How do You Take Care of a Pool After Resurfacing?
After resurfacing a pool, it’s important to take care of it properly to ensure that the new surface lasts as long as possible. Here are some steps you can follow to take care of your newly resurfaced pool:
Fill the pool: Once the resurfacing is complete, the pool will need to be filled with water. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for filling the pool.
Check the chemical levels: After the pool is filled, test the chemical levels of the water. The pH level should be between 7.2 and 7.8, and the total alkalinity should be between 80 and 120 ppm. Adjust the levels as needed to achieve these ranges.
Clean the pool filter: The pool filter may have accumulated debris during the resurfacing process. Clean the filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Maintain chemical levels: Keep a close eye on the chemical levels in the pool, and add chemicals as needed to maintain the proper balance. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for adding chemicals.
Avoid draining the pool: Avoid draining the pool for at least 28 days after resurfacing. This will allow the surface to cure properly and prevent damage to the new surface.
Keep the pool clean: Regularly skim the surface of the pool to remove debris, and vacuum the pool floor as needed to keep it clean.
By following these steps, you can help ensure that your newly resurfaced pool stays in great condition for years to come. If you would like a FREE, No Obligation estimate, please feel free to reach out to us.
