Greetings, pool owners! Welcome to T&T Pools, where we believe in making pool ownership a joyous and hassle-free experience. If you’re new to the world of pools, fear not! We’ve put together a beginner’s guide to pool maintenance, ensuring your pool remains a sparkling sanctuary for fun and relaxation.

Understand Your Pool’s Chemistry

Getting the chemistry right is crucial for a clean and safe pool. Regularly test your water for pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels. Aim for a pH between 7.2 and 7.8 and chlorine levels between 1-3 ppm. If you’re unsure, our team at T&T Pools is always here to help you understand and adjust your pool’s chemistry.

Skimming and Scrubbing: A Daily Routine

Skim leaves and debris off the water surface daily. Also, scrub the sides of your pool regularly to prevent algae buildup. Remember, a little effort goes a long way in keeping your pool inviting.

Keep Your Filter System in Check

Your pool’s filter system is like its kidneys, filtering out impurities. Clean your filter regularly and ensure it’s running efficiently. If you encounter any issues, our dependable T&T Pools team is just a call away.

Maintain Consistent Water Levels

Water levels can fluctuate with usage and weather conditions. Keep an eye on it and adjust as needed. Too low or too high water levels can cause problems with your pool’s filtration system.

Schedule Professional Inspections

Even with regular maintenance, it’s wise to schedule professional inspections. Our experienced T&T Pools team can spot potential issues early, saving you time and money in the long run.

Safety First

Always prioritize safety. Ensure your pool area is secure, especially if you have children or pets. Regularly check safety equipment like pool covers, fences, and alarms to ensure they’re in good working order.

Enjoy Your Pool!

Most importantly, enjoy your pool! Regular maintenance not only keeps your pool safe and clean but also enhances your overall pool experience.
