I’ve noticed that when the air temperatures reach 100 degrees for several days in a row my pool water loses some of it’s clarity and I also find I have to brush the sides of the pool more frequently. Is that normal? Or should I be adding additional pool maintenance tasks when the temperatures soar during the hot summer months. Should I be increasing the amount of time I’m running the filter daily during hot spells?
Yes to both. Additional chlorine and time running the pump will help when the temperatures soar. High heat and UV can cause the chlorine to degrade more quickly and the pump can help to keep the chlorine in all the areas of the pool while it is hottest.
