The summer season is about here, and one great part about summer is being able to jump into a pool for a refreshing dip! Perhaps you already have a pool installed at home, and you’re getting ready to set it back up for a summer of fun. Before you do, though, you need to check on your pool and make sure it’s ready to go. The maintenance procedures for your pool can vary, depending on the variant of pool you have, but today, we’ll be discussing the maintenance that comes with an aboveground pool. Follow these maintenance tips if you want your aboveground pool ready for this summer.
Keep Your Filter and Pump Running Daily
If water remains still for too long, bacteria can start to develop and make your pool unfit for swimming. That’s why it’s crucial to keep your water circulated by running your pool pump and filter regularly. Ideally, you can keep them running constantly, but some budgets aren’t equipped to handle that kind of expense. In this case, you’ll want to aim for somewhere between 8 and 12 hours of water circulation per day.
Get Your Pool Cleaned
Cleaning will be needed for your aboveground pool because it keeps the water sanitary and safe for anyone who wants to go for a swim. Pool pumps can handle some of the mess, but areas like the walls and floor won’t get nearly as much circulation, meaning you’ll have to tend to them yourself. Good tools for pool cleaning include scrubbers, pool vacuums, pool brushes, and net skimmers. Preferably, you’ll be cleaning your pool weekly, but you may have to clean more often than that if you’re frequently using your pool, or if there are areas around your home, like trees and shrubs, that put your pool at greater risk of getting dirty.
