Pool Cleaning Tips | Pool Cleaning Lake Worth

There is nothing like the beginning of summer, right before school lets out, when the weather is nice enough to pull the cover off your pool. With the summer weather in full swing, your pool can end up being your best way to cool off. Whether you live in Florida or Alaska, have a salt water system pool or freshwater; there are several pool maintenance things to keep up on and there are several pool professionals that can help you out. Here are some things to remember when cleaning your at home pool.

  • Skim it! Upon opening your pool for the summer, the first thing you should do is clear out all the junk that got caught under there. Any leaves, sticks, or other debris can become damaging and end up costing you much more than you originally thought. It is recommended that you get in the habit of skimming your pool every other day. If that doesn’t sound like something you would want to do, then look into calling some pool guys.
  • After you get into the routine of cleaning your pool every day, don’t forget to clean the skimmer basket.After an entire season of use, it has most likely collected debris that become damaging to your pool filters.
  • When was the last time you cleaned your ladder? Yes, your ladder can bring debris into your pool if it has been sitting outside all winter, but it is also just nice for it to be clean. If it collected an stains during the winter, just give it a good power wash then the chlorine should take off any excess.
  • A highly suggested tip is at some point during the swimming season, hire some pool guys that willclean the inside lining of your pool. After a few months, debris, suntan lotion, and animals (if you’re lucky) can cause harm to the filters and inner lining.

With those tips in mind, any pool should stay perfect throughout the summer.
