Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips & Secrets | Pool Installers Tampa | Clearwater

Keeping your pool healthy and clean can sometimes be a difficult job if you’re planning to do it yourself. Sometimes we let it turn out to be more work than actually needed. This is the main reason why most people hire a company to do the job. But hiring a company to for simple swimming pool maintenance can be expensive, when maintaining your pool yourself really isn’t that difficult.

If you follow the simple steps provided in this quick article it will help you actually spend more time IN the pool than out of it AND save you money!

5 Tips to Keep your Pool Healthy

  • Don’t use a pool testing kit on rainy and/or windy days – On rainy and windy days pool testing kits will sometimes give you a bad reading. Wait until a day after it stops raining to test the pool.
  • Check your pH levels twice a week – pH should be balanced anywhere from 7.2 – 7.6
  • Add anti-algae agents once a week
  • Shock your pool once a week – Add about one bag of shock per 10,000 gallons of water
  • Clean your filter – generally you should check your filter once a month, just to be safe, but you shouldn’t have to clean it that often…once every 6 months should be plenty.

If you follow these simple steps you will save time, money and aggravation. If you have any questions regarding your pool please feel free to contact us!
