3 Technical Pool Maintenance Musts to Improve Safety, Kihei, Hawaii

Pools provide a wonderful place to relax, cool off, and enjoy the company of loved ones. In order to facilitate these activities, it’s important to perform proper pool maintenance. Along with scooping out debris, you must do some more technical servicing as well. Below, Pool Pro in Kihei, HI, shares three maintenance musts to improve the safety of your pool.

3 Technical Pool Maintenance Tasks to Improve Safety

1. Chlorine Monitoring

When a pool is properly chlorinated, the chemical serves as a disinfectant to sanitize the water. Without appropriate pool maintenance, chlorine can become overpowering and irritate the eyes and skin of swimmers, so it’s necessary to check chlorine levels regularly. Also, always store chlorine as listed on the container, as it requires excellent ventilation and specific temperatures to maintain its integrity.

2. Suction Assessment

To keep your pool clean, you may use a suction system that brings water through a filtration system before returning it to the main pool. It’s important that your drain is set at a gentle suction speed so that no one who accidentally comes into contact with the drain will be injured. Use a drain cover to further protect swimmers from suction mishaps.

3. Electrical Maintenance

People don’t often think of pools as having electricity, but many feature electric systems like lighting and jets. Ensure any in-pool appliances and other electrical items near the pool do not have exposed wires, as this could lead to electrocution if they come into contact with the water. Always use ground fault circuit interrupter outlets outdoors so they will trip and turn off power if exposed to water.

Pool maintenance is easy when you make it a part of your routine. Perform weekly water testing, remove debris daily, and fully empty the pool at least once a year to promote a healthy pool for your loved ones to enjoy.
