If you have a pool, ACHTWOO Pool and Spa Professionals can help you with any of your pool needs.

Below are some tips from the professionals at ACHTWOO on how to keep your pool in the best possible condition!

Spring is coming... and that means the temperature is going to rise. Once the water temperature gets above 65 degrees your pool may not be so easy to care for. At colder temperatures, algae growth is inhibited, but once it warms up…LOOK OUT! It’s easy to coast through winter without much attention to water chemistry but this time of year all is revealed. If you aren’t prepared, then you may end up spending hundreds of dollars on chemicals and repairs. So, this month is a good time to get your water chemistry perfect. Bring your chlorine level up to about 3.0 ppm, your pH between 7.2 and 7.8 (7.5 is the pH of the eye so if you keep it there your eyes won’t sting when you swim), and your total alkalinity between 80 and 120ppm (I like it at 100ppm). Backwash your filter and make sure your pump is circulating water like it should be (baskets free of debris and impeller not clogged). Change your timer so that you pump runs six to eight hours a day (preferably during the hottest part of the day). 

Having done all that, you should be prepared to tackle another HOT Texas summer. Work smarter, not harder…and ENJOY YOUR POOL!
