Top Summer Pool Maintenance Tips
Balance The Water
Poor water should be properly maintained all year round to ensure the safety of swimmers, as well as to keep the interior of your pool protected. There are 5 key elements to maintaining water quality in a swimming pool:
- pH level
- total alkalinity (TA)
- calcium hardness
A pool’s PH should be between 7 and 7.6, while the levels of chlorine will depend on a number of factors including what type of pump system you have, filtration, water level and amount of debris. More vigilance is needed in summer as high temperatures can cause evaporation and lead to water levels falling below the skimmer box.
