It’s a lengthy process, but don’t worry… we’re almost there! The last step of the pool opening process is to check the bottom of your pool for algae and give it a good shock.
If you have our Pool Opening and Closing Kit, you’ll notice that it comes with a Liquid Algaecide Concentrate. So, if you notice algae in your pool, you’ll want to use this product to get rid of it. Simply add the algaecide to kill off the algae, and then, after 24 hours, vacuum the dead algae out of your pool.
Once your pool water is free of algae, you’ll want to eliminate all of the remaining bacteria and contaminants by shocking it. You can use the Multi-Purpose Shock that comes in our Pool Opening and Closing Kit to do so.
That’s it! We know it may seem like a long process, but it’s absolutely necessary in order to effectively and properly open your pool, having a safe and fun season. Plus, with our Pool Opening and Closing Kit, you’ll find that you have most of, if not all of, the products you need to get the job done. Of course, if you have any issues, questions, or concerns, you can always visit any of our Discounter’s Pool and Spa Warehouse locations to speak with our experts on staff. Enjoy the process and happy pool opening everyone!
