If good maintenance has been carried out, the water in the glass can be kept 4-6 seasons thus reducing water consumption. This also depends on the origin of the water: it will last less if it comes from a well and longer if it is water from the mountains or previously treated. In any case, the important thing is measure isocyanuric acid saturation (it accumulates over the years due to treatment with non-liquid chlorine). If the level is above 75 ppm, it will have to be renewed, to comply with current regulations.

Although the water does not yet reach 75 ppm, it is also possible to carry out a partial emptying 30% or 50% to improve your concentration and thus bet on more efficient consumption. Another reason that may make it necessary to change it is that a crack or loose tile that needs to be repaired has been detected. If this is the case, it is advisable to take advantage of this moment to carry out a deep cleaning of the glass.

In the event that a complete emptying of the vessel is necessary, it can be reuse the water to water the plants. Of course, it must be taken into account that the water must be free, not only of chlorine, but of other traces of chemical products. Normally, with the rest of the water for a month and thanks to the evaporation and the sun, all the chemical products are diluted. However, it is convenient to analyze this water to check that its level of disinfectants is minimal. must have a value less than 0.3 mg of chlorine per liter of water and in the case of active oxygen you simply have to wait for the active substance to disappear.

Water level.

If wintering has been carried out for cold areas, with the water below the skimmersit’s time to fill the pool until they are three-quarters covered. Once the appropriate level has been reached and, depending on the type of glass, a sand washing in the filter and in the suction circuits and a subsequent rinse, in a closed circuit. It is important to remember that the selector valve handle can only be operated when the engine is stopped. Carrying out correct maintenance of the installation is one of the most effective ways of carrying out a efficient consumption of our pool.

pH monitoring

Once the pool is full it is necessary recheck pH, before proceeding to shock treatment. This step is important for the effectiveness of the treatment to be optimal. If necessary, use acidity regulator product. To eliminate all germs and have the pool ready for the first swim, we recommend carrying out a shock treatment with quick chlorine tablets that will remove all germs and contaminants from the water. You can also complete this preventive treatment with algaecideif deemed necessary.

In those cases where the water is cloudy, it is also advisable to add flocculant product that eliminates residues and improves the filtering work. There are products of combined action to carry out this treatment in an integral way. Before finishing this phase, a new pH control should be carried out. After 24 hours of carrying out the first shock chlorination, with the filtering in operation, the pH must be checked again, to verify that it is in the optimum range. If this is not the case, an acidity regulator product will have to be used and, once these levels have been reached, the pool will be ready for use.

Periodic control.

Once the bathing season has begun, all you have to do is regular checks to confirm that the water maintains optimum quality. With this table you will be able to know the optimal levels of pH, temperature, disinfectant, alkalinity… In the event that the pool water is not between these scales, the pertinent corrective measures must be applied for each parameter.

Also, using photovoltaic power sources, controlling the lighting of the premises, adapting the operation of the facilities to the number of users and the environmental conditions and monitoring the energy consumption of the auxiliary facilities: changing rooms, control rooms, etc. we can make efficient use of swimming pools.

In particular, as explained by Abrisud, the use of a cover reduces water evaporation by up to 80%, allowing a energy savings of between 50% and 70% and, on the other hand, they estimate that the installation of a swimming pool cover in a hotel or campsite supposes a increase in profitability of between 20% and 30%, both due to the increase in users and a more efficient use of the facility. Thus, by following these simple tips, our pool will be ready to be enjoyed efficiently and respecting the environment.
