Old Man Winter has finally released his strangle hold on the weather. Spring has sprung here in Maryland. The temperature is noticeably warmer and, as a result, people are making their way outdoors. Barbeque season is upon us, which means swimming pool season is not far behind.
Preparing Your Pool for Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day (May 25th) weekend is the time when many swimming pools are first opened for the season, which makes early spring the perfect time to address swimming pool lighting and equipment maintenance. While many homeowners will spend this time worrying about leaves and dirt, pool chemicals, cracks in their pool deck, smart homeowners address another key concern: pool equipment and lighting.
Pool Equipment Maintenance
Since 2003, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has reported 14 deaths related to swimming pool electrocutions. For this reason, allpools should be inspected before Memorial Day. Aging electrical wiring, faulty underwater lighting, sump pumps, vacuums, and other electrical equipment require periodic inspections to ensure everything is working properly, up to code, and protected by Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters (GFCIs) – the best safety device to prevent electrocution.
Swimming Pool Lighting
With a few upgrades you could not only find yourself enjoying your pool at night, but you could also completely transform the look and feel of your landscape. The right lighting features on a swimming pool can transform your backyard into a resort-like atmosphere. Is it time for you to upgrade your pool lighting?
