When To Open Your Pool

We typically begin opening pools when the weather starts to get a bit warmer. This is generally around the March and April months, but because it is dependent on the weather it can vary a bit.

The biggest aspect to consider is that opening your pool late in the season can increase the risk of issues and start up costs. With a rise in heat you can expect and even hotter atmosphere underneath your cover, creating a very enticing environment for algae and bacteria to grow. If your pool is sitting in this type of environment you can expect to see algae growth which may mean a larger start up cost as well as a longer duration of time to get your pool cleared and prepared for the season! Any questions about when you should open, give us a call and speak with a professional to learn more!
