Avoid Mosquito Infestations Around Your Pool

Pools can be tricky beasts to care for, taking up a lot of time, effort, and maintenance. Without careful management, you could wind up with a pool that is slowly falling apart at the seams. For instance, your pool’s plaster could disintegrate, leaving you and your loved ones in danger of injuries. Your pool’s coping and tile may break; this could lead to bloody toes and feet, as well as a too-hot surface.

Another health hazard that could develop is a possible mosquito infestation. Mosquitos are particularly dangerous in that they spread many diseases, such as the West Nile or Zuka virus. Most unfortunate of all, they thrive in places with dirty, stagnant water, such as pools. Mosquitos lay their larvae in this water, which grow to maturity to form other mosquitos and thus spread more disease.

To avoid this, you must ensure your pool has the right amount of chlorine. The rule of thumb is one ounce of chlorine per 75,000 gallons of water. Your pool’s pH should ideally be around 7; anything higher than 8 can lead to skin rashes. You should also ensure your pool’s filter is working as it should and make any necessary repairs, as that could be the cause of dirty pool water.

If you happen to have a saltwater pool, you pass water through a salt-chlorine generator instead of adding chlorine tablets. If the pH drops too low, then adding muriatic acid is recommended. Otherwise, you could be faced with skin irritation and other adverse effects.
