Pool Opening Form

Pool Opening Form

Your pool should be opened by a trained professional. We can identify potential problems that could lead to needed repairs and updates to your equipment to keep your pool running efficiently during the summer. We also provide tips and water care information for your pool.


During your pool opening, we will perform the following services:



A few notes on your opening.


During the winter months, your pool may have turned green or black depending on the water chemistry or weather when your pool was closed, this is normal and will take additional chemicals to clear up your pool. Usually, a pool will turn around in 1-3 days depending on the color or issue in the water. We will not add salt into your pool. You must get your water tested and purchase this separately to prevent a surplus of salt and having to drain the pool down. 


Please note this is not a pool cleaning. 

This service is to open the pools equipment and get it running/circulating. The chemical kit mentioed above will be added, the pool walls and floors will be brushed. The pool will only be vaccumed if it is requested below at an additional fee. This is considered a "blind vac" as most pools we will not be able to see the vacuum and is for a 30 minute time peroid. Your pool will still require some additional attention, chemicals and cleaning after the opening is completed. 


Winter covers, like mesh or tarps still allow debris into your pool while it is closed and will require you to vacuum your pool after it has been opened. Vacuuming is an additional service that must be requested in advance and added to your order for an additional charge. 


Any additional repairs that were not made during the off season, will be noted on your work order, and if it requires an additional service call, that is an additional charge for us to return to your pool after the remainder of the openings have been finished. Light repairs can be made, but not all repairs can and will be fixed during your opening.


Once your pool has been opened and circulating, please bring in a water sample within 2-3 days to our retail location at 10806 Kingston Pike in Knoxville. We will recommend the proper chemicals to add to your pool and any maintenance dosages needed to keep your pool healthy during the summer! We will have a spring chemical sale and pool school this spring as well, follow our Facebook page or make sure you are on our mailing list, so you don’t miss these dates.


We only open in-ground pools.
