Maintaining a pool is a major hygiene requirement that you must not take lightly. Read on to get some general tips on how to go about cleaning and maintaining your swimming pool. The level of maintenance needs to be matched with the level of the pool usage. However, as the usage of a swimming pool is not really something that you can accurately predict the maintenance should be on a regular basis. You must essentially begin by testing the swimming pool water in the evening. At the same time it ids important to check the water prior to adding any kind of chemicals to the water in the swimming pool. Once you have finished this testing you must also carry out a test of the water in the morning. This should be done before any person uses the pool. In this manner you will know for sure that the quality of the water is good for the day?s activities. A 7.5 measure of PH level is probably the best as that is known to be the ideal PH level for water of a swimming pool.

Another thing to look out for is poor water quality. By and large the water in a swimming pool must be clear and blue. If it is not completely blue and clear water then it should be a cause for concern and you must take a complete check of the water. It will be possible that there is algae growth giving rise to certain cloudiness of the water. Another important factor in pool maintenance is paying attention to the weather. Various weather conditions can have serious effects on the quality of your pool water and correspondingly on its level of hygiene. Presence of strong sun is responsible for reduction in chlorine levels in the pool water. Also the rainy season could bring about the onset of parasites in the pool. What you can do is check the water at the point of return flow of water to the swimming pool. It is important to check and add any chemicals in order to make sure that there occurs an effective mixing of the chemicals with the filtered water. Apart from the water itself it is essential that there is a regular cleaning of pool surfaces to avoid build up of grime or pollutants. The paving slabs that surround the pool also need regular cleaning.
