Keep your pool clean! It doesn’t matter how fancy the filter is, or how high the tech is behind it, a pool without clean water is a dry pool. Keep your pool clean using the tips listed below.
Winter is the perfect time to think about spring cleaning your pool. The season’s chillier temperatures mean that cleaning your pool is a cinch. All you need to do is turn on the water and wait for the chlorine to do the work.
But, what if you don’t want to do that? What if you don’t like the taste of chlorine or the chemicals that are needed to keep your pool clean? Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to keep your pool clean this winter without using chemicals.
It’s just as important to keep your pool clean as it is to use it. Here are some ways that you can keep your pool clean this winter!
Keep The Pool Clean With A Hose
For those who enjoy cleaning their pools with a hose, winter is the perfect time to get creative. The harder you press on the hose, the more water it runs off. This is the perfect solution for keeping the recirculation pool clean, but what about the rest of the pool?
Most pools have fittings that accept a standard garden hose. The constant flow of water from this hose can keep your pool clean for days on end. This option is great for busy pool owners who want to get their pool cleaning in without loosening up the pool.
For pools that don’t require a lot of chlorine, a simple lock-in device will do the trick. Some pools have a chlorinator that can be locked in place when the pool is not in use, which means that it will only release the needed amount of chlorine when the pool is used.
This is ideal for pools with little maintenance.
Use A Pool Filter
For pools with deeper pools or those that require more chlorine, a pool filter will do the trick. Some pool filters come with built-in carbon filters that absorb the chemicals from the water, helping to keep the pool clean.
These filters are inexpensive and easy to replace, making them a good investment.
Use An Air Pump
If you have a deeper Pool that needs more oxygen to keep the water clean, a swimmer’s lung or air pump can be used to vent air from the pool. These pumps are often handheld and can be placed in the pool when it’s not in use to keep it oxygenated and remove any harmful contaminants that might be in the water.
Have A Self-Cleaning Pool Cover
For pools with automatic coverings, winter is the perfect time to get creative. The self-cleaning technology works when water is frozen, so you can simply place the cover in the pool and let it do its thing. This will keep your pool clean and your cover bills down.
And, as with everything in life, there is an easier way.
