Keeping your swimming pool in great condition doesn’t have to be the herculean task that it sometimes seems to be. Through intermittent, ongoing management, you can ensure that your prized pool stays in pristine condition all year round.
At Outback Pools, we have compiled a list of new tips and insider tricks to maintain the perfect swimming pool for veteran pool owners and novices alike.
Skim the Pool’s Surface Every Few Days
By simply skimming your pool’s surface every few days and collecting unwanted debris you can save yourself a lot of future hassle.
Floating debris such as leaves and branches will eventually sink to the bottom and become stuck to the bottom of the pool. To avoid the kind of build up simply skim the water with the widely available, long hand net aptly named a skimmer. This simple preventative measure is certain to save you time and money in the future. In addition, you should also be diligent in cleaning out the strainer baskets after skimming your pool. This will help support pool circulation and keep chlorine demands at bay.
Suck up Contaminants with a Tennis Ball
One neat trick we can recommend is throwing a tennis ball into your pool and keeping it there between uses. When substances such as sun block, drinks and other liquids get left behind in a pool, the surface can get rather foul after an extended period of time. A tennis ball can help against this by sucking up unwanted contaminants and freeing your pool of unnecessary mess.
Regularly Seek Out Professional Maintenance Services
While there are certain steps and procedures you can take in pool maintenance, sometimes you need a professional’s touch to keep everything brand new.
