Get the Most out of Memorial Day

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and for many families that means enjoying a day off out in the sun! If you are planning on entertaining at your backyard pool this weekend, here are 4 ways you can get the most out of your Memorial Day celebrations:

1) Check your chemicals

Improper chemical balance in your water can lead to skin irritation and the discoloration of swimwear. Make sure your pool is ready to go by testing your water frequently and adjusting your chemicals to bring your water back to balance. Rising Sun Pools offers “Drop and Go” water testing at our Raleigh and Garner locations. Simply drop off a water sample, and we’ll analyze the pH and recommend pool treatment chemicals to get your water back in swimming condition.

2) Prep your patio furniture

A few weeks ago, we discussed best practices for beating the pollen prevalent in this area during the spring. Even though pollen season is largely behind us, you can still take advantage of these tips to get your patio furniture into shape for your poolside party!

3) Find grilling inspiration

Nothing makes a backyard pool party shine like delicious food! We collected some of our favorite recipes to grill in our outdoor kitchens to help you plan the perfect party.

4) Stay Safe

May is National Water Safety Month, which means that safety should be the number one priority of your Memorial Day celebrations. By following these helpful tips you can ensure that you and your family have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
