Top Tips For Weekly Pool Maintenance 4th January 2016
Before you have unique swimming pools installed, you need to know just how much work is involved in the upkeep of a pool. You’ll need to set out weekly tasks to ensure that your pool stays in pristine condition so here are a few that you might want to include on the rota.
Cleaning the skimmer
Make sure you clean your skimmer at least once a week so that there is no debris left in it, as this will have an impact on how effectively it keeps your pool clean.
Make sure you run the pump each day to ensure that the pool water is properly filtered. You should also check that the pump strainer, filter and drains are clean.
Check the filter
Follow the manufacturer’s directions as to how to keep your specific filter. This is an important part of pool maintenance as the filter is what keeps any debris from entering the pool.
It’s advisable to shock your pool at least every two weeks. A shock treatment involves adding oxidising compounds to the pool water in order to destroy any chloramines or anything else you don’t want in the water.
Owning a pool is a lot of fun but don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s not a lot of work as well. You can of course do the maintenance yourself but it might be better to consider getting a professional pool-cleaning company to come and help you keep on top of it all, so you can enjoy your luxury pool without having to worry about anything else.
