Summer is truly upon, and days by the pool are possible again at last. The chances are that you’ve already gone for your first swim of the year, and spent plenty of time poolside trying to work on your tan. But guess what? Your tan isn’t the only thing which needs attention this summer.
How often does your pool end up in a state before the season is out? How many times do you get a few swims in before your pool becomes too much to handle? If you’re anything like most, then this probably happens more often than you’d like. Sadly, as well as being a colossal waste, this lack of a usable pool can leave your summers looking a whole lot less luxurious than they should.
The good news is that we’re determined to help you use your pool all summer round. That’s why we’ve put together a few simple pointers to help you keep it clean from the start of the season to the end.
Invest in a professional clean

Do a weekly chemical check
Even after a professional clean, there’s no way your pool will stay sparkling if you don’t carry out regular chemical checks. The chemicals you use in that water are there to kill all the nasty bacteria and pool scum which you want to avoid. But, chemicals can’t take care of themselves, and one dropped level could lead to all manner of nasties in your pool. Make sure it doesn’t happen by taking time to do a chemical check of both chlorine and pH levels every week after your professional clean.
Don’t forget your filter
While chemicals kill bacteria and keep scum from building, your filter gets rid of all those pesky pieces of debris which have a habit of falling in. The trouble is that, as there’s more debris during summer months, there’s a pretty high chance that your filter could get clogged up. One of the best ways to avoid this is to use a manual pool net to catch the worst parts of debris at the end of every day. You should also keep a close eye on filter pressure, as a high rating is a sure indication that something is blocking your filter and stopping it from doing its job. In that instance, be sure to act fast, and then sit back to enjoy a pool which can easily stay clean all summer long.
