Home Living : October 5th 2010
4 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, October 5, 2010 Here's how to make a splash » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING You're now ready to go outdoors and enjoy the sun and the swimming pool. Summer is a lot more fun with a pool at home. But any proud owner would tell you how crucial pool maintenance is. Maintenance of a pool is a fairly simple thing, but it is routine that must be followed religiously if you want to get the utmost benefits. Swimming Pool & Spa Association of NSW Limited (SPASA) has some great tips to keep your pool in top condition. Here's how to ensure your pool is ready to dive into on the first hot day of the upcoming summer season. In spring Thoroughly clean the pool and vacuum the walls and floor; Check the pump is working properly and book a full pool equipment service by a licensed pool and spa technician; Check or replace fittings and check for leaks, then test chlorine and pH levels every two weeks; Empty skimmer basket whenever full; Occasionally check the water level is halfway up the skimmer box opening; Occasionally check pressure gauge on filter is not indicating backwash; and Turn the pool lights on for at least 30 minutes a week to prevent build-up of moisture within the light and wiring. In summer Run filtration system 6-8 hours a day; Regularly check sanitiser levels, ideally on a daily basis; Check the pH every two days, and Total Alkalinity (TA) weekly; Check and clean skimmer basket, and hair and lint pot basket, weekly; Have your pool water checked at your local pool shop every two weeks; Thoroughly backwash your sand or DE filter or remove and clean the cartridge from your cartridge filter, depending on pool use; and Maintain water level at least halfway up to the skimmer box opening.
