Getting your pool summer-ready

Getting your pool summer-ready

The weather is getting nice and that includes sunbathing and water fun!

But when is the right time to get your pool ready for summer? The ideal time is when the ambient temperature rises to around 20°C and the pool water has reached a temperature of 12°C. Depending on where you are, this is already the case.

Depending on where you are, that may already be the case now.

So how do you tackle that?

You can of course call in an expert if you don't have the time or inclination to do it yourself but you can also easily do it yourself with advice from our staff. It is in fact quite simple.

If you have already prepared the pool for winter and this has been done correctly, preparing it for summer is a piece of cake.

First, take off the winter cover or remove the floating dispenser. Rinse the tarp and let it dry before storing it.

If no winter cover was used, there may be leaf debris and other debris floating in the pool and accumulated near the edges and/or bottom. These debris must first be carefully removed. To avoid this, it is recommended to use a winter cover. It already saves you a lot of work!

 When the pool is free of debris, you can turn on the filtration system so that the water starts moving and flowing again. The pool water should flow through the filter at least once, filtering out any debris you weren't able to remove manually. We recommend purging the filter after this to prevent clogging.

After this, you can perform a chemical treatment. This ensures that the water is suitable for swimming. Before performing this chemical treatment it is best to test the pH value of the water. You can do this with test strips or with test tablets/liquids.

The correct pH value for healthy water is between 7.2 and 7.6. If the value is different, first add a pH-minus or pH-plus product until you get a good value.
