Question: Now that I am a pool owner, what type of maintenance is needed?
Sanitize, Shock, and Prevent Algae As Part of Your Plan
You need to do several things to maintain a beautiful pool. But it's not terribly time-consuming if you perform these tasks on a regular basis.
Sanitize the Water
Add Guardex stabilized chlorinating products to sanitize your pool water and kill bacteria 24 hours a day. Stabilized chlorinating products are protected from removal by sunlight and are a great way to keep your pool clean and clear. They’re available in a variety of convenient forms including sticks, tablets, and granules. Keep your free chlorine level at 1.0 to 3.0 ppm at all times.
Shocking is another important step because it removes undesirable compounds like suntan lotion, perspiration, make-up, body oil, and urine from the pool water. For super clear water, add Guardex Crystal Clear Multi-Shock once a week or as needed. More frequent shocking is needed after rain storms, heavy bather load, or exceptionally hot weather.
An ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure when it comes to algae. Applying Guardex Algae Terminator or Algae Control once a week should eliminate outbreaks of these unwanted microscopic plants. Preventing algae before it starts is another great reason for regular maintenance.
