Few things provide more pleasure than diving into a crystal clear pool after a long, hot day. However pools can be a big source of frustration and expense if they are not taken care of properly. Cloudy water and algae are sure signs that your pool needs a maintenance review.

As a pool owner you have a responsibility to those using your pool that it is clean and safe to swim in. Pool care shouldn't be difficult or time consuming. With regular maintenance and advice from a professional, you'll have a pristine aquatic playground in no time.

In a nutshell, periodically check your pool's chemical balance to ensure it is comfortable and safe to swim in. Controlling bacteria and algae and removing any debris from the water will help keep it safe and clear. Regularly filtering water reduces debris and makes sure the chemicals are in circulation.

Several factors affect the condition of your pool water - in particular the weather and the amount of use. Hot sunny weather can turn your pool green overnight if the water chemical balance is not correct. If your pool is heated then extra care must be taken to keep the chemical balance correct.

Pools naturally attract debris such as leaves, flowers, insects and dust as well as hair and skin. All these cause the water to cloud and encourage bacteria and algae growth. If bacteria and algae are left untreated it will multiply, your pool becoming unhealthy and unsightly. The only way we can control these elements is to sanitize and filtrate daily- especially during the warmer months.

Professionals can advise on the right chemical balance for your type and size of pool and staff at most pool shops are knowledgeable sources who'll happily test a sample of your pool water free of charge. There are many mobile pool companies who will put your pool on a maintenance plan.

Keeping your pool clean and sparkling ensures you have a water playground ready at all times.
