How to Maintain Your Pool Between Cleanings – Part One
Thorough pool care ensures clean and safe water for you and your family. Below are some steps you can take between pool cleanings to keep your pool in tip-top shape.
Step 1: Skim off Leaves and Debris
Skimming should be the first step in your maintenance routine. It helps to maintain the crystal clear water as well as prevent the insects and debris from clogging up the filtration system and settling at the bottom of your pool.
By using a long-handled leaf skimmer, you can clean the surface of the pool within a matter of minutes. This will help preserve the longevity of your filtration system and prevents stains from forming on the bottom surface.
Step 2: Brush Sediment off Pool Walls
Algae and debris can accumulate on the walls of your pool, ladder and accessories. By brushing the pool walls and fixtures each week, you can prevent the spread of algae. The key is to brush all debris toward the main drain so it can be vacuumed up easily.
Step 3: Run Your Pool Vacuum
Once the sediment has been brushed from the walls and accessories, you can run your pool vacuum to remove the debris entirely. A manual vacuum will do the job, but require more of your time. An automatic vacuum will keep your pool looking fresh without you having to lift a finger.
