NORCROSS, GA, April 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Winter is on its way out and you are ready to get your pool ready for the warmer weather. There are many steps to making sure that you have a safe and happy pool season. It is best to hire Atlanta pool maintenance experts from Pinnacle Pools to get your pool in top shape. They have the skills and knowledge to identify any problems and fix them.
Keeping the Pool Area Maintained
It is important all year round that you inspect the area around your pool. Make sure that gates work properly and that your pool cover is safely attached. See to it that small children cannot gain access to an area that contains an open or covered pool. More than 375 children die each year in senseless pool accidents. Make sure that the area is kept clear of debris and make sure that all life-saving equipment is properly placed within reach and in good condition. In addition, make sure that any pool chemicals are kept safely locked away.
Cleaning Your Pool
Before you use your pool, clean it thoroughly. There may be build-up of leaves in the bottom if you didn't properly cover the pool during the off-season, and you may also find algae and dirt build-up. The filtration system will need to be cleaned out and checked out to make sure that will work properly to help keep your pool clean. Check for any leaks in your filtration system. Your pool professional can go over your filtration equipment and make sure that it is functioning properly.
Testing the Water
The water in your pool must be tested before you add any chemicals. It is important that you make sure you have the correct chemical balance in your pool water; it can be time-consuming to get the water ready for spring. When the water has been sitting for several months, it can become stagnant and contain algae. It is a good idea to make time for pool inspections in Atlanta.
Adding the Chemicals
Knowing which chemicals to use and when is one of the most important aspects of getting your pool ready. You may want to do a shock treatment to the water to kill any bacteria and algae. Once the pool is shocked and the chlorine level is above 5.0, the pool's water should be evaluated to see if further chemical treatment is needed. If you do not thoroughly understand how to use your pool chemicals, hire an Atlanta pool repair professional to take care of this for you. Improperly adding chemicals can be dangerous and cause you more problems with your pool.
Think Fun and Safety
Check all the handrails, ladders, slides and diving boards to see if there is anything that is damaged, loose or in need of repair. Pull out your pool toys and make sure that they are clean and damage free. Look at the area surrounding your pool. Does it need to be pressure cleaned, or is it in a grassy area? Do you need to trim around the pool area, pick up any fallen branches and check for objects that could be stepped on and cause injury?
Now it's time for a great season of splashing, relaxing and family fun. "Proper pool care is very important in the warm summer months. If your pool maintenance is ignored, your family is at risk, and it can become an unsightly problem that can even damage your expensive pool equipment," states Greg Stephens, Owner of Pinnacle Pools.
