Pool Opening Procedure:-All Steps Must be followed
Before our team arrives, the following tasks need to be done:
1. Allow Access to the Pool - Make sure all gates are unlocked and we have full access to your pool and equipment.
2. Drain and Clean Off Your Pool Cover -Pool covers MUST be cleaned off as best as possible.
TARP COVERS: If the cover is full of water and debris we WILL NOT open your pool and will reschedule for a later date.
This policy will be strictly enforced. It is the pool owners responsibility to maintain the pool cover over the offseason, if the cover has not been
maintained and is full of water and debris we will not be able to open the pool.
3.Leave all skimmer baskets/ jets, ladders, handrails and equipment by the pool or filter.
If we cannot find them we will not be able to put them in place, If we need to return for a return visit due to missing items or items not being
left out there will be an ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
4.Turn on Power to the filter and allow access to pool timer and breaker.
If we are not able to run the system the system cannot be checked for leaks, If we need to return for a return visit due to missing items or
items not being left out there will be an ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
5.Fill Pool Water level to Proper Levels before our arrival (halfway up skimmer)
If we are not able to run the pool and need to return to turn the pool and inspect the system for any issues ADDITIONAL CHARGES apply.
We do not need anyone to be present at the time of pool opening, Due a very full schedule we will not be able to provide exact arrival times,
we do apologize for this but as long as we have access to the pool and pool equipment and the above steps are followed we will be able to
complete the pool opening as scheduled.
If issues arise during the opening process that require repairs, a separate service call will be needed. Repairs are not included as part of the
opening process. This would include leaking pipes, Pump/motor issues, Leaking Filters, electrical issues etc.
Cleaning and Chemicals are not included in the opening process unless requested.
