Swim season is almost here and our appointments are filling up fast. Now is the time to prepare your inground pool for maximum enjoyment. Opening your inground pool can be a daunting task. The safety cover should be cleaned, folded, and stored properly for the summer. You want to avoid kinks and tears in the cover and ensure that no algae grows while in storage. The right amount of chemicals and cleaning will prevent algae growth within your pool and stabilize the water so it will be ready for your family when it is time to jump in. All parts and accessories should be inspected for wear and tear and proper functionality including filters, pumps, heating systems, salt water and traditional chlorination systems, lighting, ladders, and slides. Keeping up with proper maintenance will ensure a safe and fun family summer.
