Summer Is Almost Here: How To Get Your Pool Ready For Action

Summer is almost here. If you want to dip into your in-ground pool as soon as the weather warms up, now's the time to take care of the repairs. If you're not sure how to get your pool ready for summer, read the list provided below. Here are four repairs you need to take care of before summer. 

Restore Pump Pressure

If your pool water looked a bit green last summer, you'll need to get the pump repaired. Poor pressure can stop your pump from working. Unfortunately, if your pump doesn't have enough pressure, your pool water will suffer. That's because the pool pump removes bacteria from the water. Clogged or broken lines can reduce pressure in the pool pump. That's why you should take care of pump repairs before you use your pool this summer. 

Repair Heating Element

If you don't want to wait for your water to warm up, be sure to repair the heating element. A pool heater lets you get more enjoyment from your inground pool. When you have a heated pool, you can start swimming earlier in the season. Pool heating also lets you enjoy midnight swims. If your pool didn't get as warm as you wanted last summer, the heating element might be broken. If that's the case, you need to take care of the repairs right away. Repairing the heating element can prevent costly repairs down the road. 

Replenish Water Level

If the water level in your pool is a bit low, activate the fill switch. Then, watch the water level for a few days. If the water level stays the same, your pool is ready for use. But, if the water level gets lower, you've got a leak to worry about. Call for pool repairs right away. A leaky pool can lead to floods and soil erosion. A leaky pool can also increase your water bills. 

Replace Skimmer Basket

If your pool skimmer left leaves and debris behind last summer, it's time to replace the skimmer basket. A worn-out skimmer basket allows leaves and debris to escape back into the pool. That means you'll spend more time skimming the pool by hand. Unfortunately, that takes time away from your pool enjoyment. Before you're stuck skimming the pool by hand this summer, talk to your pool service provider about replacing the skimmer basket. It's also a good idea to have the filter inspected. That way, you can take care of any necessary repairs.
