A Swimming pool makes a wonderful addition to any home, but they do require regular maintenance, whether you employ a contractor or do it yourself, the work has to be done to avoid expensive and potentially dangerous problems, including invalidating your buildings insurance policy. Your pool's chemistry needs checked twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter.
By checking the pools alkalinity and chlorine concentration regularly you can make minor adjustments as needed. Sand or DE filters need backwashed, but take care not to do it too often, filters generally require backwashing when the pressure gauge rises 8 PSI or more from clean. You must also clean the skimmer basket and/or the hair/lint pot in the pool pump, if these are full of debris you will get poor circulation, potentially creating big problems.
Brush the walls and tiles down often to avoid tile calcification, which will take an expensive specialist to remove. Ensure you should run your pump about 1 hour for every 10 degrees of temperature, circulation is the key to a low maintenance swimming pool, poor circulation means a stagnant pool, unpleasant! Special care should also be taken when it comes to broken or missing drains or suction sources, this a real and dangerous hazard as it is possible for swimmers limbs or consumes to become snagged in broken drains, keeping them underwater with potentially fatal consequences.
