Please Note:

  1. We require payment at the time of service. In order to schedule your opening, we require a credit card number on file. We will take your credit card number by phone when we confirm your opening. Do Not Send It On This Form. If you are present at the time of opening and you prefer, we will accept your check rather than charging your credit card.

  2. At opening, equipment will be reassembled, system started, and heater and cover operation tested. If your equipment is not working, there will be an additional charge for parts and the labor required.

  3. We do not add water balancing or sanitizing chemicals to your pool at opening. It is not appropriate to add balancing and sanitizing chemicals until your pool water has been circulating for a minimum of 24 hours. It takes this long for the chemicals dissolved in your pool water to become evenly dispersed for accurate measurement. We recommend that you bring a water sample into our store after 24-48 hours. One of our retail staff will test your water. Based on the test results, they will recommend the chemicals necessary to balance your water.

  4. If there are any other services you would like us to do for you at opening, please contact us as soon as possible so we can allow adequate time in our scheduling.

Thank you for trusting your pool to Aquatech. We wish you a fantastically fun summer!
