Keep Pool Filters And Baskets Clear
In order to have continued optimal and sanitary performance from your pool it is important to keep all the proper pathways clear. This means cleaning out any baskets used to trap debris, hair or other objects that have gathered. The most crucial functional of the pool, when it comes to sanitation, is the filter. Therefore, it is imperative that you keep your filter clear of debris as well. If there is blockage in the filter, it will not function properly and the water will not get filtered. Pretty simple. There are also devices for catching debris near the pool’s pump that must remain clear for full function as well.
The need to keep the filters, baskets and pumps clear is why you often see and are encouraged to have someone scoop out the debris from the pool, not only to avoid swimming in stuff but to prevent blockage of pumps and filters so they may continue to clean the water as intended.
Avoid Stagnant Pool Water
Aside from debris the Texas climate is a perfect place for stagnant water to produce algae and can become a major issue if not addressed. Algae is a very preventable pool maintenance issue but it can creep up on you if not watched. We recommend checking the water levels, making sure your chemicals are in balance and running the pool pump to make sure the water is moving around.
