Although your pool gets most of its use in summertime, pool maintenance throughout the year is important and varies through each of the seasons.
As a pool owner, there are a number of steps you can take to ensure you keep your water playground looking it’s best and last for years.
1. Clean Pool Cover
Debris may have gathered on top of your pool cover, so before removing it clear it first with a leaf blower or broom.
2. Walls & Floor
Thoroughly clean the pool and vacuum the walls and floor.
Check the pump is working properly or organise a full pool equipment service by a licensed pool and spa technician.
Check or replace fittings and check for leaks.
5. Chlorine Levels
Check the chlorine and pH levels every two weeks.
6. Check Skimmer
Empty the skimmer basket when full. Occasionally check the water level is half way up the skimmer box opening.
7. Check Pressure Gauge
Occasionally check the pressure gauge on the filter is not indicating ‘backwash’.
8. Pool Lights
Turn the pool lights on for at least 30 minutes a week to prevent build-up of moisture within the light and wiring.
