Prepare Your Pool for a the warmer months in Florida.

Spring is almost here, and Florida is recovering from the deep freeze of Winter. Well not really. But unless you have a heated pool, your pool has probably not been used for many months. Summer will be here before you know it, but for most Floridians pool season starts when the weather warms up in the Spring. Will your pool be ready to help you beat the heat?

There are some do's and don'ts to bringing your pool up to speed for the Summer months. The number one thing you should not do is empty your pool. Depending on how saturated the water table is of the soil, if you empty your pool, it could potentially pop out of the ground. There are ways to creep clean your pool without completely draining it.

The first step in preparing your pool for opening day is to clean the filters and baskets while removing any plugs that make have been placed there for the Winter months. You can leave the cover on for now.

If your pool has gotten low over the last few months, it is a good idea to top off the water. Make sure all filters are clean and running correctly before turning them on.

The next part of getting your pool ready for Summer is usually best left to a professional pool tech. The water should be tested for the pH levels and different minerals and chlorine levels. You can take a sample of your pool water to a swimming pool store or have a tech come to your home. The tech can then add the right amount of shock and chlorine to your pool.

After a pool tech has maintained your pool, you need to wait for the water to clear. If you have a pool cover, it is best to leave it on until it is clear. It may take a week for the water to get less murky. You should be able to see the bottom before you dive in.

The best way to enjoy your swimming pool is to keep up with regular maintenance. A clean pool is a happy pool, which makes a happy pool owner.
