Frequently Asked Questions

The most frequently asked questions we get on pool openings or closing, are "when is the right time to open or close my pool?" and "how can I prevent my pool from being green in the spring?"

When to open and close is really up to you.  We recommend having the pool closed before we have freezing temperatures.  Although the plumbing will be fine with the pump on, there is always the risk of losing power which could lead to serious damage to the pool’s filtration equipment.

The best way to prevent your pool from being green or black in the spring is to open your pool in early spring such as April and to close your pool when the water temp is 65 degrees or less.  When the water temp is below 65, the algae growth will be minimal or nonexistent.  So, if you can open the pool before the water rises above 65, you can start the equipment and start balancing the water.  At this time, turning the heater on is not necessary, and the pool will require very few chemicals.  In most cases, the added cost of running the pump an extra month will be far less than the amount of chemicals needed to clear a green or black pool.
