5 Reasons Why NOW is the Time! - March 17, 2015
Spring is just a few more days away and this year it seems as if it came very early!
During March, the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area is known for having snow on the ground and cold temperatures. These colder temperatures leave us feeling as if spring and summer is so far away and all the while we are ignoring our swimming pool.
Since this year has been warmer, there are a few things that all pool owners should beware of!
1.Warmer temperatures increase your chances of having algae growing in the swimming pool.
The warmer temperatures means that algae is more active then what it normally is and requires you to be checking on the chlorine levels frequently until the pool is opened. Checking the chlorine levels ensures that your swimming pool is still protected from becoming a green swamp!
2.Many people are cautious of when they open their swimming pool because of the operating expense.
But did you know that it’s more expensive to treat a green pool during late spring/early summer than it is to open your swimming pool a little earlier while it’s still clean and clear. During spring and early summer before the temperatures climb, you have the ability to limit the amount that the circulation system runs.
3.Spring brings about rain, sunshine, and blooming flowers. These beautiful buds will add color to our life while adding pollen into the air which settles into swimming pool.
As pollen collects in the stagnant water, it will consume more of the available chlorine in the cold water depleting the resources to prevent an algae bloom from occurring. If a swimming pool is open, and it’s sanitized the remnants will be circulated and collected in the filtration system.
4.When the temperatures increase or stay warmer longer, your chlorine is more active and has more of a demand; thus why a lot of pool owners find it’s easier to open their pools earlier with clean and clear water then it is to open late and have to address an algae bloom.
5.Make your backyard beautiful again! Since the swimming pool was closed, backyards always collect pine needles, leaves, pine cones and a whole lot of junk that just isn’t that appealing to look at. Right now is the perfect time to clean up the flower beds, garden and the area around the pool. The sooner your backyard area and pool decks are clear, and the pool is fully operational… the sooner you will be ready to enjoy your backyard when the sunshine is out. Your swimming pool will be ready for you to jump on in when the first hot day arrives!
These are only five of many reasons why not to wait to open your swimming pool. What are your reasons?!?
