Keeping your pool in top shape is a must if you want to get the most use out of it year-round. Whether you’re new to pool ownership or just looking for the best way to care for your pool, we’ve got you covered.

Read on for our top tips to keep your pool sparkling all year long:

Carry out regular spot checks and cleans

Doing a little now can save having to do a lot later, and that’s just as true when it comes to pools as it is with everything else. Checking all filters and machinery regularly can help to ensure cleaning is carried out when needed. It also means problems are discovered more quickly, allowing for fast repairs to keep your pool in beautiful condition.

Cover up the pool when it’s not in use

From bird droppings to the neighbourhood pets taking a dip, an uncovered pool may end up being a dirty pool. If you’re using your pool frequently, using a cover isn’t so essential. But if you’re off on your holidays for a week, covering up your pool is both safer for the local wildlife and can mean far less cleaning on your plate when you return.

Keep an eye on the chemistry

The chemistry of your pool plays a large role in whether it’s clean and healthy or in need of some work. pH strips and similar tests can let you know quickly and easily how your pool chemistry is doing. If everything’s in balance, keep doing what you’re doing – and if it’s not, it might be time to do a reset and change things up.

Check for cracks and other damage

Damage to your pool doesn’t just mean your water ends up leaking into the surrounding ground. Cracks are a two-way street, and if the water is getting out, dirt and toxins might be getting in. Check for damage and fix it as quickly as possible if you want to keep your pool in perfect condition for as long as possible.

Invest in an automatic pool cleaner

If you don’t have time for regular pool cleaning yourself, a robot helper might be just what you need. Automatic pool cleaners are great for doing standard, frequent cleans. While they can’t do everything, they help you keep on top of things in-between bigger cleans and remove debris your filters haven’t caught.

Hire a professional pool cleaning service

An expert pool cleaning or pool maintenance service is a good move for any busy pool owner. If you don’t have the time to spare on upkeep, but you want to regularly use a clean and healthy pool, hiring a professional is always a good bet. Whether it’s regular maintenance or a one-off clean, there’s nothing wrong with seeking professional help.
