How to Get Your Swimming Pool Ready for Summer

As summer approaches and the temperatures are on the rise, it’s time to start getting your above ground pool ready for all of your warm-weather plans. Make sure your pool and entertainment space are prepared to take on your summertime plans. The team at Discount Pools Direct is here to help you get your chemicals balanced, ensure your pool pump and parts are in good working order, and match you with the right pool accessories for your outdoor plans. 

Remove Your Pool Cover

Begin by clearing away any leaves, sticks, or debris that have accumulated on the top of your pool cover. Then, detach the straps keeping your cover in place and carefully remove the cover by pulling it toward you, making sure to keep the top facing up. Avoid allowing the cover to dip into the water as much as possible. Don’t forget to place your pool cover out to dry and inspect it for any damage before storing it for the season. 

Clean Any Trash, Debris, and Dirt from Your Swimming Pool

Using a skimming net, dip out any leaves or floating debris from the pool. This is also the time to vacuum away any sediment trash that has settled at the bottom of your pool. 

Evaluate the Condition of Your Pool Accessories

This is the perfect time to take a look at your pool’s pump, chlorinator, and robotic cleaning tool to ensure they are functioning properly and ready to take on the summer swimming season. You should also check out your pool’s ladder to make sure it’s in good condition. This is also a great time to take a look at your pool toys that have been stored all winter to ensure they are free of bugs, dust, and dirt and ready for your next poolside gathering.

Ensure Your Pool Chemicals are Balanced

Once the major particles and dirt have been removed from your pool, it’s time to evaluate your pool’s chemicals to make sure the pool is properly clean and balanced for your family’s outdoor fun.
