It is March already! Around this time, Canadians begin to anticipate summertime. Even a foot of snow on the ground or a storm in the forecast doesn’t shake our confidence. We can begin to imagine sitting around a barbeque or splashing in a backyard pool. If you own a pool, you know that those idyllic days do not happen without planning and preparation.
You may already be thinking about what you need to do to get the pool ready for swimming. It is too soon to clean and prepare the pool and equipment. But it is a great time to begin to plan for the busy season ahead. We think March is the perfect time to plan for summer by subscribing to a monthly pool maintenance kit.
Our subscription plan: Coastal Pools supports the do-it-yourself pool owner
If you have cared for a pool, you understand that maintaining it in pristine condition takes vigilance. It takes consistent effort every week to keep the pool water sanitized, balanced and healthy. Staying on top of things will save you time and expense in the long run. But, as the summer gets busy, it is not always easy to keep on top of things. Thankfully, the hardest part of doing a task is having the right materials at hand when you need them.
At Coastal Pools, we have six years of professional experience looking after the needs of families with pools. We understand what it takes to keep a pool’s pH, alkalinity, and chlorine levels perfectly balanced. We have created a kit to help with pool maintenance for do-it-yourself pool owners. It will supply what your pool needs and help with the application of those chemicals.
Why should I get a subscription plan?
We are offering this kit on a convenient subscription plan because we know how busy you are. This summer-long subscription will help you keep your pool maintenance on-track. And it will give you the confidence you need to tackle your pool’s care week after week. You will have just the right amount of products for the month, delivered directly to your door. In the kit, you will find everything you need to keep your pool sanitized and the chemicals properly balanced and instructions on how to properly dose them and when to do so. The subscription can be cancelled at any time if your needs happen to change. If you cancel before the end of the month, this will ensure you are not billed for the following month.
The Essential Monthly Pool Maintenance Kit
Our Essential Monthly Pool Maintenance Kit contains quality chemicals that are compatible with all types of pools. It includes everything you will need to maintain your pool’s pH balance, alkalinity levels, and to keep it sanitized.
The benefits of consistent pool care
Maintaining a consistent balance of chemicals in your pool is cost-effective and saves time. It means that you will need to clean your pool surfaces and equipment less frequently. And you will need to repair and replace them less often. Your pool will also require less chlorination. This will save money and be healthier for your swimmers and for the environment.
Balancing your pool chemicals: How it all works
A pH level that is too high means that your pool water is too alkaline. At a higher pH level, the chlorine in the water will be less chemically available and therefore less effective. This means that you will need to add more chlorine to the water to properly sanitize your pool. This additional chlorine is potentially harmful for swimmers and the environment. Also, at higher pH levels, the calcium tends to precipitate out of the water. This can make the water cloudy and result in calcification on pool surfaces and equipment.
A pH level that is too low means that the pool water is too acidic. It will be corrosive to the pool equipment and to the plaster surfaces of your pool. Also, at a lower pH level, the chlorine in the water is more effective but less stable. This means that you will be chlorinating more often.
The Premium Monthly Pool Maintenance Kit
If you want to provide a little extra care for your pool, try our Premium Monthly Pool Maintenance Kit. This kit contains everything in the Essential kit, plus a few extras to keep your pool even more pristine. It includes products to help manage phosphates, promote water clarity, and prevent body scum buildup.
Managing phosphate levels for optimum pool health
Managing phosphate levels can optimize your pool water quality. Sometimes a little more phosphate can be helpful to neutralize the metal salts in your pool water. At other times, lowering phosphate levels is part of the strategy for inhibiting algae growth. Our Premium Monthly Kit will provide you with the tools you need to monitor and manage your pool’s phosphate levels.
Keeping your pool water crystal clear
Scum lines can sometimes build up around the pool’s waterline. This build-up occurs over time as swimmers’ natural oils and skin fragments are washed away into the pool water. Body lotion and sunscreen can also build up around the pool’s waterline and equipment. Our Premium Monthly Kit includes enzyme and anti-microbial treatments that break down pool water impurities. This will keep your pool sparkling clean.
Stay confident and have a great summer!
With Coastal Pool’s monthly maintenance kits, you can be confident that your pool is always ready for swimming. Whether you opt for the essential kit or the premium version, you’ll have everything you need to maintain a healthy and sparkling pool all season long.
