Fall doesn’t have to mean fun times in the pool are over. Follow these maintenance tips to ensure your pool is ready for the change of seasons.

Whether you’re fortunate enough to live in a climate where it’s always pool weather or you have a heater to keep the water warm all winter long, there are some key measures you should take to keep your pool in shape for the fall. Follow these simple tips to stay swimming when the leaves start falling.


Stock Up on Essentials

With the start of each new season you should take an inventory of your essential maintenance equipment. This includes inspecting your net, brush, pole, skimmer basket and pump basket to ensure each is functioning properly. Signs that a replacement might be needed include:

● Missing brush bristles

● Broken baskets

● Difficulty adjusting poles

● Ripped nets

By having the right equipment ready to go you’re starting from a solid foundation and setting yourself up for fall pool care success!

Inspect Filter Elements

Cartridge pool filters are among the most common filter types and need to be cleaned and inspected regularly. With the help of Suncoast Spray & Rinse, you can easily remove deeply embedded grease, lotion and other contaminants preventing the cartridge from filtering to the best of its ability. If during cleaning you notice the cartridge retains water, has ripped pleats or has cracks on the plastic ends, a replacement is most likely required.

Thoroughly Clean DE Filters

The advantage of a DE filter is that it filters water to the smallest particle size. While this keeps the water in your pool exceptionally clean, they do require regular maintenance. During summertime when pools are used the most, your DE filter can accumulate a large concentration of dirt, debris and oil.

To ensure your filter is pristine for the fall season, consider performing a split and clean. This can be done by opening the filter container, removing the set of DE grids and hosing them off. During the cleaning, inspect each grid for cracks or rips. Should you find any of these conditions, a grid replacement is recommended.

When finished with the cleaning process, reassemble the DE grid set and pour the required amount of DE powder into the skimmer. If you have questions about the right amount of powder, your local Pinch A Penny store can help you determine what’s right for your pool.

Remove the Leaves

As leaves change colors and begin to fall from the trees it’s a beautiful scene. Not so much for pool owners, though. Leaves and other organic debris in your pool can lead to everything from stains to clogged pumps and filters. Luckily there are leaf nets, skimmer nets, leaf canisters and battery-operated vacuums specifically designed to pick up leaves and remove unwanted debris. We also recommend using Natural Pool Enzyme to eliminate organic material and help the chlorine work more effectively.


Address Surface Stains

If leaves and other materials blowing into the pool have already left their mark, you may be wondering how to get rid of the stains. With a clear photo and a water sample, the experts at your local Pinch A Penny store can help determine the best course of treatment. In most cases, stains from organic materials can be treated with chlorine. Inorganic stains from metals and other elements require a Stain ID Kit to determine the necessary chemicals for treatment.

Prepare the Spa

As steamy summer temperatures start to cool, the spa begins to look a lot more appealing. This transition is the perfect time to make sure everything is clean and working properly. For comprehensive care, consider draining the spa, thoroughly cleaning the tub, inspecting the filter and checking on your startup’s chemical supply.

Whatever the season, Pinch A Penny can help you keep your pool and surrounding areas pristine. We have dozens of different stores near you that offer expert advice as well as services like pressure washing, leak detection and repair.
