It’s no surprise that so many homeowners in Florida decide to add a pool to their properties. After all, they offer so much — who wouldn’t love the thought of having a feature that boosts physical and mental well-being on their properties? Plus, they can seriously elevate the property’s fun credentials, too.

It’s important to keep in mind, however, that swimming pools are big responsibilities. They’re inherently dangerous and require significant upkeep to stay in full working condition. In this post, we’ll run through some common mistakes pool owners make. Make sure you’re not guilty of any of them!

Failing to Establish Rules

A swimming pool will add great fun to your property, but only if rules are followed. Some homeowners make the mistake of having no rules whatsoever, which increases the likelihood of an injury or the pool becoming damaged. Establishing pool rules early on is important, rather than waiting until something happens. For instance, depending on your pool, you may have rules regarding how many people can be in there at once, instructions for getting in and out of the pool (use the ladder!), and general pool behavior.

Ignoring Laws

You’ll be thinking of your swimming pool in terms of all the good times that it can provide. However, the law will view your swimming pool in different terms. They’ll be looking at your pool solely from a legal perspective, so unless you want any issues with law enforcement, it’s essential to take steps to ensure that you’re fully compliant. The legal requirements for your pool will depend on where it’s located. In Florida, the swimming pool must be separated from the main house by an enclosure and have an approved safety cover. Doors and windows surrounding the pool must have self-closing mechanisms and be equipped with an exit alarm.

Overlooking Maintenance

It would be nice if your swimming pool would just look after itself, but that’s not the case. They require plenty of upkeep and maintenance. As such, investing in your swimming pool’s maintenance is essential. You can take the stress out of this task by working with a company that offers a full range of pool maintenance services.

Fixing Problems Themselves

If you have a pool for long enough, then it’s inevitable that you’ll run into a problem. Any number of issues can happen with a pool! Though it’s tempting to fix problems yourself, you mustn’t do. Many homeowners think they can solve a problem just by following along with a YouTube tutorial, but things can quickly get out of hand. At that stage, the problem will be bigger than it was initially and may require more money, time, and effort to fix. It’s best just to focus on enjoying your pool and let the professionals handle the work.
