5 SUMMER POOL CARE TIPS
Pool and spa specialist Swimart has some top tips to keep your pool sparkling clean and hygienic all summer.
Excessive heat leads to water evaporation and more swimmers using the pool to cool down – all of which puts extra demand on chlorine. This can affect pool chemistry, which means pool owners need to keep a close check on the water during the peak swimming season.
Beware of blooming algae
The humidity, heat and long hours of sunshine means potential issues with pool water – not least being algae, which thrives in the heat.
The best defence against algae is chlorine. With ongoing hot weather, pools don’t get the chance to cool down overnight, so the chlorine demand remains high. Correct pH levels within the range of 7.2 to 7.6 make the pool comfortable to swim in. If pH levels are incorrect, it can affect the efficiency of the chlorine in the pool.
Here are Swimart’s top tips to keep your pool in top condition during the hot months:
