Pool cleaning is a very simple process but most opt out and use a cleaning service to do it for them. While cleaning services from a pool service company do offer some benefits, here is an easy to follow guide for anyone who is cleaning their pool on a budget.
Gently cleaning your swimming pool on a weekly basis throughout the swimming season can guarantee safe and clean swimming water.
Skim Away Leaves and Debris Attempt to remove debris before it sinks to the bottom of the swimming pool at which it will become hard to remove and might produce stains.
Brush sediment toward the primary drain so that it is easily vacuumed. Vacuum Submerge your vacuum hose and head, prior to hooking up the vacuum to the filter. You also need to wash out your skimmer(s) per week or more frequently if needed.
Removing debris allows the skimmer to function at optimum efficiency. Assess Water Circulation The machine helps compounds work efficiently and ensures that water is properly filtered. Run your pump long enough every day to ensure that the water is properly filtered and maintain every thing clean and in good shape.
Assess Filter The three most well-known types of filters – cartridge, sand, and vertical grid DE – display out debris and contaminants out of the pool water. You must wash and keep your filter based on the manufacturer’s instructions.
Shock & Examine your pool water regularly (weekly or daily depending on usage) and include chemicals if needed, following manufacturers’ instructions. A normal jolt treatment protects the water of germs, bacteria, soil, and some other organic matter which might have entered the pool. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for shock treatments.
One final note, make sure you stay on top of it. If you pool at any point falls in the green area, meaning that it actually is starting to look green then you have a long road ahead of you. This is where people make the biggest mistake and end up spending the most money, keep your pool clear and it will keep the cost down!
