I have never owned a pool before. Can you tell me how to open it?

Each pool is unique but, generally, opening your pool involves:

  1. Removing the water and debris from the winter pool cover
  2. Removing the winter cover
  3. Removing the plumbing plugs that were installed during winterizing
  4. Reassembling your pump and filter system
  5. Refilling the pool
  6. Balancing the water chemistry
  7. Restarting your equipment.

You may wish to have your pool opened professionally the first time to see how it is done before you attempt to do it yourself.
