On Repairs: My Experience Explained

Steps to Swimming Pool Maintenance Swimming pool maintenance is a technical process, which focuses on clean water and balanced water chemistry, therefore the maintenance must be a weekly task of pool cleaning and maintaining the chemical balance of the pool water by testing the pH and free available chlorine in the pool water, as well as conducting shock-treat. Additional shock treatment must be performed, if the following incidence occurs: heavy rains and windstorms, more swimmers using the pool, foul odor from the pool water, extreme temperatures, swimmers experiencing burning, red eyes, algae growth, and murky, slimy water. The results of properly balancing your swimming pool water by maintaining the correct levels of pH of water, alkalinity and calcium hardness are: metal equipment and accessories of the pool are prevented from corrosion; plaster surfaces of the pool are protected from etching; prevents scale formation which can damage pool equipment, stain surfaces, and cloud your water; and prevents eye and skin irritation. In properly maintaining the chlorine level of the swimming pool, see to it that the level is in between 1 and 4 ppm in order to prevent bacteria and algae growth, as well as keeping proper sanitation of the pool. There are many sources of chlorine, such as basic chlorinating tabs, liquid chlorine, chlorinating tabs, or chlorinating granules, to help keep the pool clean. The basic chlorinating tablets can be bought in1 inch and 3 inch sizes and the following are their properties: slow-dissolving tablets, has a built-in stabilizer to protect the chlorine from sunlight burn-off, and can be used in a floating dispenser, skimmer or automatic chlorinator. The properties of liquid chlorine are: two or three times stronger when formulated for pools, easy to apply and effective as a sanitizer, and has a short shelf life. There are many varieties of chlorinating tablets that can effectively remove contaminants in the pool water, as well as soften the water and protect the pool equipment. The beneficial use of chlorinating granules is that they have multi-functional capabilities, such as chlorinating, shocking and killing algae in a single, daily application.

Shocking the swimming pool should be performed every week, without fail, in order to do the following: get rid of contaminants which can cause cloudy water, get rid of chlorine odor and eye irritation, and reducing the need for other chemicals. There are two kinds of shock products: basic shock products, which have these properties: kill bacteria, breakdown cosmetics, suntan lotions, perspiration and other swimmers’ wastes, reduces chlorine odor and eye irritation, and helps to keep the pool sparkling clear, and multi-functional shock products, which have the following properties: restore water clarity by destroying bacteria and swimmers’ wastes, balances the pH of the water, enhances filtration, protects pool water from algae growth.

There are two regular tasks that must be habitually done for your swimming pool: the daily task, which is skimming the debris out of the pool and cleaning all skimmer baskets during the swimming season, and the weekly task, which is testing the pool water, cleaning the walls and floor using cleaners, brushes, and vacuums and hosing down the pool area after cleaning.
