Your Gulf Coast gunite inground pool most likely gets lots of use every season. This is from the simple fun of floating on the water to workout routines, to pool parties. It’s a hub of entertainment, relaxation, and activity, and as such new gunite pool, the maintenance is important. This will help to keep it beautiful, safe and healthy for you and your family to enjoy.
Here are some new gunite pool maintenance tips to consider:
A gunite pool is a good choice for the warmer climate in Gulf Coast. Those scorching summer days are great for long periods of enjoyment in the pool. Ensure you maximize your investment by cleaning the pool thoroughly as well as carrying out new gunite pool maintenance.
Cleaning the walls and floor
While it’s important to clean debris regularly, the walls and floor will also accumulate buildup. With either an automatic cleaner or manual vacuum, scrub the pool’s interior every few weeks to keep the pool interior clean. If you don’t clean the walls and floor for too long makes this part of new gunite pool maintenance more difficult.
Regular removal of debris
If you already have an inground cleaning system or pool vacuum, bigger pieces of debris, like bugs, leaves, and other things that are blown into the pool, need regular removal. Not removing debris can affect the quality of pool water and result in algae growth.
Use the pool pump every day
Your pool pump should run every day; however, that does not mean it should be running continuously. While how much it has to run will depend on the levels of heat and frequency of use, at least 8 hours daily is enough for balancing the pool chemicals.
Do not disregard the rest of the pool area
The area surrounding the pool is another place, which is often ignored with regards to pool maintenance.
You should not make the mistake of disregarding frequent disinfecting, scrubbing and cleaning of the decking or tiles around your swimming pool.
This area can turn out to be a breeding ground, transferring germs and bacteria into the pool without you even noticing.
Ensure you include frequent cleaning in your new gunite pool maintenance schedule.
Pool water testing
Pool water needs a range of chemicals to keep the water clear, clean, and safe. You should test the pool water at least once per week to check the levels of chlorine, alkalinity, and pH. This test allows you to know what chemicals should be added.
Test testing chemicals

Scheduling of service appointments
