Get to know your pool

Before you rush out to buy maintenance products, it’s worth getting to know the basic parts of your pool and their functions. This way you can ensure that your pool runs smoothly all year round, and if any issues do pop up, you can solve them quickly and easily. It comes down to four things: your pool water, your pool filter, the interior walls of your pool, and your skimmer. All four parts need to work together to help your pool last longer. For example, pool water that has mineral build-up can cause corrosion. Do a little research on your pool anatomy, whether your poolis a family splash zone or an Insta-worthy oasis.

Circulation for your pool

Proper pool circulation is key to healthy and safe swimming, and it also means that you will rarely have issues like cloudy water or pool algae to deal with. Keep your pump and filter systems running daily to maximise circulation. If you can, your pool pump and filter should run 24 hours a day, every day. But since that’s not feasible for everyone’s budget or equipment, run your filter at least 10 to 12 hours a day. The other key component to good pool circulation is to frequently backwash your filter. Every filtration system is different so it’s worth getting to know yours!

Cleaning for your pool

Chemicals and filters can only do so much for your pool before a little elbow grease is necessary to keep it clean! Between your family and friends, Mother Nature, and her critters and creatures, you’ll need a weekly skim, brush, and vacuum to keep debris out of your water, and to keep your pool walls sparkling clean. Try to do it more frequently or invest in an automatic pool cleaner to make the job a little easier. After all, you should be spending your time enjoying your pool, not cleaning it!


 Useful Tip: Residues from sunscreen products are notoriously bad for your pool. Choose brands that are waterproof to minimise the amount of oils that end up in your pool.

Chemistry (Why Chlorine?)

Chlorine simply is the best way to eradicate microorganisms and germs and make pool water clean and safe to swim in. But before you reach for any treatments, start by doing a water test. Understanding what is in your water, and what isn’t, is the first step to balancing it, and keeping your pool bright and blue. Your pool chemistry will take a dip after rainstorms and pool parties. Simply treat your pool water according to what your test results tells you. 


Tip: Always treat your pool at dusk, or at night, because the sun’s ultraviolet rays will affect the chlorine levels before it has a chance to do its job.

Maintain a good schedule

Having a swimming pool is a brilliant way to enjoy a little fun in the sun in the comfort of your own backyard. But it can quickly feel like a chore if you aren’t well prepared. Jot down a maintenance schedule and put it up somewhere convenient in order not to miss any important tasks. Better yet, if you have household help, you can add names next to each task to share the workload. Pools run best when they are treated routinely and consistently. Plan ahead and you won’t wake up to any green surprises. This way your pool will stay swim-friendly all year round1

Watch your water levels

The physical water level of your pool is just as important as the chemicals you put into the water. If the water level is too low or too high, you may cause problems for the filter. A particularly hot week in the summer or a heavy rainstorm will affect the levels – the ideal is about halfway up the skimmer box opening. Don’t submerge the skimmer box completely. If the level is too low due to evaporation or backwashing, you can top up with a hose, and if it’s too high, simply backwash or use the waste setting on your filter. Once you’re done, test your water again and make sure your chemicals are still in balance.
