3 easy DIY pool tips to keep your pool maintained, even in the fall and winter months.
1. Keep it clean. Scoop debris, leaves, bugs both floating and on the pool floor. This also includes emptying your skimmer baskets. This will help prevent your your pool equipment from getting blocked and keep the pool's circulation system working properly and efficiently. Pool cleaners/robots are great for keeping debris off the pool floor, as well.
2. Check your pool chemical balance. Keep the water crystal clear year round. Proper chemical balance keeps the water clear and healthy. This will also prolong the life of your pool walls. Use an at home test kit or bring us a water sample. As always, water tests are free.
3. Check and maintain your water levels. The proper water level must be maintained at all times if you are running your pool equipment year round. Damage to your pool equipment could occur, leading to costly repairs or replacement.
