Rain Affects Your Pool

4 Ways Spring Rains Affect Your Pool

No doubt, this has been an odd winter for most of the country. And thankfully, it won’t be too long before Mother Nature ushers out Old Man Winter. Once Spring arrives, we can expect rain. Spring rains can affect your pool, and your pool’s water. Here’s four ways spring rains affect your pool.

Rain is acidic: Because rain is acidic, it lowers the pH of your swimming pool water.  Acidic water can damage your pool’s heat pump and filtration system. Additionally, acidic water irritates the eyes and skin.  Rain also brings contaminants from the atmosphere and leaves and twigs from nearby trees.  This additional debris can incrementally affect your pool water’s pH, clog the filter and cause more problems if not addressed.
