How to prepare the pool for the summer season, step by step


Spring is the perfect time for prepping the swimming pool and getting it ready for the summer fun. Just keep the following recommendations in mind at all times:

Check for damage to the pool structure

Pool walls can deteriorate and fracture or crack over time, leading to water seepage. Fortunately, you can avoid this problem by carefully examining the pool shell before the swimming season begins to see if there is any damage that needs fixing.

Check the pH of the pool water

The pH value measures the degree of acidity or basicity of water. Maintaining it at the right level is essential for having clean, transparent pool water. But also to protect your skin and eyes and prolong the life of your swimming pool. Check if the pH is between 7.2 and 7.6. If not, it will be necessary to apply a chemical product to regulate it and obtain the correct values for healthy swimming.

Use anti-algae products to keep the pool water healthy

Anti-algae chemicals, which prevent algae growth, are especially crucial when preparing the swimming pool for the summer. Algae are micro-organisms that reproduce rapidly and can cause fungi and bacteria to proliferate and contaminate the pool water.

Cleaning the pool regularly, maintaining proper pH levels and using an algaecide will prevent micro-organisms from adhering to the walls and keep the pool clean and ready for use, not only in summer but also throughout the rest of the year.
