Springtime is the very best time to start getting your pool ready for summer.

So making your pool season preparations part of your spring cleaning is the most effective and best opportunity to truly do a great job to ensure that this year will be your best pool season yet.
Getting your pool ready during the springtime also helps you look forward to the summer even more. As you are cleaning it up and reconnecting all of the parts you need, you can start thinking about all of the great times you will have this summer. You can even start thinking about improvements that you might want to make, or start daydreaming about that great backyard barbecue that you plan on throwing this year.
You have a lot of work ahead of you.
To get ready for the summer, there is quite a bit of work to do. Cleaning, prepping, and properly sanitizing your pool can take a few days or it can even take a week or two. It really depends on how much work needs to be done, the type of pool and equipment you have, and how much time you are spending on it at a time.
The process starts with pulling out all of your equipment and supplies for your pool. Your pool’s entire circulatory system depends on a properly functioning pump system, so this is pretty much your most important piece of equipment. Before you hook it up and turn it on, you need to do a thorough inspection of every part and piece attached to the equipment. Check for loose parts, cracks, or damage from winter storage or that you might not have noticed when you put everything away for the winter. Pay special attention to any valves or fittings, and go ahead and lubricate parts that need it.
Getting your pool clean is one of the most important parts of getting your pool ready for pool season. This means that you must do your very best job at skimming, vacuuming, brushing, scrubbing, and ridding your pool of any calcification that may have built up over the winter. You will also need to shock the pool with chemicals and then balance the chemicals to sanitize the water to make it safe for swimming.
All in all, it can be a lot of work. If you do a great job and maintain that progress through the season, however, you will have a great looking pool to swim in without too much worry.
