Your Pool Water
There is nothing more important to your pool than the water. Protecting your family from pollutants and contaminants is vital to your health and safety. Keeping your water clean, clear, and sanitized not only means a healthy pool, but it can actually protect your equipment and the life of your pool.
Pool Filter System
The pool pump system keeps your pool water circulating. This system cleans dirt and other particles from your pool water. Understand what type of filter system you have and do a little research on how to best maintain it.
Since your pool walls are in constant contact with your pool water, anything that enters your pool will end up on your pool interior. Regularly clean your pool walls and vacuum the pool floor. Not all cleaning products are suitable for every type of pool. Use cleaning products specifically formulated for your pool type. Not all products are suitable for every type of pool. Consider a robotic cleaner for ease of cleaning.
Skimmers and Returns
Your pool skimmers pull the water from the pool to the pump. Returns circulate the cleaned water back to your pool. It is imperative that these pieces of equipment stay free of leaves and debris.
With a little research and weekly attention to your pool water, interior, and equipment, you can enjoy a beautiful and safe pool for years to come.
