With the new year now upon us, it’s the perfect time to sit down, reflect on the last year and write down some of the New Year’s Resolutions we’d like to make.
Most people like to focus on personal and financial goals but if you’re a pool owner – there’s always a chance to make the experience a little better! We’re willing to bet there’s something you’ve always been wanting to do as far as your swimming pool is concerned and today – we have a few resolutions for you to consider heading forward.
Here are some of the things that every pool owner should consider for their swimming pool New Year’s Resolutions. Let’s jump right in!
Clean up your surroundings
Falling leaves, dirt and debris are part of owning a pool. Maybe it’s time for you to trim back those shrubs, bushes and trees around your pool so that the debris they create doesn’t end up directly in your pool. Using a leaf net is helpful, but imagine not having to use it all the time.
Swim more often
After all the food you just blew through this holiday season – this might be a good idea! We jest. But everyone usually has some sort of personal goal in mind – whether it’s getting in better shape, weight loss or just trimming down. And truth be told – there isn’t a better way to do that than through swimming. Swimming is a full body workout that will help melt fat and build muscle and endurance in ways than slaving away at the gym won’t ever do. Swim more and enjoy the boost to your personal health!
A little chemistry
You’d be surprised at how many people we’ve done installs for who don’t understand or know their pool’s water chemistry. And to a degree – we get it. Testing pool water is not only time consuming, but it can get pricey from time to time.
But that being said – it’s important you know how to test your water and what it’s chemical composition is supposed to look like. IN the event something bad happens- you’ll want to know if too many or too few chemicals are to blame or not. Purchase a water test kit at your local supply kit and they come with instructions that are straightforward and easy to follow. It’ll save you lots of time and money in the long run.
We feel like we say it every time we share one of these blogs out – but pools are best enjoyed with others; Family, friends – the people who are important to you in your life. It’s also an important component of your overall health. Use your pool the way it was intended – as a place to gather with people and create memories. Host a pool party, a birthday party – or just invite friends over more. You’ll be better for it.
Hopefully these resolutions are helpful and we wish you nothing but good health and happiness in the year to come! Good luck and happy new years!
