DEBRIS

  • When preparing to open your pool for the season, clean all leaves and other debris off the cover before removing it.

  • Empty your skimmer baskets frequently. You'll help minimize the amount of leaves that end up on the bottom of your pool.

  • When cleaning the surface of your pool with a leaf net, work your way around the sides first, then clean from the middle of the pool to the sides.

  • Empty your leaf net occasionally when cleaning your pool's surface. Otherwise, the net's contents may accidentally end up back in the pool.

  • Keep the trees and shrubs around your pool trimmed back to minimize the amount of leaves and debris that end up in the pool.

 

  • WATER CLARITY

  • When opening your pool at the beginning of the season, run your filter around the clock until the water is completely clear.

  • If your pool water appears green or has an unpleasant odor, the problem is probably caused by algae. Test for proper chlorine level, and consult a pool professional if the problem persists.

  • Keep your filter, pump, lint trap and skimmer baskets clean and in proper working condition to help ensure that your pool water stays sparkling clear.

  • Pool inlets should be adjusted so the surface water is moving in a circular direction.

  • Make a habit of checking and emptying skimmer and pump baskets regularly
