Tips for Opening Your Above Ground Pool

The good times are upon us. Warmer weather puts us in the mood for a long, luxurious swim and splash fights in the pool.

Can’t just dive right in, though. No, no, no. There’s always a bit of work before the party starts. Here are a couple of tips for getting your Sun Pools aboveground pool ready for fun and frolicking.

  1. Let’s get any standing water off the pool cover, so that we can remove it from the pool, clean it, and put it away.
  2. Check the water level of the pool. Too low? Add water.
  3. Time to give the pump and other equipment a wakeup call. Turn your system on and let it run, making sure there are no peculiar noises or leaks.
  4. The water will surely need chlorinating and a test of the water for its chemical composition. If the pH gets higher than 7.8, the water is too alkaline. That reduces the effectiveness of the chlorine — the pool chemical that kills pathogens. Adding muriatic acid will lower the pH.
  5. Vacuum the pool. Then jump in!
