If you have decided to have a pool installed in your backyard and haven’t ever had one before, there is certainly a learning curve as you get used to taking care of it. There is a great deal of maintenance that you need to be aware of so that you can enjoy your pool as much as possible. While this may be intimidating and overwhelming, as you learn more about how to care for your pool, the easier it will get. Metropolitan Pools is here to share some tips for new pool owners.
Read the Pool Owners Manual
One of the most important things you can do is to get to know your pool. Don’t disregard the manual that came with it, read it. You need to know how the equipment works, water chemistry and balancing as well as proper maintenance so that you can care for it. You will find that you enjoy your pool more when you get to know it better.
Clean Pool Regularly
This can’t be stressed enough; you have to make sure your pool is cleaned on a regular basis. This means that the pH levels need to be checked regularly, drains need to be unclogged and checked, the pool floor needs to be vacuumed and more. A clean pool is a fun pool. When your pool is dirty, you can’t spend time in and enjoy it.
Learn & Follow Water Safety
Water safety is something that you should take very seriously. If you have small children, you should consider putting a fence around your pool so that they aren’t ever near the water without supervision. No one should run on the pool deck as there is a high risk of slipping and falling anytime the deck is wet. Think about the safety rules you want to put in place to keep your pool a safe place.
Budget for Pool

It’s always a good idea to set aside a little money that can be used for these items that seem to pop up from time to time.
