Winter means looking after a pool, and most importantly, pool maintenance. When winter comes, your pool needs to be ready to go. A pool maintenance schedule can be as easy as ABC Always check for signs of leaves, ice and debris before you drain the water out.

If you catch this early on, your pool will stay cleaner for longer and you’ll save yourself time and money in the long run.

And, of course, no one really wants to see a swimming pool that looks great except for the people using it. If you’re looking after a pool, then you’ve probably noticed that it takes more than just a good skimmer and scrubber to keep the pool clean. After all, swimming pool maintenance needs regular attention. Make a regular cleaning routine of the pool. Depending on usage, you may need to drain the water out completely once a week, just to clear away any leaves and other debris that’s caught in the pipes.

If you follow these simple pool maintenance rules, you’ll find that the water is clean and you don’t have to do much maintenance when it comes to it.

Proper pool maintenance needs to be a part of your regular routine, or you’ll run into some major problems.
