I am not sure how things are where you live but here we have had amazing weather. As I was on the back porch looking out across the yard I was thinking about prepping a pool for summer. There are many things you want to do to get your pool ready for use after sitting all winter long.
1. Make sure all the filters are cleaned and replaced
2. Skim the any debris or lose objects from the water
3. Use your scrubber to remove as much of the grim, algae and build-up from the underwater surfaces of the pool
4. Check your water level to be sure it is where it should be
5. Then you need to shock the water. If you are not familiar with a shock treatment to the water in your pool you may want to do a little reading up on it to know how best to do this for the size and shape of your pool. Basically shocking the water is putting a large dose of chlorine into the water to turn the water extremely acidic and kill off all the germs and other contaminants that may be present in the water. Many places sell specific water shock chemicals specifically for doing this.
6. After you have shocked the water and allowed it to sit for the recommended amount of time you will then need to do a reading on the water to determine what chemicals need to be added to bring your pool to the correct levels for use
Once you have gone through this process your pool is ready to be enjoyed all summer long.
