We want to keep our pools always clean and fresh so here are some tips for your Pool Maintenance this Autumn from My Pool Guy!
Although summer is over for another year, we hope you’re still getting some use out of your pool depending on where you live! As the cooler weather approaches, don’t make the mistake of completely forgetting about your pool as it can end up costing you more money!
Summertime Pools have prepared a few tips for getting your pool into shape before winter.
Pool maintenance varies throughout the year and through each season. By sticking to a regular pool maintenance program, either by doing it yourself or utilising a licensed pool maintenance agent, you’ll save money, time and protect one of your most valuable assets.
Here are some pool maintenance tips for autumn:
Clean your pool more regularly than in summer to remove autumn leaves and other debris. Make sure you skim your pool for debris and clean out the strainer baskets and make sure you get to the debris early before it sinks to the bottom.
Be sure to empty your skimmer box and pump basket regularly at this time of year.
Cover your pool – use your pool cover more often to prevent leaves and debris damaging your pool skimmer.
Reduce your filtration hours to 2-3 hours a day, or in salt pools, reduce the chlorine output as the days get cooler.
Give your swimming pool the winter treatment by using a winter treatment kit. This treatment includes some water testing to ensure the chemicals are balanced.
With some simple pool maintenance through autumn and winter, you can almost be guaranteed of a fresh clean pool by the time the warm weather is here again.
It’s a good idea to be in contact with your pool care professionals everytime.
