Investing in a new concrete swimming pool promises endless hours of enjoyment and cherished memories for your family and friends. But pools aren’t all rest and relaxation; they take a lot of work to keep in pristine condition. As your trusted provider of concrete pools in Auckland, we have compiled a comprehensive pool maintenance guide to make your upkeep hassle-free. Discover our favourite concrete pool maintenance tips.
Remove Debris & Regularly Brush
Vacuum Your Pool
If you own a robot pool cleaner, you’re in luck; it can easily take care of the cleaning process. In fact, we believe that a robotic cleaner is well worth the hefty investment, as they are an excellent and efficient way to assist with the ongoing maintenance of your swimming pool. We suggest choosing a robotic cleaner that can climb walls, steps, and ledges, as well as clean the waterline of your pool.
Empty & Clean Your Skimmer Box
It’s common for twigs, palm tree fruit, leaves, grass, and bugs to end up in your pool. You can remove these unwanted elements from the water’s surface through the skimmer box, which acts as your pool’s first line of filtration. Keeping the skimmer box clean is crucial as it allows your main filtration system to function efficiently.
Balance Your Pool Water
Maintaining good water quality is crucial for the upkeep of your pool. We recommend having your water professionally tested every two weeks in the beginning to ensure that the chemicals, including the pH and chlorine levels, are well-balanced. Establishing a relationship with your local pool shop and its knowledgeable team is a good idea. The experts can provide guidance and ongoing support for your pool’s chemical balance needs. They are always willing to help and provide valuable advice.
Inspect Your Filtration System
We recommend checking your filtration equipment for leaks every six months. If you aren’t confident in doing this yourself, your local pool shop should be able to arrange for someone to help you.
