How to Take Care of Your Pool

When you built the pool of your dream to the backyard, it offers entertainment, leisure, exercise opportunities, and an increase in value to your home. Real State studies show that a pool can increase the value of your property as much as 20%. For this reason, is extremely important that you take a good care of your pool during pool season and off-season.

Things you need to do during pool season:

Check your pool’s pH and chlorine levels

You should check them at least twice per week. Your pool water pH should be between 7.4 – 7.6, while chlorine levels should stay between 1.0 – 3.0 ppm. Is better if you check your pH levels and chlorine levels at dusk, at least 4 hours after all swimmers have left the water.

Clean the Pool

Clean your pool at least once per week. If there is debris on the bottom of your pool, you can use a vacuum cleaner. Clean the surface with a cleaning net.

Keep your Filtration System Running

As much as possible. When the water is continuously moving, it is less likely to become tainted with dust, dirt, environmental pollutants, bacteria and body oils.

Shock Your Pool Water

Shocking the pool on a regular basis is an important element in keeping the pool clear and clean. Swimmers and the environment add waste to the pool that must be eliminated on a regular basis in order to prevent problems such as algae and cloudy water.

Things you need to do during off-season:

Inspect Your Pool

Look for cracks, leaks or any type of damage that needs to be addressed. Winter will only make the damage worse. Try to fix these problems before you close the pool.

Check your pool’s pH and chlorine levels

You should check them at least twice per week. Your pool water pH should be between 7.4 – 7.6, while chlorine levels should stay between 1.0 – 3.0 ppm. Is better if you check your pH levels and chlorine levels at dusk, at least 4 hours after all swimmers have left the water.

Remove All Objects from The Pool

Remove pool toys, diving boards, ladders, slides, etc.

Drain Water

Drain all water from the pool’s pump, filter, heater and all associated tubing.

Cover your pool with a pool safety cover.

The cover should secure tightly around the pool with no obvious tears, rips, gaps or damage. Inspect the pool cover every few weeks during the off-season.

These are only a few thinks you need to do to keep your pool clean all year. Is very important that you take care of your pool to avoid expensive repairs in the future.
