Common Mistakes With Pool Chemicals

Common Mistakes With Pool Chemicals

Maintenance for pools can be a challenge to get started with if you’ve recently moved into a home with an existing pool and have never handled the chemicals before. While you may be tempted to take care of the pool chemicals on your own, it’s important that you get familiar with some of the most common mistakes surrounding pool maintenance.

Forgetting to Check the Chemistry Regularly

If you’re new to owning a pool, it’s easy to see how you can forget to check the chemistry on a regular basis. While you should always check the pool chemicals each week, you’ll want to do so even more in the summer. Checking the chemistry of the water weekly will help you make any necessary adjustments so that the water stays sparkling clean.

Allowing the pH to Get Over 8.0

Checking the chemistry of the water is crucial since the pH level can change suddenly, leading to algae and the water being unsafe to swim in. The number one thing you’ll want to avoid for your pool is allowing the pH level to get over 8.0.

Skipping Important Repairs to Any Parts

When servicing your pool, it’s important that you take the time to check any of the parts responsible for cleaning and trapping debris. From skimmer baskets that catch leaves to pumps that help circulate water, you need to regularly check that everything is working properly and repairs aren’t needed.
