by / Friday, 08 March 2013 / Published in Latest Blog Entries - Stanley Homes Inc.

When building homes in Viera FL, one of the many must haves from our customers is a pool. On a hot summer day, nothing is better than taking a nice relaxing dip in a cool swimming pool to get relief from the heat. While the Florida beaches on theSpace Coast are beautiful, it is also great to be able to get swimming exercise regularly in your own personal pool, and to allow others to enjoy your pool as well.  While many of the communities in Viera, FL have a community pool,  many customers building homes in Viera FL still choose the option to have their own custom pool.  For some Stanley Homes customers this might be their family’s first pool.  For others building a new custom home in Brevard County FL it maybe has been quite a while since they have maintained their own pool.  That is why Stanley Homes wanted to go over a few tips on maintaining your new custom pool home.

Properly maintaining your pool is very important so that your family and friends can enjoy swimming and playing in a clean, safe pool. A regularly maintained pool in Stanley homes is one that everyone can enjoy. Depending on the size of your pool, keep the pool water clean and the pool itself sanitary can be quite a job. You can choose to maintain your pool yourself, or hire help to do it for you. If you choose to do it yourself, then make sure to fully clean the pool, keep the water sanitized and take other measures to ensure that the pool is safe and clean for all to enjoy. Most pool companies that Stanley Homes coordinates with whenbuilding homes in Viera FL offer a pool school which is extremely helpful on how to take care of and maintain your pool. This pool school can be very important for customers who arebuilding homes in Viera FL that picked the option of a salt water pool and have never maintained one before.

Maintaining your pool does not have to be a chore. It depends on the size of your pool and what kind of pool you have. Simple problems like cloudy water and broken pumps can be handled easily by the owner of the pool, as long as you consult the owner’s manual of the pool. Pool maintenance should be done on a regular basis to ensure that each time someone gets into the pool, they are getting into the pool in the cleanest and safest state possible. During times of heavy use, you should do basic maintenance of the pool on a weekly basis. Surface cleaning of the pool should be done at least once a week. This includes brushing the interior surface of the pool to clean any dirt or debris. Make sure all dirt and debris goes toward the drains of the pool. Also, vacuum the interior surface of the pool to ensure that all of the debris’ are removed. You will also want to run a net over the surface of the water of the pool to remove any fallen leaves, dirt, branches, twigs, and any other debris that have fallen into the pool.  Also, check the chlorine levels of the pool, along with the acidity of the water. You can pick up a special kit that will help you to check your pools water quality.  These kits are sold at pool stores and many large chains like Wal-Mart and Target.

Beyond weekly, the grout and tile of the pool should be thoroughly cleaned using a cleaning solution. If your pool has a salt chlorinator, check it every month. The mastic should also be inspected for any damage. If there is any, repair the damage or replace it. Also, if needed, super chlorinate the water after a rainstorm to ensure that it is clean. Also, when necessary, the water should be changed completely. Another important thing to do is have a professional inspect the pool. You can do basic repairs and maintenance on your own, but having a professional inspect your pool is important or making sure that there isn’t any damage that you may have missed.

However, if you have the luxury of hiring a professional to come and give your pool a thorough cleaning and disinfection periodically, that works too!
