There is nothing routine about pool care and maintenance


Do not believe claims for a "maintenance-free" pool. While pools can surely now be equipped to reduce maintenance requirements and tasks, a pool will always require some care and maintenance. While there are a few variables that constitute overall pool care, the best way to care for your pool is to maintain your the pool. And the best way to maintain your pool is to Heengage in what the industry calls a routine pool maintenance schedule. The industry isn't wrong, but let it be clear that there is nothing routine about a pool maintenance schedule.

Many pool professionals will advise you to “do this daily” or “do that weekly” when they teach about pool maintenance, which almost compels their clients to pick – and stick with – a specific day of the week to do something. The bottom line is that if your pool needs a task completed to maintain its water clarity and cleanliness, then do that task, regardless of when it was last done. In other words, if your pool needs to be vacuumed on a Thursday, do not wait until Sunday to vacuum the pool just because that is the day you arbitrarily chose. We understand that the term routine insinuates consistency, but with pools, the only thing that is consistent is change. Water is volatile in nature, which means it can change – in terms of chemistry or clarity – without notice, so you must engage in a routine maintenance schedule without locking yourself into “doing this daily” or “doing that weekly” throughout the entire pool season. Do it consistently - do it routinely - but but don't always do it the same day each and every week for the entire pool season.

It is important to remember too that the climate (temperature, humidity, sunlight, rain, and wind) here as well as your personal and individualized pool use will play a role in your water chemistry and clarity, therefore, you will need to adjust your routine maintenance schedule to compensate for the current weather conditions and your individualized pool use.

The main point to remember is not to engage in a routine maintenance schedule as dictated by the calendar; rather, engage in a routine maintenance schedule as dictated by the current condition of your pool; and, be able to adjust your schedule when needed.
