Spring breathes new life into the world around us. The busy season of spring pool cleaning and opening our swimming pools are beginning in the Northern climates.
**Keep this brief checklist in mind.
1. Surface Check.
First of all, take your time for a calm, deliberate evaluation. Things to look for include winter damage from snow and ice or damage from trees and branches.
2. Assess What’s Beneath the Cover.
Remove the winter cover completely afterall, this allows time to access the pool water and see what kind of condition it is in. Check for debris as well as the color, transparency and level of the water.
3. Re-connect and Inspect the Equipment.
Make sure the pump works, the filter works, the heater. Consequently, test all the outlets, all the lights, electrical panel and turn everything on.
4. Replace the Pool Fittings.
It’s really important when spring pool cleaning to check and/or replace fittings throughout the system
5. Test the Water.
Testing alkalinity and pH balance is important when spring pool cleaning. Because here at Waters Choice, we sell these testing strips plus more. Click on the Waters Choice link just above this sentence.
6. Add your Waters Choice Enzymes.
Then add 1/2 ounce for every 10,000 gallons every week during the swimming season. **Don’t wait until you are ready to swim to add Waters Choice enzymes, add them as soon as you open the pool.
7. Skimming and Vacuuming.
When spring cleaning your pool, clear out anything that got into the water during the winter. Open your pool at least two weeks before you actually plan to swim. This allows time for debris to be removed, water to be balanced, and enzymes to establish themselves.
You will be enjoying a trouble free, sparkling clean pool in no time!
