Pool Maintenance Steps

Pools are a great source of fun and relaxation for the whole family, if they are clean and ready to use when you want to jump in.  But if they aren't maintained, they can become a big headache instead.  What steps can you take to keep your pool sparkling?

  1. Balance Your Pool - this means getting the right balance of pH, total alkalinity, and calcium hardness.
  2. Chloriate Your Pool - this step removes bacteria and algae
  3. Shock Your Pool - you should do this weekly to get kid of contaminants and keep the water clear
  4. Add Algaecide to Your Pool - if you skip this step, your pool can quickly get overtaken by algae 
  5. Clen Your Pool - skim debris and clean your skimmer baskets

Each of these steps are important for the longterm health of your pool.  But they are time consuming, so if you would like to remove this task from your "to-do" list, call Birchmore Shields Pool & Spa.  We will come to your rescue!
