    Maintenance and Care For Safety Covers!

    By Debbie
    Safety Covers  must always stretch tightly across the swimming pool. After the initial installation, some stretching may occur. The springs on the safety cover should be compressed 50%, you may need to readjust  the  straps. The water level in your pool can not go below 18” from the top, as a safety cover is designed to set down on the water with the weight of snow and ice. Without having the proper water level, the  safety cover will stretch too far, placing undue strain on the cover and voiding the warranty.

    Summerizing Your Pool

    By Greg
    After a long winter, its nearly that time of year again! It's time to open the pool. If you followed the proper procedure for winterizing & you have kept up with winter maintenance, you should have a smooth opening. Before you get started there are a couple of preliminary steps that need to be taken. The first thing you'll want to do  is to drop a hose under the cover in order to bring the water level up high.Once the hose is under the cover you can begin to remove any debris that's on top of the cover. I've found that the easiest way is to use your pool pole and an old nylon brush. Pull the debris toward you to the edge all the way down the length of the pool. Do NOT drag sharp objects!

    The Importance of Ph in Your Pool

    By Greg
    pH is one of the most important factors in pool water balance. It should be tested and corrected  at least once every week. pH is the measure of how acid/ alkaline the swimming pool water is. The pH of the human body is 7.2.  This may conclude why this number is also  perfect  for the pool. When pH drops below 7.0 the water becomes acidic.  Anything above 7.0 is alkaline.  There are many problems that can occur from having low/high ph.
