How to Clean Your Pool

It’s that time of year again! We’re getting ready to make sure that the pool is ready to go. But how do you clean your pool? What should you do in order to ensure that your pool is in the best condition possible so you and your family can enjoy it throughout the summer months? Here are some tips that can help you learn how to clean your pool appropriately.

Take stock of your pool cleaning supplies and verify you have all that you require. The main thing you'll need is a pole that extends, so that you can reach everything you need to within your pool. Next would be a leaf net, likewise called a leaf skimmer (which isn’t the same as the “skimmer” that you find in your pool’s filtration system). You will, likewise, need a pool brush to scrub at the floor and the walls. Lastly, a vacuum head and hose are key, especially in the event that you don't have a motorized or automatic pool cleaner. These are the essential items that are required to clean your pool.

For pool upkeep, it is suggested that you brush the walls and floor of the pool once a week. Give careful consideration to any zones that have poor water circulation. You can buy brushes in diverse widths that join to the end of a pole, or a brush that comes permanently attached to the pole. Pool brushes can also be used to clean your deck and porch.

Use a leaf net to haul out leaves and any other debris that may be in your pool. The leaf net is helpful for skimming the surface of the water to get bugs also. You can also use your leaf net to gather up toys and different things your children may have left or lost in the pool. They’re pretty handy to have, and make sure that you have a backup net in case something happens to your main one.

Use a vacuum head appended to an adjustable pole or run your pool cleaner to gather any debris that is in the pool. Make certain to get the right vacuum head or cleaner for your pool’s type, as they are composed differently based on the type of material used to build your pool. Use a brush to physically clean any tight corners or stained spots that the cleaner may miss. You may have to put a little elbow grease into it, but in general, you should be able to get the pool relatively clean with just a little bit of effort on your end.

The last segment to keeping your swimming pool clean is keeping up the correct compound levels. It is exceptionally vital to test your water customarily for two key elements: pH and bacteria. By testing your water no less than three times each week, you will start to see how swimmer’s bodies, climate (rain and sun), and repeated usage can influence pool water. General testing of pH and bacteria levels will guarantee clear water for the duration of the season.

So, now that you know how to clean your pool, it’s time to get started! The sooner you start, the better it will be. Your pool will be ready to enjoy much more quickly if you get started with your cleaning process as soon as possible. Go to your local spa supply store for prices on the products we’ve talked about here, and start to enjoy the benefits of having a pool as soon as the weather has warmed up enough to allow you to do so.
