As you start your spring cleaning, make sure to take good care of your pool!
Spring is in the air. With warmer temperatures come the perfect pool weather. Make sure your pool is in the perfect shape for spring with these spring cleaning tips.
Properly Open Your Pool for Swimming Season.
Winter’s over and it’s time to start swimming again. Before you remove your pool cover to open your pool, be sure to remove any debris sitting atop the pool cover to prevent it from falling into your pool. It generally takes a week or so to ensure that your pool is ready for swimming. Make sure to run your pool’s pump for a good 24 hours, or until your pool’s water is balanced.
It’s the easiest way to keep your pool clean. Sure, it may be a little time intensive, but it helps to keep debris at bay so that your pools chemistry stays balanced and clean.
Make Sure to Brush.
Just like you brush your teeth to keep plaque away, be sure to brush to keep algae away. Keeping the walls and floors of your pool clean, help to reduce the risk of algae growth and calcium deposits. Be sure to clean it weekly and use a brush appropriate for your type of pool lining.
Show Your Filter Some Love.
Be sure to clean your filter regularly, but don’t keep it too clean. Be sure to check that the filter has a little dirt, as it can help to catch particles in the water.
Keep Your Water Levels in Check.
From evaporation to splashing, water loss is a normal part of pool ownership, but it’s important to keep your water levels balanced. Too little water and you may damage your pool’s pump.
Keep a Healthy pH Balance.
Your water’s pH is vital to keeping it clean and sanitary. Be sure to test your pool’s pH regularly to ensure that it’s in good shape.
