All across Orlando the warming weather signifies the end of winter and the beginning of the long Florida hot season. So now’s the right time to get your pool back in tip-top shape by performing a few swimming pool maintenance duties that will help keep your pool clean and healthy all season.
Remove the Pool Cover
If you have a pool cover, it might be tempting to lift it off and dive right in. But it’s essential to take proper care of the cover first. Before taking off your pool cover, remove any standing water (a wet/dry vacuum works well), and get rid of any leaves and other debris. Clean off the cover and allow it to fully dry before folding it up and storing it.
Check Your Water Levels
Even with a pool cover, it’s possible to have lost some water due to evaporation. Do a check and make sure that you have the proper water level in your pool.
Take Care of the Equipment
Inspect your pump and lubricate or replace any o-rings needing some extra attention. Now is also an excellent time to inspect your pool’s plumbing connections, and to visually inspect all of the other equipment:
Once visually inspected, power on the equipment and look for any drips or leaks. Continue to replace any o-rings as necessary.
Run Your Pump
Proper pool chemistry is essential in keeping your waters clean and pristine. Before leaping into your pool, an important part of swimming pool maintenance is running the pump for several hours to ensure that the pool chemicals are adequately circulated.These tips are a good start to making sure your pool is safe and ready for months of enjoyment.
