Is it easy to “Open” my pool?

We wouldn’t say “easy” but it is not impossible. The pool opening is more of re-assembling the equipment (one needs know how and possess the proper tools), cleaning the cover (can be time consuming and dirty), testing the equipment (more “know-how”), repairing anything that could have been damaged over the winter, and cleaning up the fall debris (debris in the water, cleaning filters, etc.). Many clients perform this service themselves if they have time. Many hire the pros.
