How to Open Your Pool

Doing it the right way can mean the difference between a summer of fun and a summer of headaches! Follow these important (and easy) steps to ensure a smooth, carefree pool opening in the spring. And remember, your local BioGuard® Dealer is always ready to assist with information tailored to your specific pool care needs.

  1. Remove pool cover (skip this step for new pools)
    Drain off any accumulated water on the cover away from your pool. Once removed, clean with BioGuard Stow-A-Way® to prevent sticking and odors. Store in a dry place, free of debris and protected from the sun and weather.
  2. Fill your pool
    Your pool should be filled to the middle of the skimmer opening to allow for proper circulation.
  3. Check your pump, skimmer basket & filter
  4. Get your water tested
    Be sure to circulate pool water 24 to 48 hours before taking a water sample. Using a clean plastic container (or better still, one that your dealer provides), scoop about one quart of water from elbow-depth. Seal the container and take it to your BioGuard Dealer for testing and analysis.
    BioGuard pioneered the idea of computerized water analysis. Over the past 25 years, we have used our resources to research, develop and refine the science of water analysis. Today, our computerized water analysis system provides accurate results almost instantly. You receive personalized instructions for starting the pool. Help keep your water perfectly balanced by bringing in a water sample at least once every month during the pool season.
  5. Test sanitizer & pH levels
    You can test sanitizer and pH levels yourself using the BioGuard 1200V Test Kit or BioGuard Test Strips to check free chlorine, total bromine residuals and pH levels and Total Alkalinity. Use the following chart to determine proper levels.
  6. Routine maintenance
    Routine maintenance is the best way to maintain your pool. And with one of BioGuard’s easy-to- use 3-step pool care programs, it’s as easy as 1-2-3! We even have a non-chlorine system-our SoftSwim® Program-if you prefer pool care that doesn’t use chlorine to sanitize!
