Check Your Safety Cover to Make Sure It’s Always Properly Fitted

Having clean, clear water in the Spring makes the life of a pool owner much, much easier. One key element in doing so is having a properly fitted safety cover. Quite honestly, in my opinion winter covers just don’t get the job done.

Follow your typical winter chemical program and about a month before you plan to open use a couple of gallons of liquid shock and then a gallon of algaecide one week prior to your opening. If you follow these instructions you shouldn’t any work besides giving the pool a quick vacuum.

Pay Attention To The Weather

My tip for ensuring a clean clear pool in the spring is to pay attention to the weather, if the fall has been more mild and warmer then it is a good idea to check the pool and add more chlorine and algaecide just ahead of the colder season.

In some areas where they experience heavy rains in the fall and mesh covers are in place much of the winterizing chemicals added around labor day may have been diluted out. Checking in the deep freeze areas  just before the first big freeze hits and charging up the chemicals then can help ensure the water makes it through to spring start up without an excessive algae bloom.

Use a Enzyme Chemicals to Break Down Non-Living Organic Contamination

While there is not a widely known technique to help a winterized pool while its pump and filter system are shut down for the off season, there is one industry trick you should consider.

Using an enzyme product during the off season (even poured through a mesh cover when the water is not frozen) will help to break down non-living organic contamination that will inevitably make its way into your pool this winter. Some of this contamination includes bird droppings, pollen, or even bather contaminants leftover from your swimming pool season.

An off season enzyme will help prevent the waterline ring that can occur through the winter, which would normally require a lot of scrubbing in the spring. The use of an off season enzyme also allows for a faster turnaround time when you go to open your pool as the weather heats up. The product we recommend for this trick is Pool Magic by Natural Chemistry. It works hard, so you don’t have to!

Keep Your Above Ground Winter Cover Free of Debris

Unfortunately, the responsibilities of pool ownership does not end when swimming season ends! But to make your life easier when you re-open your pool in the spring, one of the things you have to do when the pool is closed and covered is keep the cover reasonably free of debris.

If leaves, sticks and other junk accumulate throughout the winter, you can end up with a nasty stew of stagnant water, which is mess to remove and often some of it ends up in the pool.

Using an air pillow connected to the cover in the center of the pool not only protects your pool from snow and ice damage, it also disperses water and debris to the sides of the pool making cleaning it off easy! You want to keep some water on the cover to help stabilize the cover in the wind, but you don’t want any debris.

Keep An Eye On Your Above Ground Winter Cover All Winter

Periodically check your cover cable to make sure that it is tight. If the cable becomes loose, the cover might start to slip into the pool.

Check your air pillow to make sure that it still has air in it. If you see it starting to go flat, get another one and slip it under the cover and blow it up.

Check the water level in the pool every month. A slow leak in the liner could cause you to lose a lot of water from the pool. If you notice the water level dropping, simply refill with a hose and keep it as high as possible to prevent damage to the cover, liner and walls. If you notice part of the cover falling into the pool, pull it up and properly reset it right away to prevent damage.

Protect The Water and Open Early

We refrigerate food to minimize degradation from microorganisms that will grow on food and make us sick. In many ways, the winter is like nature’s refrigerator for our swimming pools and spas. As temperatures drop, so does reproduction rates for microorganisms. Just like most food tastes better when warmed, people tend to enjoy swimming pools when the water is warmed (“Polar Bear Club” members please disregard this generality).

If the goal is to have a clean and clear pool in the spring, we should consider a few things when taking care of the pool in the off-season.

First, it helps to use a “winterizing product” in the water that has some biocidal properties to slow or prevent microorganism growth. The principles we follow in the summer also apply to the winter. If you can maintain the proper pH and a disinfectant at all times, pool care becomes easier.

Pool Care Tips

Taking care of your pool doesn’t end when you put the cover on. It’s important to continue caring for your pool during the off-season (fall, winter, and early spring) to ensure a successful and clean opening.

Add a Mid-Winter Algaecide

Use an algaecide or algaestat (preventative) and particularly one that stays in the water for a length of time.

On the last day of operation, add this to the water and run the pump for 24 hours to fully circulate. Then shut down the circulation system for the winter.

Check Your System to Prevent Freezing

As winter approaches and you plan to close the pool, remember to check your pipes and motorized parts. Drain the water from the pump, pool heater and filter.

