Nothing is worse than returning home after a long day of work, ready to take a refreshing dip in your pool, only to find it full of algae, dirt, and discolored water. This frustrating situation is all too common for many pool owners who may not know the proper way to tend to their pool. The pool plastering and pool pebbling experts at Gutierrez Pool Plastering are experienced in caring for both above and below ground pools, and have helped homeowners for decades to care for their swimming pool.
Here are some common mistakes to avoid if you want to properly care for your pool:
- Not Monitoring: Monitoring the chemical balance of your pool is one of the most important things any pool owner can do. Checking it more often than not will insure that your pool's chlorine and pH levels stay balanced. This is particularly important if your pool is used frequently.
- Failing to Keep Equipment Clean: Your pool’s skimmer, pump, lint pot, and filter must be cleaned and replaced frequently to keep the flow of water through your pool’s system operating properly. Be sure to clean your pool’s siding and floor as well to avoid algae build up.
- Staying Consistent: A strict pool schedule is the best way to ensure that your pool is staying properly balanced and clean. Applying the proper chemicals at consistent times during the day ensures that your pool will be on a regular cycle. This also allows you to notice any changes in your pool’s water before it becomes a serious problem.
