What happens when you don’t keep water in your in ground pool?

There’s no doubt that summers in the Houston area can be HOT and having an in ground pool is a major plus if you’re a homeowner because this means you can enjoy your pool anytime during the summer months without having to deal with the hassles of an above ground pool.

Even though you may use your in ground pool a lot during the summer, there may be times when you are tempted to not keep your pool filled or to drain your pool during the winter months when it’s not in use but the BIG question is what actually happens to an in ground pool when you don’t keep water in it?

Why You Should Keep Water in Your Pool

Not keeping water in your pool can damage the structural integrity of the pools shell, especially if we have another wet winter because all of the rainwater has to go somewhere and that ground water can also cause your pools shell to heave, pushing it upward out of the ground.

To avoid damaging the structural integrity of your inground pool you should keep some water in it all year long, even if that water begins to look “swampy” because, any repairs to the pool, or cleaning, can still be done to the pool when there’s water in it.

Consider Hiring a Professional Pool Company

Instead of looking at your pool as a liability you should view it as an asset that will only help to increase the value of your home when it comes time for you to sell.

If you don’t have the time to maintain your pool you should consider hiring a professional pool maintenance company because a pro can easily clean the dirtiest pool and make repairs (if needed) without you having to do those tasks yourself.

By Vestpro Residential Services

HOUSTON – Does your Houston Texas Rental Property have a pool and you know that your tenants are ready to start using it?

In today’s post we will share with you 4 tips you can use to get your swimming pool ready for use.

Make Sure Your Pool Is In Great Condition

Before filling your pool you should also confirm that it’s clean and safe for use by both adults and children.

When inspecting your pool you should also review your pool equipment as well to make sure that the operating system for your swimming pool will provide proper flow and suction of water.

Verify Water Chemistry

Once you’ve inspected your swimming pool, and you’ve filled it with water, you should next check the chemistry of your pool water to insure that your pool has the proper P.H, chlorine, calcium and other levels which all swimming pools must have to offer a safe experience for their owners or guests.

Insure That Your Pool Is Safe Before Use

Besides making sure that your Houston Texas Rental Property has a swimming pool which is ready and safe for use, you should also make sure that the pool is also safe especially if there are small children living at the property.

To insure the safety of your pool you should have a fence built around it with a gate because, this will insure that little ones will not be able to find their way into the pool when adults are not looking.

Confirm Proper Signage Around Pool

Last of all, but most important, make sure that your swimming pool is safe for everyone by confirming that it has proper signage on the gate or fence which includes the following information: lifeguard status, rules for the pool, phone location and information on if diving will be allowed at the pool or not.
