Preparing a swimming pool for summer-time usage varies based on the climate.
In warmer areas, there isn’t much to do other than the normal routine of maintaining proper water chemistry and removing yard debris like leaves from the pool. In colder climates, pools are often closed, or shut down, for the winter in preparation for freezing temperatures. In these climates, when the pool start-up is done, pool owners are accustomed to preparing their backyard for the new season because they’ve always had to be more intentional to maximize their swimming season. Pools in these areas need to have the water chemistry balanced, pool pumps re-started, and pool equipment adjusted.
In both cases, safety products like your automatic pool cover or removable pool fence should be inspected and prepared for the season. Time spent now could save time and money later.
Cover Care and Poolsafe offer an Annual System Maintenance program for automatic pool covers of all brands in which we thoroughly inspect the pool cover mechanism and components for damage or signs of significant wear, make operational adjustments, and clean out the tracks and cover box. The purpose is to help you keep your pool maintained and in optimal working order so that your cover works the way you expect during the months when you are using your pool.
Occasionally, customers will decide to skip this maintenance to save money, which is understandable. Most of the time there is no problem because our products are so reliable, but sometimes simple issues that could have been fixed become bigger issues that result in down-time for the pool.
Pool owners that no longer have children living in the home would still be wise to maintain their pool cover and pool fence because neighbors or visitors may show up that are not good swimmers.
We want to help our customers keep their pool safe. We are experts and can quickly identify and rectify any potential issues. Even when we don’t find any issues, your pool cover will be receiving the care that will help it last longer and perform better.
Whether you use our service or not, please make sure to inspect your safety pool products for any potential safety issues that should be addressed. Please call us if you need us. We are here for you!
