Freshen Your Pool

It's Hometip Tuesday and today’s tip is about keeping your pool sparkling for the summer! 

Establish a weekly routine to clean your pool.  Test the pH level weekly with a pool water test kit. Chemical level guidelines will vary depending on the season and weather but in general, pH levels should remain between 7.2 and 8 for the cleanest, safest water.

To get rid of any contaminants and reduce cloudy water, you should shock the pool weekly —preferably at night, so that the sun doesn't destroy your chemical mixture.   How much shock you use depends on the size of your pool. A general rule of thumb is to add 1 pound of pool shock for every 10,000 gallons of water but refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for property usage. 

By taking a few steps this month, you can keep your water clear for all your pool parties.  I hope you found this tip useful!  Take care!
