Have you let the condition of your pool water get out of hand? It happens to even the best pool owners at least once. Either you’ve been traveling or your kids have been away or it’s been too cold, and cleaning the pool simply hasn’t been a priority. A slip up here and there is fine, but prolonged dirtiness can cause problems, some of which you may need a pool and spa specialist to address. Following are several helpful pool cleaning tips for dirty pools.
Have Equipment Repaired
Sometimes, it may be due to malfunctioning equipment that your water has become so dirty. If this is the case, have your pool equipment repaired before proceeding.
Clean Away Bugs and Leaves
Clearing away leaves and bugs with a leaf net won’t be anything new. Doing this will also help clear away any surface algae if you’re careful not to stir the water up too much.
You can check your pool chemicals yourself or take a sample to your local pool and spa specialist. You may need to shock your water and correct your pH reading.
Run Your Pool Filter
You’ll need to run your pool filter continuously for a couple of days. Once you’ve done this, the water should be cleared for the most part.
