Is your pool summer ready?

Is your pool summer ready?

There are over 10 million residential swimming pools in the US. In fact, swimming is one of the most popular sports in the country. That means eager swimmers will be lining up at your pool as summer approaches. But there's a lot to do before your pool is summer-ready.

If you winterized your pool for the cold months, make sure you reconnect the necessary pool equipment, such as your pump, filter, and heater. You may also have to take out any winterizing plugs from your return lines and skimmer.

But don't forget about other pool features. Make sure your ladders, handrails, diving boards, slides, etc. don't have any damage. Even small damages can make them unsafe to use.

Not sure what to do? Here are some tips that can help you

  • Clean out Any Debris
  • Adjust the Water Level (If Needed)
  • Make Sure All the Pool Equipment Is in Working Condition
  • Give your pool equipment a once over to make sure everything is in working condition. This should include your pumps, hoses, filters, and more.

Sit down as a family and create a list of pool rules that you all agree to. Learn CPR! And finally, if a child goes missing always check the pool first and always keep a phone near the pool while swimming in case of emergencies.
