Leslie's Pool Opening Services

As a pool owner, spring is the most exciting time of the year. Longer days and warmer temperatures mark the early beginnings of summer! It's a season full of backyard activities and fun days spent in the swimming pool. But before you can start swimming, it’s important to ensure the pool is properly cleaned, balanced, and sanitized. There’s a lot of work involved with opening a pool, but Leslie’s makes it easier for you with our Pool Opening Services.

You might be wanting to learn how to open a pool yourself. On the other hand, maybe you're just needing a professional to open your pool for you. Either way, you’ll get the help you’re looking for with Leslie’s Pool Opening Services. We offer two levels of services to cater to you and your pool’s unique needs: Basic Pool Opening or Complete Pool Opening. Which level of service do you need?

Finish Opening the Pool

Although chemicals are not included with Leslie’s Pool Opening Services, we can still take the guesswork out of getting your pool properly balanced and sanitized once the equipment is up and running. After our trained service technician opens your pool, bring a water sample to your local Leslie’s store for a complete AccuBlue water test analysis. This free test looks at 10 different aspects of water chemistry, and provides you with a customized water treatment plan to get your pool water properly balanced again.

While you’re in the store, pick up a Pool Opening Kit to get a jump start on water care. All kits come with Spring Stain Away, Opening Algaecide, Ultra Bright Advanced water clarifier, Chlor Brite pool shock, a Sun Sorb™ oil-absorbing sponge, and a 10-pack of test strips. Once our service technicians get your pool equipment up and running again, it's the perfect way to finish opening your pool and get the water clean, clear, and ready for swimming.

If you’re ready to open your pool, get in touch with us to schedule an appointment. You can schedule your Pool Opening Service appointment at your local Leslie’s, or fill out the convenient online form on our Pool Opening Services page. All of our service technicians are highly trained, licensed, bonded, and certified Leslie’s employees — not third-party contractors.
