When taking care of a swimming pool, there are a lot of steps to follow to ensure your pool stays in top form. Because of how many steps are needed to care for your pool, there are also many chances to make mistakes during pool maintenance procedures. That’s why we want to cover these potential mistakes today, so that you know what to avoid doing when you’re caring for your own pool. Here are some of the swimming pool maintenance errors you will want to avoid making.
Not Keeping Your Pool Filter Clean
It’s important that your pool remains clean at all times, and there is no component more important for doing this than your pool filter. That’s why you have to keep your filter clean, no matter what. All filters have their limits, and as they continue to get dirtier, they lose their effectiveness, which in turn causes your pool to become dirty as well. Your pool pump will also have to work harder if your filter ever gets clogged up.
Not Monitoring Your Pool’s Water Level
While it might not seem like an important detail, the water level of your pool is more critical than you may think. Water levels that are too high mean that your skimmer can’t work properly. The skimmer will not be able to close, meaning it can’t contain any debris it’s designed to pull in.
On the flip side, water levels that are too low can also be a problem. When water levels aren’t high enough in your pool, your skimmer pulls in air rather than water, which causes the skimmer to overheat. This causes damage to your pool pump and cuts down its lifespan. If that’s not enough, circulation in your pool is halted, and the rest of your pool equipment will be left unable to function.
