What You Need To Do To Prepare Your Pool For The New Swimming Season...

If it's almost summer, then backyard BBQ's and pool parties are just around the corner! Now you've got to think about preparing your pool for use after the winter months. Seem like a chore? It doesn't have to be... especially if you have taken good care of your pool during its hiatus. Here's a checklist that will help you make sure your pool is ready when summer rolls around.

Sort through all pool supplies. Throw away those that are in poor condition.
Check the date on chemicals and replace items that have passed their expiration.

Pump, hose, or sweep away water, dirt, or debris from the pool cover and then do the same for the pool deck.
Carefully remove the cover and clean it. NOTE: Proper cover removal helps keep the pool relatively clear. Allow the cover to dry to prevent mildew and then fold and store it for the summer.
Reinstall deck ladders, diving board, and other deck fittings. NOTE: The remainder of the petroleum jelly used to coat exposed metal fittings will need to be wiped clean with a terry cloth towel. Lubricate all bolts on the dive board, ladders, or rails.
If the pool water is low, bring it up to normal.

Reinstall or reassemble the pump, filter, and other removed items.
Raise the underwater lights from the bottom of the pool and install them in their niches.
Have the heater professionally serviced before you use it.
Remove the plugs and replace return outlet fittings.
Check for leaks and proper operation.

Restore circuit breakers, switches, and the time clock trippers to normal operating positions.
Turn on the electric power and start up the support system

Super chlorinate, or “shock” the pool. Test the pH and total alkalinity and adjust the levels. NOTE: Be sure to check the levels frequently during the first few days until they stabilize.
Restart the circulation equipment to further clean the pool. Run the circulation system 24 hours straight for the first three days or until the water has cleared completely. NOTE: Don’t forget to backwash the filter frequently during this time.
Vacuum out any debris from the bottom. Retest the water. Treat the water with an algaecide. Do not go into the pool until the water is crystal clear and the chlorine level is at 2.0 ppm.

Prepare the barbeque, tables, charis, music and invite your friends for a memorable party.

What Every Pool Owner Should Know About

Although swimming remains one of the healthiest and safest forms of recreation today, the need for awareness about pool safety cannot be overstressed.

When people (especially children) come to a pool, a full explanation of pool rules should be given before any activity around the pool begins. This not only helps prevent accidents from occurring, but it helps you win the respect of your guests. Swimming in your AQUALUX pool should be regarded as a privilege.

Here Are 25 Rules And Tips To Make Sure Everyone Stays Safe:
1 - Never swim alone.
2 - No running around the pool.
3 - No rough playing or “dunking”.
4 - No glass containers around the pool.
5 - No bobby pins or metallic objects around the pool.
6 - No long-distance underwater swimming.
7 - Use pool toys with care.
8 - Swim to the floor of the deep end before diving. Dive only when and where it is safe (not on top of swimmers and not in shallow water.)
9 - Children should not use the pool without adult supervision, and the adult should be a competent swimmer.
10 - No electrical appliances or wires should be allowed near the pool.
11 - A first-aid kit should be kept near the pool.
12 - A selected list of emergency telephone numbers should be on hand which includes the nearest available physician, ambulance service, hospital, police, fire and/or rescue unit.
13 - The pool deck should be kept clean and clear of debris. Dirty surfaces can become slippery and can cause accidents.
14 - Be careful with inflatable toys and mattresses. REMEMBER: those items are also deflatable.
15 - Pools are like driving an automobile; they don’t mix well with alcohol. Keep inebriated guests out of the pool.
16 - Allow a meal to “settle” before going into the pool. If you are overly tired, go to bed….. not for a swim.
17 - Swimmers with open sores and infections should not use the pool.
18 - Be careful--do not overexpose yourself to the sun.
19 - Children, particularly, like to use the diving equipment and slide. Give them good supervision and make sure that there is no horseplay. Allow jumping and diving only from the front of the board. Residential pools’ diving boards were not designed for use in Olympic tryouts; keep the dive simple.
20 - There should be a periodic safety and maintenance check for all pool appliances and equipment.
21 - Children should rest periodically to avoid over exhaustion.
22 - Begin teaching your children to swim at the earliest possible age. Until they learn to swim well, teach them to scream in the event they should fall in the water. This will greatly increase the chance of someone hearing them and coming to their rescue.
23 - Learn mouth-to-mouth resuscitation prescribed by the American Red Cross. For more information about these and other life saving techniques, contact your Red Cross chapter for training.
24 - Regularly check gate latches, 2nd springs, and check the batteries in pool alarms to ensure a safe and secure swimming pool.
25 - Always keep floating toys and games out of the pool after being used. Children have a natural tendency to reach for those first.


Experts will tell you that swimming is one of the best exercises you can do. Some of the benefits include improved strength and flexibility, a stronger heart, increased energy, improved circulation, weight loss and stress relief. Swimming is just one of many water exercises you can do at home.

