How to Properly Maintain Your Pool to Prevent Damage
Pools are a great addition to any home. They bring the family together, offer a great way to exercise, and bring your backyard to life. However, you'll need to replace parts of your pool to ensure you fully enjoy it. One part of your pool that you'll eventually have to replace is the swimming pool liner. The swimming pool liner cost isn't astronomical, but there are ways you can keep it down. With some maintenance, the swimming pool liner cost isn't something you'll have to worry about every year. Here are four maintenance tips to prevent damage to your pool and its liner.
1. Clean Your Pool Regularly
Leaf litter and other organic debris can age your swimming pool liner prematurely. If you let the organic debris sit for too long, it'll rot and release chemicals that can damage your liner. At the very least, organic debris will stain your liner. Clean your pool regularly using a skimmer to keep up on debris removal.
2. Vacuum Once a Week
Skimming is fine for daily debris removal, but you'll have to clean your pool deeper once a week as well. It would be best if you vacuumed your pool weekly. Vacuuming can get debris out of the pool that sunk to the bottom and is sitting on your pool liner. Vacuum your pool to get this debris out to prevent damage to your liner.
3. Test Your Pool Water
You must use the right chemicals in your pool. Testing your water is the only way to know if you're using the right pool chemicals. According to Continental Pool Liners, your pool water pH should be between 7.2 and 7.6; if it's not, it can start to corrode your liner. Ensuring your pool chemicals are doing their job can help keep the swimming pool liner cost in check.
4. Don't Forget to Winterize
You should winterize your pool every year. At a minimum, you should have a cover for your pool to protect it from the winter elements. Winterizing your pool ensures it's in good condition and ready to go when you're ready to open it at the beginning of the summer.
