Spring Awakening: Preparing for the Swim Season

As the cold recedes and the days grow longer, spring marks the beginning of the pool season. This is the time to awaken your pool from its winter slumber and prepare it for the bustling months ahead.

Spring Maintenance Tips:

  • Opening Your Pool: Remove the cover, clean it thoroughly, and store it away. Balance the water chemistry, check for leaks or damage, and ensure all equipment is clean and functioning correctly.
  • Equipment Check: Inspect pumps, heaters, filters, and other pool equipment for any wear or damage that may have occurred during the winter.
  • Professional Inspection: Consider a professional inspection from Big Becks Pools & Pavers to identify and address any potential issues before they become problems.

Summer Vigilance: Peak Season Maintenance

Summer is when your pool sees the most action, which means more maintenance to keep the water crystal clear and inviting.

Summer Maintenance Tips:

  • Regular Cleaning: Skim the pool daily, vacuum weekly, and brush the walls and floor regularly to prevent algae growth.
  • Chemical Balance: Frequent testing and adjustment of water chemistry are vital during the summer months due to increased use and higher temperatures.
  • Filter Maintenance: Clean and backwash your pool’s filter regularly to ensure efficient operation, especially during periods of heavy use.

Fall Preparation: Getting Ready for Cooler Weather

As summer winds down, preparing your pool for the cooler months helps protect it from damage and makes next season’s opening smoother.

Fall Maintenance Tips:

  • Leaf and Debris Removal: Keep the pool and surrounding area free from leaves and debris, which can lead to algae growth and clog filters.
  • Reduced Chemical Needs: As temperatures drop and pool use decreases, adjust your chemical treatment accordingly.
  • Professional Winterization: Big Becks Pools & Pavers offers expert winterization services, ensuring your pool is properly protected against freezing temperatures and ready for an easy spring opening.

Winter Watchfulness: Off-Season Care

Even when your pool is closed for the winter, occasional checks are essential to ensure the cover remains secure and equipment is safeguarded against the elements.

Winter Maintenance Tips:

  • Cover Inspection: Regularly check the pool cover for any damage or displacement caused by weather conditions.
  • Water Level Monitoring: Keep an eye on the water level under the cover, as significant changes can indicate a leak or other issue.
  • Freeze Protection: Ensure your freeze protection system is operational, and consider running the pump during extremely cold temperatures to prevent freezing.
