Pool Maintenance Tips for the Rainy Season , Kihei, Hawaii

If you have a pool on your property, you are well aware of how important it is to keep it in top shape throughout the year. Pool Pro in Kihei, HI, is a full-service swimming pool, construction, and maintenance company. Based in Maui County, they offer high quality contracting services for pool owners living in the area. From design and construction to the maintenance and provision of pool supplies, Pool Pro is able to meet all your needs.

At Pool Pro, they know that taking a swim on a hot day is pure bliss, but what happens when the rains come? Below are ways in which rain water can affect your pool and maintenance tips.

Algae Growth: Lots of debris and algae spores are washed into your pool from the air and other surfaces. These increase the growth of algae and other micro-organisms that can cause infections and illnesses.

Chlorine Content: During rainy days, impurities introduced into the pool reacts with the chlorine in the water. This reduces the “Free Available Chlorine” levels in your pool and affects the rate bacteria and other harmful organisms are killed.

PH Levels: Rainwater also affects a pool by making the pH levels fluctuate, altering the chemistry of the water.

Here are steps to deal with the issues listed above:

Water Analysis: Test chlorine and pH levels constantly. Routine chlorination after every rainfall will help kill harmful bacteria and re-balance the water.

Filtration: Constant filtering will also help to clean out the pool. Pool filters must also be cleaned to avoid reintroduction of bacteria.

Thorough Pool Cleaning: Brush tiles to remove harmful bacteria and organisms that might have settled on these surfaces. For serious algae infestation, consider an intense algaecide treatment.