As the temperatures begin to freeze, any excess water in these parts can freeze. If water freezes in these pipes, they can crack. Which can cost serious money in the long run.

You also want to drain the water 4-6 inches below the pool skimmer. Winter is also a good time to clean out the shed and discard all of the pool chemicals you used that season. You never want to save chemicals for the following year.

Spring is a great time to start to trim back the trees, shrubs and other foliage that has grown this winter. Trim the trees first to avoid puncturing holes into your winter cover.

Remember you must completely remove any water and debris that has accumulated on top of your pool cover. You can vacuum it off with a shop vac or use a sump pump.

Keep Your Pool Cover Clean All Winter Long

Backyard pool owners absolutely should have a loop-lock type cover for their pool. A dirty but safely covered pool beats a sparkling clean but uncovered pool any time. There simply is no better insurance for keeping toddlers and wildlife out of the pool.

If possible, keep the water level where it is supposed to be and the pumps running.

Add Chlorine to Your Pool to Ensure a Clean Opening

We recommend a few things if you have a safety cover on your pool, in Michigan or the Midwest:

  • In the fall, make sure to add chlorine and algaecide to your pool for over the winter. Don’t add too much chlorine though, if the chlorine level is too high over the winter, you can bleach the liner)
  • As soon as the water thaws in the spring, pop open a corner of the cover and add liquid chlorine to the pool (1-2 gal. for an average in-ground pool). You can do this yourself, or hire your service professional to do this for you.
  • When your pool is opened, vac on waste to help remove the debris from the bottom of the pool. If you try to vac the sediment from the bottom of the pool and run it through the filter system, you may find that the sediment is so fine that it goes right through your filter.
  • If you do find that your pool is what we commonly refer to as pea soup green in the spring, add bunches of liquid chlorine, allow your filter to do it’s work, and monitor the progress. Some customers call asking why the pool isn’t clear an hour after our service crew has been there. Turning a pool from pea soup to clear isn’t magic, and sometimes there is a time delay in progress. Be patient, and let us know if you don’t see progress in several hours. Repeated doses of chlorine and algaecide may be in order, and your pool may benefit from an extra vacuum session.

Pool Maintenance

Most pools require the same maintenance schedule, and as long as a pool owner completes the regular projects required of maintenance such as chemical care and cleaning, it’s easy to keep a pool in clear condition all summer long. There are a number of “unusual” additional activities you can employ to save you time, effort, and money in the long run resulting in an even cleaner pool. Check out these unique pool care tips and see if they inspire any other out of the box ideas.

  1. Buy some baking soda

Stores that sell pool cleaner will usually offer something called an “Alkalinity Increaser,” which is a simple option for maintaining the pH levels in a pool. Purchasing some inexpensive baking soda from the store accomplishes the same goal yet does for much less money. An Internet search will tell you how much baking soda you will need for a pool your size.

  1. Toss in a tennis ball

Suntan lotion and sun block often end up in the pool after they’re applied to a swimmer, and these substances can make the pool dirty quite quickly. Throwing a standard tennis ball into the pool to float for a while will suck up all those extra oils and chemicals that don’t belong in the pool. It’s fine to leave the tennis ball floating in the pool at all times.

  1. Toe the tile line

Residue, dirt, and contaminants form over time and stick along the water line and tile area. Cleaning this area on a weekly basis should reduce the rate at which the pool gets cloudy and dirty since the residue on the tile doesn’t get washed into the pool. Weekly cleaning of this area also reduces calcium buildup. It’s also a good idea to clean the cement or walkways around the pool area to reduce the transference of dirt and grime into the water.

  1. Keep dogs out

Dogs often love to jump in after their owners and play around in the pool, but chlorine isn’t good for canine companions. Not only will the pool irritate Fido’s skin, but the pool will get dirtier and hairier faster. Keeping up with dog hair in the filters may become a full time job in the summer with dogs in the pool. If the family just can’t stand to let the dog wait out the fun on the sidelines, the chlorine levels need to be kept below 3.0 PPM for safety.

  1. Keep a cool pool

Pools cost energy to run and maintain, and keeping a pool above 82 degrees may offer a homeowner a much higher electricity bill. Instead of keeping the temperature so high, it’s less expensive to keep a solar cover on the water. There are also options for solar-powered pool heaters, which will also save energy.

