Learn more about what you can expect from your pool opening experience with Benson Pools.
Cover Removal and Cleaning
The pool cover can be extremely heavy and awkward, making it difficult and even dangerous to remove on your own. And if you’re not careful, you could end up ripping it or puncturing holes when you’re pulling it off the pool and dragging it on the ground. During this time of year, the cover is also typically coated in dirt and grime after the long winter season. Heavy wet leaves, dirt, and other guck can add to the mess and frustrations when lifting and removing it. Fortunately, you won’t have to struggle with any of that when hiring our team at Benson Pools. We’ll safely remove the cover for you, empty any water bags, and skim and bag all the leaves for you. We’ll even clean and fold it up for you so that all you’ll have to do is store it away for the season. No fuss or hassle!
After the cover is removed, the pool will likely have some leaves and other debris on top as well as inside that require cleaning. There might even be slimy green buildup and dirt along the pool lining that will need to be washed and vacuumed away. Our team can also handle this entire cleaning process for you. We’ll bring our own pump and vacuum and take care of the silt and dirt removal so that your pool will be sparkling clean when you jump in!
Equipment Install and Priming
We’ll even install all of your equipment for you, including the filter, the heater, and the pool lights and ladders. Our team will reassemble all of the necessary parts of your pool. Then we’ll prime the pump and make sure everything is working properly.
The most important part of the pool opening service is the start-up process. This involves testing the water and adding the right amount of chemicals to shock the pool and kill off any harmful bacteria. The chemicals used will also help control algae growth and keep the pool nice and clean. Our team will ensure that the water is safe for swimming once we’re done. If there’s a specific wait time required, we’ll provide you with all the instructions you need.
