Now that we’re starting a new year once again, we’re at the point when it’s time to establish our New Year’s Resolutions. Common resolutions may include doing more exercise or eating better, but other people may have different aspirations, such as taking better care of their pools. If your goal for the new year is to provide better care for your pool, here are some of the tasks you’ll want to complete.
Give Yourself a Greener Pool
When we say your pool should be greener, we don’t mean changing its color; what we mean is that you can make your pool more eco-friendly. You could install LED lights that don’t use as much energy. You could decrease energy use further by using a variable speed pool pump. Also, if you get a new cartridge pool filter, wasting water will be a thing of the past. Lastly, by using solar heaters, your pool can remain warm when the temperatures drop, and you don’t use any emissions in this manner.
Keep Your Pool Cleaner
Cleaning your pool is an important step towards keeping it in better condition. Some measures are preventive, while others should be done after your pool has gotten dirty.
As a preventive measure, you should trim nearby shrubs and trees. This way, branches won’t be as likely to fall into your pool. Having wind blocks installed can also help keep debris from finding its way into your pool.
If dirt has already gotten in the water, you’ll need to use a pool cleaner to tidy up. Having sufficient water circulation helps ease the process of getting all of the debris out of the water. You’ll also want to change your pool filter regularly.
Safety Measures to Take for the New Year
This is especially important for those with small pets or kids. You need to have the best security measures in place, both for keeping unwanted guests out of your yard, and for preventing anyone from accidentally falling in your pool. Pool gates and fences help with improved yard security while a pool cover can be placed over your swimming pool to keep others from falling into the water.
