Swimming pools are a luxury that not many home owners are able to afford; more so because of the extensive maintenance that it brings along, as any lapse in maintenance can lead to some serious issues. When you have a pool at home there are a few things that you need to really careful about. Safety, security and health are the key words that should always be taken care of, as far as swimming pool maintenance is concerned.
Once you decide to have a pool and end up making one in your backyard or buying a house which has one, always the first thing that has to be ensured is that the pool is covered, when not in use. There are economical pool covers in the market, which cover the pool adequately. This ensures that the pool does not become a trap for human beings or animals, especially in the evenings and night times. The area around the pool should be adequately lighted so that no mishap occurs. Also, a cover can prevent any unwanted rubbish from falling into the water and dirtying the pool. The area around the pool should always be kept neat and tidy, especially after a pool side party. Food particles near the water can lead to decay and this can generate micro-organisms which can end up contaminating the water.
From a health and sanitation angle, there are many steps that you need to take in order to ensure that your pool does not become a breeding ground for any diseases. Apart from food clearance, the water quality has to be continuously monitored. As children and adults use the pool alike, contamination of water with any unwanted particles or even biological organisms like algae can lead to serious consequences.
Chlorine dosing is one activity which has to be done regularly to ensure safety and cleanliness of water. The dosing has to be done as recommended by the competent authorities, as high dosing can lead to issues like burning of eyes or even stomach upsets. Water filtration and changing the water after a certain period are necessary requisites. Always make sure that the filter is clean and not choked, as an inefficient filter can also cause water contamination. Another critical aspect is related to safety of the users of the pool. You should always ensure that adequate safety equipment is available at the pool side, so that the same can be put to use immediately, in case of any emergencies. Apart from chlorine dosing, there are also certain other chemicals which are required to be dosed at regular intervals, in order to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene.
