  • 1. Do's and Don'ts of Swimming Pool Maintenance DO'S AND DON'TS OF SWIMMING POOL MAINTENANCE APPROPRIATE POOL SERVICING IS NECESSARY TO HAVE IT SERVE YOU FOR LONGER DURATION. IT IS REQUIRED FOR SAFETY AS WELL AS TO PREVENT ANY ADVERSE IMPACT ON YOUR HEALTH CAUSED BY INAPPROPRIATE CHEMICAL LEVELS AND BACTERIA GROWTH. THOUGH PROFESSIONAL HELP IS AVAILABLE IN THE FORM OF OUTSOURCING AGENCIES THAT ARE EXCLUSIVELY SPECIALISING IN SUCH SERVICES, A SIMPLE LIST OF DO’S AND DON’TS WILL HELP. THE DO’S BUY A GOOD QUALITY TEST KIT, WHICH CAN TEST PH (WHICH IS A MEASURE OF THE ACTIVITY OF THE HYDROGEN ION (H+). WATER WITH A PH < 7 IS ACIDIC AND WITH A PH > 7 IS CONSIDERED BASIC.), TOTAL ALKALINITY, CALCIUM HARDNESS AND SANITIZER LEVEL. BUY ONE THAT INCLUDES A CYAN URIC ACID TEST AND TELLS YOU WHAT TYPE AND QUANTITY OF PRODUCTS ARE NEEDED TO BALANCE THE WATER. THIS IS THE VERY BASIC REQUIREMENT IN POOL MAINTENANCE. ON A DAILY BASIS, REMOVE ALL DEBRIS, POOL TOYS, AND OTHER OUT OF PLACE ELEMENTS, CLEAN THE STRAINER BASKETS, AND CHECK THE PUMP PARTS. ON A WEEKLY BASIS, VACUUM YOUR POOL COMPLETELY, SCRUB THE WALLS AND THE FLOOR AND TEST YOUR POOL WATER TO AVOID ALGAE GROWTH. CHEMICAL BALANCE IS CRUCIAL IN POOL MAINTENANCE. CARRY OUT POOL WATER TESTING IF YOU HAVE COMPLAINTS OF RED OR BURNING EYES, IF YOU SEE ALGAE OR IF YOU HAVE AN UNPLEASANT ODOUR, HEAVY DOWN POUR, MORE THAN USUAL VISITORS. IF YOU HAVE A HEATER CHECK FOR CALCIUM BUILD-UP TO WIPE THEM OUT WITH ACID USING A PROPER WIRE BRUSHES. DO NOT MIX VARIOUS TYPES AND GRADES OF CHLORINE DO NOT ALLOW ANY PETROLEUM PRODUCTS OR ACIDS TO COME IN CONTACT WITH CHLORINE. DO NOT DRAIN THE POOL WITHOUT APPROPRIATE DIRECTIONS AND CARE AS OTHERWISE THE POOL’S STRUCTURE MIGHT CRACK ON ACCOUNT OF HYDROSTATIC OR GROUND PRESSURE OUTSIDE THE POOL. DO NOT ADD IN ONE PART OF THE POOL ALL OF THE SHOCK PRODUCTS TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE GEL-COAT SURFACE. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS, STEEL WOOL, METAL SCRAPERS, BRUSHES OR TOOLS FOR WIPING OFF THE "BATHTUB" RING WHICH FORMS ON THE POOL WALL OR TILE CAUSED BY BODY OILS, SUNTAN LOTIONS AND AIR BORNE CONTAMINANTS AS THESE CAN EASILY BE REMOVED WITH SWIMMING POOL TILE CLEANER OR OTHER NON ABRASIVE COMMERCIAL TILE OR VINYL CLEANERS. ABRASIVE CLEANERS MAY CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE GEL COAT FINISH. ADD-ONS POOL MAINTENANCE SHOULD INCLUDE UP GRADATION WITH ADD ONES TO MAKE THE SWIMMING POOL A PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE. SOME EXAMPLES IN LIGHTING ARE, POOL LIGHTING, SOLAR GARDEN LIGHTING, LED POOL LIGHTING SYSTEM, FLUSH MOUNT CHROME LIGHTS, FIBRE OPTIC PERIMETER AND FEATURE LIGHTING. YOU MAY CONSIDER ADDING A LAP POOL, A SPA (INCLUDING A PORTABLE HYDROTHERAPY SPA), A SHALLOW BEACH AREA, SOME WATER FEATURES, FEATURE WALLS. YOU MAY CONSIDER SETTING UP AUTOMATIC WATER TOP UP SYSTEMS, COUNTER CURRENT UNITS, SWIM JETS ETC. IN YOUR INITIATIVES IN POOL MAINTENANCE, YOU MAY THINK OF BRINGING IN SOME LIFE AND COLOUR TO YOUR POOL. THIS CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH THE ADDITION OF SWIRLING SLIDES AND SPLASH PADS WITH 12 JETS. DIVING BOARDS IN MANY STYLES, FOLATES, GIANT POOL NOODLES AND INFLATABLE ISLANDS ARE THE FURTHER ADDITIONS WORTHWHILE CONSIDERING.

