A swimming pool is a serious investment of both money and time. A smart owner knows that a regular maintenance routine will extend the life of your pool and keep you from having to call a Lebanon County Pool Renovation company too soon. It’s wise to have a regular pool service to help you with more difficult maintenance tasks and check your chemical balance, but there are four basic tasks that every owner should perform.
- Skim the surface. You should break out your long-handled net to skim the surface of your pool for leaves and other debris every 2-4 days. Surface litter will eventually sink and accumulate on the floor of your pool. Skimming will help prevent staining and keep your filters running longer.
- Vacuum the bottom of the pool. This helps pick up any debris that has fallen to the floor of your pool, where it can cloud the water and stain your pool. Plan to spend at least 30 minutes vacuuming once a week.
- Scrub the tile and walls. Over time, calcium and algae will build up on the walls of your pools, damaging the finish and creating unsightly blemishes that require special cleaning by a Lebanon County pool contractor. Thankfully, a little regular scrubbing can prevent these deposits. Use a stiff brush for traditional plaster, and a soft brush on vinyl, tile or fiberglass.
- Clean out your filters. Dirty filters are the most common cause of water cloudiness. Generally, both sand and cartridge filters should run an hour for every ten degrees out outdoor temperature (i.e. 7 hours if it’s 70 degrees.) You’ll want to clean your sand filters with a backwash every 1-4 weeks. Cartridges will need to be cleaned every 4-6 weeks.
These are a few of the maintenance steps required to keep your pool healthy and beautiful. Many owners rely on a Lebanon County Pool service company to do the work for them. However you decide to handle your pool’s maintenance, professional pool cleaning, adjusting, and eventual renovation are expenses you should plan for.
