Owning a swimming pool and enjoying the Australian summer weather by swimming in the sparkling waters is a dream of many. Since everything needs proper maintenance to keep healthy, so does your swimming pool. Pool cleaning can be a hassle and a challenging task, but several ways can help keep your collection healthy and clean.
Checking the water levels
- Keep a check on water levels, and it should not fall below the skimmer intake tubes, as this might damage the pump.
- Water evaporates, kids might splash it out, heavy rainfall may cause the levels to go up.
- If the level drops too low, you may add water through a hosepipe.
Check the pH levels
- The pH level of your pool tells you how alkaline or acidic is the pool water.
- Higher pH will reduce the chlorine level.
- Ideally, it should be between 7.2-7.6, slightly alkaline to keep you safe, and also to activate chlorine
- this range will prevent eye or skin irritation and also save your pool from corrosion
- Check for the calcium and chlorine content, cyanuric acid that protects chlorine in your pool
Cleaning a pool involves a lot of tasks. It is not only physical cleaning but also lots of mechanical equipment that need regular maintenance. The pumps, heating systems, and filters also need to be checked to keep working in excellent order all year round. Therefore, taking the help of a professional expert for cleaning your pool is a better idea.
