4 easy steps to maintain your pool

Keeping your pool in perfect condition doesn’t have to be hard work. Here are a few tips to help reduce the stress of trying to bring a pool back to life.

  1. Skim the leaves and floating debris off the surface – this will reduce the strain on your filter box and make the next two steps easier.
  2. Scrub the walls and steps – this prevents algae build up, removes scum and dirt and will keep your surfaces from discolouring.
  3. Vacuum the pool – if you are really lucky you’ve got a robot cleaner that will take care of this step for you, if not, this will be the longest step as you remove the dirt and debris off the base of the pool.
  4. Test your pool water – to keep your water healthy for swimming make sure you test and maintain the water levels including the pH and chlorine levels. Your local pool shop can help guide you on how many chemicals, chlorine and salt to add to maintain the optimal levels.

Enjoy the swimming season and the memories that go with it!
