Refer to Your Pool’s Guide

This guide will include critical information about your pool’s equipment, maintenance, cleaning, and more.
Everyone knows that pools require a good amount of maintenance and cleaning to function at their best.
As a new pool owner, it’s your responsibility to monitor the pH levels, filters, drains, and overall cleanliness of your swimming pool.
Enforce Pool Safety
There are many safety hazards that come along with swimming pools, some of which are deadly.
Do your best to encourage and enforce safe behavior when anyone is taking a dip. Always supervise children and pets when around the pool area, and always keep any gates locked to prevent anyone from entering the pool when you’re not around.
Have an Emergency Fund
Buying and building a pool is costly on its own, but it’s advisable to keep an emergency fund in case of any unexpected damages or accidents.
If your pool becomes damaged, it will need to be fixed right away or else you could risk losing the pool as a whole. Having an emergency fund set aside will save you the headache (and heartache).

You might even consider the benefits of a heated pool.
