What is a Custom In-Ground Pool?
Although an in-ground pool may appear to be a solid, unmovable structure, it actually works in a similar way to a boat by floating on the surrounding ground water. Since the ground water can push the pool structure up and out of the water if it is empty, pools are generally filled with water all year-round. This creates a pressure which is almost equal on both sides of the pool and maintains it in position.
Will I need a Hydro-static Valve?
A hydro-static c valve is used near the main drain in order to protect the pool structure from damage from the ground water pressure. It is fitted on most modern in-ground pools. The valves operate by means of a float. If the ground water pressure is too great it will push on a float which then opens the valve and allows the ground water to flow in and equalize the pressure.
Is a Custom In-Ground Pool and Spa Difficult to Maintain?
Provided that you follow manufacturer’s instructions having a custom built in-ground pool and spa, Boynton Beach should be relatively easy. Here are some suggestions for maintaining your pool:
1. Check the pH and chlorine levels of the pool twice a week.
We recommend that the pool water should be in a range of pH of 7.4 to 7.6 with a chlorine level of 1.0 to 3.0 parts per million (ppm). The best time to test the pool is at least four hours after any guests have used the pool and a minimum of eight hours after a wind or rain storm. If the levels are not within this range, the pool can be rebalanced by using chemical products and following the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. The waterline on the pool walls should be cleaned on a weekly basis, or as required, using a pool surface cleaner.
The cleaners will help you to maintain the appearance of your pool. It is best to apply the cleaner using a pool brush. Apart from cleaning the walls at the waterline surface it can also be used on the walls below the surface.
3. Use a skimmer basket to remove leaves and debris from the water.
If there is any debris at the bottom of an in-ground pool this can be removed using a special vacuum cleaner designed specifically for pool use.
4. Shocking the pool on a weekly basis can promote the elimination of algae and other contaminants.
Shocking involves adding a large dose of chlorine to the pool but will vary from product to product so make sure that you read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Swimming should be avoided for at least 24 hours after shocking a pool.
5 Using a filtration system can prevent the water being contaminated with dust, dirt, environmental pollutants, bacteria and body oils.
However, as this can use up considerable electricity it may be necessary to use it on an intermittent basis only at times when the pool is having less usage.
