Pool Opening (2 hour minimum, typically takes 4 hours)

The opening process includes 3-4 visits over a 7 day period.  The time of year and complexity of the pool will determine the number and length of visits needed.

1st Visit Remove pool cover, clean immediate deck area and clean the water line. Assess if equipment can be started and what chemicals will be needed. Begin filling the pool.

2nd Visit Start up or inspect equipment and make minor repairs, if necessary. Inspect and install automatic cleaner. Test and adjust chemical levels.

Final Visits Perform final cleaning and balance chemistry levels. Adjust water features, autofills and schedules if applicable. Clean the filters to remove the opening debris and set the stage for a successful season. For salt water pools, we will inspect and clean the salt cell and add necessary salt.

We strive to provide an exceptional full service opening experience, which requires very little involvement from our customers.  Please notify our office if you do not want Baker Pool to complete the final steps of the opening process outlined above in the Final Visits section.
