The upkeep creates a safe environment for swimming, and it extends the longevity of your pool and pool equipment. New pool equipment and a swim pool repair can become costly. Save money and time by following these easy tips:
The first component to pool Maintenance is keeping your pool healthy with regular pool cleaning. Your pool maintenance and cleaning schedule will depend on the frequency you use your pool. Many cleaning tasks will need to be done weekly. Those who don’t swim often may be able to follow a bi-weekly schedule. Pool maintenance involves adjusting the chemicals in the water and maintaining the sides, bottom, and filtration system. Vacuuming a pool is also required to remove buildup and debris from the bottom and sides of the structure.
Importance of Balancing Pool Chemicals
Pool chemicals help prevent bacteria and algae from building up in your swimming water. To keep the chlorine from following below 1 ppm and alkalinity dipping below 90 ppm, weekly shock treatments are often recommended. Shocking a pool removes irritants that cause cloudy water and strong odors. Extra shock treatments may be required in the event of heavy rains, high temperatures, extra swimmers in the pool, or other situations.
