How Often Should I Change Pool Water?

When changing your pool water, several factors come into play such as its size, number of swimmers, and local weather conditions.

As a general guideline, it is recommended to drain and refill your pool water every 3-5 years. Additionally, using a testing kit to check the chemical balance of the water may be beneficial; if pH levels are consistently off or if it appears cloudy, more frequent changes may be needed.

Additionally, if you detect a strong chemical odor or feel the water feels slimy or sticky, it could be indicative of needing to change the water. Furthermore, keep an eye out for algae buildup as excessive growth could indicate poor water quality and necessitate changing your supply.

In conclusion, although the frequency of changing your pool water may differ depending on factors specific to your pool and environment, a good rule of thumb is to completely drain and refill the water every 3 to 5 years and regularly test and monitor its chemical balance and overall quality.
