In Pool Maintenance How To by Platinum Pools

If you own a pool, it does not matter where you live or how often you use it -there are some things you need to do to maintain it properly.  From removing debris to repairing broken tiles, your pool will need some attention!  The question is whether you should maintain your pool or enlist the help of professionals.  We have put together a “cheat sheet” to help you take the best care of your pool. 

DIY Pool Maintenance Tips

While it’s important to have a professional assess and implement a maintenance plan, it’s just as important to take care of your pool whenever and as often as possible.  Consider taking care of the smaller details, such as wiping away the leaves and dirt covering your pool.  Clean the pool tile a few times a year by applying water and baking powder.  Apply enough water to turn into a paste-like consistency, and scrub gently!  In addition, you can apply borates to your pool to improve your pool’s pH levels.  It’s an excellent DIY method that will keep your pool healthy, shiny, and clean! 

Whether your pool is your relaxing oasis, your method of exercise, or the place you enjoy spending time with family or friends, you deserve to have it for years to come.  The best way to do this is by staying on top of your weekly maintenance and keeping your chemicals in balance.  Take care of your pool, and it will give back to you time and time again!
