Are you eager to plunge into your pool and unwind after an exhausting day? It can be sad to find your pool surface littered with leaves, twigs and other debris. This article shares a few tips for you to help to keep your pool clean and free from debris. Let’s get started.
Trim overhanging foliage
Leaves are a must in your backyard. A breezy morning might send leaves flying all over your backyard and in your pool. Tackle this problem by trimming the overhanging tree branches that contribute to leaf debris. It’s easy if you have the right tools. You may need a sturdy ladder and a chainsaw for the job.
Make sure you’re prepared to break the fall of the branches when you cut them so that they do not cause you injury or damage. It would be best to seek out the help of a professional. Either way, it’ll be worth the effort.
Set up a perimeter fence
Leaves leave behind tannins that cause stubborn stains and debris, and bring with them insects that you do not want in your pool. A fence around the boundary of your pool can help you tackle this problem. You could have a small walkway around the pool with a fence and gate to promote easy access. Installing a fence is expensive, but it keeps your pool clean and safe so it’s definitely worth a thought. Get estimates from companies that manufacture and install fences. This lets you compare the costs to make your choice after due consideration.
Use a durable pool cover
Another way to keep your pool free of debris is to cover its surface. You need to find a cover this is sturdy but fashioned out of light material that can be properly secured. Consider the options available to cover your pool carefully when in the market for outdoor pool covers.
