Swimming pool maintenance tips
All swimming pools require a servicing, maintenance and refurbishment programme over their lifetime, in order to keep them looking attractive, healthy and safe for bathers. At London Swimming Pool Company we believe this works best when private pool owners and/or their property managers take care of basic elements of pool care with the back-up of regular service visits from a professional pool engineer.
Whether you're an ‘old hand’ who understands the basics or you've just acquired your pool, there is always more to know. To help, each month we will provide information that can help you get to grips with a range of pool care topics. Our helpful tips range from the all-important need to find the best pool engineer for your needs to spotting problems that could become detrimental to the health of the pool if left unchecked for a long period, so check back regularly to view our latest tips and advice. We hope you find our pool care tips helpful and welcome any feedback.
