On the hot days of summer, when Fido is panting on the porch, you’ll probably be tempted to give him the luxury of a fun little swim. And once you do, it will probably be so contagious that it forms a habit. When you see your dog’s sheer delight at jumping in the water, fetching a toy, jumping out, and shaking himself all over, you’ll be tempted to give him that same fun experience every day. It’s a great way for you to laugh, bond with your dog, and give him some exercise.
Even some cats like to take a little swim once in a while, and if your cat is one of these, you may just spot her taking a little dip in the cool water.
As much fun as it is to play with your pets in the pool, it can create unique circumstances for cleaning your pool, and it’s important to understand these factors to make sure that your pool is kept sparkling clean.
The biggest cleaning requirement is removing hair. If your dog sheds a lot, dog hair can build up in the pool water and accumulate in your pool’s filters. You don’t want to go swimming and emerge from the water with little pet hairs stuck all over your skin. In order to maintain your water’s cleanliness and extend the life of your filters, we recommend that you give your pool a regular maintenance regimen, including vacuuming your pool regularly. Our twice-weekly pool maintenance program will be sure to maintain your pool’s sparkling cleanliness.
The second pool cleaning issue is the fact of chemical interactions between your pet’s body cells, saliva, dirt in its paws, and potential urine in the pool. It’s important to do a regular regimen of the right chemicals in your pool to kill any bacteria that may have been introduced by your fun and games. Our proprietary pool cleaning system is a sure-fire way to keep your pool sparkling clean all the time.
