Tips for pool opening

  • Open your pool as soon as possible at the beginning of the season.  The best months are April or very early May.  This way dirt and debris do not have the time to affect water quality and you are ready to use the pool when the temperature is warmer.
  • Take out your pool accessories to hand over to the Piscines et Spas POSEIDON technicians (pump, salt system, diving board, ladder, and other accessories). 
  • Lock the entry to the pool so that children cannot access it without supervision.
  • If the filtration system is in the garden shed, you need to clean it up so that there is space around the filtration system.  
  • If you notice damage to pool equipment or structure, advise Piscines et Spas POSEIDON as soon as possible so that we are equipped to perform the repairs at the same time as your pool opening or shortly after.
