The summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors and take a swim, which can be great if you have a pool. It can also be a lot of work to maintain a pool, but there are some things that you can do to make maintenance easier. You can also do improvements to your pool to get more enjoyment, such as adding a solar heater, upgrading the filtration or adding more deck space. If you want to be able to enjoy your pool more this summer, here are some improvements that may help:
1. Upgrading Your Filtration System To Reduce Maintenance
If you want to reduce the maintenance of your pool, having a better filtration system can help. Filters that use sand or salt can help remove more dirt and debris from your pool. They can also help to reduce the amount of chemicals needed to ensure that you have good water quality. Sand filters will be the most affordable solution, while salt filters and DE filters will cost more but require less chemical treatments.
2. Making Access To Pipe Fittings Easier For Repairs
Accessing the pipe fittings to your pool may be difficult if you have hard plumbing for your pool. To make any needed repairs easier, you may want to have pipe connections, and areas where things like skimmers and outlets are located, encased in a type of box or access hole to make repairs and maintenance easier.
3. Installing A Solar Pool Heater To Get More Enjoyment Out Of Your Pool
Solar panels can be a great way to get more enjoyment out of your pool. If you want to extend the amount of time that you will be able to enjoy your pool, a solar heater can be a great investment. These panels circulate water from your pool outlet to be heated by the sun. If you have roof or fence space that gets a lot of sun, this can be a cost-effective way to heat your pool.
4. Adding Current Generators To Get The Exercise Solution You Need
If you have a limited amount of space for your pool, it may not give you enough space for swimming laps and exercise. A good solution to get a lap pool with a limited amount of space is a current generator. These are systems to produce a current to provide resistance, so you will be able to swim laps or exercise in place with the current.
These are some improvements that may help you get more enjoyment out of your pool this year.
