Summer is fast approaching and whether your pool is private-use, or used by guests at your holiday villa, it’s important to make sure that the pool is in top condition to avoid any problems that may crop up down the line.
If you want your pool to be a pristine blue all summer, then you’re going to need to tick some boxes before the summer months officially start.
THE POOL COVER
As with everything on Lanzarote, the sun does damage over time. If your pool cover is looking tired, the colour fading and bits flaking off, it’s time you ordered a new custom-fitted cover. It is vital to have a high-quality pool cover for general pool care as a deteriorated cover can cost you more money on heating as the pool will lose heat much quicker with an older cover.
If you have a rental villa, you will have certainly heard the dreaded words “the pool isn’t warm”. Pool heater technology changes every year, with quieter and more efficient models becoming readily available.
Now is the perfect time to have that old, loud, and cumbersome heater changed for a new and sleeker one.
FIX THOSE LEAKS
Although it isn’t advised, you may have had a small leak for some time without the walls bubbling up. However, the longer you leave it the higher the cost to fix it will be.
It may not look like much, but a small leak can quickly turn into a massive repair job before you know it, and a drained pool is the last thing you would want just before the intense heat of the summer months arrive.
THE CHEMICAL BALANCE
This is especially important if you have a rental villa. Your pool can turn from a blue paradise to a green swamp in the blink of an eye if you don’t keep on top of your chlorine and pH levels.
Chlorine and pH are the basics of pool care, however, in some cases you may need different chemicals. If you are unsure it’s best to call the professionals.
