One of the best features of fiberglass pools is that they require less maintenance than other types. At the same time, to make your fiberglass pool last, ensure its beauty, and make it safe for swimmers, you’ll still have to put in a little effort to maintain it.
At Backyard Paradise and Restoration, we recommend all pool owners purchase a pool cover to save themselves some effort where maintenance is concerned. If you notice any bugs, leaves, or anything else floating around in your pool water, swipe it up using a net and a telescopic pole. We also suggest purchasing a vacuum to get dirt off the pool bottom and making sure your pool water has the proper levels of:
- Free chlorine
- Calcium hardness
- Cyanuric acid
- Total alkalinity
Additionally, you need to keep your water level above the skimmer at all times. This is essential because if your pool lacks enough water, there won’t be enough pressure to balance the upward pressure of any groundwater. If you feel like you really need to drain your pool, consult with us before you get started with this project.
Above all, fiberglass pools are an excellent investment in your backyard oasis, not only because maintenance is minimal, but also because they’re a great source of relaxation and enjoyment. We want to tell you more about fiberglass pools and everything they offer, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
