Tip #1: Start a Skimming Habit

If you aren’t already, regularly skim your pool to clean out floating and submerged debris like leaves, grass clippings, and insects. Whether it’s daily or weekly, it needs to be a regular part of your pool maintenance routine. Skimming benefits the overall health of your pool and can save your filter some work, extending its operational life and condition. Like sweeping your floor, there is great technology out there to make this job easier! Pool vacuums and robots can do much of this cleaning for you.

Tip #2: Don’t Neglect Your Filter Baskets

It’s easy to forget about your pool filters, but we recommend you check on your filter baskets for debris at least weekly during pool season. Filters are designed to catch and remove anything that doesn’t belong in your pool like branches, bugs, and even stray pool toys. Cleaning your filter baskets won’t just keep your pool clean, but you may find a lost pool toy or two!

Tip #3: Strive for Chemical Consistency

Your pool water should be properly balanced to avoid irritating swimmer’s skin and eyes. An imbalanced pool can also create a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. During the summer season, check your pool’s water quality weekly and treat with the proper chemicals as needed. At Mid State Pools & Spas, we offer chemical check kits and all the tools you need to keep your water safe and swimmable.
