Keeping your swimming pool sparkling clean doesn’t have to be as difficult as you might think. All pools are different and so are their maintenance needs. It is important to speak with your swimming pool provider to learn what is needed in your own maintenance regime. As technology advances, there are various tools and equipment to help streamline the process of maintaining your swimming pool. Once thing is for sure, all pool caretakers can agree that the secret to pristine pool health is regular, routine care. Here are just a few common tips to get you started.

You should check the pool’s chemistry at least twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter. By doing this you can make minor adjustments to your water chemistry.

Always keep chemicals stored out of direct sunlight. Keep them in a cool dry place. Do NOT store acid and chlorine right next to each other.

Skimming is very important. Even if your pool is protected, debris always seems to find its way. This debris will float for a while, but eventually will break down and sink to the bottom of the pool. If this builds up, it cannot only look unappealing for swimmers, but also can cause damage to the pool.
