The weather is finally starting to take a turn towards sunnier skies, longer days, and warmer temperatures, so you know what that means. It’s almost pool season. Before you can dive into the pool for the first time this year, there are a few steps you’ll need to take to make sure your pool is ready. Ultimately, when you decide to open your pool is entirely up to you, but we typically recommend waiting until temperatures are consistently above 70 degrees. Since we’re nearing that time of year, now is a good time to start prepping for spring cleaning.

Schedule Routine Maintenance
You might not keep your routine maintenance scheduled in the off-season, which is understandable. Why maintain a pool that isn’t being used? But spring is the perfect time to reschedule your weekly maintenance sessions. Give our team a call to get a routine scheduled so that you won’t have to think twice about keeping your pool clean all spring and summer long.
Clean Up the Landscaping
What does landscaping have to do with your pool? It has everything to do with it! If you have a lot of trees and shrubs in your yard, then that’s a lot of debris that will likely make its way into your pool and filters. To make life easier on your pool, keep your landscaping cleaned up so that fewer leaves and flower petals are floating in your pool. Additionally, make sure to keep the soil from the flower beds and lawn swept up and away from the pool edge. Dirt can cause clogs and unnecessary stains in your pool system.
Refill Your Supplies
Do you like to do some of your own pool maintenance and cleaning? That’s awesome; we love DIY! Make sure to go through your stock of pool chemicals, cleaners, and other supplies to make sure you’re fully stocked for the season. There’s nothing worse than finally being ready to cannonball into the deep end only to find that you ran out of cleaning supplies.
Check the Equipment
This part of the routine is definitely best left to the professionals. Give us a call, and we’ll make sure every aspect of your pool system is functioning as it should and is not showing any visible signs of wear and tear. If there is anything noticeable, we’ll let you know and provide you with a variety of options on how to proceed, whether that’s with a repair or replacement of the entire part or system.
Replace the Old Toys
Unfortunately, pool floaties, noodles, and tubes don’t last forever. Take stock of your old pool toys and figure out which ones will last another summer and which ones need to go. This is also a great time to eliminate clutter from the pool shed. Even though all of your kids are grown, do you still have baby floats? It’s time to toss it out!
