Getting Your Pool Ready – It’s Time
You may have been waiting to open your pool until you were sure it was warm enough. Now is a great time to get your pool ready for your family and friends to take a dip. Here are some tips that will help you do a great job.
Give Your Pool a Deep Cleaning
Algae will start to grow on your pool’s interior and needs to be scrubbed with a stiff-bristle brush to get it off of the surface. You may need to use a rag with chlorine to remove all build up that has collected. You do not want to forget cleaning the skimmer basket either. You should at least clean the skimmer basket on a weekly basis.
Take Care of Chlorine Odors
We have all been to a pool that is overrun with chlorine odors. It doesn’t make for a great cleaning environment and it is recommended that you shock the pool to get rid of this odor.
Change Your Pool Filter
While it would be nice if our pool filter could last forever, we need to remember that it is not going to work that way. We need to make sure to replace clogged filters so we are able to keep our pool clean and in proper working condition.
No More Sunscreen Residue
Have you seen the sunscreen residue in the pool but aren’t sure what to do about it? This gross residue can easily be taken care of by putting a tennis ball in the water since it will attract the residue. You can then take the tennis ball and wash it off outside of the pool.
Summer Fun In Your Pool
Now that you have everything taken care of and are ready to take care of your pool you can start planning your Summer fun. Getting your pool ready doesn’t have to be stressful, but once you have it done, it does feel great to know that you have everything taken care of.
