Spring & Summer Pool Maintenance Tips

Maintaining your pool year-round is vital to maintaining the health of your pool for many years to come. Proper maintenance can help prevent corrosion, by keeping the water chemistry balanced, and extending the life of equipment.


Follow this simple guide to make sure you get the most out of your pool this Spring and Summer.


Test the Water:

  • Have a professional test the mineral content of your water, total alkalinity, pH, and chlorine levels
  • If you have interior calcium or mineral build up, you will need interior pool cleaning services
  • Pro tip: your local pool supply store can test the water for you and advise you on any chemical imbalance!



  • Shock the water with chlorine to kill bacteria.
  • Do this in the evening as the sun will make it less effective.
  • Dilute chemicals first by filling a bucket with water and add in the granular shock gradually.
  • Mix well and pour into the pool with the pump running
  • Pro tip: Shock the pool after heavy activity or extensive pool use to keep your pool’s PH in check!


Ongoing Care:

  • Maintain a clean filter
  • Maintain proper water levels
  • Vacuum pool each week
  • Test chemicals 1-2 times a week
  • Have a professional test the water each month
  • Run the pump during the day to maintain water circulation and keep the pool sanitized


Safety First:

  • Only add chemicals when pool is running
  • Open chemicals outdoors and away from face
  • Add chemicals gradually
  • Carefully handle leftover chemicals
