DIY Pool Maintenance

One of the main reasons that pool owners take on pool maintenance themselves is to save money. Maybe this was your objective too. Before you start cleaning your pool though, there are some things that you should be aware of. 


The first thing is the quality of the cleaning. You need to ask yourself if you know what you are doing. There is a lot that goes into pool maintenance, especially if you use your pool often. Taking care of your pool includes more than just skimming the water. You need to make sure the chemicals in the water are balanced and that the water and pool itself are clean. For more tips on cleaning your pool yourself, visit our blog page to find helpful articles.


Even though you are saving money by taking care of your own pool maintenance, you will still need to buy all of the needed pool equipment and products yourself. Some of the different things you will need are:


  • Pool Skimmer
  • Cleaning Brush
  • Pool Vacuum
  • Water Testing Kit
  • Filter Cleaners
  • And More



Lastly, before you get started, consider how much time it will take to maintain your pool. Is this time and effort that you want to put in? Not only do pools need to be cleaned, but they often require weekly or bi-weekly cleanings. As the summer wears on, consider whether cleaning your pool yourself is worth it to you. If you do not want to put in this type of effort, consider turning to the professionals.
