Monitoring your inground pool before any issues occur is much easier than trying to correct problems after they have happened. Simple visual checks for leaks, water clarity, cleaning skimmer baskets, and ensuring the cleaning systems are working properly can help to limit any potential issues.
Keeping on top of cleaning around the tile line weekly, and as we know it can get windy in Brisbane so regularly fishing out any leaves is a necessity particularly during the autumn months.
It is a good idea to skim the surface of the pool on a daily basis removing any debris and preventing it from going into the filter.
Keeping a check on your pool chemical levels on a weekly basis is a must. Regularly checking the levels means you can ensure the balance is correct.
As a guide during the hot summer Brisbane months check levels around twice a week. While during winter, only once a week may suffice. Testing kits can be purchased to help you with this. If you spot any odours check these straight away, and ensure filters are cleaned. The water level should be checked and if necessary topped up to the required height, around the centre of the pool skimmer.
If it drops too low this can damage the pump, too high and it will not operate effectively.
If you do notice your in-ground pool in Brisbane is becoming cloudy then its best to seek professional advice.
