While we often think of Valentine’s Day as a day to spread love to family and friends, it can also be a great time to show your pool some love, too. At Champions Pool Repair & Service, we know that you want to keep your pool is the best shape possible, so we’ve laid out some easy ways to show your pool some love this Valentine’s Day and keep it running at its best:
- Check the Pool Chemistry
Checking your pool chemistry is important, especially during winter. You should check the chemistry of your pool often, as an acidic pH balance can lead to corrosion on various fixtures in your pool. Additionally, water that is too acidic can irritate the skin of anyone swimming in the pool. Aim for a pH level between 7.2 and 7.8. If you notice your pH balance is off, contact Champions Pool Repair & Service to help balance the water.
- Clean the Filter
It’s important to clean the pool filter to remove any dirt or debris the filter has collected. A dirty filter can lead to an accumulation of algae, grime, and other substances in your pool. Regularly cleaning the filter is an easy way to ensure that your pool water remains clean. Create a schedule to clean your filter every 4-6 months.
- Clean Pool Tile
As the tiles of your pool can get dirty over time, it is important to clean them on a weekly basis. Without regular cleaning, your pool tiles can quickly build up mildew that leaves a “ring” around the pool. Grab a soft-bristle brush and some baking soda to scrub away any grime that has built up on your pool’s tiles.
- Check the Water Levels
Check to make sure your pool’s water level is at the center level of your pool tile or pool skimmer. If the water level is too low, the pump can become dry and burn out, and if it is too high, the door to your skimmer will not work properly,
