Proper maintenance of my pool?
While it may be tempting to turn off your pump and filter while your pool is out of action, keeping it running will help delay your pool turning green. Running the pump will keep your pool water moving, pushing it through the filter to remove dirt and debris.
Empty your pool’s skimmer and pump basket regularly.
Cleaning your pool is a must to protect it and will help prevent bacteria growth. It is important to clean and brush the pool on a regular basis.
Net any debris off the surface of the pool water, brush the entire surface of the pool, including tiled areas, steps etc.
Without the customary chemical care provided by your pool maintenance company, you are likely to see the following things happen:
Your pool will become cloudy and you’ll be unable able to see the drain at the bottom.
You may see an increase in mosquitos as water becomes stagnant and they begin to breed.
There will also be a risk of your pool water carrying waterborne infections such as E. Coli, and skin infections, amongst others.
