While on vacation, debris and bacteria can collect in your pool and upset the water balance. Consider a "vacation plan" to prevent problems so you can come home to a clear pool and not a messy surprise.
- Contact California Pools for a vacation maintenance plan. (We can give you instructions based on your specific BioGuard Program.)
- Clean your pool thoroughly, brushing and vacuuming walls and floors.
- Test pool water and make sure it's properly balanced. Anything that's out of balance-total alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness-will likely get worse when left unattended.
- Run your pump at least eight hours a day to help prevent algae and bacteria growth. (Either set your timer or ask a neighbor to turn it on and off.)
Upon returning, have California Pools perform a water analysis to ensure that your pool is properly balanced and ready for swimming.
