Keeping your swimming pool in tip-top shape does not have to be a stressful task. With the right knowledge and resources – including Pool Mart’s wide array of products and services – pool maintenance is just a few steps away.
Maintain The Right Chemical Balance
The first step to crystal-clear, healthy water is maintaining the right chemical balance. This means regularly testing your pool water for pH, alkalinity, and chlorine levels. High pH or alkalinity can cause cloudy water and scale formation, while low levels can cause damage to your pool’s equipment and uncomfortable swimming conditions.
Pool Mart offers a comprehensive range of testing kits and chemical products to help you keep your pool’s water chemistry perfectly balanced.
Regular Cleaning & Skimming
Cleaning your pool is essential for keeping the water clear and healthy. Regular skimming removes debris before it sinks to the bottom, making it easier to vacuum and reducing the need for chemicals. Brushing the walls of your pool helps to remove any buildup of algae.
At Pool Mart, we stock a wide variety of manual and automatic pool cleaners, skimmers, and handheld brushes to make your cleaning tasks easier.
Filters And Shock Treatment
It is also essential to clean and replace your pool’s filter regularly. A well-functioning pool filter, which helps to remove small debris and contaminants from your water, is key to maintaining the overall sanitation levels.
Shock treatments are another valuable tool for keeping your pool clean. The process involves adding a high amount of chlorine to destroy organic material and bacteria.
Keep An Eye On Water Levels
In the pool care routine, one thing that often gets overlooked is the pool’s water level. During hot summer months, the water level can significantly reduce due to evaporation or frequent usage. When the water level is too low, it can cause strain and damage your pump.
On the other hand, if your pool’s water level is too high, the skimmer door will not work efficiently. This means a significant amount of debris wouldn’t be properly removed from your pool.
At Pool Mart, we provide educational resources and guidance to ensure you are well-equipped to handle these essential pool care tasks like a pro. So, whether you’re a new pool owner or a seasoned swimming enthusiast, remember to check in with Pool Mart for all your pool maintenance needs.
