League City & Clear Lake Pool Service & Maintenance Tips

Anyone who has owned a pool can tell you just how much of a learning curve there is to perfect the art of keeping and maintaining gorgeous pool water 365 days a year.  Here are some of the most popular pool maintenance mistakes that negatively affect the quality and health of your pool.  

Adding the Pool Chemicals at the Wrong Time

There is a time and place for everything, including when you should be adding chemicals to your pool water.  Placing chemicals in the water in the morning or during the day, particularly during the spring and summer months, can severely decrease their effectiveness – especially when it comes to chlorine.  Whenever possible, add chemicals to your pool after the heat of the day has passed and the sun has gone down.  This will help to reduce evaporation and help ensure the stability of those chemicals.

Not Running the Pump for Long Enough

Most pool owners have completely forgotten about the importance of regular and proper circulation of their pool water for the overall health of their pools.  For the most part, pool owners need to run their pump for longer periods of time to make sure the water is continuing to circulate properly, and that the water is flowing at a rate to properly maintain the chemical balance of the water (which will help stop the growth of bacteria and algae).

Underestimating the Effect of a Crack

A small crack in the wall of the pool – not a big deal, right?  Especially if it’s above the waterline?  WRONG!  Even the tiniest of hairline cracks can have a major negative impact on your pool.  Water can and will seep into cracks, which will have a horrible and expensive impact on the foundation of your pool.
