Some of the hottest days of summer are here upon us! One of the BEST ways to COOL things down while the days are getting HOT is taking a dip in your backyard pool. Don’t make the mistake of neglecting your pool water. Here at NALA Industries, we want to help you enjoy the refreshing dips into your backyard retreat. The following are some quick and easy ways for you to keep your pool cool in these hot summer months.
Keep the Water Circulating
Water fountains serve more than just beauty, they offer a functional purpose too. From a statuesque figurine to a waterfall, there are endless options to fit your personal style. Turn the fountain off during the day and run it in the evening and through the night to help circulate cool air throughout the water.
Use an Aerator
Just like with a fountain, the aerator will cool the pool most effectively when turned on at night. A pool aerator is an attachment that screws on to the existing pool return line and sprays a fountain of water into the pool using the pool’s pump. The water then cools down thanks to the oxygen from the droplets of water sprayed through the air. This can lower the temperature of the pool by a few degrees, which can make a huge and noticeable difference. Aerators work best drier climates, but they can also be very effective in a more humid climate.
If your pool has more than one return line, you can even install more than one aerator for additional cooling.
Cover Your Swimming Pool
Be sure to cover your pool when not in use. Covering your swimming pool won’t lower the temperature of your pool drastically, but it will prevent the water from getting warmer. Pool covers do not have to be expensive and will easily keep your pool exactly the way you want it. Many are extremely easy to use, too!
Use a Pool Mister
An easy and inexpensive way to quickly lower the water temperature of your pool, similar to an aerator, is to add a mister. The constant mist leads to quick evaporation and in turn cooler water temperatures. As a bonus, the kids will love playing in the spraying water. Run the mister at night for even more significant cooling. It doesn’t require a separate source of water and produces an evaporative cooling curtain to compensate for the water that evaporates.
By following these tips, you will able to cool or maintain the cool temperature of your pool. Make a SPLASH in your neighborhood and grill some food, grab the refreshing drinks, and invite a couple of family and friends for an unforgettable and relaxing summer.
