DIY Pool Care: What You Can Do Between Professional Services

Swimming pools offer endless hours of fun and relaxation, but they also require regular maintenance to stay clean, safe, and enjoyable. While professional pool services are crucial for in-depth care, there's a lot you can do on your own in between weekly visits to keep your pool in tip-top shape. In this blog post, we'll explore our Top 3 DIY pool care tips for Roseville residents, offering pro-level advice for maintaining pools between professional visits.

DIY Pool Care Tip1: Skim and Brush Regularly

Invest in a good-quality pool net, brush & pole. Skim the pool's surface when needed to remove debris such as leaves, insects, and twigs. Brush the steps and hard-to-reach areas for your pool cleaner to prevent dirt buildup (a great place for algae to hide & grow). 

DIY Pool Care Tip 2: Clean and Empty Baskets 

Clean out the skimmer and pool cleaner baskets. Clogged baskets can affect water circulation and strain the pump, leading to costly repairs. This is especially helpful during high winds and rain storms when swimming pools can be inundated with organic debris and trash. 

DIY Pool Care Tip 3: Monitor Water Level

Keep an eye on your pool's water level. If it falls below the recommended level, use a hose to top it up. Proper water levels are essential for the pool's skimmer and circulation system to function optimally. Our recommendation is to keep it 2 inches above the bottom of the skimmer port. 


Honorable Mention DIY Pool Care Tip: Maintain the Pool Deck

A clean and well-maintained pool deck not only enhances the pool's aesthetics but also prevents debris from entering the water. Regularly sweep and pick up around your pool to keep additional debris such as grass clippings and trash out.

By following these DIY Pool Care Tips, Roseville homeowners can enjoy a clean and inviting swimming pool year-round. While these tasks help keep your pool in great condition, remember that regular professional pool services address more complex maintenance needs and ensure your pool remains a source of relaxation and enjoyment. 

Happy swimming!
