Pool Cleaning Checklist for Palm Beach County Area Pools

For those of us who own a home in Palm Beach County ( Boca Raton and West Boca to Lake Worth and West Palm Beach area ), a swimming pool in the backyard basically comes with the territory. Right now there are approximately 5,000 pools in Delray Beach alone! Not only do pools add value to your home but they also provide an oasis for yourself, family, and friends to escape from the heat and the daily rigours of life. Pool maintenance should be pretty easy – after all it’s just water right? Not so fast! There are a lot of little details required to ensure your family is diving into a crystal clear swimming pool. Some of these details you might have never thought of. In order to help you in the care of your pool, we have come up with a pool maintenance checklist. Follow it closely and you can be assured your Palm Beach County area swimming pool cleaning is ready to dive in year round!
