When someone hears about a saltwater swimming pool, it may sound unusual and even unappealing. Swimming in the ocean is one thing, but do you really want to replicate that experience in the backyard? Saltwater swimming pools actually aren’t anything like the ocean, as they have substantially less salt. The salt is there to disinfect the water through a chemical reaction so pool owners don’t need to have a standard chlorinated system.
Have you just installed a new pool and need a pool cover for the winter? Are you looking for ways to keep your pool intact and clean throughout the winter months? A pool cover is a great investment. A pool cover helps to keep dirt and debris out of the pool. A pool cover also prevents harmful bacteria from growing in the water. Several pool anchors are available based on the strength you need and material you prefer. For instance, pool cover anchors for a wood deck are made especially for a small pool or hot tub. There are also brass pool anchors. These anchors are particularly sturdy and work well for larger pools.
Hard water is common in many municipalities and most people don’t realize they have it, even in their swimming pools. Since it doesn’t pose a health risk, it just isn’t something that people look for. However, coarse dingy clothes and spotted dishes can be a symptom of hard water. Do you have pesky water stains in wet areas, like sinks and tubs? If you do, then you probably have hard water.
Whether you’re adding a new pool to your property or you’re giving your existing pool a makeover, choosing the right inground pool coping option is essential if you want your pool to stay looking great.
If you’ve recently had a pool installed and you’ve opted for salt water, you’ll need to know how salt water pool systems work. This means ensuring that the pool is clean and that the water is of great quality. After all, spending time in the pool is a great way to get some exercise and spend some time with friends and loved ones. The majority of pools have chlorine in the water, which means that someone has to add chlorine, along with other chemicals, to the water so that bacteria and algae won’t grow. This is especially common in public and community pools since lots of people get into the water on a regular basis, and it’s important that the water is as clean as possible. However, chlorine can cause topical allergic reactions in some people and can cause problems if ingested. As such, saltwater pools are becoming more popular because they are a healthier alternative and don’t require much maintenance. Here we list a few salt water pool maintenance tips.
In 2018, virtual assistants and self-driving cars have been introduced. Before this, nobody knew or cared who Alexa was (the name of the Amazon virtual assistant). But, suddenly, we find ourselves in a new environment with new gadgets. Trends happen in every industry, including the pool business.
Heating a swimming pool is usually one of the biggest ongoing expenses with this home feature. Many homeowners keep the heat on all the time instead of turning it down or off when the pool isn’t in use for a few days or longer. As with home heating, turning the heat down or off altogether saves money and energy. When people use the pool infrequently, it costs less to warm the pool back up than to keep it at optimum temperature all the time.
Gone are the days when you had to settle for a mundane, square inground swimming pool. Today, pools come in all different shapes to suit every lifestyle imaginable. Do you want a pool shaped like a crescent? That can be done. Do you want a pool that fits between two tall buildings and is elongated and not very wide? That can be done, too. Swimming pool shapes and sizes no longer must fit a pre-made mold.
As pool season approaches, many homeowners are considering switching their pools from chlorine to saltwater. Why? Saltwater pools are considered healthier and environmentally friendly. Are you interested in learning how do saltwater pool systems work?
