Opening Your Swimming Pool 2023

As a pool owner, time and effort spent on you pool can be considerable so It is important to know when the right time is to open your pool. Opening your pool too early or too late in the season can result in expensive repairs or a less time having fun in your pool.

One issue to consider when deciding to open your swimming pool is the weather, and in the UK this can be a tricky one. Ideally, you wait until the weather is warm enough for swimming. If the weather is too cold, the water in your pool will be too cold to comfortably swim in. Using a heat pump like our Norsup or Hydropro range to heat the pool water is the most popular way, but heat pumps can take a few days to get the pool to an acceptable temperature in the early spring months when the evening overnight and early morning temperature is still on the cool side.

Another factor to consider is the condition of your pool. Before you open your pool, you should inspect it for any damage or leaks that may have occurred during the winter. This includes checking the pool's liner, pump, filter, and other equipment to ensure that everything is in good working order. If you notice any issues, it's best to address them before you open your pool to avoid costly repairs later on. The most frustrating time to find a fault in your pool is when the weather is warm and you are ready to use it, so checking for any issues early is the key.

Once you've determined that the weather is warm enough and your pool is in good condition, it's time to start preparing your pool for opening. This includes cleaning and vacuuming the pool, adding chemicals to balance the water, and checking the pH levels. It's also a good idea to replace any worn or damaged parts, such as the pool filter or pump, before you open your pool.
When it comes to reopening your swimming pool, one of the most important things to do is to clean it thoroughly. This includes removing any debris, such as leaves or branches, that may have accumulated in the pool over the winter. You should also use a pool vacuum to remove any sediment that may have settled on the bottom of the pool. Once the pool is clean, you can add chemicals to balance the water and bring the pH levels back to normal.

Another important step in reopening your pool is to check the equipment. This includes inspecting the pool pump, filter, and heater to make sure that everything is in good working order. If you notice any issues, such as a clogged filter or a broken pump, you should have them repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Finally, it's important to test the water before you start swimming. This includes checking the pH levels, chlorine levels, and other chemical levels to ensure that the water is safe for swimming. If the water is not balanced properly, it can cause skin irritation or other health problems.
