Stop pool problems before they start with preventative maintenance.

Pool MaintenanceBy MARK CUKRO, Plus One Consulting

The best way to keep a crystal-clear pool is prevention:

  • Keep chemical levels within ideal ranges.
  • Check the flow meter to be sure the pool is circulating water at a proper flow rate.
  • Brush the walls and floor weekly.
  • Keep a preventative amount of algaecide in the pool, most often added weekly.
  • Keep circulation of the water at the proper turnover rate. Do not add harmful chemicals through the skimmers, and keep the skimmers and line basket free of debris.
  • Keep the sand clean and do not add chemicals such as flocculants that are not recommended for the type of filter at your pool. Many are available, so be sure to use the right ones.
