Is it spring yet? Is it time for swimming? When should you open the swimming pool for the 2020 season? The answer to that question is as unique as the area of the country in which you live, whether you have a pool water heater and how anxious you are to get the pool opened.
Keep in mind, just because it’s open doesn’t mean you absolutely have to swim, right? You will just know that the pool is ready when you are. There is nothing worse than spring and warm weather being in abundance and you’re counting down the days until your pool contractor can get to your pool opening. If the pool has been opened, all you have to do is keep up with keeping the pool pump running and testing the chemical balances to assure the water stays clean and clear and algae-free until the swim season is officially here.
What are you waiting for?
Call your pool contractor today and get on his schedule for a pool opening. You may be scheduling it out a few weeks or a month from now, but at least you’re on the calendar, right?!
If you live in an area of the country where swim season is short and swim time is at a premium, you certainly don’t want to be looking at a pool that isn’t ready for swimming just because your pool contractor is busy.
Don’t Wait For Summer: Schedule A Pool Opening Today!
There are a myriad of reasons to call your pool service contractor sooner rather than later and we have put together a list for your consideration.
If you don’t already have a pool water heater, talk with your pool contractor today about the idea of adding one to help your swim season start even earlier. There are several kinds from which to choose and they have advantages and disadvantages so do your homework and get the best one for your family.
Pick up the phone.
You will have your choice of dates when you call early. Waiting until all your neighbors call for a pool opening means you will have to wait and probably won’t have your choice of dates.
Keep algae at bay.
A closed pool and warm weather and a cover are the perfect storm for algae growth and you won’t know it’s happening until the pool is open and you see the water is green, brown, yellow or black. Yuck!
Algae is insidious and could be waking up and making its way into the pool water. You don’t want the pool contractor to arrive for what he or she thinks is a routine pool opening only to find there is a fight with algae to be contended with first. and when your pool contractor comes to perform a simple opening, he may be faced with dealing with an algae-filled pool before the normal opening procedures can be started.
Plan that first pool party of 2020
Imagine the surprise on your friends’ and family’s faces when they get that invitation in the mail to come to your pool party. What?! Your pool is open already? Yes. Yes, it is because you planned ahead!
While you’re waiting for the pool contractor to arrive (and it could still take a week or so because more people are scheduling spring openings) check out your furniture and outdoor living space and have all of that ready when the pool is ready!
