It’s open season. Slather on some sweat-proof sunscreen and prepare to apply a little elbow grease to get your pool ready for the sunny days ahead. Follow allow for the step-by-step on opening your pool for the season.

Clear the Way

Whether it’s on your pool cover or in your pool – removing as much debris as possible before you restart your system will prevent clogging or overworking your equipment.


You did winterize, right? Be sure to remove all winter plugs and reinstall all pool and pump equipment before turning your pump back on.

Look Closely

Inspect for damage to any pool equipment, accessories, or inflatables (If you’re too out of breath to think about inflating anything at this point – we get it! Our Laze Pillow lets you start lounging with your favorite cocktail directly out of the box.) Making sure any poolside umbrellas are in good working order also gives you a shady place to take a breather.

Knock the Dirt Off

Brushing tiles and pool walls, vacuuming your pool floor, and cleaning your in-pool furniture helps restore the sparkle to your pool. All Ledge Lounger resin furniture is safe to be pressure washed.

Balancing Act

Test your chemical levels to determine the appropriate treatment for your water volume.

Spread the Love

If you have any other outdoor furniture or accessories, remember they could use a spring cleaning too. Oiling any bamboo furniture and cleaning any cushions will keep them looking great for years to come. All Ledge Lounger fabrics are bleach safe.


Now that you’ve got everything ready and opened your pool for the season, you can finally relax. Grab a drink and lounge as you admire all of your hard work and enjoy your ultimate outdoor oasis.
