Above-ground Pool Care Guide

    Structural Upkeep

    • Regularly check all bolts, screws and fittings on the outside of the pool and in the pool liner to prevent leakage and keep the structure free of protrusions that may harm swimmers. Cover fittings with clear lacquer to protect them from the elements, and regularly wax the pool surfaces to guard against wear and keep the structure attractive.

    Water Filtering

    • Even if a pool is covered when not in use, particles of dirt and dust are carried in the water. A good filtering system removes these substances and requires regular maintenance for optimum performance.

    Chemical Additives

    • Pool water must be be chemically balanced to prevent growth of bacteria and algae. The water should be tested before you add chemicals to determine what additives are appropriate. Perform periodic water analysis to make sure the chemical levels remain stable.
