Spread the love

Many of us look forward to the warm months of the year, when we can lounge by the pool with a drink in hand and perhaps even a friendly game of pool on the terrace lined with tropical plants and colorful umbrellas. But the reality is that we have to contend with harsh water conditions that can leave our pool looking less like a dream and more like a scene from a movie about the bubonic plague. The reality is that the water in our pool can be a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in frequent colds and flu outbreaks as well as an overall miserable feeling when lounging by the pool.

So how can we make our pool experience more like a pleasure, and what can we do to prevent microbial growth in the water surrounding it? These are some of the most common questions we get from friends and family trying to make their pool experience “oasis-like” as they say, and we get them because the information below can seriously help improve their pool experience. Keep reading for some tips on how to soften pool water for maximum pleasure in and around your pool.

Use The Proper Drainage System

If you have an open-air swimming pool with no overhead pipes or gutters surrounding it, then you are completely at the mercy of nature, as it is going to rain and thunderstorms are going to ruin your pool. But just because there are no pipes or gutters doesn’t mean that you have to suffer through days of rain that turns your pool into a small pond. You can prevent this by investing in a proper drainage and filtration system. This is especially important if you have any sort of an issue with your pool that leads to it looking more like a lake than a small pond. Remember, the best defense against any kind of microbial growth in your pool is proper filtration and adequate drainage.

Check For Leaks

Even after you have done all of that, you can’t be sure that your pool is completely free of leaks. While you are relaxing and enjoying your time in the pool, water can continue to seep in and collect around the base, leading to further bacterial growth and an overall slimy feeling. To stop this, you will need to search for and fix any leaks that you find, whether it is a little drip that collects at the base of the wall or a slow steady stream that appears to come from nowhere in particular. This can be a time-consuming process that requires some serious pool maintenance, but it will be worth it in the end if you want to keep your pool pristine.

Get A Water Purifier

If you truly want to keep your pool water clean and fresh, then you have to invest in a water purifier. These devices remove particles from the water as it passes through, resulting in crystal-clear pool water. They also keep pathogens at bay due to their advanced technology.

The best part is that they are easy to use and install, as all you need is a supply of clean water and electricity (for those that are battery operated) and you can start enjoying crystal-clear pool water.

Change The Wading Depth

Depending on the size of your pool, you will have to determine how deep you want your wading pool to be. When using a wading pool, the shallower it is, the more inviting it will seem to the little ones. However, if you have a bigger pool, then you might want to consider changing the design so that it is a little deeper. This will help protect you from injuries due to falling in the pool or slipping on the wet ground surrounding it. Just remember that if your pond is deeper than it is wide, then it will be a lot easier for kids to fall in and it will be harder for those over the age of five to climb out again.

Consider Surfaces

Depending on the size of your pool, you will need to determine what surface you want it to have. If you have a Jacuzzi in your pool, then you can consider having a concrete or vinyl liner around it so that you can have a relaxing and luxurious time in the water. If you want a touch of the outdoors in your pool, then you can use pebbles or crushed coral for the base, which will make the water look more like a natural spring than a plastic pool filled with tap water.

If you truly want to make your pool experience more like an oasis, then you have to consider the surfaces around it. Just because there are no pipes or gutters surrounding your pool does not mean that it is free from bacteria growth that can make you sick. Be sure to regularly clean and disinfect the area around your pool, and consider the type of surface that will make it a pleasure to lounge around in the water.

Install A Solar Blanket

If you truly want to enjoy the outdoors even though you live in a warm climate, then you can invest in a solar blanket. These devices are usually large and fluffy, which makes them look like giant marshmallows. When they are in the sun, they trap heat that is then transferred to your pool to warm it up during the winter months. As a result, you can enjoy your pool at any time of the year, even in the colder months when you would normally have to heat it yourself.

So, as you can see, there are many ways you can make the most of your outdoor space and enjoy the sun while staying healthy and feeling comfortable in your own backyard. By taking into consideration all of the aspects listed above, you can truly transform your pool experience from something that is unpleasant and unhealthy to something that is peaceful and therapeutic. Just remember to do your research before you make any kind of purchase, as some products need much more maintenance than others. And last but not least, have fun! Creating an oasis in your pool should not be difficult, and it is definitely within your reach if you follow the tips from this article. So go ahead, enjoy your pool and its surrounding areas without any fear or anxiety, because here is to the relaxation and joy of it all.
