Having a home with a swimming pool is a major accomplishment in one’s life. As a pool owner you can take pride in it. As a pool owner you should understand all aspects of maintaining the pool, even if you hire a company to help with the maintenance. On a weekly basis you need to test the water chemistry and do the basic maintenance of the swimming pool. This might include skimming of leaves, emptying of skimmer and pump baskets and backwashing or cleaning the filter.
