Pools are absolutely fantastic. It’s great to get wake yourself up with some morning laps; jump in during the heat of the day to cool yourself off; or entertain friends with a poolside barbecue, but nothing is worse than finding a bunch of leaves or other gunk, or even dead toads or creepy crawlies in your pool. That’s a great way to end your party fast!
So what can you do? How do you keep debris and other yucky stuff out of your pool? Don’t worry! There are a bunch of things you can do to ensure your summertime pool fun. You can cover your pool with a pool cover when it is not in use. Just make certain that you invest in a good quality cover that fits securely around your pool. If not, you may as well not even bother.
It’s also a great idea to install a privacy fence around your pool. Privacy fences offer tightly fitting boards that ensure your privacy, as well as keep large debris from blowing into your pool. Tall privacy fences also help to keep animals away from your pool. That’s a good thing because no one wants an alligator or possum getting comfy enough to take a dip in their pool. Yikes!
To keep smaller debris from making its way into your pool, eliminate overhanging branches and keep plants that are close to your pool well-trimmed. The more you do, the less leaves and foliage debris you will have to deal with.
It’s even better if your pool is surrounded by a screened in lanai, but even then you may find that pollen and tiny bugs still infiltrate your fortress. That being said, it is always good to frequently skim your pool with a net. Better yet, you can employ the professional pool cleaning services of SE Pools!
