How to Clean Your Pool After a Party
Pool parties are, without a doubt, the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon or a weekend. While planning a pool party may be a bit stressful, like getting all the right accessories and supplies, Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs make it easy to find all the necessary pool supplies in Toronto for your next party. Following a pool party, your swimming pool will need some love and attention, but luckily, you can count on Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs for backyard swimming pool maintenance and pool closing services in the Greater Toronto Area.
Here’s your guide to pool party cleanup and maintenance.
Test Your Water
After a party, it’s in your best interest to test the pH of your pool before taking a swim. This way, you can determine if you need to add chemicals or not. If you’re unsure about water testing, visit Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs for pool supplies in Toronto, including water testing kits. Water testing kits have everything you need for keeping your water pristine and sparkling in one swift purchase.
Run Pool Pump
Once your party has ended, or the day after, you should run your pool pump to get the water circulating. This will help eliminate any debris and bring fresh, clean water into your pool. While your pump is running, take your skimmer net and try to pick up any large pieces of debris that could be floating in your pool. Although your pump is an excellent tool to eliminate small amounts of foliage and dirt, your skimmer net is integral to cleaning out large pieces of debris from your pool. If you wish to keep the pool cleaning and filtration to the professionals, contact Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs for pool maintenance and pool closing services.
Pool brushes are essential to ensure your swimming pool stays sparkling clean throughout the summer. Brushing around your pool removes algae or dirt clinging to the walls and surfaces. Ideally, this task should be completed every day during swim season to eliminate the potential for algae to bloom against the walls. However, it should certainly be done following your pool party, so it’ll be pristine the next time you go for a quick, refreshing dip.
Shock Your Pool
Shocking the water in your swimming pool is a fantastic way to guarantee that all bacteria and contaminants are eliminated before you, your family or your friends jump in. Once removing the larger debris, like grass, dirt, leaves, or insects, with your pool pump or skimmer net, shock the water so it’ll be in perfect shape. While it is a good idea to shock your swimming pool before your pool party to get crystal clear water, you’ll have to make sure you have enough time for it to settle before your guests go for a swim.
