Get Your Pool Ready For Summer

Get Your Pool Ready for Summer

With average temperatures set to hit the 30° to 36° mark now is the time to get your pool ready for the summer season! Fortunately, your best defence against the upcoming hot summer days and warm, balmy evenings of Western Australia can be right in your backyard.

There’s no better way to escape the heat of Perth’s summer than by taking a dip in your cool, refreshing backyard swimming pool? Too right!

That said, if you want to make the most out of your pool this summer, you need to make sure your pool is ‘ready’, ready to beat the heat. Here’s some info to help you understand how to prepare your pool for summer use. If you still have questions or require any further information, you can contact us or pop in and visit one of our pool shops in Perth.

The first thing you need to do to get your pool in shape for the summer months is to give the whole pool area a good clean. Use the appropriate pool cleaning chemicals and equipment and get it cleaned. Should you need new pool chemicals, cleaning equipment or even an automatic pool cleaner then call us or visit our pool shops. Don’t forget to give the pool furniture a wipe or two while you are at it.

When cleaning your pool, you may also want to give it a good look over. Inspect the pools surface and check for any cracks, chips or broken parts. If you find any, have them repaired.

Over time, dirt, debris or even algae can build up in your pool and some times that build up when left for long periods can cause staining. These unsightly stains may require specialised stain removal chemicals and a little elbow grease to get rid of them.  

Your pool equipment (e.g., pumps, filters, heaters, robotic cleaners, pool covers, saltwater chlorinators, chemical feeders, etc.) will also need a thorough cleaning and a trial run before you use them. If you are cleaning the equipment yourself, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines carefully. If you are not sure, give our pool experts a call. Our professional pool equipment inspection and repair services will prevent much more expensive repairs or replacements in the future. 

Last on our list of “things to do to make your pool summer-ready” is adjusting the pool’s chlorine and water balance levels. You can buy a test kit for the purpose and test your pool’s chlorine and water balance levels yourself. Or an even better option would be to take a sample of your pool water to our pool shop in Perth, located in Canning Vale and Southern River and have the water tested for you.  We have specialised equipment to test your pool water levels. 

Now all you need to do is send out the invitations for your first pool party for the season — and get ready for the hot weather!
