3 Great Tips And Tricks To Avoid Pool Maintenance

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

There is nothing like having your own swimming pool. I can stay in the water for hours. I love the beach, and water parks are fun, but there is nothing quite like the privacy and intimacy of a private swimming pool. The second thing that comes to anyone’s mind when they think about having their own swimming pool, unless you want to opt out and and have a pool cleaner take care of this for you, is the work involved. I have a rain water swimming pool in a rural and tropical area, which potentially means a great deal of algae, and so if anyone knows how to avoid hours of work, then it is me. Read these handy tips for maintaining your swimming pool and it will be a breeze…

1. Get a pool cover.

Your pool will probably not used for at least half of the year even if you live in a more tropical environment. Covering your pool for half of the year will save your hours of time and money when you do go to use it. A cover has drastic effects on your pool maintenance. Firstly it will stop debris and a huge source of algae. Secondly it will limit the sunlight the stagnant water is exposed to and reducing the growth of algae. Thirdly and just as importantly it will reduce the amount of evaporation – and if you live like I do, not on the water mains and only off the land, then you will really understand the importance of water conservation. I made my pool out of a used truck tarpaulin which I got for practically nothing at a local dump. Cut to size with the addition of fasteners it was ready to go.
