3 Tips to Keep Your Pool Clean and Healthy in the Off-Season

 

As you probably already know, it’s not swimming season yet. Although it’s technically spring now, it still really doesn’t feel like it, so it’s probably not a good idea to hop in your pool for the time being. In fact, there’s still snow melting on the ground as we’re writing this! That’s definitely not swimming pool weather.

But if you’re anything like us, you’re probably dreaming of hot and sunny days, cold drinks, and clear swimming pools. At Carlton Pools, we’re one of the leading swimming pool companies in Lehigh County, PA, and the surrounding areas. And we’re going to give you three tips for keeping your pool clean and healthy in the off-season. Here they are:

  1. Keep your pool cover clean throughout the off-season – Just because your pool is covered doesn’t mean that you should ignore it for the rest of the fall, winter, and spring. Make sure your cover stays clean throughout the off-season.
  1. Remember to add chlorine – You’ll want to add chlorine to your pool a couple of times over the course of the off-season. Make sure to add chlorine in the fall right after you close the pool, and in the spring after the ice has thawed.
  1. Periodically check the cover to make sure it’s fitted correctly – Another way to keep your pool clean (and make your life easier in the spring) is to periodically check the cover to make sure it’s on correctly. When the pool cover is on right, it keeps out dirt, debris, bugs, and other things that we bet you don’t want to be in your pool.
