When it comes to a domestic pool, it’s easy to get a bit behind with your maintenance. After all, the only consequence is that your family can’t swim in it until you get it back up to standard – no big deal! However, it’s a different story with a commercial pool as you need to ensure that the water is safe and healthy throughout the year for the enjoyment of pool users. Unfortunately, a lot of commercial pool owners make some very common mistakes with their pool maintenance. Let’s take a look at what these mistakes are so you know to avoid them!
Mistake #1: Not having a maintenance plan in place
Unlike a domestic pool where you can make it up as you go along, you need to have a plan in place for your commercial pool maintenance to ensure that the pool is consistently up to standard. Think about the tasks that need to be undertaken to look after the pool and how frequently these tasks need to be carried out.
Mistake #2: Not servicing the pool equipment
Even if your commercial pool equipment seems to be running just fine, don’t fall into the trap of neglecting it until a problem occurs. Instead, aim to have your pool equipment serviced regularly. Not only does this mean it’s running efficiently for optimal pool health, it can also save you money as any issues can be picked up and fixed before they turn into major issues.
Mistake #3: Not being aware of the local guidelines
Commercial pools are under a higher level of scrutiny compared to domestic pool and this is for obvious reasons – you have a duty of care to pool users to offer a healthy environment. Not only do you have to comply with safety standard, you’ll also have local guidelines around the sanitation of your pool. Rather than getting caught out during an inspection, make sure you’re aware of the local guidelines that apply to your pool.
