Swimming Pools Need Love Too: 3 Tips to Good Pool Care, Kihei, Hawaii

As you know, there’s simply no better way to spend time during a hot day than poolside with your family or friends. Whether you use it to keep up an exercise regimen or simply as a way to cool off, your pool adds a little bit of luxury to your home, turning your backyard into your own private paradise. However, according to the pool service and pool maintenance team at Kihei, HI’s  Pool Pro, even if you get regular pool care, there are some steps you should take to keep it pleasant and functional for years to come.

So what can you do to ensure that your pool stays in good shape? Here are three major tips:

  1. Keep it Clean: Regular skimming of floating debris will make sure the water stays clean and pleasant. It’s important to get to it as soon as possible; if leaves, branches, bugs or other detritus are left too long, they’ll sink, making them harder to remove and affecting the pool’s circulation.
  2. Pool Filters: All three of the kinds of pool filters—cartridge, sand and diatomaceous earth—require regular cleaning. Read up on how much cleaning is recommended for the type though, since cleaning too much can also lead to problems.
  3. Maintain Water Levels: When you and your family use the pool, a great deal of water will inevitably be lost, so it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on levels. Very low water levels risk damage to the pump, so if you see that, use a hose to fill it back up. Never let the pool sit empty too long; refill after maintenance and leave a little water in there if you plan on not using it for a while.

Of course, having regular pool maintenance done by professionals is another way that you can ensure the longevity of your system. If you are in Maui, there’s no one better for the job than the folks at Pool Pro. Check out this local business online; or if you need any service, just give them a call at (808) 879-3294.
