Swimming Pools: Keeping Summers Cool, Refreshed and Safe

Up until last year, my family spent every summer at the beach. My spouse and I didn't want to invest in a swimming pool because we thought it'd be expensive and hard to maintain. But after my youngest child developed a skin infection from the beach's sand, we changed our minds. We contacted a pool contractor in our area that offered many different types of pools. We decided to go with an above ground pool because it seemed easier to keep up than an inground pool. Plus, our kids were safe from dangerous germs. If you need a swimming pool for your home, read my blog. I show you how to find the best options for your family and why you should choose them.

Taking Care Of Your Hotel Swimming Pool

If you recently became a hotel owner who has a swimming pool on the property, there are several steps that should be taken daily to ensure the safety and comfort of your guests. Swimming pool maintenance will need to be done each morning before the pool opens for the day so your guests will be able to enjoy it during peak hours. Here are some tips for swimming pool maintenance you can use to make sure guests are happily swimming all season long.

Skimming The Surface

Use a swimming pool skimmer each morning to remove any debris or insects that may be floating around in the water. This will improve the circulation of chlorine throughout the pool and can help you save on the cost of chlorine because you will not need to add as much when refilling. It will improve the look of your pool overall, making the water inviting for guests to jump into.

Cleaning Straining Baskets

There are several straining baskets around the perimeter of your pool that should be cleaned out each morning after you do your skimming routine. Removing the debris from these baskets will also help in keeping your pool chlorinated at a constant level. Take out each basket and rinse it under a hose away from the pool area before inserting back into its proper spot.

Brushing And Vacuuming

The walls and floors of your pool will have a murky buildup if you do not take the time to brush them each day. Long-handled pool brushes will help keep your walls and flooring free of this debris. After you brush the surfaces, use a pool vacuum to suck up any particles that may have lifted off of them. Doing this process will keep guests from sliding along a sludgy surface when getting into the pool.

Adding Chemicals

You will need to check the pH level of your hotel pool each day to make sure it is being maintained at the proper level for the size of the swimming pool. Chemicals can be added to keep the water at a safe level for swimming.

Taking a trip to your local pool store to talk to a professional can give you the information needed to pick the correct chemicals to keep your water clean and safe for guests. Stagger chemical additives throughout the week on different days to avoid the chance of a reaction between them, which could cause reactions on your guests' skin, as well.
