Swimming Season is moving swiftly among us and we here at Coastal Luxury Outdoors know that our customers are eager to jump in and start enjoying their backyard oasis. We wanted to take a moment to give you some helpful tips to tide you over while your pool heats up those last few degrees to that optimal swimming temperature.
Before jumping into your pool, it’s important to take a few steps to ensure that your pool equipment is operating correctly, and the water is safe to swim in. Our trained pool technicians check all of this and more on a weekly basis. So sleep easy knowing you’re already covered if you turn to us for your weekly pool service needs. However, if it has been some time since your pool was last properly serviced you may notice less than stunning water quality compared to when it was last used. If this is the case, please give us a call immediately so we can come up with a game plan to get it up to standard and get you back in the water.
It is a good idea to check all the equipment that you rely on for your pool to operate smoothly: the drain covers, pump lid, motor, valve function, pressure gauge, and filter rings. If you aren’t sure what to look for, call on a pool expert like Coastal Luxury Outdoors who can test your equipment and make sure it is operating safely and efficiently for you.
If you use a swimming pool cover during the winter months right now is the best time to take it off. Be sure to give the pool cover good cleaning with a light detergent and let it fully dry before folding it up a storing it for the summer months. This will prevent any premature degradation such as dry rotting. Now that your pool is uncovered it is time to assess the water quality.
Last but not least, having the right balance of chemicals in the water is critical for the health of your pool and the swimmers who get into it. Making the effort to properly maintain your pool to extend its life and ensure your pool doesn’t become home to dangerous bacteria is our number one priority. We know how important it is to take all of these steps, especially here in Florida where harmful bacteria can thrive in water. Setting up a professional pool cleaning at the start of the season will ensure that your pool is safe to swim.
