Some other hints to keeping your pool or spa clean are:
- Keep ducks and dogs out of your pool- This will adversely affect your water balance and quality.
- Keep the Pool or Spa and surrounding areas clean - Having garden beds and landscaped areas around a pool or spa can certainly add visual appeal, but keeping these areas tidy will aid in the maintenance of your pool water balance and a clean healthy pool.
Keep your filtration system clean - You can maximize the efficiency of your cleaning system and prolong the life of your pump and filter by regularly cleaning the pool's filtration system. It is a simple process: empty and clean the pump, the skimmer baskets and all filter screens.
Regularly check the pressure gauge. If you notice a decrease in water circulation or a higher than normal pressure is evident, backwash the filter.
