Summer has come and gone, but your time in your pool does not have to end! When the weather is nice out, you can still enjoy a good swim. To help you prepare for the best possible pool experience this fall, here are eight top tips:
1. Clean the water of debris
With fall comes the falling leaves, which means increased pool debris. That is why it is important to check your pool at least once a day to remove the leaves out of the water. An alternative option would be to consider purchasing a cover to protect your pool against debris.
2. Clean the filter
Your pool’s filter is more likely to get clogged by Fall debris and leaves. Ensure that you are checking the filters every time you use your pool. If you continue to do so, you can minimize the number of times you need to clean or replace your filter.
3. Check the pool cover
If you do have a pool cover, it is also important to check that it is clean and free of debris. If you see dirt on the cover, you can give it a good scrub.
It is also important to check for cracks or damage and replace your pool cover if necessary.
4. Trim trees and hedges
If your pool continues to have leaves falling into it, check to see if there are any nearby trees and hedges that should be trimmed back. This can help reduce the amount of cleaning you need to do. If you do need large trees trimmed, contact a professional.
5. Repair any damage or cracks
This goes without saying, repairing your pool of any damage or cracks is essential for pool safety. Having regular maintenance checks for this and having repairs done as early as possible will guarantee you a better pool experience.
6. Adjust temperature levels
As the weather gets colder, it is important to adjust the temperature of your pool accordingly. You may need specific resources to do so and we would recommend you adjust your budget accordingly.
7. Check water levels
When the temperature of your pool is higher, the water will evaporate faster. That is why it is essential to check your water levels as regularly as possible. If you notice the water levels falling, refill it to the necessary level.
8. Monitor pool chemicals
When the water and air temperatures are lower, that means you will need fewer chemicals. Continuously monitor your chemical levels daily and adjust them according to the changing temperatures.
You are now ready to enjoy your pool for the rest of the fall season! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us today.
