It is definitely fun to swim in your private pool during summers. A private pool in your backyard gives you a lot of flexibility and lets you have hours of non-stop fun, swimming and enjoying water sports with your friends or kids.

Here are 7 tips to help you keep your pool clean and healthy -

You can install an automatic cleaner in your pool for effectively removing the small particles in the water. Make use of a net for removing the leaves and twigs that may have fallen inside the pool.

  1. Chlorine is very important for your pool. It helps kill the micro organisms like bacteria and disinfects the pool thoroughly. Buy chlorine based products and try to add them after sun set when chlorine works more effectively.

  1. Test the pH level of your pool water. A pH level that is between 7.4 and 7.6 pH is desirable in swimming pools. Having a pH level above 8 or below 7 can cause problems to the swimmers and can also affect the quality of the water.

  1. Stale water can lead to the growth of algae and bacteria in your swimming pool. Make sure that you change the water frequently to prevent algae and bacteria from setting in and making your pool green and unhealthy.
