If you’ve had your pool for awhile, you already know it requires some TLC to keep it beautiful and balanced. If you haven’t opted to hire a pool and spa specialist to do the cleaning and repairs, you’ve become proficient at the ins and outs of weekly pool maintenance. If you haven’t been at this long, however, we’ll go over the basics.
Suck it Up
No residential pool would be complete without a vacuum. It’s essential. You already know how to vacuum; you just have to do it underwater (not YOU–just the wand!)
Watch for Signs of Trouble
While you’re going about your weekly tasks, watch for anything suspicious. One key component of your pool equipment and supplies is your pump. For the best filtration results, it should run all the time. If you don’t hear it, see what’s up. Consistent circulation is the number one way to keep the water clean and healthy.
Keep Your Filter Clean
Your filter is one of your best allies. Clean it at least once a week, if not more often. At least once a month, depending on how much debris your pool collects, you should also backwash it.
