Keep Your Water Tested

Maintaining a body of water is an ongoing activity. If you’ve ever owned a fish tank, you know how often it needs your attention to remain pristine. Your pool needs regular attention in the same way.

Test your water throughout the week so you know what chemicals and treatments it needs to remain balanced. If you use your pool daily during the summer, test it daily. New pool owners in Pocatello love to take advantage of our free pool water testing at Mastercraft Pool & Spa. Our pool experts can help you understand exactly what your pool needs at any given time.

Small Regular Maintenance Prevents Big Maintenance

Keeping a regular water care and maintenance routine prevents water issues in your pool before they can form. For example, clear your pool debris daily and run your pump a minimum of 8 hours a day. Brush your pool twice a week and vacuum it throughout the week and as needed. When new pool owners make a habit of water maintenance activities like these, the pool is always ready for a pool party.
