool Plastering online, or call (908) 756-7585.
