The Winter months in Florida may be too chilly to take a dip in the pool, but it’s a worthwhile investment to keep up on pool maintenance routines. Here are 4 easy ways to keep your Florida pool in tip top shape.
Continue to clean your pool and pool filter regularly. Skim water surface to remove leaves and bugs weekly. Empty debris from traps every few days.
Keep Water Circulating
Set your pool filter to run for a minimum of 4-6 hours. Even in Florida it can get cold. With fluctuating temperatures there is an increased potential for algae blooms to form. Be sure to test your water regularly and add the necessary chemicals. There are many local companies that can maintain your pool at reasonable prices.
Maintain Water Level
Breezy days and less rain will have your water levels fluctuating. As much as an inch can evaporate in a week. Keep a close eye on levels and add water when necessary. Set a timer when you have the hose running to ensure you do not overfill your pool.
Watch the Weather
It doesn’t happen often but if there is a freeze warning in effect, run your pump overnight. Water running through the pipes will prevent any issues from occurring.
Many Floridians have opted to heat their pool for year round enjoyment. These maintenance tips will help you and your family get the most out of your swimming pool all winter long. Enjoy!
