Summer is in full swing and you may be planning some pool parties.

These products and tips will help ensure your pool is ready to go!


First, in preparation for a party make sure you have a clean filter.

Remember to watch the PSI to know when it is time to clean your cartridge or sand filter.  The PSI will increase by 8 to 10 above your baseline when it is time to clean.

If you need a refresher on how to clean your filter click on these links.

Sand Filter

To keep your filter and pool in top condition all year use Nature’s Pure Water Polish.

Water Polish is a 4 in 1 product that removes oils, metals, organic matter, and phosphates from your pool and filter.  Using this product as a part of your routine will make it much easier to keep your filter clean because it helps to break up the oils and lotions that swimmers bring into your pool.  For more Information Click Here.

Second, have you ever heard of Party Shock?

Party Shock is another name for Non-Chlorine shock.  We carry a few brands of this shock.  Pristine Power, Poolife Quick Swim Oxidizer, and Nature’s Pure Oxidizing Shock.

These shocks are great right before or after you have a high bather load (aka party).

You can swim after 15 minutes of applying any of these shocks and they help make your water sparkly and clear!

Finally, make sure you are regularly testing and balancing your pool water. 

This is important for a few reasons.

1. If your pool is out of balance it can cause your tablets, shock, and minerals to not work 100% effectively. This means you run a higher risk of your pool not being in pristine condition.

2. Out of balance water can be irritating to your skin, hair, and eyes.

3. If water goes unbalanced for long enough it can even effect your liner, pump, or filter.
