Pool Openings from $189 to $269


Pool Opening Week * 

The base opening price is $189.00, and the price increases the closer the opening is scheduled to Memorial Day. We will schedule the pool opening sometime during the week that you select from the drop-down menu, below. (You do NOT have to be home.) If that week is booked, we will notify you by telephone or email. If you wish, you can also leave us a note in the “Additional information” box at the checkout page, offering an alternate week. PLEASE NOTE THAT OPENING DATES ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY.

Spillover Spa * 

A spillover spa is a separate body of water that requires additional labor to open.

Grotto Within Waterfall * 

There is no charge to open a waterfall; however, a grotto within a waterfall requires additional labor to open the jets during the opening.

Second pump * 

Opening the main pool pump is included in our opening price. There is an additional charge to open a second pump (that may be used for a spa, deck jets, slide, etc.).

Opening Chemicals * 

Opening chemicals consist of four (4) lbs. of shock and one (1) gal. of algaecide. These are INDEPENDANT of any balancing chemicals that your pool may need.

Salt Cell Cleaning * 

It is recommended that the salt cell be cleaned annually upon opening.

Heater Cleaning * 

This is recommended every two (2) years for electric heat pumps and annually for gas heaters.

DE/Cartridge Filter Cleaning * 

DE or Cartridge filters should be cleaned at least once during the season. We offer the service at Opening. (NOTE: Sand filters do not fall under this service. If you have a sand filter, a general rule of thumb is to replace the sand at approximately the seven-year mark. And even then, it depends on the clarity of the water. Please call Excel Pool Service and speak with a specialist regarding a sand change or the treatment of the sand with a cleaner/degreaser, if needed.)

Cover Removal by Home Owner Discount * 

If the homeowner removes their own pool cover, they are also responsible to fold it and store it. Excel technicians do not clean or “hose off” any covers.


These are OPTIONAL and contain all of the chemicals needed in a typical season, based on your sanitation system. NOTE: These are INDEPENDANT of any balancing chemicals that your pool may need. SEE BELOW FOR CHEMICAL PACKAGE DETAILS.



PLEASE NOTE: Pool cleanings and vacuumings are NOT part of the Pool Opening Service and are not services that we offer at this time. It is up to the homeowner to clean the pool after opening.
