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.
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
