Spring Forward: Open Your Pool Sooner Than Later

EMBRACE THE POOL SEASON BEFORE MEMORIAL WEEKEND...

If you're tired of dark afternoons, hold on tight as daylight saving time is March 12. The change comes eight days ahead of the spring equinox on March 20.

We’ve enjoyed a few days of warm temperatures, and we like to let all pool owners know that it's really okay to embrace the pool season in March or early April. There's this mindset that the pool gets scheduled to be open on Memorial Weekend.  Why is that?

There are more pros then cons when opening the pool sooner than later.  Obviously, we will always have Mother Nature playing an important role in every outdoor activity.

We will focus on Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

SPRING FEVER—PLAN AHEAD AND GET ON THE CALENDAR...

You probably don't think of opening your pool until warmer weather reminds you, but you may find our schedule has already filled up by then.  Call us to schedule your pool opening in the beginning of the year especially if you have a specific date you want your pool open. Don’t delay this simple process.  Or, better yet, request your pool opening services online.

BEST TIME TO OPEN POOL—MARCH AND EARLY APRIL...

Algae Growth—Don’t Wait Until Memorial Weekend!

The sooner you open, the more likely you are to find a cleaner pool when that cover comes off.  If you are using a mesh winter cover, sunlight is getting through, and your pool can become a breeding ground for various types of algae.

When opening your pool in the early months of March and April means less chance of algae growth. This, of course, will depend if you winterized your pool properly.

Keeping the pool clean and algae-free means catching it before it goes into full bloom.

Grant it, algae grows no matter what, but change in temperatures, especially in warmer temps, create a perfect environment for algae growth.

IF ANYTHING CAN GO WRONG, IT WILL...

As the saying goes in our house when you are having a huge holiday party, your kitchen stove decides to play tricks on you.  Always consider the possibility of some aging piece of equipment which may need to be repaired or, the inevitable, the need to replace.  Unfortunately, pool equipment does get worn out, so always be prepared for the worst at the worst times.

SAVE MONEY—EARLY BUY CHEMICAL DISCOUNT WITH FREE DELIVERY...

By opening the pool earlier than later, there’s a good chance that you will use less chemicals than having the pool open in late Spring when the temps have already been consistently 70 degrees or more.  Again, algae is your worst offender when it comes to your water chemistry.  Warmer weather means more algae, chemicals, time and money.

When buying pool chemicals, stock up, and take advantage of our Early Buy Chemical Sale. We offer the best price early in the season in addition to free delivery.

Now, enjoy that cup of coffee on the patio, and take advantage of the swimming pool season.
