Outdoor Lighting Tips

Hanging your Christmas lights is a lot of work and can be a frustrating endeavor. Below are a few tips to make sure that hanging your Christmas lights is a safe and easy task.

Plan your Attack: First, decide on the area of your home that you want to cover and figure out how many lights you’ll need. Then test out your lights to make sure they still work properly. If you need more lights to cover your home, we have a great selection of lights available at our store!

Keep your Extension Cords Safe: Before using extension cords, you should first make sure that the cords are suitable for the outdoors. Also, make sure that when they are set up, your lights and extension cords are kept out of high-traffic areas. They should also be kept off the ground to prevent being covered in snow or dipped in puddles of water.

Make Sure your Lights are Suitable for the Outdoors: There are a variety of lights that you can choose from. Like your extension cords, make sure that your lights are rated for outdoor use. Never use indoor lights for the outdoors, as these lights won’t be waterproof.

Don’t Hang your Roof Lights up Alone: If you are hanging lights on your roof or anywhere that requires the use of a ladder, make sure that you have someone there to hold the base of the ladder for you. You don’t want to risk falling off and hurting yourself!

Open Your Pool for Summer in 12 Easy Steps

The weather is getting warmer, the snow is melting, and the sun seems to shine brighter with each day. Pretty soon it will be time to open up the pool for summer! Whether you are “summer-izing” your pool for the first time or you’d like a reminder of all the necessary steps, we have you covered – no pun intended! Here’s how to successfully prepare your pool for summer:

1. Remove Debris & Drain Water from Pool Cover

The first step in preparing your pool for summer fun is removing all the water and debris from your winter pool cover. Use a submersible pool cover pump for easy water removal. Once your pool cover is completely dry, you can use a large broom or leaf blower to clear off leaves and other debris so they don’t fall into the pool during the next step.

2. Remove Pool Cover

Now that water and debris have been removed from your winter cover, grab a friend and carefully peel the cover back and off of your pool.

3. Clean & Store Away Pool Cover

Pool covers can be easily cleaned with soap, water, and a soft brush. Be careful not to use anything too abrasive, as this may tear the material. For protection against bugs, rodents, and mildew, wait until the pool cover is completely dry then store in a heavy-duty plastic bin.

4. Remove All Winterizing Plugs & Re-Attach Drain Plugs

Make sure all winter plugs are removed from your pool equipment, including the filter, pump, heater, pool cleaners, etc., and replace them with your normal drain plugs. Ensure all antifreeze has been discharged before removing winterizing plugs from your pool skimmers and return lines.

5. Reconnect Pool Equipment

Reconnect your pool filter, pump, heater, and anything else that was disconnected when closing the pool. Above-ground swimming pools will need to have flexible plumbing lines reconnected to the pool equipment and skimmer.

6. Refill Your Pool

Using a garden hose, refill your pool back to its normal level (about halfway up the skimmer).

7. Clean Your Pool

Use a leaf rake net, pool brush, and/or pool vacuum to remove any remaining debris in the water.

8. Set up Your Pump & Pool Filter

Make sure to properly replace drain plugs (and any other parts that have been removed) to your pool pump and filter. Check the pump’s O-ring for any cracks or damage and replace if such blemishes are present. If the O-ring is in good shape, apply an O-ring lubricant to maintain a tight seal and provide easy removal later on.

9. Start the System Back Up

Turn on your pool filter and pump; check and make sure the system is running properly with no leaks or drips. If the pump fails to pull any water, prime the pump by turning off the filter system, removing the lid, and filling the pump housing with water. Replace the pump and turn the system back on again.

10. Test & Adjust

It is crucial to test the quality of your pool water before swimming. Once your pump and filtration system has been up and running for several hours, you will want to test levels of pH (ideal: 7.4 – 7.6), alkalinity (ideal: 80 to 120 ppm), and chlorine (ideal: 2.0 to 4.0 ppm). Using a pool testing kit is an inexpensive and easy way to ensure the safety of your water. Once you’ve established your pool water chemistry, you may need to balance your water by adjusting pH, adding chlorine, or removing phosphate.

11. Filter Overnight

Run your filtration system overnight to get rid of any remaining dirt, bacteria, algae, and debris still present in your pool water. Use algaecide to help remove stubborn or excessive algae.

12. Shock & Awe

The final step to cleaning and preparing your pool for summer is to apply a shock treatment to the water. This will eliminate nearly all the remaining contaminants and bacteria, providing you with a fresh, clean start to the summer season. Once you are all set, you can kick back, relax, and enjoy your pool!
