Need some tips to keep your pool sparkling clean? Monitoring pool chemicals is the most important step. Test your pool water weekly using a water testing kit or bring a water sample to Mansfield Feed Mill and we will test it for you! Always test the pool water alkalinity, pH and chlorine regularly. Chlorine generally needs to be added every day, unless you have an automatic chlorinator or floating chlorinator. Keep in mind that the temperature has a drastic effect on your swimming pool. In North Texas, the extreme summer temperatures mean that you may have to pay more attention to your swimming pool maintenance in order to keep it crystal clear at all times. Always store swimming pool chemicals in a cool, dry, place.
Also, make sure you brush down the sides and bottom of the pool to remove calcium scale and prevent algae buildup. Remember to vacuum the bottom of the pool floor weekly! As the summer progresses and the water temperature heats up, algae will grow more quickly on the pool bottom.
We hope you find these tips to keep your pool sparkling clean helpful. Kick back and enjoy your summer!
