Our Top 4 DIY Pool Tips:
During these times, the DIY approach is looking more and more attractive for home maintenance efforts, and that applies to pools too. But there are some important things to consider when it comes to handling your pool equipment yourself. Here’s what you should be aware of before you tackle DIY pool care:
#1: Regular Water Testing
Water testing can determine whether there are issues with the chlorinator, sanitising system and pH of the pool. Regular water testing can be performed by a qualified pool professional on site and is free at Poolwerx – however, if you want to DIY your own water testing, you will need test strips and a test kit that tests for pH and chlorine levels. When performing a water test yourself, remember to test away from any pool filters or skimmer boxes.
#3: Regular Pool Cleaning
Cleaning your pool is an important factor of pool care and must be performed regularly to ensure your pool is safe to swim in. Proper pool cleaning, via vacuuming, brushing in conjunction with the use of pool chemicals ensures that the pool is always swim-ready, prevents algae and bacteria build-up and may even prolong the life of your pool equipment. If you’re short on time, check out our range of Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaners.
#2: Adding The Correct Chemicals
It’s important to take care when handling and storing pool chemicals, that’s why we recommend using our qualified pool technicians. If you’re a tried and true DIY’er, remember to always use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, eyewear, and protective clothing whenever adding chemicals to your pool.
#4: Regular Equipment Checks
We recommend checking your equipment at least once a year to make sure everything is working and running the way it should be. Equipment such as pool pumps should be well maintained as an effective pump will circulate the pool and plays an important part in filtering & sanitising pool water. As part of our summer-ready poolside servicing, we offer equipment checks – book yours today!
