Summer is in full swing and that means one thing for pool owners — time to get out and enjoy the pool! But if you’re like most pool owners, you also dread the inevitable repairs (or remodel) that will be needed down the road. Pool maintenance and repairs can be costly, but there are ways to limit them in the future. In this blog post, Sea Breeze Pools will share some tips on how to maintain your pool so that repairs (or a remodel) are minimal in the future.
Keep Your Pool Clean & Maintained
Proper Maintenance is a Must
If you want to avoid costly pool repairs in the future, there are some preventative measures you can take. First, it's important to have regular maintenance done on your pool. This includes things like cleaning the pool filter regularly (twice a week during heavy use), making sure your swimming pool vacuum is operating properly, testing your pool pump, checking the pH levels, and skimming the surface of the water. By doing these things regularly, you can catch potential problems early on and nip them in the bud. For more information about how to properly maintain your pool check out our blog:
Treat Your Pool with Respect
Another way to limit future repairs is to be mindful of how you use your pool. Avoid using it as a dumping ground for trash or leaves to ensure that you aren’t making your pool system work too hard. Be careful not to let pets or children play too roughly in the water so that they do not damage the pool surface to sharp objects. Taking these precautions will help keep your pool in good condition for years to come.
Regularly Inspect Your Pool System
Inspect your pool regularly for any cracks, leaks, or other damage. If you notice any problems, address them immediately so they don't have a chance to get worse. If you aren't sure what you should be looking for when inspecting your pool, it may be best to call a local pool expert, and request an inspection if you think something may be wrong.
Use Pool Chemicals Properly
Be careful not to overdo it when using chemicals in your pool. Too much of a good thing can actually be bad for your pool and lead to costly repairs down the road. When in doubt, always err on the side of caution and use fewer chemicals than you think you need. Always make sure that you are only using chemicals that are meant to be used - avoid chemicals that will eat away at the surface of your pool and equipment.
