With summer upon us, it is likely that your commercial pool will be seeing increased use in the coming weeks. However, the last thing that you want is for your pool to get a reputation for being unkempt and/or dirty. This makes it critical that you stay on top of maintenance throughout the summer so that your pool is ready for guests at all times. Here is a look at a few maintenance tips that will help to keep your commercial pool in pristine shape all summer long.
Create a Maintenance Schedule
It is likely that your schedule gets hectic during the summer, and it can be easy to forget to complete pool maintenance or to not remember what pool maintenance needs to be done. One of the best ways to stay on top of things is to keep of checklist of what needs to be done on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis during the summer. Write down a list of basic pool maintenance such as general cleaning and skimming, testing the water, checking the pool equipment, and treating the water, and create a schedule for when each task needs to be done. This will ensure that whoever is working on the pool on any given day will know exactly what they need to do.
Replace Tubing Regularly
An easy way to ensure that your facility’s pool is a safe and clean environment for guests is to check its tubing frequently. The tubes that feed into your pumps as well as other essential tubing can become brittle with time, and they can be prone to cracking. It is then critical that you check this tubing regularly and replace it as needed, as this can help to save you money on future repairs.
Stay on Top of Filter and Pump Maintenance
Proper circulation and filtration of your pool’s water is critical in order to ensure a clean and safe environment for swimmers. If your pool’s pump or filter is not functioning properly, your pool can quickly become dirty, and other problems may soon follow. It is then important that you perform regular maintenance and repairs on these components. This includes replacing worn gaskets and seals, cleaning out the strainer, and replacing the filter as necessary.
Consider Enlisting Professional Help
Of course, maintaining a commercial pool can be overwhelming during the summer, and you may not be sure where to start. If this is the case, you should consider enlisting professional help. A pool service can ensure that your pool is in perfect condition all summer long.
