Seasonal Prep

Opening and closing swimming pools at the beginning and end of each swimming season may seem pretty simple, but the process is actually a lot more in-depth than you might think.

Properly preparing swimming pools for the season takes more than just taking off the cover and diving in. And if you want to keep your pool well maintained and in good shape during the offseason months, you need to do more than simply put a cover on and forget about the pool.

We offer seasonal prep services for swimming pools that can open and close your pool the right way – increasing the longevity of your pool and its equipment and your enjoyment of your property.

  • Activate and re-assemble filter system
  • Re-install deck equipment
  • Test for proper water chemistry
  • Lightly clean pool deck
  • Super chlorinate and add a stain controller
  • Check and attempt to start up heater (if present). If heater fails to work, we can service heater at an additional cost at a later date. (We will not start up unsafe or improperly installed heaters.)
