Due to the increased usage, it’s important that you take steps to keep your pool well maintained for optimal enjoyment. As professional pool cleaners Perth, Pool Assist know what it takes to keep your pool looking perfect and are here to share our tops summer maintenance tips.
Check your water
Getting the chemical balance and PH levels right in your pool is essential over the summer months, particularly because your pool is under extra pressure from increased use. You need to make sure that pool users can swim safely by adding enough chemicals to kill any nasties but not adding so much that users walk away with irritated eyes and skin. During high use periods, you should try to aim for weekly testing of your water.
Clean your filter
Your filter works overtime during summer due to having to filter out all the additional dirt and debris that comes of frequent use. The frequency of cleaning will depend on the level of use and the type of filter you have and but you should keep an eye on your filter to make sure it’s running optimally and not getting too clogged. In terms of maintenance, that generally means backwashing regularly if you have a sand filter and hosting down your cartridge filter to get rid of debris.
Keep it clean
Over winter, a lot of people don’t worry too much about debris building up a little in the pool but over summer it’s a different story. Keeping your pool clean not only keeps the water looking great but also helps maintain the water PH and stops the filter getting too clogged. Get out the scoop on a regular basis to collect surface debris and make sure you run your pool cleaner regularly.
