Waukesha Wisconsin Pool Service
Opening up your swimming pool is a job for professionals. New Wave Pools LLC has more than 50 years of combined experience in residential and commercial pool services, and we are now serving the Waukesha, WI community.

There are three levels of service as well as additional services to suit your level of participation in opening up your pool this spring.

Auto-cover Maintenance $179.99

Things to do before New Wave Pools LLC opens your swimming pool;
• Have gate unlocked
• Raise water to the top of the skimmer faceplate for vacuuming purposes
• Have a garden hose hooked up and the water turned on to the spigot
• Have the breaker turned on inside the house for the equipment
• Have any chemicals from last year out by the swimming pool (Chlorine Tablets, Algaecide, Clarifier, Metal Free, Bags of Salt, etc.)
• Have your skimmer baskets, backwash hose, handrails, bag for winter cover, and ladders out by the swimming pool

At the opening of your swimming pool New Wave Pools LLC will;
• Remove the winter cover and put it in the bag, remove winterizing plugs, and lower deck anchors
• Install the light, handrails, ladders, skimmer baskets, and add the initial dosage of chemicals to the swimming pool
• Install plugs in equipment, attach backwash hose, prime pump, and flush antifreeze to waste
• Test fire heater, fix minor leaks on equipment (major leak repairs are subject to an additional charge), and backwash filter
• If requested, vacuum pool to waste and broom towards main drain (A second touch up vacuuming may be needed)

After your swimming pool opening you should;
• Raise water level and vacuum swimming pool to waste to remove heavy debris and vacuum to filter if there is light debris, backwashing afterwards
• Brush the swimming pool frequently towards the bottom main drain, to keep smaller debris suspended which allows the filter to remove the debris
• Backwash the filter once you see an 8-10 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) increase on the pressure gauge which is located on the filter. Do not backwash before the pressure raises 8-10 PSI. A partially dirty filter will help to remove fine particles in the water that cause cloudiness
• When backwashing continue until the water in the sight glass or at the end of the backwash hose is clear and not cloudy (2 min)
• The swimming pool pump should run 24 hours a day, at the highest speed setting that the circulation pump offers, this will speed up the cleaning process. Continue this process until the swimming /pool water is clear enough to see the face on a quarter on the bottom of the pool. Once the water is clear the motor can be ramped down and the timers/automation turned on
• If the water in the swimming pool does not start to clear up in a couple of days, schedule a sand change, the sand in the filter will need to be replaced (Recommended every 3 years)
• For swimming pools with cartridge filters, inspect/clean or replace the cartridge(s) if the water remains cloudy
• It is important to brush the swimming pool and keep a minimum free chlorine level of 1 PPM (Parts per Million) to stop further algae growth
• Once the swimming pool is clean, and the free chlorine level is adjusted to 1-2 PPM, then start adjusting the Total Alkalinity and pH levels. Starting with the Total Alkalinity, then adjusting the pH. Check the stabilizer (CYA) levels and add as needed. Chlorine generated pools (salt) are recommended to have a higher stabilizer PPM level, see manufacturers instruction book for recommendations
• Salt should not be added to the pool until water temperatures are above 65 degrees. The controller will give a false low salt reading until the water reaches 65 degrees
• Automatic swimming pool cleaners should not be used for the initial cleaning of the swimming pool, and should not be used in water below 65 degrees. The hoses are not as flexible in cold water, which will cause the cleaner to malfunction
• If you have an auto-cover it is important to leave the cover open for 1 or 2 hours after adding chemicals to the swimming pool
• If you have an auto-cover you must keep the auto-cover pump on the auto-cover at all times to prevent a DROWNING HAZARD, when the pool is not in use. The auto-cover pump removes water and relieves stress on the auto-cover material and tracks. If you fail to do so, the manufacturer’s warranty maybe voided
• If you have a mesh winter cover, leave it outside in the storage bag to dry for at least 2 days. Then store the mesh winter cover in a dry place. We recommend putting winter plugs inside the storage bag with the cover
