Take the Guesswork Out of Pool Maintenance with These Tips

There are many benefits of owning a pool in Florida: year-round enjoyment, a refreshing and relaxing dip whenever you choose, built-in social activity, and more.

A well-maintained pool helps create years of happy memories. But when pools get damaged or fall into disrepair, they can be a threat to the security of the property, and the health of friends and loved ones.

It’s important to prevent unpleasant scenarios by practicing proper and consistent pool maintenance. Here’s how to keep your pool sparkling clean year-round:

Take a Total Picture Approach

From the cover, filters, pumps, and other tools and accessories, there’s a lot to take into consideration when cleaning and maintaining a pool. Along with debris removal, you’ll need to ensure chemicals are at proper levels and proportions.

Don’t forget the area surrounding the pool. Cleaning up and organizing pool toys, deck furniture, and supplies helps create an overall look and feel of order and aesthetic design.

If you’re unable or unwilling to perform cleaning and maintenance, you can reap all the benefits by hiring experts to clean, service, and repair your pool. We provide weekly service (including chemical balance) to ensure your pool is always in the best possible working order.

Always Be Cleaning

Swimming and wading in the pool should be a fun and relaxing activity, but that doesn’t mean you can’t couple the enjoyment with a small amount of elbow grease.

Include pool cleaning into your routine by removing dirt and debris (and scrubbing off algae) every day. Alternatively, invest in a robotic vacuum that will clean the bottom of the pool for you. While this option won’t entirely replace essential cleaning, it can help keep some dirt and debris from staying in the pool when not in use.

It’s also a good idea to regularly check the filters. Just as kidneys remove impurities from your body, pool filters keep dirt, leaves, bugs, and foreign objects out of your pool. When the filter is clogged, however, this material is not as easily collected.

There’s an App for That

Chemical balance is essential to any properly-maintained pool. Still, it’s not always easy to get the balance just right. Luckily, in the age of smart devices, you can easily monitor chemicals and other sanitary aspects on your phone, tablet, or other device.

There are many apps (available for both iPhone and Android) designed to help you track chemical levels, regulate water temperature, log statistics, and more. These apps also provide long-term data, so you can monitor the cleaning and maintenance of your pool through the years.

Enlist the Experts

When you hire qualified professionals to install, service, and maintain your pool, you save time, money, and personal labor. In addition, by not having to store chemicals, you can keep pets and family members safely away.
