In the last year, the sales of outdoor living products has exploded. That holds true for above ground pools as well!
This is why we brought in our new Intex above ground pools. If you're thinking about buying a new pool, but you're worried about maintenance, this is the article for you.
It's easy to keep your new Intex pool clean, and we're going to show you how!
Put Your Pool in the Right Spot
How clean your pool stays depends heavily on where you put it.
Why? Put it under some trees, and you'll always have leaves in your pool.
You want to put your pool in an open area in your backyard. While landscaping and trees are beautiful, you want some space around your pool to keep leaves and debris out.
Check Your pH Level
As with any swimming pool, you want to check your pH level regularly.
What is the pH? This measure the acidity of your pool water. You want to watch your levels so you ensure your pool is disinfected and still healthy for your skin.
So, how do you know what level your pool should be at? Generally it should be between 7.2 and 7.6.
How do you test it? You bring us a water sample, and we'll run it through our FREE Alex water test system. You'll get a free computerized printout telling you if you need to add chemicals.
Cover Your Pool
An easy way to keep your Intex pool clean is to keep your pool cover on it when you aren't using it.
Not only will your cover keep leaves out, but it will keep pollen at a minimum. A cover also keeps out unwanted bugs, animals, and water fowl.
Measure Your Chlorine
All pools require chlorine, and you'll generally use chlorine tablets.
You don't want to indiscriminately put them in the pool, though. There is a correct amount. If you use too much, it's bad for your health.
Always measure your chlorine carefully. If you aren't sure how much to add, please ask us. We are here to help!
Clean Your Pool
Do clean your pool weekly during the swimming pool season.
If your Intex above ground pool is large, consider an automatic cleaner.
Additionally, if your pool has a filter, you want to clean it/change it periodically. Please ask us how to keep your new pool clean!
