As the warmer months are approaching, the idea of relaxing in a comfortable swimming pool on a hot summer day sounds more and more appealing. However, that image can be ruined if you suddenly discover that you need pool repair before taking a swim. Sometimes, your pool will need repair because of its age or the weather conditions, but there are still repairs that can be avoided with the proper care and maintenance.
- Clean your pool filters: There’s a lot of water going back and forth in your swimming pool, and that water is accompanied with a host of chemicals, contaminants, and debris. Over time, your pool filters are going to catch more and more of these particles to keep them from spreading into your pool. If you don’t regularly clean your pool filters, your filters can get clogged and you run the risk of algae and bacteria growth.
- Check your pool cover: Your pool cover is great for preventing debris, leaves, children, and other things from falling into your pool. Because of the number of outdoor elements that your pool cover collects, your pool could suffer if the cover became damaged and collapsed. You can avoid this potential need for pool repair by making sure that your pool cover isn’t weighed down too heavily by things like snow or branches.
- Maintain pool chemicals: To keep your pool in top condition, you need to make sure your pool chemicals are balanced, especially when the pool is frequently used. If your pool isn’t cleaned with the proper chemicals, you could face illnesses and bacteria and other nasty things.
