Pool Care Tasks to Complete Between Cleanings

Clear Debris Out of the Pool

This is one of the easiest tasks you can do yourself to keep your pool clean in between pool cleaning services and it should take no more than five to 10 minutes of your time. Forgotten pool toys tend to get stuck in skimmers and they soak up chlorine, which can affect the chemical balance in your pool. Lawn debris can cause phosphate levels to rise, increasing the odds of algae growth. Clearing toys, using an automatic pool sweep, and manually skimming your pool on a regular basis will help keep your pool looking and functioning its best.

Keep an Eye on Water Levels

Scottsdale is hot and dry, and that means that pools tend to lose water to evaporation quicker than in any other part of the country. This makes it necessary to keep an eye on the water level in your pool. Ideally, water levels should be between one third and one half way up the pool skimmer opening. Water that is too high can cause impact the skimmer’s efficiency and effectiveness, and water that is too low can introduce air into the system which ultimately can burn out your filter pump motor. If necessary, add water to your pool to bring it up to the proper level between pool cleaning services.

Maintain the Areas Around Your Pool

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it is very important to keep the area surrounding your pool clean and free of debris. This is a simple, proactive task that saves skimming time and makes keeping your pool clean between visits easier. If you notice any type of lawn debris or waste in the immediate area of your swimming pool, you want to pick it up before it has the opportunity to blow into your pool. Likewise, if you have trees and shrubs near your pool that drop leaves on a regular basis, try to keep them neatly pruned back and empty your skimmer baskets on a daily basis.

Inspect Pool Equipment

Our technicians will keep your pool equipment in tip-top shape as part of the pool cleaning services we provide. However, in between visits, you should keep an eye on things to identify any potential problems as quickly as possible. Check the filter and motor to ensure that it is working properly. If something looks or sounds like there is a problem, contact your pool care company right away. Likewise, be sure to check wiring for the pool equipment to ensure that it is in good condition. Pests often chew on wires and these components are susceptible to wear and tear over time.
