Spring Cleaning Your Swimming Pool
How do you work out when Spring has arrived and it’s time for Spring cleaning your Swimming Pool? Is it when the calendar tells you? Is it when news stories tell you? Or is it simply noticing things around you that show that Spring is here? With me, it’s the latter. There are a number of signs that indicate to me when spring is here.
Here’s my top 5.
1) I’m using the heatpump less and the power bill has started to shrink – thank goodness!
2) I don’t have the hot water turned up so high in the shower.
3) My dog and both cats are malting. I’m vacuuming almost every day to pick up all the hair!
4) The grass is growing again.
5) Flowers are appearing.
When I see most of these signs, then I know that Spring has arrived. Number 4 is the sure indicator that you need to be preparing your pool for spring.
If the grass is growing, so is your swimming pool!
Now is the time to take the initiative and get your pool sorted out before the water temperature warms up sufficiently for your pool to go green. If you have a cover on your pool and haven’t peaked under it for some time, I suggest you have a look as soon as possible.
The first thing to do now is to bring a water sample into the store for a free water analysis. We will give you a comprehensive report outlining what you need to do to get your water in balance. Don’t forget to do a stocktake of the chemicals you have left over from last year before you come in with your water sample.
While I say, I don’t let calendars dictate the start of seasons, that isn’t entirely true. I have to admit when I see 1st September appear I get this feeling that the season has ‘officially’ begun. I’m an impatient person…I always look forward to the next season. I’m glad winter is coming to an end and I’m definitely looking forward to the next 3 months of spring because it’s followed up with summer which means SWIMMING!
