Is Your Pool Ready for Summer?

As warm weather approaches, homeowners in Bakersfield, CA who have swimming pools begin to think about opening their swimming pool for countless days of summer fun. During a hot sunny day, nothing is better than going outside in your backyard to take a dip in the pool. However, there are several steps to take to ensure that your pool will be ready and fit for swimming. To help you out, here are tips and suggestions to ensure that your pool is prepared, clean, and safe for the summer season.

What Do I Do First?

The first step you must take is to remove all kinds of dirt and weather buildup from fall and winter seasons. Before removing the pool cover, make sure that there is no water sitting there. Once the cover is removed, check the level of the water, which should be in the middle of the opening of the skimmer. This measurement will guarantee that there will be proper circulation. Add water if there is not enough and while doing so, check the handrails, diving boards, ladders, and slides. Every bolt should be in place and properly screwed.

Checking the Equipment and Water

Everything should be in good working condition, which means you should check the hoses, filters, and pumps. It is advised that you turn on the circulation system for at least 8 hours. Once this is finished, it is now time to inspect the water from the alkalinity to the hardness to the pH level. You probably already have a pH kit so it will be easier to collect a sample and test the water. You can add chemicals to balance the water.

For the rest of the summer season, you should be prepared to do maintenance work. Of course, you can always call a Bakersfield Property Management to help you maintain the cleanliness and the safety of your pool.
