Running a commercial pool is a big responsibility. As the owner of this (soon-to-be) summer paradise, you have to make sure your pool is well-maintained for the sake of your business and your customers. ecoFINISH has worked closely with many pool owners over the years, and we’ve picked up some great tips on how to take better care of your commercial pool along the way.
Train Your Staff
Caring for a commercial pool isn’t a one-man or woman job. Everybody should be aware and trained on standard operating procedures. This makes the process and your team as a whole more efficient. The best time to train your staff on correct cleaning processes is during the off-season. This way, they’ll be ready to hit the ground running when the pool gates open.
Stock Up on Cleaning Equipment
Of course, you can’t expect your pool to be in perfect condition if your team doesn’t have the right tools for the job. Stock up on all the cleaning equipment you need before you open your pool this spring. It’s like the saying goes, “Better to be safe than sorry.”
Clean Pool Water Regularly
Although summer is still a long way away, it’s always good to brush up on the importance of cleaning your pool water regularly. When the summer days become unbearable, the whole town will show up to enjoy a break from the heat at your commercial pool. You can imagine how quickly the pool water gets dirty when you have 10, 30, or 50 people in the pool at once. That’s why your lifeguards should be checking the quality of the pool water regularly, and adjusting the pH level when necessary.
Don’t Skip Maintenance
It doesn’t matter if your commercial pool is open for everyone to enjoy or closed for the off-season. Maintenance is a year-round chore, and you have to stay on top of it unless you want to see your most precious investment ruined before your very eyes.
You can’t expect your pool to stay in pristine condition forever. Every piece of equipment has its designated lifespan, even your aquatic coating.
