Maintaining Your Swimming Pool in Summer

Maintaining Your Swimming Pool in SummerBlue pool

Its great having a swimming pool on your property can be a fantastic way to cool down during those hot summer months. But like most things things, a swimming pool requires quite a bit of maintenance and attention to detail. Many people choose to enlist the help of pool professionals, but if you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person read on to find out how to keep your pool’s water sparkling clean.

Understanding Your Pool’s Water Needs

Become familiar with your pool’s total alkalinity and pH levels. Total alkalinity is a way of measuring the water’s ability to neutralize acidity. Your water’s alkalinity levels are directly related to your water’s pH; the higher the total alkalinity, the higher the pH levels of your pool’s water will be.

  • pH levels measure how acidic or basic substances are. The pH scale has a range between 0 and Chemical check list14, with a neutral pH at 7.

 Know your pool’s chlorine, calcium hardness, acid, and total dissolved solids levels. Besides the pH and alkaline levels, these are also important considerations. Make sure you understand what they are and how they benefit your water.

  • Chlorine is used to disinfect and sanitize the water.
  • Calcium hardness refers to the amount of calcium present in the water. If the calcium levels are too low your water will become corrosive, potentially ruining the body of your pool.
  • Acid protects the chlorine in the water from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
  • Total dissolved solids are mainly composed of inorganic salts (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulfates) and small amounts of other organic materials Pool Chemicalsdissolved in the water.

Akamas Peninsula and National Park

The Akamas National Park lies on the west coast of Cyprus, a truly pictorial part of the island. It has an area coverage of 230 square kilometers containing valleys, gorges and wide sandy bays. The wildlife diversity is crucial for the ecology in the Mediterranean. In this spectacular environment there are 168 varieties of birds, 20 different reptiles, 16 species of butterfly and 12 different mammals not to mention its very rich variety of fauna. The important significance of the Akamas Peninsula has been duly noted; The European Council has included it in its Mediterranean Protection Program The Cyprus Government has yet to fully declare it as a National Park for tourist and local landowners reasons, although friends of the Earth and Green Peace are lobbying hard for it.
