- As pools and spas are being used more frequently in the summer, they need more care and attention to ensure proper sanitation and chemical balance.
- During the winter, pool service providers such as GL Pools refrain from using certain chemicals, including chlorine tablets, due to their high cyanuric acid content. An overabundance of this chemical can upset the pool’s chemical balance and lead to the need for draining and refilling. However, as summer approaches, pool care shifts to accommodate the warmer weather and increased usage, and we begin to utilize more chemicals to maintain proper hygiene and cleanliness.
- Pump speeds and run times should be increased to ensure an acceptable turnover rate (a minimum of two turnovers every 24 hours is ideal).
- As temperatures rise in the summer, it’s important to power on solar heating systems to maintain a comfortable water temperature in the pool.
- Install your annual algaecide. For clients with Jandy Fusion systems (inground mineral sanitizing systems), GL Pool’s pool cleaning service professionals will replace Fusion mineral pods annually, while Blueray XL (a copper, silver, and zinc water modifier) is used for others.
- During the cooler months, evaporation rates may be low. However, as temperatures rise in the summer, your pool may require more frequent water addition. To maintain proper water levels, your swimming pool cleaning service can adjust the autofill or fill timer accordingly. If your pool does not have one of these systems in place, GL Pools will inform you when it’s time to add water. If you’re interested in installing an autofill or fill timer, GL Pools can help with the installation process.
- The pool must be brushed more often, especially on the side that receives the most sunlight, including grottos, swim-up bars, and the like.
- Filter and salt cell cleaning are critical, with GL Pools following a quarterly schedule.
- Spa spillovers should be programmed, or the spa should have a “bypass”, allowing freshwater into the spa.
- Clients on GL Pool’s “Seasonal” plan currently receiving one full cleaning a month should expect detailed weekly cleanings from May through October.
