Any time after January 1st each season you can call the store to schedule your opening/closing. They WILL NOT be scheduled with the service crew.

The earlier you call the better your choice of dates; the calendar often fills up fast.

All open orders must be settled before other services may be scheduled.

Any follow up service work due to homeowner oversights will incur an additional charge.

hello there

Opening Checklist

A few key things to remember when preparing for the opening of your pool

 

- ensure that your cover is clear and dry as much as possible

any debris left on the cover may fall into your pool

the service men will not be able to clear your cover for you

- check the water level, make sure it is mid-level of the skimmer

this is very important and ensures that the service men will get your filter up and running

- the service men will need access to water and electricity

to ensure equipment is clean and working properly to open your pool

- leave out opening chemicals and equipment 

if you don't have any chemicals, the service men keep a supply just for openings in the vans as well as equipment. So if you are short or missing anything, they are prepared! (additional charges will apply)

opening chemicals would be Double Dose of shock, tablets (for the chlorinator),DE (if you have a DE filter)

equipment would be your baskets (filter AND skimmer), wall fittings, pressure gauge and any other parts for the regular operation of your pool.  If we closed your pool last season we usually keep all the small stuff together. also: ladders, rails, rope floats etc.

we re-install heater burner trays for an additional charge

we can rinse or clean your filter for an additional charge

if the service men are there for a length of time for repairs or anything else there may be an addtional charge for labor per hour

we offer free water testing in our retail store
