Your pool is only ever going to be as good as the pool supplies you use.
The trouble for many people is that having a pool you can use whenever you want requires maintenance and dedication to care. It can be easy to get excited about getting a pool of your very own, but at some stage, that excitement will wear off and your eagerness to look after it and attention to detail will start to fall away.
A pool is a little bit like a car in that you need to keep it in good condition or it won’t perform the way it should. In some cases, it can even be a hazard.
You are probably on a schedule to have your car serviced at certain intervals and your pool needs to be serviced properly too.
The pleasure of owning a pool is that you have the freedom to enjoy it at any given time. If it isn’t cleaned or repaired when needed, you have a tremendous asset going to waste.
Pool maintenance and cleaning is really a preventative measure and helps you keep the pool safe for use and avoid problems in the future.
If you’re not sure just how important it is to clean and maintain your pool, then just think of any pool that has been ignored or forgotten.
Any clogs or blockages in your pool system can be hard to tackle and repairs can quickly become expensive. Any leaves and other debris that enter your pool and the drain areas. This can all soon build up and if left unattended, often clogs the pool’s drain or filter. A blocked drain can actually damage the motors of the pool and this is a costly repair job.
Without regular maintenance, any pool can suffer from a range of problems such as an oily, thick film that attaches itself to the pool’s walls and other surfaces. There is a real danger of people slipping or falling when they get in and out of the pool, especially on ladders or steps.
With the correct use of quality pool chemicals and the correct balance in the pool water, you can avoid many of the common problems pool owners face.
The most important thing is to keep the water as clean as possible and ensure that your pool filter is always working properly. Stagnant water is the perfect breeding ground for growing algae, bacteria and other organisms.
Of all the things that can go wrong if you don’t have the right pool supplies or chemicals. If your pool is unclean for long enough, dangerous bacteria will be able to propagate and this is when diarrhoea, rashes, and even irritated eyes and lungs can surface.
One of the most common health conditions for someone swimming in pool water that hasn’t been correctly maintained and filtered is the dreaded ‘swimmers ear’. This is when bacteria builds up in the ear and causes an infection.
Sometimes these issues are a result of ignorance on the part of the pool owner rather than simple neglect.
