Florida is hot. It is muggy. It has bugs and foliage everywhere. Sounds like a pool owners nightmare if all of this stuff ends up affecting the color and quality of the water that your kids swim in. Have you ever seen a pool with tadpoles swimming around? It can be a little disconcerting or it can be loads of fun if you are pretending you are at the local swimming hole! Once when I went on vacation my pool had been neglected for 3 weeks too long. It had gone from green, to dark green, and finally on to black. Mutant tadpoles hid under the carpet of leaves on the bottom and water bugs came up every once and a while for air. Great for an estuary but not so great for having company come over for swimming lessons. This year my kids are going to learn how to swim so I need to make sure they (or I ) won’t have anything to worry about when they hop into the water blowing bubbles with pride. It can be done easily in 4 steps with HTH Pool Care. hth

Easily Maintaining A Pool In Florida

  1. Balance: You need to know what the ph levels are before you can figure out how to fix the problem.
  2. Sanitize: HTH® Pool Care has 2 types of chlorine based sanitizers. This is what you would use to make sure your water is nice & clean. You can keep the tadpoles and algae out for the summer with a regular routine.
  3. Shock: You should shock your pool at least once a week in order to keep the odors out and to keep your eyes from burning. The shock treatment takes care of the chloramines.
  4. Prevent Algae: See the pool below. This is the beginnings of a disaster!
