Steps to Open your Swimming Pool

Step 1

Once your Pool Frog Leap Infuzer is connected to your filter system, take the blue cap off of your Torpedo Pac and insert it into the Infuzer. The torpedo pac is inserted upside down where the opening is on the bottom. Hand tighten the lid of the Infuzer once the torpedo pac is installed.

Step 2

Turn on your filter system. Please refer to your filter’s instructions manual for proper installation instructions. You can also visit our Blog Section on filters for some further assistance.

Your filter should always be on when adding/balancing chemicals in your pool.

Step 3

Using test strips, test the swimming pool’s water total Alkalinity Levels (adjust if necessary). If the alkalinity level is low, based on the test strip, add Alkalinity increaser (plus). If the alkalinity is high, based on the test strip, add Alkalinity decreaser (minus). Please refer to the bottle’s instructions for the proper amount to add for the adjustments.

Step 4

Using test strips, test the swimming pool’s water PH Level (adjust if necessary). If the pH level is low, based on the test strip, add pH increaser (plus). If the pH is high, based on the test strip, add pH decreaser (minus). Please refer to the bottle’s instructions for the proper amount to add for the adjustments.

Step 5

Add a chlorine stabilizer at a rate of 1 LB per 5,000 gallons of pool water.

Step 6

The Pool Frog Leap Infuzer has a dial from 1-10 that controls the amount of chlorine that flows into the pool. Turn the dial on the Frog Infuzer to the #5 setting. For the first week test the pool water daily for free chlorine with FROG Brand Test Strips to ensure correct dial setting. Continue to test weekly throughout the season.

After each testing, adjust the dial up by ½ increment if the free chlorine reading has dropped below 0.5 ppm or adjust down by ½ increment if the reading has risen above 1.0 ppm. Continue this process each day until the free chlorine reading stabilizes to at least 0.5 ppm.

Remember to adjust dial by ½ increment only in order to prevent over chlorination.

Following the instructions above on how to open your above ground pool should get your swimming pool ready for the season to come. Should you have any questions during this process please use the comments section below and our pool experts will get back to you as soon as possible.
