Have Questions?

We've got answers!
I have a safety cover, is it going to take two visits?

Nope! Safety covers can be started day of and only need 1 visit. This is one of the reasons we recommend you install one as it saves you time and money when it comes to opening your pool.

How many visits is a full pool opening?

We come 2 times for a full pool opening. The first time 90% of the work is done then we ask you to fill up the pool to the skimmer line, call us and then we will come back to start the system.

How long does it take to open my pool?

On average its 2 hours. However this ranges from pool to pool depending on size, cover and condition of the pool.

While you're opening my pool, will you show me how my pool system works?

Our crew members usually work very late into the evening to make sure everyones pool is opened on time so unfortunately they can not spend extra time to explain the system to you. However, we do offer a Pool School where one of our lead techs will come out to your house for an hour and answer any questions you have about your pool!

I want to be home for my pool opening, will you call me on your way?

Of course! Just let our admin staff know when you book the appointment and they will add a note to your file.

Do I have to be home for my pool opening?

Nope! Just make sure we have access to the backyard.

What time will you come to open my pool?

Unfortunately it’s really hard for us to give an exact time of when we will be at your house. This is because we never know how long a pool will take to open until we get there! What we can do is send you an email the day before letting you know where you are on our list for the day and roughly what time we will be there at.

When should I test my water after the pool is opened?

We recommend our customers let the water circulate for a few days after opening the pool before taking their water into a pool store to be tested.

Will my pool be sparkling clean after the first vacuum?

We really wish we could say yes to this but unfortunately it all depends on the pool and how dirty it is (i.e lots of debris, green, leaves). Some pools can take multiple visits to get clean and operational – this is why we always recommend opening early!

I've already removed the pool cover myself, can you come and start the system?

Of course! Just make sure your water level is halfway up the skimmer line before we arrive.

I have an attached spa - how much more does it cost to open?

We charge an additional $95 for the attached spas. The reason being the system tends to be more complicated and so we have to take more time to ensure it is set up properly.

What's included in a full pool opening and safety cover opening?

We like to assure our customers that our pool openings include pretty much everything to get you set up for the summer! The full list of what is included can be found on our pool opening page.

When should I open my pool?

Even better question! We have a full blog post outlining when you should open your pool. For the short and sweet answer usually one week in advance of when you plan to use it is best! If you have a safety cover – open it as soon as possible. Leaving your pool closed for too long will cause the water to go green and may take weeks to get clear again.

How do you open a pool?

Great question! We could explain it in words, but we've made an awesome video to show you instead.
