Everything You Need to Know About Pool Care
Pools are a great feature to have at home. They keep you cool in the summer, provide an easy form of exercise and are simply fun. But having a pool is hard work, so you need to know how to care for one. You may buy a home with a pool or have one installed once you move in, so preparation is essential. Following are the basics you need to know about pool care.
Do you want a chlorine pool or a saltwater pool? In either case, you need to educate yourself on the chemicals involved and how to maintain the right balance to keep your pool clean and healthy. Talk to a pool maintenance professional to discuss the many options.
Some installed aboveground pools don’t have massive filtration systems, so you need to empty and clean them regularly. Other pools, both aboveground and inground, will have more complex filtration systems that require regular maintenance.
You need to clean your pool frequently. This includes skimming the pool when bugs, leaves or other unwanted materials end up in the pool. Some of these things are too big for a filtration system to handle, so the pool should be cleaned regularly. For some pools, consider investing in a cover.
Pools sometimes require additional repair. It’s always good to have a relationship with a pool expert who can take a look at problems and provide solutions. Repairs can be costly if the damage is left for too long, so get your pool inspected at least once a year.
