It’s that time of year again where your pool needs attention in advance of cooler temperatures. When transitioning from summer to fall pool care routines, here’s what you need to know.
Don’t Stop with a Regular Cleaning Routine
Even though mornings and evenings are crisp, it’s imperative to continue with a good pool cleaning routine. Especially because you can expect an uptick in organic debris such as leaves and pollen as the seasons change and more winds blow in. Extra debris in your pool can damage your filter equipment so continue to clean filters, empty skimmer baskets and brush and vacuum your pool. Remember, a good clean filter can keep your pool water better balanced and lengthen the life of your pool equipment, two important components to saving time and money.
Good Water Chemistry
Most swimming pools require a little extra attention during the warmer months to mitigate the growth and spread of algae. During the cooler months, maintaining good water chemistry is important but it is possible to cut back to bi-monthly water checkups if your pool agrees with a reduction in care. We recommend testing and balancing it weekly, then moving to bi-weekly to see how your water performs.
Cover Your Pool
Our experts at Blue Water Pool Chemical Company also recommend keeping your pool well-covered. Not only is this a great way to help your water naturally retain its heat to lengthen your swimming season, it can also keep dirt and debris out of your pool for cleaner water.
