Hidden water pools are considered to be the swimming pool to have in your backyard. The water is stored within a reservoir when the decorative concrete base is raised. This keeps the water within the hidden water swimming pool from being constantly exposed to the UV rays of the sun. The maintenance cost of hidden water pool tends to be much lower than a traditional swimming pool.
Traditional pools require the water to be tested once a week to determine if the pH balance is correct. With a hidden water pool, weekly testing is not necessary if the water is kept in the reservoir when not in use. This keeps the sodium hypochlorite levels and the growth of algae and bacteria to a minimum.
Just like with traditional pools, additional chemicals will need to be used such as chlorine. Chlorine can be found in liquid, tablet or powder form. The tablets are the best choice for your hidden water pool as they dissolve slowly over time and make the hidden water pool maintenance expense go down even lower.
While it is difficult to truly predict the actual hidden water pool maintenance cost, it is safe to say that it is significantly less than a traditional pool. The cost will determine how often the hidden water pool is used and how long the water within the pool is exposed to the UV rays of the sun.
When you install your hidden water pool, go over a maintenance plan with the company installing the pool. They will be able to give you the full scope and timeframes needed to keep your pool clean and free of any unwanted debris and microscopic organisms that would be harmful to you.
