The Pool Shop Group - Pool and Spa Service and Maintenance

As Perth braces for an incoming heatwave this week, pool owners need to be extra vigilant in safeguarding their pool against the scorching temperatures. The Pool Shop Group is here to offer essential tips on how to protect your pool amidst the impending heatwave.

1. Monitor Water Levels: With temperatures soaring, evaporation rates will increase. Keep an eye on your pool's water levels and ensure they remain within the recommended range.

2. Maintain Proper Chemical Balance: High temperatures can throw off the chemical balance of your pool water. Test the water regularly and adjust chlorine, pH, and alkalinity levels as needed to maintain clarity and sanitation.

3. Enhance Filtration and Circulation: During heatwaves, pool water is more susceptible to algae growth and contamination. Increase filtration and circulation times to keep the water clean and clear.

4. Protect Pool Surfaces: Prolonged exposure to intense heat can cause pool surfaces to deteriorate. Consider applying a suitable surface sealer to prevent cracking and damage.

5. Stay Hydrated: While you're busy caring for your pool, don't forget to stay hydrated yourself. Drink plenty of water and take breaks as needed to avoid heat-related illnesses.

6. Shade and Shelter: Provide shade or shelter for your pool area to reduce the impact of direct sunlight. This can help lower water temperatures and minimize evaporation.

7. Prepare Pool Equipment: Check and service your pool equipment, including pumps, filters, and heaters, to ensure they can handle the increased workload during the heatwave.
