Preparing Your Pool for Summer Use

Remove the cover

After winter your pool cover can be quite dirty and covered with leaves and dirt. Have someone help you drain off all water and any debris to prevent it from falling into the pool when you remove the cover.

Reconnect the equipment

Turned off the power to the pool pump and heater prior to reconnecting the equipment. Change any filters, and inspect hoses and o rings for any damage before reconnecting, reploace parts as nessary.

Fill the pool

Fill the pool to the factory approved level. Usually it is about 3/4 above the skimmer bottom.

Clean the pool

Make sure you properly prime the pump before starting it. Use a pool vacuum to remove dirt and debris from the bottom and allow the skimmer to work for a few hours.

Adjust the pool water pH and alkalinity levels

The pH levels should be in between 7.2 and 7.6. The alkalinity level should be in between 80 to 120 PPM.

Shock the pool and adjust the chlorine level

The pools chlorine should be between 1 to 3 PPM.
