Keeping pool maintained during the winter by cleaning debris out with a net.

The winter months are here!  Florida enjoys mild temperatures during the winter months.  However, you still need to care for your pool during this time. Keeping your pool maintained during the winter months will ensure that your pool is ready for swimmers. 

Swim ‘N Fun offers these tips for keeping your pool maintained during the winter months:

  • Do NOT drain your pool.  Draining your pool could cause issues that might result in your pool popping out of the ground.
  • Keep your pool cleaned.  Skim leaves and debris, brush the sides, and vacuum your pool to help maintain cleanliness.
  • Make sure that the chemicals are balanced in your pool.  Even if no one is swimming in your pool, keeping it balanced ensures that algae won’t grow.  Plus, it will make it easier to get your pool ready for when people do want to swim.
  • Run the pump. The pump circulates the water and the chemicals throughout the pool which helps to keep the pool clean and blue. This also helps to keep algae from forming in your pool.
  • Make sure to monitor your water level.  Add water to your pool if the water level drops below the skimmers.
  • Remove any pool toys from the pool.  Store them in a dry area to help prevent mildew. 

Swim ‘N Fun wants you to enjoy your pool year-round.  These tips can help keep your pool sparkling blue during the winter months. You can also check out our press release to learn about common pool maintenance mistakes and how to avoid them. If you don’t have time to maintain your pool or don’t want to deal with the hassle, we offer weekly pool maintenance. During your weekly pool maintenance, our pool techs will test your pool water, balance the chemicals, skim the pool, brush the pool walls, empty the baskets, clean or backwash filter, vacuum pool as needed, check the equipment to make sure it is running properly, and will notify you of any issues.  Our service is affordable and has no contract required.

How do you know if you need a pool pump repair?

For example, a pool pump can have many things wrong with it since it has numerous moving parts. The pool pump could have a motor problem, could be leaking, or could be clogged. You might notice that the water in the pool isn’t circulating, isn’t filtering correctly, is leaking out of the bottom of the seal plate, or that the water flow is falling. The water might look cloudy or dirty since it isn’t being filtered correctly. The pump pressure could drop or the motor could be running at a higher pitch than normal.

Pool skimmers also require attention.

Skimmers are important since they help remove debris from your pool and keep it clean. Skimmers can get clogged, leak, or need to have the lid replaced due to wear.

Pool Heaters

Pool heaters tend to give issues if they haven’t been used for a while. Pool owners typically don’t realize there is a problem with the pool heater until November when Florida temperatures drop into the 50’s and 60’s for a daily high. Wiring may be corroded, the pool heater switch may need to be replaced, the heating element may have just burned out due to long-time use. There are a whole host of problems that can arise with pool heaters. Our technicians fix pool heaters.

This is just a sample of the many types of pool repair problems that our technicians have handled. All of these issues and more can be resolved by our highly trained service technicians.

swimming pool with yard debris floating in it from a hurricane

Prime hurricane season is now!

While hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th, the most active time for hurricanes in Florida is from mid-August through the end of October. In fact, 90% of hurricanes occur after August 1st and September 10th is the peak day of hurricane season, statistically.

Hurricanes can wreak havoc on swimming pools! Swim ‘N Fun wants you to be prepared before a storm hits.

Prepare your pool by doing the following:

•Put away loose items such as patio tables, patio chairs, pool toys, grills, and patio umbrellas. Do not store these items in the pool as the pool chemicals could damage them or the items could leave rust stains after removal.
•Turn off the power to the pool. If there is a chance of flooding, wrap exposed electrical equipment in a waterproof cover and make sure it is tied tightly. You can also place sandbags near the equipment to help protect it from the elements.
•If you have a pool cover, leave it off.
•Balance pool chemicals (shock for extra boost).
•Don’t drain the pool. Draining the pool can cause the pool to pop out of the ground.
•Trim tree branches and shrubs that are near the pool. Clean up any debris that could end up in the pool.

