Caring for an above-ground pool is as important as caring for an in-ground pool. Here are simple steps to take when caring for your above-ground pool so you can keep your water clean, sparkling and healthy all season long.
1. Run the pump for at least 8 hours a day
Ensures your water is circulating properly.
Makes it more difficult for bacteria and algae to form.
2. Keep your filter clean
Keeps your pool clean by catching and removing debris and other particles.
3. Brush and vacuum pool once a week
This helps reduce the potential of algae growth.
4. Test & balance water regularly
Keeping your pool water balanced ensures swimmer comfort.
Maintain pH levels between 7.2-7.6.
5. Maintain a constant level of chlorine in the pool
Use chlorine tabs to maintain chlorine levels.
Shock pool water weekly for clean, clear water, especially after use or heavy rain.
