Step 12: Start Up



At this point, your swimming pool is almost ready for you to dive in. Our start-up technician will test that everything is working properly. For example, the technician will start the circulating pump and set the timer. If your pool design has eyeball fittings in the returns and jets, he will install them. He will also brush and vacuum the pool and clean any residue off the tile. The technician will simmer and balance the water and start the slow chlorine start up. In a slow chlorine start up, we add chlorine slowly over a period of a few days. So, it will take a few more days for the water to turn completely blue.
