WHEN A POOL is properly closed in the fall, the process of opening it
in the spring is a quick and simple one. Anyone who is familiar with a few
seasons of pool closings and openings knows, however, things can and do
happen. A few common examples of what can go wrong are: the pool is left
uncovered; the cover has collapsed into the pool; the pool was treated with
little or no algaecide at closing.
Many dealers and service companies will check a
pool once or twice during the off-season. Generally,
this is as simple as checking to ensure that the
cover is properly secured and has not come loose.
