Return Visit

Pre-season opening procedures for your pool are extremely important.  In addition to water balance and filtration there are several other important components to your pools opening.   Swimming pool enclosure, safety equipment, 911 phone and the bathhouse along with many others need to be in compliance in order to guarantee Health Department Seasonal Opening Approval.  It is now required in all Michigan Counties that commercial pools are inspected by the County prior to the pools opening.  Pristine Pools Pre-Season Service will help ensure a timely pool opening.  The following will be preformed at the Pre-Season Service:

  • Water will be chemically balanced into proper range.
  • Pool deck will be thoroughly cleaned and weeded.
  • Pool furniture will be removed from storage and arranged on deck (must be stored onsite).
  • All safety equipment will be thoroughly inspected for state compliance.
  • We will make certain all required signage is onsite and visible per State regulations.
  • Bathhouse will be inspected; we will ensure the facility meets State requirements.
  • Detailed checklist is preformed; any issues will be immediately reported to management.
  • We will schedule and attend the opening Health Department Inspection.
