As the scorching summer heat descends upon Brisbane, so does the likelihood of heavy rainfall, bringing relief to both residents and their pools. However, this weather dynamic can pose unique challenges for pool owners. La Vida Pools and Spas, your trusted pool builders in Brisbane, would like to share essential tips on how to care for your pool during heavy rainfall in the summer season.

1. Balance Your Pool Chemistry:
Heavy rainfall can significantly impact the chemical balance of your pool water. Dilution due to rain can alter pH, chlorine levels, and other essential chemicals. Regularly test and adjust the water chemistry to ensure a safe and inviting swimming environment.

2. Shock Treatment After Rain:
Following heavy rainfall, consider administering a shock treatment to your pool. This helps neutralise contaminants brought in by rainwater and prevents the growth of algae and bacteria. La Vida Pools and Spas recommends consulting with our experts for the appropriate shock treatment based on your pool’s specifics.

3. Skim and Remove Debris Promptly:
Heavy rain often brings leaves, twigs, and other debris into your pool. Skim the surface regularly to prevent these elements from settling and causing water quality issues. La Vida Pools and Spas emphasises the importance of prompt debris removal to maintain a pristine pool environment.

4. Run Your Pool Pump Longer:
Increase the running time of your pool pump during and after heavy rainfall. This helps in circulating and filtering the water more thoroughly, preventing the buildup of contaminants and aiding in maintaining water clarity. La Vida Pools and Spas’ experts can assist in optimizing your pump settings for maximum efficiency.

5. Use a Pool Cover:
Consider investing in a pool cover to minimise the impact of heavy rainfall. A cover acts as a protective barrier, preventing debris from entering the water and reducing the dilution of pool chemicals. La Vida Pools and Spas offers a range of pool covers suited to your specific needs.

6. Inspect and Maintain Your Pool Equipment:
Ensure that your pool equipment, including filters, pumps, and skimmers, is in optimal condition. Heavy rainfall can strain these components, so regular inspections and maintenance are key. La Vida Pools and Spas’ team is available for professional equipment checks and repairs.

7. Schedule Regular Professional Maintenance:
Enlist the expertise of La Vida Pools and Spas for regular professional pool maintenance. Our experienced team can conduct thorough inspections, address any issues promptly, and provide tailored advice for your pool care needs.
