At Royal Pool & Spa, we know that homeowners and even business owners may attempt to handle their pool needs on their own. When it comes to opening a pool, the steps entailed in this process may seem simple and straightforward, but the process is a lot more complicated than you may anticipate. This is why it is best to leave this process in the hands of a trusted pool care professional, such as us here at Royal Pool & Spa. Here are a few of the benefits to letting us handle your pool opening:
A Professional Can Minimize the Debris That Falls in Your Pool
The first benefit to using a professional to open your pool is that a professional can minimize the debris that falls into your pool. During the winter season, debris, including leaves, sticks and dead bugs, will cover your pool cover. When you pull the pool cover back, this debris can fall into your pool. A professional has the skills and experience to decrease the debris that falls into the pool.
A Professional Can Carefully Inspect for Damage
Another benefit to using a professional when opening your pool for the season is that a professional knows what to look for when inspecting your pool for damage. During the winter season, pipes can freeze and equipment may fail. Those who are not trained may not know what the signs are of a cracked pipe or a damaged pool motor. This can lead to more damage occurring until the problem is caught. A professional knows what to look for and can catch the problem before more extensive damage can happen.
A Professional Will Correctly Add Chemicals
The final benefit to using a professional to open your pool is that a professional can correctly determine the right amount of chemicals to add to your pool. Chemicals are not added to your pool when the pool is closed for the season. Figuring out what your pool needs is a complicated matter that involves complex calculations based on the current conditions and pH balance. A professional can ensure the right amount of chemicals are added to ensure your pool is clean, sanitary, and safe.
