Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips
For a carefree swimming season, learn about the 5 essentials and call The POOL DEPOT any time you need assistance or expert advice. Pool care can be simple when you have a plan for routine maintenance and use the right products.
Pool water must be circulated for maximum sanitizer effectiveness. The more your water is in motion, the harder it is for bacteria and algae to take hold. Constant motion means that debris is more likely to be captured by your filter as well. The best time to circulate the water is during the daylight hours, for 10 hours or more.
The filter is one of your most important pieces of equipment. It removes both visible debris and most microscopic matter. Generally, DE and Sand filters should be backwashed (the removal of material trapped on or in the filter media) when the water pressure in the filter reaches 8 to 10 pounds above normal. (Check manufacturer’s guidelines.) Because backwashing does not remove oils and deeply imbedded debris, every filter needs to be chemically cleaned regularly. The POOL DEPOT can help you establish a filter maintenance program.
Some swimming pools have areas with little or no circulation. This is where algae and bacteria can begin to grow. At least once a week, the walls and floor should be brushed and vacuumed to remove debris that the filter misses. Brushing is a must, even if you use an automatic pool cleaner or retain a weekly service. Our weekly pool maintenance is able to keep your pool clean and healthy. Please contact us to schedule a time.
Every pool has characteristics that must be regularly measured and adjusted. Most important are the pH and the level of active sanitizer. By testing these two factors at regular intervals, you’ll understand how bather load, weather and product application affect the water. Testing your pool water at least once per week will help you maintain proper water balance and greatly reduce the potential for problems.
Proper Water Maintenance
The last step in a total pool maintenance program is applying the right products to your pool water at the right time. This will help you:
Provide a sanitary swimming environment.
Balance the water to protect the equipment and pool surfaces. Unbalanced water can permanently damage both.
Provide brilliant, sparkling water that’s inviting.
Enjoy your pool!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
We have utilized the services of Pool Depot since 2007. We have NEVER had any kind of service issue. They arrive each week at the same time without fail. I never think about the pool or the maintenance of the equipment. Everything just works and if it's big, the call and discuss the problem plus my options and pricing. I highly recommend the services of The Pool Depot!!!!Casey Rowe
I called The Pool Depot to service my mother's pool in Houston. I live 2 hours away so I am not able to personally help my mother as often as I like. The Pool Depot sent an excellent rep over to repair my mother's pool. He was so informative that my mother knew more about the repair after he left. We appreciate your fast response and courteous attitude. Thank you.Ruth Woods
