5 Pool Maintenance Tips

Spring has sprung and the weather is getting warmer; it’s swimming season yet again! Whether you winterize your pool or leave it open during the colder months, spring is the perfect season to get your backyard oasis back in tip top shape. At Triangle Pool Service, we encourage our customers to add their pool maintenance to their spring cleaning To Do list.

Brush the Lining

The pollen count in spring is notoriously high. You may have noticed a light dusting of yellow pollen on your car in the morning. Unfortunately, this dusting of pollen also falls into the water, collecting on the surface before sticking to the edges. When you see a yellow ring around the edge just above the water line, it’s time for a good brushing. Keeping the lining clean of pollen, dirt, and algae will help extend its lifespan and keep your water healthy. Use a brush to scrub the walls of your pool; the dirt and grime will eventually settle on the floor to be vacuumed up later.

Check the Filter

A dirty filter causes high filter pressure which puts unnecessary stress on your pump. Checking the filter on a regular basis and clearing out any debris will prevent break downs and cuts back on the floating debris. The more leaves, branches, and bugs that the filter collects, the less you’ll have to vacuum. If you have any problems with the filter or the pump, call a professional for pool maintenance in Largo.

Keep the Deck Clean

Sweep and clear off the deck regularly to keep debris from blowing into the water. Leaves, dirt, and branches that collect on the deck can easily make their way to the bottom of your pool. A clean deck can prevent unnecessary skimming and vacuuming.
