Consult your Charlotte pool companies for repairing your pool deck
With spring just around the corner, everyone is anxious to reopen their pools and create a new pool deck for a summer of leisure. Some pool owners are a little unsure about how and when this should be done. Hence, we have listed a complete routine that will help ensure that you can start focusing on how to enjoy the season. If you are unsure or do not have the time, there are some reputable pool companies in the Charlotte area that will be happy to take on the project for you.
Remove debris from the pool cover – Over the winter season dead branches, leaves, and other debris need to be carefully and thoroughly removed before you remove the pool cover. Clean the area around your pool and the pool deck. Once it has been properly cleared, remove the pool cover and scrub it with a stiff but gentle brush and a mild detergent solution. This should remove molds, mildews, and bacteria buildup before you store it for the summer season.
Check chemical levels – Make sure that you have plenty of pool cleaning chemicals on hand. If any of the chemicals were not stored properly or are at low levels, you will need to buy replacements. For example, if chlorine is left open over an extended period of time, will usually breakdown and decay, releasing ineffective and harmful compounds in your pool.
Inspect your pool and deck – Inspection of the pool, tile, deck and filter systems can be done by pool owners, but your annual pre-season inspection should be performed by a reputable and experienced pool company.
Freeze plugs and skimmer baskets – You will want to remove every freeze plug from water inlets. Carefully remove the winter plates from the skimmer box, attach the hose from the skimmer and check for leaks in lines that lead to the pump and filter.
Fill and restart filtration system – Once you are convinced that everything is in working order, start cycling water into your pool carefully, being mindful to prevent debris from falling in the pool. After the power is on, look for any type of malfunction in the system, and if you have any question contact the pool builders to have a technician perform the necessary repairs.
Test the water – After 2 or 3 days test the pool water with a home test kit, or take a sample to a local pool company for recommendations for necessary adjustments. If you use a mesh cover it is a good idea to add the appropriate amount of liquid shock to the pool early in April or May. You should not use the pool for the recommended treatment period (usually 10-14 days). Once the pool has been properly treated and you are sure that everything is working properly, you and your family can begin to enjoy a clean and refreshing pool for another swim season.
