Getting Your Pool Prepared for the Spring

Pool Maintenance From Admiral Pools

Here is what you need to do to get your pool ready for spring.

The weather is warming up more, and that means your dreams of swimming in your pool will no longer remain dreams. You will soon be able to go swimming once again, and all that’s left to be done is to prepare your pool for the warmer seasons. Here is what you need to do to get your pool ready for spring.

Get Your Pool Cover Cleaned

Your pool cover will have accumulated quite a bit of debris over the winter. If the cover has collected any water, get the cover’s sides tightened. Then, get rid of all of the gathered water with the assistance of a cover pump. A mesh net is the tool of choice for any solid debris on your pool cover.

Removing the Cover

Empty out water bags you may have used to keep the cover weighed down during winter. After you remove the side weights, fold your cover like an accordion and remove it from your pool. Then, simply set your pool cover to the side, let it dry, then pack it up for the next time you use it.


Take some time to inspect your pool’s pump, plugs, basket, and skimmer. Replace any components that have sustained too much damage. For anything that only has minor damage, it might be possible to repair it with the help of waterproof products.

Get Your Pool’s Filtration System Started

While they are useful for stopping water from freezing during the winter, you need to get the winter plugs out of your pool. Get your pump and filter built again, and reattach all of the plugs and hoses you have.

Something important to remember is that you should get the air out of all of the equipment and plumbing you have. This is because air becomes compressed while filtrating is happening, and this can be dangerous. Get your filter started and monitor your pressure levels to be sure they are where they need to be.
