New Year’s Resolutions for swimming pool owners

Look, we all WANT to be good pool owners, but things don’t always work out that way. Sometimes we let some things slide, one thing leads to another and well, yeah. You get it. The good news is – 2023 is a new year and a new year can mean a new you and a new you could also mean being a better swimming pool owner. 

Today, we’re going to talk about some possible new years resolutions for prospective pool owners out there and some of the things you can do to get back on the horse and have the pool you’ve always dreamed of. Let’s jump right in! 

Being better with maintenance

Maintenance is always the one area of owning a pool where most people slack the most-  but can also be the most costly. Let something slide a little too long and it can go from a nuisance to a costly catastrophe. In many respects, it’s always the small things that usually morph into the things that create the most havoc. 

Maybe it’s time to get motivated and buy a new skimmer, put together a schedule and get on the horse. It could also just be worth it for you to call up your local swimming pool company and get on a monthly maintenance plan. Yeah, it might cost a little more money than you’d like, but compared to what the cost could be if you let something slide? It could be substantial. 


It’s understandable to slack on maintenance now and then – but it’s utterly unacceptable to let things on the safety side of things go. Tragedies happen all over the country because people don’t do the basics. Don’t be that person. Look to secure your pool – better barriers, fences, gates, ladders and inspect the elements you do have – things like diving boards, safety locks, and the like. 

And if you want to take things a step further – have some discussions with you family about pool safety once a year. Just a run-down – from what does what, how things work and what to do in various situations can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. If you want to get really proactive – have your family take a CPR course together. Make sure people are prepared in the instance that the worst occurs. 

Try to have a little more fun

Remember why you bought your pool to begin with! Have more people over. Spend more time with the people who matter the most. Create those memories. So much of our time is consumed by things that seem important in the short term – but in the big picture don’t matter an iota. Carve that time out every week. Spend more time with your loved ones. Spend more time in your pool with loved ones. Life is no good if we don’t take the time to pump the breaks and take a little bit of a look around now and then.
