Why National Pool Opening Day?

Every year, more and more pool owners scramble to open their pool before Memorial Day weekend. National Pool Opening Day allows people to take their time and open their pool the right way. This helps avoid the rush and costly mistakes that can come with waiting. By participating in National Pool Opening Day, pool owners can properly prepare themselves for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and all those weeks of summer fun ahead.

Getting Off to a Great Start!

Opening the pool in the spring is always an exciting time. Taking care of it in April just gives you a jumpstart! Whenever you're ready, we've lined up the steps for opening your pool. To ensure you don't miss anything, take a minute to read over that blog post before getting started.

Another handy tool we've put together for you is our Leslie's Pool Care Checklist. This list is key to a healthy pool once you've opened it for the summer. You can print it out and check it often to keep track of essential routine pool care tasks. It'll help you keep the pool clean, clear, healthy, and swim-ready all the time! We also highly recommend one of Leslie's Pool Opening Kits to make your pool opening process go more smoothly. These kits contain every chemical you'll need to prepare your pool for the season ahead.

Where the Fun Begins

Every pool owner knows that opening your pool is only the beginning. After that all-important opening, it's time to trick out your pool with all the toys, floats, and accessories you need to have a great time.

Bright and colorful inflatable floats bring every pool to life, and can be used to splash through the water with children or relax while floating peacefully under the sun. Another way to take your pool time to the next level is with some poolside basketball hoops; you won't need years of training to dunk on these rims!

The fun doesn't stop when you get out of the pool, either. Keep snacks and drinks poolside accessible with a large cooler full of ice and treats. You can even set up one gallon jugs nearby to have water, punch, lemonade, or a few other beverages on tap!

We put together a collection of some of our favorites. Check it out!

SAFETY FIRST: You know what else is fun? Being safe. Be sure to read our blog post on Swimming Pool Safety Tips.
