If you are lucky enough to own a pool, then you probably know how important it is to keep your pool clean. There are some important pool maintenance tips from Flower Mound Pool Service that every pool owner should follow. By following these easy steps and making an effort at keeping your pool clean, you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come. Plus, you’ll hopefully be able to avoid emergency calls to your pool repair company and will get as much life as possible out of your important and expensive pieces of pool equipment.
The first step in keeping your pool clean is to check the chemistry of the water 2-3 times per week during the summer months. If you live in a warmer climate and leave your pool open during the winter, then you probably only need to check the water about once a week.
Once the chemicals have been balanced, remove any hair or debris from the skimmer basket to prevent it from building up. It’s also a good idea to turn off the pump and clean the lint catcher once in while to prevent hair and other materials from gunking up the pump mechanism. In addition to keeping the pump clean, you also want to take the time to clean the pool filters as well. This is especially important to do after a big storm or every 1-2 months if debris and other materials have found their way into the water from the surrounding trees and bushes.
Keep your pool free from debris and leaf matter by always keeping the water clean. Many pool owners opt for automatic pool cleaners or pool vacuums to get the job done, as these make the job incredibly easy to complete. Make sure that all debris is removed completely and repeat the procedure as needed to keep the walls and floor clean. This makes it easy to get a clean start every time you use your pool, and will help to protect the health of your pool and pool water all year long.
