Having a backyard pool at your home can add a sense of luxury. In the heat of summer, pools offer a spot for relaxation, and relief from the elements.
It can be costly to maintain a pool every week. Fortunately, the pool maintenance specialists at Premier Pools & Spas have important tips for pool owners who are trying to reduce their pool costs without sacrificing summertime fun.
How to reduce the cost of pool covers
Investing in a pool cover can save you money long-term. Pool covers are an important part of keeping swimming pools clean and reducing service costs.
Pool covers help reduce the number of foreign objects that fall into the pool. By reducing debris and dirt, you will vacuum less and purchase fewer pool cleaners. Pool covers not only minimize the time you may spend on pool maintenance but also directly reduce operations costs.
Clean your pool hardware regularly
Cleaning your pool equipment is as important as maintaining the pool itself. Cleaning up the pump regularly will prevent the possibility of it becoming clogged. Likewise, don’t leave equipment floating in the pool, or in harsh or direct sunlight. Ensure you clean the equipment after every use to prevent contamination.
A well-maintained pool will be the focal point of your outdoor space. It will also appeal to friends and family while providing a spot for social interaction, relaxation, and fun. Owning a pool is an extra responsibility, but not particularly difficult. By simply following the right steps, you can decrease the time and cost, and avoid repairs.
Increase pool safety
Reduce the likelihood of injury by applying these small safety changes that better protect your loved ones, pets, and guests.
Fencing — Most counties require fencing around your pool. Fence installation around your pool can help prevent young kids and pets from using the pool without supervision. For ultimate protection, install a fence that has a height of 4 to 5 feet.
Pool supervision — Designate someone to keep an eye on pool guests and swimmers during all pool activities. If your kids and their friends are in or near your pool, you should be aware of their activities.
Pool alarms — These can alert pool owners of activity around the pool. The installation of alarms in your pool and the gates around your pool will help prevent mishaps. You can install alarms to send notifications to your computer, tablet, and phone if an object hits the pool water or a gate opens.