How to clean up after the hurricane:

•Clean pool of all debris such as leaves, limbs, and mulch.
•Check the electrical equipment to your pool to make sure that it hasn’t been damaged.
•Turn power back on to re-start pump and filter.
•Make sure to re-set your pump times and circuit breakers if you had lost power during the storm.
•Brush and vacuum the pool to help remove any grime.
•Re-check the pool chemicals. Bring a water sample to Swim ‘N Fun. We will analyze your water for free and let you know what chemicals you need to properly balance your pool. Our 10-point water test checks for pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, free available chorine, total available chlorine, Cyanuric acid, total dissolved solids, metals, phosphates, and salt. We use the latest “Spin Disk” technology for the most accurate water test.
•Continue to monitor your pool to make sure that everything is working properly.

Swim ‘N Fun has been in business since 1986. We are family owned and operated. We are proud to serve our local community. At Swim ‘N Fun, we offer weekly pool maintenance and equipment repairs.

We are open Monday through Friday from 9am until 5pm.  We look forward to serving you.

algae in a swimming pool

Summer is in full swing, how is your pool holding up?

Is it still blue in color? Does it have tints of green yet?

Who wants to swim in a green algae infested pool? Don’t worry, Swim ‘N Fun is here to help. Read on to learn about algae, where it comes from, and how to get rid of it.

What exactly is algae?

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, “algae are plants or plantlike organisms that are chiefly aquatic usually chlorophyll-containing nonvascular organisms.” Algae produces oxygen through photosynthesis and it grows quickly. This causes an issue with your pool as it will turn your pool green and can contaminate your pool water. Algae comes from soil and plant debris and its spores can blow into your pool. Higher temperatures and those daily Central Florida summer thunderstorms can also help introduce algae into your pool. Poor water circulation, lack of balance of pool chemicals, and a dirty filter can all contribute to algae. No matter how it gets there, algae is a nuisance.

How can you get rid of algae?

Proper maintenance of your pool including balanced chemicals and vacuuming your pool can help prevent algae growth. If your pool already is showing signs of that pesky green algae, then follow these steps:
•Vacuum your pool
•Brush the walls, floor, and steps of your pool
•Test the pool water and balance the chemicals
•Shock your pool
•Add algaecide
•Run your filter
•Test the pool water again
•Make sure to clean out your pool filter

We can help fine tune your pool water and combat algae.  Our weekly pool cleaning staff can recommend what chemicals and procedures you will need to do in order to eliminate algae.

Swim ‘N Fun is a full-service pool company. We offer weekly pool maintenance and equipment repairs.  For more information call us at 407-699-5588. We can help you take your pool from green to sparkling clean!

rain water hitting swimming pool

Did you know rain can upset the chemistry of your pool water?

Ah, summer time is almost here! While the weather is heating up, more and more people are spending time in their pools. About this time of year Central Florida starts prepping for its daily thunderstorms and heavy downpours.

Rain water has the potential to dilute a pool’s alkalinity level. This combined with a low pH in pools can really be a problem for your pool’s water. We recommend the moment you notice the color of your pool water starting to change, even just a tint of color change, to bring us a water sample.

After a storm has passed, follow these steps to keep your pool clean and healthy:

•Remove any debris that might have blown into the pool such as twigs and leaves with a net or vacuum
•Clean out the baskets, leaves and debris can clog the water flow
•Brush the sides of the pool and the steps
•Test the chemistry of the water – bring us a water sample
•Often times, pH levels have dropped so you may need to add chemicals to get your pH level back to normal
•Chlorine might need to be added along with shock

Swim ‘N Fun has a wide variety of pool chemicals to maintain your water quality. With the heat and humidity that comes with Florida, coupled with afternoon showers, your pool can quickly turn all shades of green.   We are a full-service pool company serving Central Florida since 1986 and offer weekly pool cleaning and pool repair.  Give us a call if you need help with your pool!  We look forward to helping you with all of your pool needs!
