Everyone loves to jump into a pool to escape the blistering heat of summer sun. When winter rolls around, that same pool doesn’t look quite so appealing. Even though pools are often out of commission for half of a year or more, they still require year-round maintenance to ensure that you can swim again when the summer months roll around again.
It can be hard to find the time or inclination to take care of your pool in cool winter months the idea of swimming in it couldn’t be further from your mind, but this doesn’t mean that it is okay to neglect your regular pool maintenance in Cheltenham, Brighton, Bentleigh, or Caulfield. Although it can be a pain, a chore you have to perform even though you don’t get to reap the benefits for several months, maintaining your pool will have been well worth it when you see the clean water glisten when the warmer months return.
It can seem a little counterintuitive to spend so much time and energy taking care of a pool when it is not in use. The reality is if you do not take good care of your pool it will quickly deteriorate. Many mistake simply throwing a quality cover over their pool as sufficient protection from harsh weather or long term stretches of being out of commission. What many pool owners do not realise is that the quality of water in their pool depends on regular filtration even when covered and out of use. It is important to always have currents in your pool, moving around chlorine and other sanitising chemicals. The PH level of your pool requires monitoring and adjustment if necessary.
If any of these aspects of pool maintenance in Bentleigh, Caulfield, Brighton, or Cheltenham is neglected for too long, the ramifications are considerable. You will notice when you pull back the cover after months without proper care or attention that while the water may not look clean, residue could build up along the walls, or your filters may be clogged or ruined. Without constant proper care, you may need to invest greater time and money in restoring it to its previous condition.
