What does your pool need when you’re on vacation?
Staycation was a way many of our customers spent the summer of 2020 but this year, they are packing up and taking off! However when you are a swimming pool owner, there are automatic pool components that can be operated remotely or set on a timer to keep the pool water clean and circulating and algae at bay.
- Ask a friend or family member to check on the pool and turn the pump and filter on and off. They may even empty the skimmer basket and test the water chemistry to ensure it’s balanced.
- Using timers and phone apps can help you monitor water quality and turn equipment on and off.
- You may still want to keep with your pool maintenance schedule simply because the routine ensures the water is swimmable and that the equipment is operating as it should.
Give us a call if you’re planning on taking a vacation and aren’t sure what steps to take to ensure the pool is cared for while you’re gone. The last thing you want to come home to is a pool that is green with algae — that means you won’t be able to use it and no one wants that!
