Pool builders know that owning a pool or spa can sometimes be confusing when it comes to maintenance and service. Employ a pool maker to provide service and maintenance after the pool or hot tub is installed to keep it in tip-top condition and to keep the water clean, clear, and always swimming.
The following are spa and pool care and treatment tips:
You will need to invest in coverage because you are in the middle of a pool building project – actually, this should be part of your budgeting step. Coatings help you lower your overall maintenance costs and save on chemical and heating costs. The lid reduces evaporation and can serve as an additional safety barrier to protect children and pets from falling into the water.
If you don't have a retractable lid, you'll need to keep it somewhere while you enjoy the water. Talk to your contractor about lid storage areas – you can even build a seating area that doubles as a lid area.
· Write down the operating pressure of your swimming pool filter with a waterproof marker and note this after installing a new filter or after cleaning an old filter.
· All manuals and operating instructions must be easily accessible. There are times when you think there is a big problem with the timer when it might require reprogramming.
· Leave the pool as soon as you hear thunder or lightning and return to the water only 20 minutes after you last heard thunder.
The correct way to empty your pool between pool service visits is to work slowly around the pool or spa. Works on walls and floors. Take your time as moving fast only stirs up the dirt, making it difficult to remove.