  • 2. Pool Maintenance – 5 Tips for Summer POOL MAINTENANCE – 5 TIPS FOR SUMMER A POOL IN THE HOUSE IS A GREAT CENTRE OF RECREATION FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. POOL OWNERS EAGERLY AWAIT THE SUMMER MONTHS TO GET MAXIMUM BENEFITS OUT OF THEIR POOLS. HOWEVER, SUMMER MONTHS ARE ALSO A CRUCIAL TIME FOR POOL MAINTENANCE A PROPER POOL MAINTENANCE AVOID MAJOR POOL REPAIR WORKS OCCURS IN FUTURE. SINCE THE POOL IS MOSTLY USED AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER REMAINS CLEAN AND FREE FROM DIRT AND GERMS. CHILDREN LOVE TO SPLASH ABOUT IN THE POOL WHICH IS WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO MAKE SURE THAT THE POOL REMAINS CLEAN AND SANITIZED THROUGHOUT SUMMER. WARM MONTHS ARE ALSO THE TIME WHEN PEOPLE USE THE POOL MORE OFTEN THAN USUAL. THAT IS WHY IT IS ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE POOL CLEAN AND FREE FROM BACTERIA ESPECIALLY IN THE WARM MONTHS. HERE ARE TOP FIVE TIPS IN POOL MAINTENANCE DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS: 1.ADDING CHEMICALS- IF YOU HAVE TO ADD CHEMICALS (CHLORINE AND OTHER POOL CLEANING AGENTS), ADD THEM AT NIGHT OR EVENING, INSTEAD OF IN THE DAYTIME. THERE IS CONSIDERABLE LOSS OF CHEMICALS IN DAYTIME DUE TO EVAPORATION. THIS WILL REDUCE THE EFFICIENCY OF THE CHEMICALS. ALSO, PEOPLE MOSTLY TEND TO USE THE POOL IN THE MORNINGS RATHER THAN IN THE NIGHT. THE CHEMICALS WILL GET MORE TIME TO SANITIZE THE POOL BEFORE IT IS USED THE NEXT DAY. 2. CLEANING THE FLOORS AND WALLS OF THE POOL- IT IS VERY COMMON TO FIND THE GROWTH OF ALGAE ON THE WALLS AND FLOORS OF THE POOL, IF IT IS NOT CLEANED FOR A VERY LONG TIME. THERE MAY ALSO BE A BUILD UP OF BACTERIA AND MINERAL. THIS IS WHY THE POOL FLOORS AND WALLS NEED TO BE CLEANED REGULARLY. YOU CAN USE AN AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANER TO DO THIS WORK. AN ALTERNATE TIP IS TO SCRUB THE FLOORS AND WALLS BY USING A COMBINATION OF DISH WASHING LIQUID AND WATER. IT IS EASY TO GET RID OF DEBRIS STUCK TO POOL SURFACES BY SPRAYING THIS MIXTURE AND THEN SCRUBBING THE SURFACES. 3. MAINTENANCE OF CHEMICAL BALANCE IN THE WATER- AN IMPORTANT PART OF POOL MAINTENANCE IS TO CHECK IF THE CORRECT WATER CHEMICAL BALANCE IS BEING MAINTAINED. YOU CAN DO THIS BY PURCHASING A TEST KIT AND BY DIPPING A STRIP INTO THE WATER TO CHECK THE PH LEVEL. A HIGH PH LEVEL AND LOW CHLORINE LEVEL IS PRONE TO ALGAE GROWTH. KEEP FEEDING CHLORINE TO THE WATER TO WARD OFF THE GROWTH OF BACTERIA. 4. BACKWASH- MAKE IT A HABIT TO REGULARLY BACKWASH THE WASTE WATER OF YOUR POOL AS IT IS ONE OF THE BASIC STEPS OF POOL MAINTENANCE. THIS MAINTAINS THE WATER QUALITY AND THE WATER CAN REMAIN FREE FROM GERMS AND BACTERIA. 5. CLEAN THE WATER SURFACE REGULARLY- THIS IS ONE OF THE IMPORTANT STEPS OF POOL MAINTENANCE. CLEAN THE WATER TO CLEAR THE SURFACE OF DEBRIS, DEAD LEAVES, DEAD INSECTS, ETC. IF NOT CLEANED DAILY, IT WILL CLOG UP THE DRAINAGE AND CLEANING SYSTEMS LEADING TO CLEANING EQUIPMENT FAILURE. FOLLOW THESE STEPS AND YOUR POOL WILL REMAIN SANITIZED AND CONTINUE TO LOOK ITS BEST. CONTACT US FOR A PROPER POOL MAINTAINED OR POOL REPAIR IN SOMERSET AT HTTP://WWW.LEVCOPOOLS.COM
