A swimming pool is one of the stars of the summertime, giving family and friends an escape from the heat and a place to gather for fun. But a pool isn’t just an amenity to a home, but an investment. And like any big investment, it has to be maintained to ensure it works properly, looks beautiful, and isn’t a hassle but an enjoyment for you and your family.
Maintaining Your Pool
Keeping your pool clean and free of debris is not only important for appearance’s sake, but for the health of your pool equipment. Removing leaves, algae, and amphibians will help your filter and skimmer work at maximum efficiency. Hand skimming with a net at least once a week can help reduce the amount of debris that sinks to the bottom of the pool after some time, which is more difficult to clean and can reduce the frequency of using a vacuum.
Why Is A Balanced pH Level Important?
Testing the water of the pool for the pH level is one of the key ways to keep a beautiful, sparkling pool. Shock chemical treatments cleanse the water of contaminants such as algae, bacteria, dirt, and other organic matter. This debris isn’t only visually unappealing, but can also cause the water to smell after some time. Some algae are known to be stubborn or even impossible to remove from the pool liner or wall, but early detection and treatment can keep this from happening.
