Named after the Berwick in England, North Berwick is a town in York County, Maine with a population of about 5,000. Part of the Portland-South Portland-Biddeford metropolitan statistical area, North Berwick was first settled in 1693 and incorporated in 1831.
When summer in North Berwick hits, the days get hot enough to merit a swim in a pool. While public pools can be used, not everyone has the time nor money to travel all the way to a public pool to cool off. This is why above ground pools are rising in popularity. Being more affordable and easier to maintain than inground pools, it’s no surprise that a number of residents in North Berwick own, or are planning to own, an above ground pool of their own.
Despite being easier to maintain, above ground pools still require maintenance. This includes shock and algaecide to control the growth of algae. However, there are times when algae still finds its way to your pool. But how do you combat your pool’s algae problem?
To treat the algae in your pool, first adjust the pH to about 7.2 to 7.4. Then, you brush the pool walls thoroughly. Use a shock treatment solution, followed by an algae-treatment formula. You then run the filter for a day or two, all while frequently brushing and vacuuming.
If after the steps above, algae is still present, call Ambassador Pools. Aside from being the best above ground pool provider in the area, Ambassador Pools also have their own pool experts to help you maintain your pool.
