Ahh, the promise of spring is right around the corner in Fort Wayne, Indiana. And we hope that shortly after spring arrives will be the glorious months of summer, when we can all take in as much swimming as possible before the temps dip again. With the arrival of warmer temperatures, the question always begs to ask: When do I open my swimming pool? While there’s no magical date that you must abide by, there are a few things to keep in mind before you decide when to open your pool.
Watch for Consistent Weather
If the temperatures seem like they’re on a roller coaster, it might still be too early in the season to open your pool. It’s best to wait until the weather is more consistent. Around 70 degrees is usually a safe bet. Watch for the temperatures to hover around that number for a few days before you take the pool open plunge.
Stock Up on Chemicals and Supplies
Before you commit to pool maintenance for the summer, you should make sure you have pool open chemicals. If not, stocking up at the beginning of the season is probably a good idea. This way, you’ll be sure not to interrupt any precious swimming time. It’s important to balance out the chemicals in your pool before anyone steps foot in it. Despite your best intentions, harmful bacteria or algae might have developed in your pool during the cold months.
While you’re at it, make sure you have enough supply of pH testing strips so that you can ensure pool chemical levels are stable all summer long. Tredway Pools Plus is your one-stop shop for a pool open kit.
