What’s Not Included In Pool Opening
After the winter, we expect a little water and some leaves on your cover, but we charge extra if we have to take twenty minutes to a half hour or more, to pump water off the cover, and pull the leaves off. Vacuuming the pool is not included in a standard opening service. Also, we do not install ladders for insurance reasons. Finally, it is expected that your pool filter was cleaned when the pool was closed for the season, as such we do not provide this service while opening the pool.
Surprise – Extra Fees to Avoid - Nobody likes surprises. If your pool needs additional work we charge $75.00 per half hour. Also, we have a half hour minimum. If we have to come back to vacuum the pool, we will charge a $75.00 service visit, and then $75.00 for the vacuum.
Run pool for 2-3 days, backwash as needed. Skim leaves,
vacuum pool, and check water chemistry.
