If you’re looking forward to a summer of fun in the sun, opening your Kayak above ground swimming pool correctly is an essential first step. While Kayak above ground pools are often easier to maintain than other above ground pools or their in-ground counterparts, there’s still a process involved that needs to be followed. Here’s how to open your Kayak above ground pool the right way, ensuring your summer starts off with a splash.
Don’t wait until summer arrives to get your above ground pool ready for swimming season. Start prepping your pool at least a month before you plan to open it, so that you can take care of any necessary repairs ahead of time and make sure everything is in working order. Take off your cover and inspect it. Store it in a safe place for the next time you need it.
Clean Out the Pool
Before you can open your Kayak above ground swimming pool, it’s essential to clean out any debris and dirt that may have accumulated during the fall and winter months. Clean out the pump basket and filter system of any leaves or twigs, as well as sweep away dirt from the walls with a brush. Depending on how long the pool has been closed, it may also be necessary to scrub out algae (with the appropriate tools) or other buildup.
Test the Water
Once your Kayak above ground pool is free of debris and dirt, you’ll need to check the water quality before anyone can start swimming. Test the pH balance of the water with a test strip, as well as the chlorine levels and alkalinity, if needed. If your water doesn’t meet the necessary standards, it may be necessary to shock treat or add a pool stabilizer.
Activate the Filter System
As the final step before you open your Kayak swimming pool, activate the filter system for a few hours and leave it running. This will help to circulate the water so it can be tested again, and make sure that all the necessary chemicals have been mixed in evenly. A KayakⓇ above ground swimming pool features a 3-way filtration system that creates a virtually maintenance-free pool, also known as a pool owner’s dream.
Once your above ground pool is clean and ready for swimming, it’s time for your grand entrance, via cannonball. Open your above ground pool the right way and enjoy summer days soaking up the sun with friends and family in your backyard oasis.
Kayak pools make a great addition to any backyard, and by following these steps you can ensure that your swimming pool is open and ready for the summer season.
