There is plenty of misleading information out there when it comes to owning a pool and it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. As a professional pool service company, we’ve heard them all when it comes to common pool myths. Today, we’ll be looking at some of the most common misconceptions people have about swimming pools so you know exactly what owning a pool is all about!
Pools are only used in summer
It’s a very common misconception that you can only use your pool when the weather is really hot. While it’s true that the warmer months offer prime swimming conditions, there are some easy ways to extend your swimming season. Investing in a pool heater means you can enjoy your pool whenever you like and, for a cheaper option, pool covers also extend the swimming season.
Running a pool is expensive
It’s very true that pools were once very expensive to run. However, advances in technology has meant that pool equipment these days is highly energy efficient if you use quality products and this means that running a pool is now more affordable than ever. There are also extra steps you can take, such as using a pool cover, which will increase the energy efficiency of your pool.
Maintaining a pool is a lot of work
Once you get the hang of regular pool maintenance, it really takes no time at all and just becomes part of your routine. However, if the thought of maintaining your pool just doesn’t appeal to you, you can also use the services of a professional pool cleaning company to make things even easier.
Clear water means a healthy pool
Unfortunately, it takes more than a quick glance at the water to ensure that your pool is healthy. Although clear water is definitely a good start, you also need to test your water regularly to ensure that the pH is balances. During the summer months, you should aim to test your water every week and maintain your pH between 7.2 and 7.6.
