Baby, it’s cold outside around your pool, but even though it’s winter we want to talk to you about keeping your pool looking its best. Some of these pointers are obvious, but you’d be surprised what people can overlook because they get busy with other things which demand their attention.
In the winter, there may be some weeks when you never visit the backyard, and the pool lays fallow. It’s easy to catch a roof rat or tree branch in the pool and not notice for quite a while if you don’t ever look at the pool. There might be a slow leak which affects the water level. So, make a habit of laying eyes on your pool at least weekly.
If there is a single thing that will keep your pool looking its excellent best, that would be pool maintenance. Leaves can stain your pool and consume algaecide, so brush it weekly at the very least. If you don’t have time, you can hire a fabulous pool service company to take care of it for you. For just a few dollars, you can be worry-free as far as your pool care is concerned. But, if you do maintenance on your own, please know how important it is to the process of keeping your pool looking great.
Maintenance of pool equipment is another essential component to keep your pool looking great, so don’t forget to take care of the hardware as well as the water quality.
When a pool is in disrepair, it can lead to not only functional problems but cosmetic problems, as well. Keeping your pool in good repair is another essential function which, when neglected, will make a pool look unloved. This is true of the deck, the plaster, and even the lights.
There comes a time in the life of a pool when upgrades become a necessary evil. While pumps wear out, technology evolves, and by the time you have a repair, it may turn into an upgrade by the time it's fixed because who doesn’t want a Smart pool pump or monitor? By making upgrades as things wear out, you can keep your pool relatively current. If you decide to sell your home, the pool will be in good shape. If you’re living in your forever home, you won’t be embarrassed by the dated look of your pool. Either way, upgrades are a win.
While having a beautiful pool may seem less important in the winter time, it’s no less essential to prevent trouble when the weather cools. With a little effort and the right tools, you can keep your pool beautiful all year long!
