Swimming Pool Inspection Services gives you tips on keeping your pool in tiptop shape this summer.
Pool Maintenance During Summer Swim Season
Warmer weather and more frequent use can result in dirt, debris, and algae growth in a pool during the summer. Because of this it is important for homeowners to ramp up their pool maintenance routine during the summer by following these tips:
Dry Off and Store Pool Cover
A pool cover that is rolled up when wet and left in the sun can become easily damaged. Algae and moss can grow in warm, wet environments, and a plastic or vinyl cover that’s left to bake in the sun can become brittle and easily end up tearing. Covers should be dried off and stored in a cool, dry place, out of the sun for the duration of the swimming season.
With Memorial Day weekend ahead of us, it’s time to think about opening up your swimming pool that has been closed all winter. Opening an inground or above-ground swimming pool is a process, but if done correctly, your pool will be ready for use this Memorial Day.

Swimming pool covers are extremely important for maintaining a pool and preventing damage from occurring.
Having a properly installed and utilized swimming pool cover will ensure that the pool is protected from the elements and ready to use when uncovered. Here are just a few reasons why a cover is recommended for a well-maintained pool:
Every day that a pool is exposed to the air, evaporation occurs. This results in higher water costs. Additionally, a lower water level can cause damage to the parts of the pool that are exposed to the air. Tile, plaster, and vinyl in a pool should not be exposed to air; doing so can cause them to crack, dry out, and become brittle.
