These pool tips will allow your to really enjoy your pool. And while pool maintenance isn't as fun as, say, a cannonball off the diving board, it does help in the long run.

A bit of regular TLC is all it takes for you to avoid having to deal with most big pool problems.

Tweak the pH. Neutral pH is 7, and you want your swimming pool to read somewhere just above that—slightly alkaline but not higher than about 7.6.

Easy Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips & Hints

A bit of regular TLC is all it takes for you to avoid having to deal with most big pool problems.

Check out these five swimming pool maintenance tips that will help you keep your pool clean and safe throughout the swimming season.

Tweak the pH

This is the ideal range for chlorine to work. If your pool pH is too alkaline, add a pool-safe acid such as hydrochloric acid; if it's too acidic (below 7), try adding soda ash.

Sunset sanitation

While it makes a great day for swimming, sunshine also makes chlorine dissipate faster, so add your sanitizer in the evening for maximum efficiency.

Cover up

One of the simplest things you can do to maintain your pool is buy a swimming pool cover and use it. Covering your pool anytime it is not in use can be a good safety precaution, keep out yard and other debris that can dirty the pool or clog the filter, and reduce the daytime evaporation of chemicals that keep your pool sterilized (as with swimming pool chlorine above) and pH-balanced for great swimming pool care.

Don't forget your filter

You might be surprised by the kind of gunk your swimming pool filter can accumulate over time—especially oil and grease. Use a pool-filter-safe degreaser to keep your filter in top-notch operation.

Just to clarify

Clarifiers help to keep your pool water from getting cloudy. A clarifying agent causes small particles in the pool to glom on to each other so that they become large enough for removal by vacuuming or by the filtration system.

If you find that maintaining your pool by yourself is too time-consuming or requires too much effort, you can always leave the most labor-intensive duties to the experts.

If your pool is heated, then prior to the swimming season—or annually if you use your pool year-round—you can have your pool heater checked by pool specialists or by a heating and cooling company.

A pool company can also provide other services, including a professional cleaning that makes it easier for you to continue to maintain a healthy pool environment.

Some really good swimming pool maintenance tips to help you to have the best water quality and pool water chemistry.
