Read all the tips on how to check, refresh and clean your pool water. Moreover, we give you the tip that prevents all this!
Checking pool water
Start by checking your pool water. You do this by testing the quality of the pool water. This way you can measure the pH-value and the chlorine level and ensure that these get the right balance. Also, check the alkalinity in your pool, this maintains the pH and ensures that chlorine does its job. Use a good tester that can check all three values.
How often should you change the water in your pool?
In the case of an above ground pool, you should refresh the pool water on average once a year. You do this before the swimming season starts, in spring. You do not need to refresh the water often, but it is important to keep the water clean. This way you prevent algae and other bacteria.
When the pool water does not have the right water values, you do not have to change the pool water immediately. With all kinds of powders and cleaners, you can easily make sure that the water is fresh and of good quality again. Also, you can clean the water by removing large debris with a scoop net and filter small debris with a filter pump. This way you save litres of water and you freshen the pool water yourself using the correct water values.
