Pool Maintenance Tips
A task that needs performing daily, skimming is your first step when it comes to weekly pool maintenance. Make sure you use a long-handled leaf skimmer to collect insects, leaves, and other debris floating on the surface.
Also, try to remove debris before it has a chance to sink to the bottom of your pool, where it will become difficult to remove and could result in stains. Do you have trees surrounding your pool? Think about trimming them back to reduce the debris that lands on the water.
Skimming the surface of your pool only takes a couple of minutes and will keep your water looking crystal clear. More importantly, the debris you remove from the top of the water will not have a chance to dirty the bottom or clog up your filtration system.
Brush Sediment Off The Pool Walls
Algae and debris can gather on the walls and pool fixtures – ladders and slides. So make sure that you brush them every week to remove the dirt that will prevent algae from spreading.
Use a brush to remove any dirt collected on the sides and bottom, in addition to the accessories. Brush sediment into the main drain so it can be vacuumed out easily.
Vacuum the Pool
Once the algae and sediment are gone from the walls, they can be vacuumed to remove any other debris sunk to the bottom of the pool.
If you use an automatic vacuum, plug in your cleaner, put it in the water, and let it do its job! There are three types of automatic pool vacuums, suction, robotic, and pressure.
