Swimming pool and spa owners can create the ultimate “Staycation”

If worries about the global economy have got you down, a swimming pool can help you arrange a great and memorable staycation, a word that just so happens to have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary at the end of August.

A recent survey also found that more Canadians were choosing to have a “staycation”; staying at home instead of traveling abroad. With a hot tub, indoor pool or outdoor pool, your staycation can be that much better – as long as your equipment is maintained properly – because a staycation can also result in increased pool and hot tub usage.

Thus, proper water testing is important for maintaining a clean and healthy pool and spa, first and foremost, especially with increased usage. Pool water testing kits are easy to use, and will let you know what type of adjustments your pool and/or hot tub water needs if it’s out of balance.

When obtaining a water sample, hold the testing kit well below the water surface in order to get a more accurate sample.  Backwashing the filter, frequent vacuuming, brushing and cleaning the individual pool components along with the proper use of chemicals will also keep it in good shape until the end of the season.

Some pool and spa companies offer inexpensive weekly pool maintenance services that will take the pressure off of the average homeowner who just wants to relax and enjoy their swimming pool, worry-free.  Setting up a proper maintenance schedule can keep your pool or spa running effectively even with the added use and enjoyment of a planned staycation.
