Open Your Pool Party For Spring

Pool Party

Spring is only 2 weeks away, so if you haven’t done so already, now might be a great time to dewinterize your pool! If your pool wasn’t closed for fall/winter, then it might be time for some extra TLC and maintenance before Easter (April 5)!

Easter often means family visits! Have the family come to you this year (bonus points for not having to drive yourself, right?) and entertain with the pool you’ve just opened up.Here’s a few ways to use your pool to entertain in a Spring/Easter theme!

  1. Easter Egg Hunt—UNDERWATER! Adults and kids alike will love diving for eggs filled with coins or marbles (bonus idea: color code marbles in the egg to mean different prizes).
  2. Pastel bathing suits: Snatch up a few spring-themed bathing suits with floral print, pastel colors, or even bright pinks and greens.
  3. Get some new pool party toys: Bring in some pool rafts, floaties, and tubes in fun patterns and colors to match the Easter décor you pop up.
  4. Grill: Sure, you can have a ham dinner like everyone else, or you can spice things up and cook a ham in a fire pit or grill by the pool. Or forget the ham and go for hamburgers with bacon!
  5. Entertain the family with the pool party instead of taking trips: What better way to relax with family than swimming, playing pool party games, and relaxing near a body of water? Don’t worry about having to entertain every member of the family the whole time they’re visiting, the pool party can do that for you!
  6. Bonus: Hot tubs and spas are a great way to unwind after a big Easter dinner and running around with the kids!

De-winterization Time : Spring is Coming!

Time for De-winterization

Spring is fast approaching (19 days, people!) so that means the temperatures will be rising and it may be time to open the pool back up! Get it done for Spring so you don’t have to fight for scheduling in the summer to get our assistance. The sooner you get it done, the sooner you can be enjoying the sun and warm weather again in your personal pool!

Today we’ll talk about what goes on with opening a pool after winter. You winterized it, so let’s bring it back to its cool, wet glory!

  1. De-winterizationRemove debris, dirt, leaves, etc. from the cover. Allowing this to get into the water means more cleaning and strain on the filters. Before you store the cover, rinse it off and use some soap to remove dirt, mold, or mildew. Let it fully dry before storing.
  2. Once the cover is removed, your pool should be mostly clean, spare some dirt on the bottom. If this is not the case, some more extreme cleaning measures may be needed.
  3. Reconnect any equipment and reset circuits. This includes power to the pool, pumps, and heaters. Reattach filter cartridges or replace the sand in the filter. Use water-based lubricant on all o-rings, remove winterizing plugs, and free the skimmer basket/
  4. Contact your water company to check for pool-fill-up discounts since your water loss was due to evaporation, meaning it didn’t go through the water treatment plants. Some companies will offer a yearly discount on your water bill for pool filling.
  5. Ensure water is covering the skimmer. While filling, Hook the outflow hose from the skimmer to the pump and tighten clamps. Turn on the pump once the skimmer is covered. Check for leaks in hoses and gaskets.
  6. De-winterizationVacuum the pool. Do this before adding chemicals.
  7. Test the pH levels of the pool if the water is clear. The levels should range from 7.8-7.8. Adjust as needed. Add your start up kit once the pH is balanced, following the directions of the kit.
  8. If your pool is green, you may need to use a chlorine shock process accompanied with a lowering of the pH. Once the algae is dead the pool sufaces need to be brushed to remove the remaining algae, using a clarifier to cause everything to sink to the bottom. A vacuum should suffice at this point.
  9. Test chlorine and other chemical levels before allowing swimmers to enter.
  10. For heating the pool, a solar cover may help if you don’t have or don’t want to use a heater.

This process can be done on your own, but out Pool Daddy technicians can do this quickly, efficiently, and with no effort on your part. This can start up weekly services or it can be one of the few times you need our services during the pool season. Whether you have an above-ground or in-ground pool, residential or commercial, we can de-winterize your pool so all you have to do is jump in when the temperatures start rising and enjoy your pool!
