Keep your pool sparkling blue even while you’re away
Maintaining the pool – even when you’re at home – can be a painstaking process, but with these simple tips and tricks, it doesn’t have to be. The time and effort that is required to maintain our pools often lead us to neglect them, which results in the sparkling blue looking more green than clean. Keeping your pool clean during the year, and especially over the festive season, can be made easier, with these tips and tricks from The Pool Team.
Chlorine vs salt chlorination
Chlorine involves testing the pH level of your pool to calculate out how much of the chemical should be added – a very laborious task, which should usually be carried out multiple times a week.
Another option is salt chlorination which takes place automatically, making those holidays away stress-free. While this type of cleaner still uses chlorine, it injects a less-harmful chemical into the pool through an installed generator, eliminating the need for chlorine shocks and reducing the amount of active maintenance needed to keep your pool clean.
Use a timer
A timer will allow you to run your pool pump at certain intervals throughout the day, in order to get the best ‘clean’ that you possibly can, even while you’re enjoying a break from the regular world. Set the timer for no less than eight hours a day to ensure proper maintenance.