Stay fit this summer with these simple water exercises:
1 - Kicks: Grab a kickboard, or hold onto the edge of the pool, and kick to tone your legs, buttocks and stomach.
2 - Running: Increase your heart rate by running in the water. Be sure you’re in chest-high water, and begin by running with your hands on your head. As you become more experienced, try paddling with your arms. You can also try walking or jogging in water.
3 - Bobbing: Improve breathing and muscle tone by bobbing up and down in the water.
4 - Tread Water: You can improve arm and leg strength simply by treading water.
5 - Yoga: Improve your flexibility and strength while relaxing with gentle yoga movements. Try purchasing a water yoga DVD to learn specific exercises and workouts.
6 - Leg Lifts: Hold onto the side of the pool, and life each leg 10 times behind you, in front of you and to the side. This will help to condition your legs, buttocks and stomach.
7 - Pull-Ups: Strengthen your back, shoulders and arms with pull-ups. Hold onto the side of the pool and lower your body as much as possible. Keep your knees bent, exhale and pull yourself up as high as you can.


The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) suggests these six proven ways to reduce your pool’s energy use.

If you do not yet have a pool cover, make that investment a first step toward greater energy savings. A cover can make a 50% to 70% difference in energy saved on pool heating, depending on your climate zone and the time of year.


Reduce your filter operation times as much as possible. It is suggested that you reduce your filter operating times to no less than four or five hours per day during the summer, and two or three hours per day during the winter period. Normal and heavier swimming use may require as much as eight or more hours of filtration per day. Should water clarity or chemical imbalance indicate inadequate filtration, immediately operate the filter until acceptable water clarity again has been established. If additional filtration is still indicated, increase the filter operating time in half hour increments, until the water remains clear and properly balanced chemically. In some areas, utility rates are higher during certain times of the day; therefore, you may wish to install an extra set of trippers on your time clock so the filtration time can be split around the peak period.

This is another key to efficient and energy savings operation of your pump and filter. Leaves and other debris can clog the filter and the strainer basket in the pump and skimmer, causing the pump to use more energy to do its job.

First, consider a proper pool temperature. Medical authorities recommend a water temperature of 78° for recreational swimming. Excessive pool temperature is wasteful – just like overheating a room. If your pool is used regularly, set your thermostat at 78° and forbid tampering.

Examine the circumstances within your climactic zone and determine in advance your own swimming season. It’s far better to turn off the heater at your predetermined date than to wake up and realize that no one has used the pool for a week…..or even longer.

Take a look at the length of time your heater operates during a given time period, and then see how it compares to the time your family is actually in the pool. Less energy is required to re-heat a pool for a weekend or special occasion than to maintain a constant temperature all week. But keep in mind that it takes about one hour to raise your pool’s temperature just one degree. So be sure to allow enough time for the water to reach a comfortable temperature.

What better way to enjoy a warm summer evening than to throw a party in your own backyard! Next time you invite your friends and family over for a swim, try one of these fun and unique party themes.

Turn your backyard into a tropical paradise! Play Hawaiian music in the background and have your guests dress in Hawaiian shirts or grass skirts. Welcome them with homemade leis or seashell necklaces, and decorate with bright tropical colors. You can create the ambiance of a tropical island by putting up tiki torches and scattering tropical flowers on the tables. For dinner, grill up some skewers with chicken, pineapple and veggies, or treat your guests to an authentic pig roast. To top off your magical evening, serve tropical drinks and beverages in cups made of hollowed-out half coconuts. And don’t forget to play a few games like the limbo or a hula dance contest.


In memory of the good old fashioned drive-in movie theatres, try hosting movie night in your own backyard with a “float-in”! Fill your pool with inflatable lounge chairs and inner-tubes. Then, move your big-screen TV outside or rent a projector and screen for the night. Pick a new release to watch, or try “Finding Nemo” for the kids. Don’t forget to serve movie snacks! Buttered popcorn, nachos, soda and candy are always a hit!

Invite your “special someone” for a romantic evening by the pool, or invite a few couples over for a party under the stars. Fill your pool with floating candles and rose petals, and line the edges of the pool with tea lights. You can also hang strands of white lights from the trees. Don’t forget to set the mood with some romantic music. Instead of serving dinner, set up a chocolate fondue fountain with fresh fruit.

Try out this fun and easy party theme! Line your pool with Mexican blankets and sombreros, and set up small tables with paper flowers as the centerpieces. Hang a candy-filled piñata from a tree and invite guests to take a swing. You can also set up a backyard dance floor and hire a dance instructor to give Salsa lessons. For dinner, grill up fajitas on the barbeque and serve with sour cream and guacamole…and of course chips and salsa!

Why make a long drive to the beach when your very own pool serves as the perfect centerpiece for a backyard beach party? Use sea shells and beach umbrellas to decorate the backyard, and cover the grass with bright colored towels and giant beach balls. Throw some balls into the pool too, or float some toy boats in the water. Heat up the barbeque and grill hotdogs, hamburgers and veggie burgers. Serve with corn on the cob, potato salad and fresh-squeezed lemonade…and popsicles for dessert!


After your pool has been completed, you have to decide on the best way to maintain it so that stays clean, safe, and fun for everyone to enjoy. The easiest way to maintain your pool is to hire a reliable pool maintenance professional to do most of the maintaining for you. Ask your friends, neighbors, and family who own pools for their recommendations and remember that you're looking for someone who is trustworthy, thorough, and responsible. After shopping around and considering your options, you'll be able to decide which service will best meet your needs.
If you prefer to maintain your pool yourself or if you want to be sure that the pool maintenance professional you've hired properly cares for your pool, you will need to adhere to a maintenance schedule. The following is a good guide.
