To reduce buildup, be sure to wipe down the tile often.

  1. Keep an active eye on the level of the pool to guarantee water level.
  2. Cleaning your filters is a MUST! Your filters especially need cleaned after a heavy storm. This is something that doesn’t need to be done often, so it’s easy to forget! Try doing this ever 4-6 months. Make a memo on the calendar if it helps!
