All pools are different and so are their maintenance needs. If you live in a home that has a brand new pool then you are likely not to have as many issues than if you live in an older home with an older pool. Many times you can get some easy maintenance tips for your pool, regardless if it is a new or old one, from a pool cleaning service.
One of the secrets to having a beautiful sparkling pool is that you have routine maintenance performed on it. One easy pool maintenance tip that any pool cleaning service will tell you is to check your pool’s chemistry at least twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter. Be sure not to let your pool’s PH level get above 8.0. If you are sure to keep your pool’s PH level in check you will be able to use the full potential of the chlorine that is already in the pool. If you have a salt water system in your pool, you should be sure to clean the cells in the salt water so that enough chlorine will be produced.
Another easy pool maintenance tip that any pool cleaning service will tell you is to keep the skimmer basket clean at all times. This may sound like an easy thing to do (and it is) but many people tend to forget to do this because they lead busy lives. If you do not keep the skimmer basket clean at all times and you let it get full of debris you will get little flow resulting in poor circulation.
It’s also a good idea to brush the tiles and walls of your pool on a regular basis. Brushing down the walls will help to keep any algae from forming, especially if your circulation system is part of the problem. Keeping your pool’s tile clean will help to save you money in the long run. If they become calcified it will require a specialist to clean it off.
If you are willing and able to keep up with all the maintenance needs of your pool you will not have as many problems with your pool in the long run and can enjoy your pool for months and years to come. Do not try to do some of the bigger pool maintenance jobs on your own because you will not know what you are doing and may end up doing damage to your pool, but there is nothing wrong with keeping up with some of the easy routine maintenance needs of your pool so that you and your family and friends can enjoy a nice clean pool.
