Having a swimming pool could bring relaxation at home to a different level. This brings your recreational experience closer to that of your vacation in the Caribbean. And its presence promotes a healthy lifestyle since it paves way for an opportunity to master swimming as your sport.

Aside from that, the presence of swimming pool can improve the look of your backyard. Your landscaping could be further enhanced, as decks and other architectural pieces would be added on the poolside. The presence of the water could make your landscape mimic a paradise. Hence, this creates one lovely site into your homes that could ease up tension.

However, for a homeowner to enjoy these privileges, he or she has to maintain the pool. Maintaining the pool is the bittersweet symphony of a pool owner. And it needs to be done in order to keep the pool safe and clean.

Here are some of the essential maintenance guidelines that a pool owner should be doing:

    Your pool water must be maintained at the desired level to preserve its elements. Your pool isn't just a big tub filled with water. It has pumps, motor and other equipment that makes plumbing possible. If water goes beyond or below the desired level, these components can be destroyed.

    So as the chemical levels, it also needs to be maintained the normal range. Chemicals are present in the water and it brought by the various sanitizers and the existing chemicals from your plumbing system. If they are not maintained within the normal range, the pool water could be unsafe for the swimmer and cause the same fate to your equipments if the water level is not maintained.

  2. Clean the pool at all times

    Cleaning the pool can be done in many ways. The first one is through straining the water. Any floating debris at sight must be taken away. Another way to clean the pool is through backwashing. You may have to scrub your pool once in a while, especially on spring opening, to remove presence of algae on the surface. You can also clean your pool through eliminating dirt in basket strainers, skimmers and other components of the pool. You do not want them to accumulate or your plumbing system as this could block. Hence, filtering the water would become impossible to do.

    It is a must that you check the pressure. If it rose, it means your home is need of cleaning. You can also check the color of the water.

  3. Monitor your equipment

    Perform regular maintenance checkups. This allows you to check the condition of the individual components of the pool. It is a must that they are in a good condition, to keep good water circulation at all times.

  4. Close the pool during cold seasons and winterize them

    If you are in cold regions, you must close your outdoor swimming pool. You also have to follow proper winterizing procedures so that you have lesser work to do when you open your pool. At the same time, winterizing helps you preserve the components of your pool.
