Reducing Fiberglass Pool Maintenance
Just like owning a car, boat, home, or anything else, there’s always going to be some sort of work involved in maintaining your pool. Keeping a watchful eye and adhering to best practices however, will in fact reduce a fiberglass pool’s upkeep time.
Invest in an Auto Cover
Take a look at where your pool is going to go or where it’s being installed. While looking try to think of all of the surrounding environment and what from it could end up in your pool. Whether its trees dropping leaves, animals around, birds flying overhead, bugs, neighbors cleaning and mowing the lawn causing dust and clippings to enter the air. Purchasing a cover will keep all of this stuff and more out of your pool. That’s way less stress on the pump and pool filter, less work for the automatic pool cleaner, less chemicals, less energy, but most importantly more time available for you to spend on other things.
Invest in a Solar Cover
Solar Covers for swimming pools are designed to heat the pool’s water using the heat given off from the sun. They are a smart and eco-friendly approach to heating the water in your swimming pool by preventing water evaporation of up to 90%. A quality cover will save you money on heating costs, chemicals, and clean up time by keeping debris out of your pool. They contribute to raising the temperature of your pool by as much as 15 degrees. This is done by collecting the sun’s rays for free and transferring the heat to the water in your pool.
Purchase and Use an Automatic Pool Cleaner
Even though this point has been brought up already, it is certainly worth mentioning again. No one wants to dedicate all of their time to keeping their pool clean. This would put a definite damper on spending time with family and friends. Make the investment and you will thank yourself many times in the long run.
Use Quality Pool Chemicals
Routinely use pool chemicals that are meant for fiberglass pools and are of quality. Don’t use products that no one has ever heard of, have very bad reviews, or any other type of “red flag”. There are many reputable companies out, are highly concentrated, and backed by some form of assurance or guarantee.
