What Causes A Swimming Pool To Lose Its Sparkle?

The glow of a newly installed pool will inevitably lose its shine. Weathering, falling behind on scheduled maintenance, and repair issues can all result in the dull appearance of your once pristine backyard pool. However, not all hope is lost if you’re looking to restore your pool back to its former glory! Here are 5 tips to brighten your pool.

Balance Your Chemicals To Return Your Pool’s Glow

The most common cause for a pool’s dull, discolored or murky appearance is usually a chemical imbalance. Thankfully, most chemical issues are easy to address and correct within a few days. Start your diagnosis by testing the water, recording cyanuric acid, free chlorine, acidity, total alkalinity, and calcium hardness. 

Shock The Water In Times Of Need

A chlorine shock can do wonders for your pool and return it to its former shine! If your pool has transformed into a green petri dish of water, it is probably time to consider removing harmful algae, bacteria, and dirt with a high dose of chlorine.

Waterfall lights: add instant appeal to your pool with waterfall lights. These come in built-in or stick-on options in a range of designs to suit any style of pool.

Pool spotlights: These lighting features can create an overall brighter appearance when placed strategically around the area. Spotlights are also available in various colors, allowing for complete customization.

Touch Up Your Pool’s Surface To Bring Color Back To Your Pool

Pools require a new finish every few years, depending on weathering, usage, and general upkeep. Once the finish begins to deteriorate, the pool’s water can become cloudy. Many pool owners use this time to also experiment with new colors and designs to bring a new look to their pool. For example, swapping out a darker shade for brighter tones can better reflect the sunlight and brighten your pool.
