A swimming pool adds to the aesthetic appeal of a property. It also promises hours of fun and excitement for the entire family, as well as making a great setting for barbeques and outdoor parties. However, without proper maintenance, the pool water will become unclean and it will start to lose its beauty.
Here are some effective maintenance tips for Townsville pools:
- Check pool water chemistry
Do this once or twice in summers and once every other week in winters. Maintain a pH level between 7.2 and 7.8. As the pH scale rises, the chlorine content decreases, and so people tend to keep adding it. So the lower the pH level, the less chlorine you will need to use.
- Keep pool supplies updated
If you want your pool cleaning supplies to give the best results, keep them updated. If your supplies are past their expiry dates, dispose them off and restock them. Also, make sure that all chemicals are sealed properly before storing them away during the off season. In case any container was left unsealed, it should be replaced as well.
- Maintain optimum water level
The water level should not be too low or too high. If it’s too low, it can dry up the pump or even burn it. If it’s too high, it can affect the functioning of the skimmer door, which keep the pool debris within the skimmer. For optimal performance, the water should be right at the centre of the pool tile or pool skimmer.
These tips will help you maintain your pool and make sure it lasts you a long time.
