5 Ways to Prepare Your Swimming Pool for Summer

One of the absolute best things about summer is being able to put on your swimsuit and spend a few hours hanging out by the swimming pool. It’s even more awesome when that pool happens to be one that is in your own backyard. But before you can get inside of it, it’s important that you make sure to properly prepare your pool for the summer weather. That way, it will be clean and safe for you as well as your family member and guests to use.

If you’d like a few tips on the ways that you can prepare your swimming pool for the summer season, we have five fairly easy ways below. Check these out:

Blow off the dead leaves and debris from around the pool’s cover. We’re pretty sure that once you stopped swimming last summer that you put a cover over your pool. Well over the fall and winter months, you were bound to have some dead leaves and debris accumulate on top of the pool cover and also around it. That’s why the first thing that you should do is remove all that from the pool area. Our recommendation is that you use a leaf blower in order to do so in the least amount of time.

Remove the pool cover. Once all of the leaves, dirt and debris have been blown off, it’s then time to remove the pool cover. If you have enough space in your backyard, spray the cover so that it lays completely flat and use your garden hose at its highest water pressure to spray the cover. Then allow the cover to air dry. Pour a bit of talcum powder on the cover (to prevent it from sticking together), fold it and then store the cover in a cool, dry place.

Check the pool’s parts. The next thing that you need to do is check to make sure that the pool’s parts are in good working condition. This would include checking the pool’s hoses, pumps and also its filters. Also make sure to test the pool’s circulation system by turning it on and allowing it to run anywhere between 8-12 hours.

Also check the water. Whether you had your pool built or you purchased it from a company likeĀ Royal Swimming Pools, something else that you need to do is check the water that is inside of the pool. This means that you should first inspect the swimming pool’s water level (typically, it needs to be around the middle of the skimmer). You also need to check the water’s pH levels. This will show you the water’s total alkalinity as well as how hard it might be due to calcium that may be in it. You can get a pH level testing kit at stores like Target or on websites like Pool Geek.

Make sure you have other pool supplies on hand. Once your swimming pool is in its proper condition, then make sure that you have other pool supplies like life jackets, a First Aid Kit and a lock to go on the gate around the pool. That way, you can be confident that your pool is clean and also a safe area for your family and friends to be around. Happy summer swimming!
