While saltwater pools have unique water chemistry parameters and use specialized equipment compared to traditional pools, the process for opening them is relatively the same, with a few key exceptions:
1. Remove any debris and standing water from the top of the cover (if a solid type).
2. Remove any debris from the pool, brush the pool and adjust the water level to about halfway up the skimmer face.
3. Remove all plugs and replace the return fittings.
4. Check the pump and filter to make sure they are working properly and turn on the equipment.
5. For saltwater pools, put the electrolytic chlorine generator (ECG) back in place, but do not turn it on until the last step.
6. Run the pump for at least 24 hours to circulate the water thoroughly.
