A Swimming Pool Maintenance Guide for Beginners, Norwalk, Connecticut

Installing a new swimming pool in your backyard is always an exciting undertaking that guarantees plenty of fun splashing in the sun. That being said, having a pool requires some work to keep your investment in good condition and free of costly repairs. If you’re unfamiliar with how to maintain the water and equipment, here’s a helpful guide.

Understanding How to Maintain Your Swimming Pool

What’s the Best Cleaning Tactic After Pool Installation?

Swimming PoolBefore beginning your cleaning routine, contact a swimming pool professional who can walk you through the key components of your system — from the pool liner and pump to the filter and skimmer. Once you figure out the circulation and filtration process, you’ll better understand how to catch issues early. 

It’s crucial to note that your pool pump constantly cleans the water. To help this system along and avoid clogs, invest in a vacuum, and make a habit of skimming leaves and debris from the top of the water every week. You should also test your water weekly to ensure the chlorine and pH levels are healthy. 

How Often Should You Schedule Professional Service?

Once the installation is complete, your pool should be serviced by a team of professionals at the beginning and end of every season. A trained expert will check each piece of equipment to ensure it’s functioning properly. They can also recalibrate chemical levels as needed and prepare your water each winter.
