Your swimming pool is designed to be an easy, carefree setting where you can enjoy many hours of fun and excitement. By incorporating just a few minutes of preventative pool care to your maintenance routine , you’ll ensure family fun in the future.


  • Check and maintain pH levels at 7.2 – 7.6.
  • Monitor and maintain chlorine levels at 1.0 – 3.0 ppm.
  • Empty skimmer baskets, skim leaves, insects and other items from pool surface, and clean pool wall tile at the water line.


  • Shock the pool with shock treatment in the evening per label instructions. This treatment restores the sparkle and sheen to pool water as it destroys germs and burns away organic contaminants. Additional packaged shock treatment may be needed after a rainstorm, heavy bather load or exceptionally hot weather.
  • The next morning, add a maintenance dose of algaecide.


Take a water sample to your local pool retailer for a complete water analysis. Be sure to test these levels:

  • Alkalinity 
  • Calcium hardness 
  • Stabilizer


  • Clean your filter with a filter cleaner to remove any oils and grease that may have accumulated in your filter.
  • Always seek the advice of a pool professional regarding any special or unusual problems.
