With temperatures hitting the summer highs, it’s the perfect weather for swimming and backyard fun. In order to make the most of the season, here are a few friendly tips for how you can keep your poolside oasis prepped for the busy season:
- Check Your Levels
Ensuring that your pool’s water levels are at the appropriate mark is an easy task to forget. At least once or twice a month, it is important to make sure that your water is at its optimum level to keep your equipment working properly.
- Keep It Balanced
Pool chemistry requires frequent attention in order to stay balanced. Routine maintenance is a necessary component of all pool ownership if you want clear, swimmable waters. One key step in making the most of your backyard pool oasis is to maintain proper pH levels so you can enjoy a dip in your sparkling pool anytime!
- Keep It Clean
Along with maintaining your water chemistry, another critical step for your pool is to promptly remove dirt and debris when it makes its way into your waters whether through rain, wind, or use. This can lengthen the life of your pool equipment and help keep your waters in tip-top shape. Not to mention, it can also save you on headaches and expenses in regards to purchasing expensive chemicals.
Chlorine is the quintessential ingredient for most pools (unless a salt system is in place). Maintaining your waters and checking your chlorine dispenser weekly to monitor the amounts of chlorine level can help avoid escalating water issues
- High Temperatures
Temperatures can reach incredible heights during the summer. During the hottest months, be sure to check pool chemicals weekly. The higher temperatures can affect your pool chemical’s efficiency.
Summer only comes once a year and it’s the best season to spend in your beautiful pool. Although this list is just the tip of the iceberg, by staying on top of your pool maintenance routine, you can be sure to keep your pool waters sparkling and clean for your friends and family to enjoy!
