The Key to Maintaining Your Above Ground Swimming Pool
It may be the dead of winter, but take heart: it will soon be time to prepare your above ground pool for summer fun in the sun.
Here, Patrick Nesbitt, co-founder of Roscha Pools, discusses the importance of properly maintaining above ground swimming pools. Roscha has installed thousands of above ground pools for satisfied customers across Dutchess, Putnam, Ulster, Columbia, Greene, and Rockland counties over the past three decades.
Maintenance, says Nesbitt, is key to ensuring a safe, well-maintained pool – along with clear, sparkling water for friends and family to enjoy all summer long.
Please talk about the importance of proper closings and openings for pool owners.
Like any other investment, such as your car or your home, your above ground pool needs to be protected and maintained, so that it can be fully enjoyed for many years to come.
Should people try to do their own openings and closings?
It’s really not advisable. If you don’t know the correct procedure, it can become very time consuming and complex task, and you probably won’t do it correctly. If you run into a problem, Google won’t be able to help! Roscha pools can take all the hassle and headache out of your swimming pool openings and closings.
Can you walk us through the above ground pool opening process?
Our standard above ground pool opening services include starting up the equipment, as well as system diagnostics, verifying the heater operation and lubing the safety cover anchors. We also check and install equipment plugs, return fittings, rails, skimmer baskets and a host of other equipment. We can also treat the pool with chlorine or chlorine salt water, according to your specific above ground pool system.
How long does the pool opening take?
A pool opening process typically takes less than a day.
What does the above ground pool closing process entail?
An above ground pool closing basically involves “winterizing” the pool. This is principally to protect it from damage due to freezing water. Another reason to close the above ground pool correctly is to keep it as clean as possible for the next season.
Closing your swimming pool properly can save you a lot of work when it comes time to open the swimming pool for the summer. We drain the pool’s water and remove the directional fittings and install the freeze plugs. We also shut off the filter pump, drain all equipment and store as recommended by the pool manufacturer. We also add swimming pool anti-freeze. Then, of course, we cover the pool with a durable plastic cover for safety and for its protection.
What’s the most common type of repair you encounter?
Definitely, liner repair! Problems with your above ground pool liner are generally caused by a leak or a misaligned liner bead. If it’s left unfixed, it can end up causing cause considerable damage.
