The ultimate goal of any pool maintenance plan is to never have a day when you have to tell your family they can’t get in the pool because there is a problem with the water balance, level, or equipment. Whether you have the time, expertise, and interest in taking care of your own pool maintenance or you hire a professional to save yourself that hassle, there are some things that should be done regularly so you never have to see unhappy faces looking at you.
- Pool Water Testing – You can accomplish pool water testing on your own, have a professional come by, or take a sample to your favorite swimming pool services and supply store. Once you know what is going on with the water, be sure to adjust the chemicals accordingly based on the volume of water and the results of the water testing.
- Clean Filters and Skim for Debris – Debris in the pool and clogging up the filters is going to adversely affect the water balance and could cause damage to the filters.
- Visual Inspection – Take the time to check how everything looks. Is the water cloudy? Is the water level down? Does the liner look okay? Any of these is a sign there may be an issue that needs to be resolved, and it is always better to take care of repairs before they become a larger, costlier problem. You should also add water if the level has dropped from evaporation or a lot of splashing.
