Advice for the indoor pool maintenance

It is easy to keep your indoor swimming pool in top condition provided you keep these pieces of advice in mind. You can ensure that your pool remains a pleasant and safe place with little cost and effort:
– to avoid green pool color, stir up the water to have debris to rise to the surface where it can be removed
– to avoid ph level to go too high or too low, frequently test the pool’s water using testing strips or sending a sample of your pool water to a pool store that will probably test it for you and tell you which chemicals to use
– to avoid murky or unclear water due to high levels of algae or bacteria, use shock chemicals that will correct this problem
– if your water is cloudy or greenish, you should probably replace or repair your water filter

Also, winter months are a good time to perform routine inspections and repairs:
– Clean or repaint the pool concrete surface by draining it
– Check and replace pool pump and filter if necessary
– Repair any chips or cracks in your deck
– Check diving boards or other moving equipment like ladders or rails for needed repair
– Check connections for possible gas leaks if you have a gas pool heater
