The UK is experiencing a summer of record temperatures, so it is the best time to be cooling off in your swimming pool. In this blog we will give some advice on how to maintain your pool throughout the summer to avoid any issues spoiling your fun.
Regularly Check the Water
Make sure to regularly inspect the pool water for any dirt or contaminants. Your pool is getting the most use in summer so there is a higher chance of the water being affected. See if the water is becoming dirty or cloudy, or if the colour has changed. The faster you detect a problem with the water, the easier it is to resolve.
Check Your Chlorine Levels
Be sure to check chlorine and pH levels at least once a week. If the pool is getting regular use then it is better to check a few times a week for peace of mind. Also check your filtration pump and basket for debris that needs removing.
If you have hosted a big event with friends or family then your chlorine levels have probably been reduced. So after any event with the pool getting more use than normal, make sure to give the chlorine and pH a check. Otherwise you might see the pool water begin to change colour.
Going On Holiday
If you are going on a holiday you may be worried about your pool whilst you are away. The best advice is to have someone check the pool once a week. This could be a friend or a neighbour with pool maintenance knowledge, or even a pool maintenance company.
Some basic jobs to carry out would be to clean the skimmer baskets, backwash the filter, and test the water. Furthermore, to make life easier for the person checking, be sure that the pool chemistry is perfect before you leave.
