With the warm weather we’ve had the past few weeks , we hope you were able to open your pools and relax and enjoy. Whether you’re new to pool ownership or a seasoned veteran, it’s important to maintain your pool correctly on a regular basis. There are 4 key factors to properly maintaining your pool.
- Balance– Test your water every 2 weeks to balance total alkalinity. Calcium hardness & pH Stabilizer level should be checked at the same time along with copper and iron content.
- Sanitizer & Shock– Check chlorine levels daily. Use No Chlor (non-chlorine shock that allows you to swim in 15 minutes) on a weekly basis OR a chlorine based shock (Cal-Shock or Multi-Shock) when combined chlorine reading reaches .2ppm or higher.
- Filtration & Clarity– Water clarity is not only aesthetically pleasing, it is essential for safety. Maintaining proper filtration removes contaminants. Back-wash only when necessary as unneeded back-washing wastes water and chemicals. Filter cleaner will promote maximum efficiency.
- Algae Prevention & Preventive Maintenance– Use Algaecide & Phosphate Remover. Support the sanitizer with special chemicals to prevent problems BEFORE they occur. A proper preventive maintenance routine will save you time and money. Also, experts may probably recommend that you rely on custom decking services offered by reliable service providers. This can improve the safety of your pool and facilitate the cleaning process.
