It will be very convenient to have a pool in your own backyard for hot summers. But these pools have to be maintained well enough to ensure the pool stay clean and refreshing. You can save a lot of money on future repairing costs if you just have regular cleanings.
You have to check the pool chemistry about twice a week to make sure that pH doesn’t increase above the standard level. If you control the pH level well, you don’t have to add a lot of chlorine to the pool. You can even have pool cleaning services if you’re on a tight schedule. The skimmer baskets have to be cleaned as well. The skimmer, which is installed at the side of a pool help keep the pool clean of debris by skimming the surface of the pool.
There is a hair and lint pot on the front of the pool and this should be cleaned every couple of weeks. You should turn the pump off when you do this. Installing a debris removal system on your pool will prove beneficial for its maintenance. Pool inspectors will check your pool to see if it maintains optimum levels for safety.
You can check the level of the water when you’re near the pool to see if it’s too high or too low. For ideal conditions, the water has to be exact at the centre flat of your pool skimmer or Lake Tile. If the level is too low, the skimmer door will not be able to work properly. If the level is too stumpy, it can track the impel dry and it will be in danger of burning up. Some people have installed inline chlorinators and these have to be checked routinely for proper levels of chlorine tablets, possible clogging and loading. Ozonators make sure that the pool has enough chlorine. You have to make sure its light is switched on and it’s working.
If the pool you have is a salt system or salt pool, you have to make sure that the cell is kept clean. If you’re tasting salt in your pool, it means you’ve over salted it. Salt systems push the pH levels up in an artificial manner. These systems can be quite expensive to maintain.
The filter has to be cleaned regularly. Cartridge filters are known to waste as little as water as possible and they provide maximum flow rates. Dirty filters can be soaked in a solution of TSP or 10% solution of muriatic acid. You should always add acid to water and not the other way round. Make sure to wear gloves and eye protection when you’re engaged in this.
