The consequences of not opening your swimming pool soon enough

Surprisingly, some people have waited until now to finally open their swimming pools. This can drastically cut short your summer swimming season, but it can also have other undesirable effects on your pool and summer fun.

Green Algae

When a swimming pool is left to sit under its winter cover under a baking sun, green algae growth occurs. And once the pool is opened – instead of being able to swim nearly right away – you’re faced with the uphill battle of algae removal.


A stagnant swimming pool is a giant vat of standing water and ideal breeding ground, as far as mosquitos are concerned. The sooner you open your pool, the sooner you can prevent mosquitos from setting up home – making outdoor entertaining even more enjoyable.


Pollen is difficult to control and the prevalence of pollen in your area depends on where you live. But if a pool is not circulating, the pollen levels can build up in the water and make it that much harder to keep clear later.

We’ve recently experienced record-breaking heat throughout Toronto and the GTA with more predicted on the way. If you haven’t opened your pool yet, do so as soon as possible. Next year, consider opening your pool as soon as the ground is no longer frozen – and you’ll be prepared for those unexpected, humid mid-spring days.   If you’re concerned about the extra swimming pool maintenance that may need to be done when you open early, you can hire a professional pool services company to take care of it for you – it’s not as expensive as you’d think.
