Are you taking the right steps to keep your pool clean? Proper pool maintenance is absolutely vital. As a pool owner, there are a number of tasks you must do on a regular basis. Hopefully your pool and spa specialist outlined many of these for you when you installed your pool. If not, it would be a good idea to contact a pool and spa company. One of their pool technicians will be able to assess the condition of your pool and offer specific guidance for its care. Luckily, pool care isn’t nearly as difficult as it may seem. Here’s what every pool owner should know about pool cleaning.
You Need the Right Tools
Pools and spas require specific tools to make cleaning easier. Some items include a leaf skimmer, a pool brush, a pool vacuum, a pH tester kit, and various chemicals. If you feel you’re missing anything, contact a local pool equipment and supplies distributor to stock up on the necessities.
Daily Cleaning is Required
While deep cleaning can wait, there are small daily tasks you should always complete. Removing leaves from the water surface, for example, is something you should do every day. It’s also a good idea to brush your pool steps, ladder, and floor regularly.
Vacuum Every Week
Vacuuming is an important part of pool cleaning. Vacuuming your pool is similar to vacuuming the carpet in your home. It should be done weekly to ensure your pool remains clean.
