Summer means time to get back to the great outdoors with backyard cookouts and entertaining. If you own a swimming pool, it also means creating fun backyard memories with friends and family in the water.
BioGuard, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of pool and spa products, knows that no one wants to host a barbecue next to anything less than clear, sparkling water. Following a few essentials of pool maintenance can help ensure a more enjoyable swimming and backyard entertaining season.
Make waves. Constant water movement helps prevent bacteria and algae from growing and ensures that the pool sanitizer is evenly distributed throughout the entire pool. Circulating pool water during the day for at least 12 hours helps the filter catch debris.
Check that filter. Backwash filters periodically and chemically clean filters a minimum of twice a season.
Scrub-a-dub. Brush and vacuum pool walls once a week, even if you use an automatic pool cleaner or hire a service.
Test the waters. Every pool needs to be tested for the correct pH and sanitizer levels every week. Have a thorough water analysis performed by a trained BioGuard dealer every month.
Keep that water treatment going. The right water treatment plan will both maintain pool equipment and keep the water inviting. For instance, the SilkGuard Technology in BioGuard's Silk sanitizer line helps prevent corrosion and metal staining, protecting pool equipment and investment for longer life.
BioGuard dealers offer pool care products and systems that make opening and maintaining the pool a snap. Consult your pool professional for expert advice all year round.
