Some Suggestions on How to Get Your Pool Ready for the Summer

Before you know it, summer will be here once again. Instead of writing until we are well into summer be for you get that pool ready, why not get it ready earlier instead of later. Of course this does not mean that you should start getting it ready in the middle of winter. However when it is almost the end of spring in your area then you should start getting things ready. For most people who have above ground pools you will have to start the cleaning out process. Most people don’t dump out the water, and refill it; they work with the water that is left in the pool. One of the first things you need to do is clean off your pool cover as best as possible before removing it from the pool. This will help to limit the amount of dirt that drops into your pool. Then once you remove the pool cover you should make sure that you take the time to give your pool cover a thorough cleaning. This way when you put it back on at the end of summer you won’t have to worry about cleaning it.

You will need a net to help you get the leaves and other floating bugs and dirt off the top of the water. Your next step after you have fished out as much dirt as possible is to purchase fresh new pool supplies. Some people use what they have as long as it is not expired, but I have found through my own personal experience that it is always better to just get fresh new supplies. Make sure that you take the time to re-read the instructions for the use of the chemicals.

Even if you think that you remember how to do it you should always read the instructions again just to be sure. Then you can restart the pool pump and check the water level on a regular basis. This would also be a good time to check for any leaks in or around the pool or the pump. One final suggestion is to make sure that you check to make sure that all safety fences that you should have installed around your pool are installed properly and working. Remember that when you open up the pool, children usually tend to get excited and become fascinated. You should also make sure that the ladder for the pool is locked up and away from the water, when not in use. These are just a few suggestions on how to get your pool ready for the summer time.
