It’s hard to overstate the importance of a well-maintained pool. Not only does a regularly serviced pool look great. It is also a safe, healthy place for family and friends to spend time.
So what should you do on a weekly basis to maintain your pool?
Spend a few moments visually inspecting the pool water for visible contaminants, clarity, and color. You want to be able to see a coin sitting at the bottom of the pool.
Check the Chlorine Levels
Chlorine keeps the pool water clean and free of dangerous bacteria. Maintaining the correct chlorine levels during the entire time that the pool is open is critically important. Keep in mind that the pH level should always be between 7.4 and 7.8, depending on the pool’s finish.
Check the Water Level
A lot of pool use or a heavy rainstorm can affect the pool’s water level. A high water level can make the skimmer door malfunction. A low water level can make the pump burn out or run dry. Ensure that the water level is where it needs to be.
Outdoor pools collect all kinds of unsightly debris, including leaves, grass, and insects. Scoop debris off the pool surface using a net or leaf scoop. Your pool guests will thank you.
Scrub the Sides
Pool debris is unsightly, and so is a dirty water line. Scrub the sides of your pool with a brush to remove any dirt or algae build-up where the top of the water meets the tile to keep the tile sparkling.
There are few greater pleasures than having a pool. For a pool to stay looking great, though, it needs regular weekly maintenance. Hiring a professional, reliable pool maintenance company is an easy, time-saving way to keep your pool in tip-top shape. Contact us to find out more.
