It's the Season for a Pool Spring Cleaning!

Ahh, it’s Spring! Days are getting longer, flowers are blooming, and pool owners across the city are opening their pools for the much-anticipated spring break.  Your pool deserves a Pool Spring Cleaning!

At Crocodile Pools, we’re pretty sure that everyone from babies to grandparents agrees that spring is not nearly as fun without a pool.

One thing we know for sure is many people don’t show their pool much TLC during the winter months and it is time to get the water back in shape now that spring is here. But, before you can organize the season’s first belly flop contest, you need to make sure your pool is clean.

First, there is a misconception when it comes to pool chemicals and sanitizers. They are not meant to keep your pool clean, they are added to keep the water and you clean, and they degrade over time which is why you need to add more periodically.

You’re just in time for a good pool Spring cleaning!

Clogged Drains

This is one of the biggest concerns for a pool owner and with good cause. A clogged drain can burn out your water pump motor, and if it does it could set you back a pretty penny to replace or repair it.  Which leads to the next reason for a good Spring Pool Cleaning.

Prevent Algae Growth

If your pool has turned a nasty shade of green, it means it has been overtaken by algae, and unless you are planning on generating your own biofuel, you will want to tackle this before you go for a swim.

A dirty pool filter is usually to blame, as the algae build up water flow can become restricted, and this can lead to expensive mechanical problems.

Prevent Cloudy Water

Pools should have crystal clear water that sparkles in the sunshine; however, use, chemical imbalances or faulty mechanics can turn your pool water into a cloudy mess.

A proper pool spring cleaning and professional chemical application can turn your lackluster pool into the backyard star it was meant to be.

Avoid Illness

Nothing ruins spring break like getting sick. Remember water is the preferred habitat of some pesky little creepy crawlers that can’t be seen with the naked eye, we are of course talking about viruses, bacteria, and fungus which can cause:

Ear infections
Skin irritation or rash
Respiratory problems

Having a properly cleaned pool will prevent algae, bacteria, fungus, and viruses from making your pool their permanent home.
