Getting Your Pool Ready for Summer

Getting your pool ready for summer as the temperature rises means preparing your pool for a season of fun in the sun. Proper maintenance and preparation will ensure a safe and enjoyable swimming experience for your family. Grab your swimsuit and sunscreen, and get ready to make a splash all season long!

Clean & Clear — Start by removing any debris, leaves, and dirt from the pool using a skimmer or leaf net. Thoroughly clean the pool walls and floor with a pool brush and vacuum to remove algae and other buildup.

Check Chemistry — Test the water chemistry using a pool testing kit or bring a water sample to your local pool store for analysis. Adjust the pH, chlorine, and alkalinity levels as needed to maintain a balanced pool environment.

Inspect Equipment — Check all pool equipment, including pumps, filters, and heaters, for any signs of damage or wear. Replace or repair any faulty equipment to ensure proper functionality throughout the summer months.

Safety First — Inspect and test all pool safety equipment, including fences, gates, decking, and alarms, to ensure they are in good working order. Review pool safety rules with your family and guests to prevent accidents and injuries.

Maintain Regularly — Keep up with regular pool maintenance tasks, such as skimming the surface, cleaning the filters, and checking the water chemistry, throughout the summer season. This will help keep your pool clean and inviting for swimmers.
