In ensuring a clean and clear swimming pool, our efforts are concentrated in two major areas:
First, maintaining or adjusting the chemical balance of the pool water, and the second is removing the unwanted dirts and foreign particles from the swimming pool. In order to prevent the entrance of these debris inside the pool water, it is a must that a pool owner should use an above ground winter cover as their number one protection.
The chemical balance of the swimming pool water cannot be maintained by adding pool chemicals as often as needed. We need to regularly test the pool water and adjust the levels as per the water test result. It is also part of the pool maintenance to use the proper brand of chemicals such as the aqua rite because it was already proven and tested by a lot of users.
In order to remove unwanted substances from the swimming pool, we rely on a water circulation and filtration system. Regular brushing and vacuuming of our swimming pools ensures a minimum of foreign material in the pool water. Of course, it is also necessary that we have to clean the filter itself and replace the filtration medium when necessary.
In order to determine how much chemical you might need to balance the pool water chemistry, it is still advisable to use the swimming pool calculators to take out the guess work.
Keeping your pool sparkling clean doesn't have to be as weighty as you might think. All pools are different, and so, proper maintenance is what they need. Proper maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to retain the beauty and operation of your pool. Regular maintenance, on the other hand, protects your financial investment, as well as you, your family, and everyone who enjoys your pool. It's all bout your money, and most importantly, it's about your safety, health, and enjoyment.
During mild climates when the off-season comes, your pool professional should maintain pool operations at normal levels. This includes maintaining water levels, sanitizing regularly, and retaining proper PH, total alkalinity, and calcium hardness levels. Twice a month, cleaning is recommended for optimum care.
Schedules for adding sanitizer and oxidizer to uncovered pools can be decreased according to the temperature drop. Thus, this should also be strictly maintained to preserve your pool regardless of what season it may be.