  1. Track water usage with a bucket

Although environmental factors such as humidity and temperature will impact the rate at which the pool loses water, the average water loss shouldn’t be much more than a quarter of an inch per day. Measuring water loss is easiest by placing a weighted bucket on the stairs and marking the water level on the side of the bucket. Big drops in water levels might signal a leak in the pool.

Using these easy and unique pool maintenance tips allows for a pool owner to have a cleaner pool each summer, which requires less maintenance and time spent pouring chemicals into the water. A clean and clear pool also offers a much more enjoyable swimming experience for the family. A well-maintained, regularly serviced pool will save you money in the long run.

Pool Maintenance Tips

Keeping your pool sparkling clean doesn’t have to be as cumbersome as you might think. All pools are different, and so are their maintenance needs.

Skimming the pool’s surface by hand every few days is one of the fastest and easiest ways to keep your pool clean. Floating debris will eventually sink, becoming harder to remove. Use a long-handled net called a hand skimmer or leaf skimmer to remove leaves, bugs and other unwanted items. Skimming significantly increases the efficiency of the pool’s circulation system and lowers the amount of chlorine you’ll need to add to your pool.

A pool should be vacuumed every week to keep water clear and reduce the amount of chemicals you need to add to it. There are many types of pool vacuums. If you have a manual design, work it back and forth all over the surface of the pool like you would if vacuuming carpet. It’s good form to slightly overlap each stroke. Check the filter each time you vacuum, and clean it if necessary.

There are three kinds of pool filters: cartridge, sand and diatomaceous earth. While there are different maintenance procedures for each type, all require periodic cleaning depending on the type of filter and how often a pool is used. Cleaning the filter more often than recommended can actually hinder the filtration process.

Pool heaters typically require the least maintenance of all pool equipment. Gas heaters can work fine without being serviced for a couple years, and electric ones can last even longer. Consult your manufacturer’s manual for specific care instructions. Sometimes, calcium scales build up inside the tubes of a heater and restrict flow, preventing the water from heating adequately.

A lot of water will be lost throughout the swimming season largely because of evaporation and normal wear and tear, such as swimming, splashing and exiting the pool. When you remove debris with your skimmer throughout the week, that’s also a good time to check the water level.

Pool water should be tested regularly to make sure it’s clean and healthy. The pH scale is a measurement of acidity or alkalinity that runs from 0 to 14. A reading between 7.2 and 7.8 is ideal; this range is safe for swimmers and helps sanitizers work at top efficiency.

Organic contaminants like ammonia or nitrogen build up in a pool over time. Massive amounts of such contaminants can interact with a pool’s chlorine to form chloramines, which give off that potent chlorine smell that many people associate with pools. To get rid of this harsh odor, it’s necessary to superchlorinate — or shock — pool water back to normal chlorine levels. Sometimes it’s difficult to determine if low water levels are due to evaporation or a leak. You can discover leaks in your pool by conducting a simple bucket test.

Swimming Pool staff

Lifeguards Job Description:

A lifeguard is responsible for assisting in swimmers’ safety and well being in swimming environments such as public pools and beaches.  Lifeguards hold a physical job that requires the ability to swim and perform rescues for individuals in distress.  Proper knowledge of AED, CPR and similar life-saving techniques is needed; proper first aid skills are mandatory, as is lifeguard certification. The lifeguard’s environment is predominantly outdoors with the exception of indoor swimming pools.  Coworkers are typically fellow lifeguards; aside from coworkers, lifeguards participate in substantial social interaction with beach- and pool goers.  Their hours vary depending on their facility’s hours of operation and available shifts.

A lifeguard must ensure that all beach-or pool goers are abiding by the rules.  Lifeguards must also be knowledgeable about – and able to share – information on current water conditions.  They must be responsive to any emergencies that may arise, such as someone in need of first aid or a potential drowning victim.  Additionally, they look out for unsafe conditions in the water, such as the presence of dangerous objects.

A lifeguard must renew their certification each time it expires.  They are also expected to remain in sufficient physical shape to perform their duties.  Good interpersonal skills and the ability to interact well with pool- and beach goers are needed as well.  Lifeguard salary is mostly based on what the job can pay and very little to do with experience.

Lifeguard Tasks

o             Notify the pool, spa, and sauna maintenance operator to ensure regulations are maintained.

o             Respond to emergency situations in the water or surrounding areas.

o             Administer first aid and contact emergency medical personnel in case of serious injury.

o             Maintain a safe swimming environment and enforce all policies, procedures and regulations.
