Allergy Season Preparation for Swimming Pools
It is only the beginning of April, yet already most of the United States is hitting high levels on the tree pollen forecast. Oak is the main culprit, leaving a green covering on everything outside, along with the male catkins that look like green worms. When pollen season hits, it is time to make sure your pool is ready for spring and the associated pollen that comes with it. Here are some spring pool cleaning tips to ensure your pool is ready for the coming months.
- Annual filter service or replacement
This is a great time to have your filters serviced to get ready for the summer swim season. Have your sand, DE or cartridge pool filters serviced or replaced to ensure that they are performing at the highest level.
- Inspect baskets
Your baskets need to be working at an optimal level for the spring and summer months. Baskets should be cleaned regularly during the heavy pollen season, replacing any that are broken or not functioning properly.
- Equipment Inspection
All your pool equipment should be inspected and serviced before heading into late spring and summer. Inspect and service your pump lid and filter O-rings, drain covers, valve function, motor, and pressure gauge. Plus, make sure all safety equipment such as non-shock cards are working and in good condition.
