If your commercial business is fortunate enough to have the space and overhead for an indoor pool, you should consider one. Many companies consider it part of a wellness perk for their employees, and if you are selling or renting a building that could be used in the hospitality business, indoor pools are a huge perk. They are beautiful, and when maintained properly, a wonderful addition to the property. However, safety and proper care are special concerns, so make sure the minimum steps are heeded.
Indoor Pool Maintenance Made Incredibly Easy
- Proper safety locks and entry
- Adequate Ventilation
- Chemical Balance
- Cleaning and Inspection
Of course, the first concern of any pool is to be sure nobody drowns. That is always a risk, no matter what barriers are in place. However, makes the pool complete inaccessible except by key or card is one way to cut down on this risk. The pool should be in a room that is not shared with other doorways where children could wander over without their parents being aware.
Chlorine is a toxic gas, and it can cause respiratory difficulty in some people. It’s important to have adequate ventilation in your pool area – both by fans, vents, and perhaps high open and screened windows. Pool rooms tend to be humid, and that is expected, but when they are unbearably loaded with chemicals, it can seriously injure people.
Always check the balance of chemicals in the pool – this protects the pool and the people in the pool! If the pH is either too acidic or too alkaline, it can cause burns to skin and clothing and erode parts of the pool. Samples of the water should be taken every few days, and more often if they are not registering in a normal range.
Vacuuming the pool is important – it’s not enough to just dump in chemicals. This gets rid of larger objects, hair, and any algae that may start to form. This is also a good time to inspect the intake, filter, and electrical parts to make sure they are safe and in working order.
