A spring pool opening reverses some of the steps done during your pool’s closing or winterization. If your
swimming pool closing was conducted correctly at the end of the last swimming season, your swimming pool opening
should be a breeze. At Royal Pool & Spa, we will follow all necessary procedures to ensure your swimming pool
opening happens efficiently and effectively.
Steps to a Successful Swimming Pool Opening
- Remove the pool cover. Whether your pool has a solid pool cover or mesh pool cover, our experts
will be able to remove your cover with ease. Oftentimes, water from melted snow or other dirt and debris can
settle on pool covers during your pool’s offseason. This can make effectively removing your pool cover
tricky if handled on your own. With Royal Pool & Spa, our experts will safely remove the debris and other
obstructions without damaging your pool cover. Following this step, we’ll also help you come up with an
optimal storage solution for your pool cover while it is not in use.
- Remove expansion plugs from skimmers and wall returns. Expansion plugs, or freeze plugs, are
necessary during pool winterization to help protect your pool pipes from freezing, however, they serve no purpose
during the swimming season.
- Conduct equipment and safety inspections. Swimming pool opening time is ideal for annual
preventative maintenance steps such as cleaning, lubricating, inspecting, and replacing components for your pool
system equipment. Our experts will check your equipment for any pressure leaks, possible hazardous electrical
connections, exposed wires, and more. We will also provide input for ensuring other layers of protection, such as
points of pool access, pool covers, and safety gates, and fences.
- Reassemble the filter, pump, heater, etc. Correctly reassembled pool equipment can save you
time and money if done right the first time. Our experts have experience assembling and maintaining D.E., Sand,
and Cartridge pool filter systems, pumps, heaters, chlorinators, and more. We will also check for any damages that
may need to be repaired before putting your equipment to use. Don’t chance assembling your important pool
- Turn on the power to the pump and start the system. After inspecting and assembling your pool
pump and filter system, the next step is to ensure the system is running smoothly. It’s important to keep in
mind that different pump systems require pressure ranges. Once the system is started, we can adjust valves and
return fittings for proper flow.
