Everybody loves swimming in a private in ground pool. For fun, for fitness, for family and friend togetherness, a swimming pool can be one of the best investments you can make.

The only thing you’ll have to do is maintain your pool through the summer; or do you?

Everyone knows that owning a pool requires more than just filling it with water and letting it go. Here are some of the things that you’ll need to do to take care of your pool.

Balance. You’ll need to be sure to check the balance of your pool consistently. This includes balancing the pH, alkalinity, and calcium hardness levels. As long as everything is at proper levels, you’ll be fine. If not, it can lead to problems such as scale formation, plaster etching, or skin and eye irritation.

Chlorinate. There are a few options for chlorinating your pool such as tablets, liquid, and granules. You’ll need to discover which type works best for you and your pool. Testing the chlorine levels is very important and you should know what numbers are best for keeping bacteria at bay, or else it can be gross.

Shock. Shocking as it may be, there are still more things you need to do to keep your pool healthy. You’ll need to shock it at least once a week to get rid of algae that can clog filters and make your pool unusable if they get out of control. There are several algaecides out there, so start researching what works for your needs.

Clean. Yes, every single day you must clean the pool. You’ll need to clean the walls and the floor with brushes and vacuums, hose down the pool area after cleaning and before using, and you’ll need to test the water every day. Not to mention skimming out the bugs and creatures that might have fallen in since you last looked.
