Now that spring is here and daylight savings time has arrived, each day is filled with more warmth and sunshine. One way that you can savor bright sunny days is by spending some time by the poolside. Relaxing in your pool can be a wonderful way to spend the day, but keeping it clean is another matter. With that said, it’s still important to keep your pool clean if you’re going to continue enjoying it throughout the season. Here is how you can keep your poolside clean.
Use a Testing Kit
It would be amazing to have a pool attendant on hand to deal with all of your pool maintenance concerns, but most people don’t have this luxury. So instead, a water testing kit may be the best alternative. Using a water testing kit, you can measure the pH level of your water, as well as calcium hardness, and the total alkalinity. Just follow the instructions on your kit, and you should be good to go.
Chlorinate Your Pool
Use chlorine to treat your pool. It helps to speak with a professional pool company to determine the appropriate amount of chlorine for your situation. Chlorine granules are the ones that are used the most often, and they tend to be the cheapest as well. You can go with tables, sticks, or liquids, but you will end up paying a little extra.
With the help of a non-metallic container, put your chlorine granules into the pool water as you are instructed. Don’t add water after you have added chlorine. Then, stir the mixture for somewhere between 30 and 60 seconds, and allow the mixture to settle for another 30 seconds afterward. After that, pour the mixture of chlorine, making sure to apply it to the center of the pool.
Keep Your Pool Covered
With a pool cover, you stop dirt and other types of debris from getting into the water. Before you begin swimming in your pool, get rid of whatever debris is in your pool with the help of a net. You’ll also possibly have to sweep your pool’s bottom. Have your skimmer’s strainer basket cleaned weekly and your pool filter cleaned monthly.
