Christmas is a great time to enjoy your backyard pool. Whether you’re taking a dip in the cool water or lounging in the sun, it’s important to maintain your pool so that it is clean and clear for the season and ready for all those guests who’ll be dropping by. Thankfully, keeping your pool in top shape doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Here’s our guide to pool maintenance made easy this Christmas.
Clean Out Debris
Keeping debris out of your swimming pool is crucial for maintaining cleanliness and preventing damage over time. Be sure to remove any leaves, twigs, insects, or other debris from the surface of the water regularly using a skimmer net or pool vacuum cleaner. Additionally, inspect all drains and filters for any blockages which could cause problems if left untreated.
Regularly Maintain Equipment
Your swimming pool contains several pieces of equipment that need regular maintenance in order to function properly throughout the year including filters, pumps, heaters and more!
Inspect all parts regularly for any wear and tear that may occur over time and replace them as necessary so that everything runs smoothly when you need it most!
Additionally, make sure that you are using only high-quality filters designed specifically for use with swimming pools – generic filters are not always suitable or effective at removing dirt and debris from pools properly.
Check Your Pool Chemistry Regularly
Maintaining correct chemical levels is essential for keeping your pool safe and clean. Test your pool chemistry weekly and adjust accordingly with chlorine tablets or chemicals as needed. Be sure to also check the pH level of the water, which should be balanced between 7.2–7.8 on the pH scale. If you’re not sure how to do this, consider hiring a professional pool maintenance service to help keep levels balanced throughout the season.
Consider Pool Renovation
Modern pool designs are becoming even easier to maintain, so, for next Christmas, perhaps a pool renovation could be in order!
Getting your pool renovated to modern standards is an exciting process. A well-planned and designed pool can add value to your home as well as offer a great area for relaxation and leisure.
The latest trends in technology and design can help you create a luxurious outdoor space that matches your individual style –spas, stairs and spacious swimming areas, water features and high-tech filtration systems– it’s all possible with a renovation of your pool.
