Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer. Swim spa specialists Ben Gilliam and Mari Cuticelli share how you can make the most of the weekend and summer months to come.
Whether that means you're having a barbecue or planning a backyard project, the long weekend is made for enjoying time in your swim spa. You can relax against the jets after a day of yard work or let the kids splash around with friends. You can also use your swim-in-place pool to kick off training for a summer event, like a triathlon.
However, if you plan to use your spa more, there are a few steps to make sure your water stays clean and clear.
In this video, Ben and Mari share the best way to get sand and debris out of the swim spa; when to drain the water; and the one thing to watch out for.
Spoiler alert: It's sunscreen.
They also answer viewer questions, including:
