The pools have a little maintenance. Regular cleaning technical control to keep water pH levels, sanitation and adequate circulation is required, as well. Once clean, maintenance is essential throughout the season, from the time the pool opens spring until autumn closes. While you can hire the services of pool, you can save a lot of money doing it yourself, provided you have the right tools and follow a maintenance program.
You will need
- Collector debris to pool
- PH Test Kit
- Brush the pool walls once a week. Use a stiff bristle concrete pools and soft brush in wall fiberglass, tile and vinyl. For algae buildup, use a steel bristle brush (unless you have a vinyl pool). Place the brush on a long pole and eliminates waste as algae and calcium. Rub from the shallow end to the deep end, using overlapping strokes. Work in a circle, carrying dirt to the main drain of the pool.
- Removes debris such as leaves and insects from the water surface to the collector. Do this every day. Use a cover if your pool is under trees and many are exposed to a lot of debris.
- Perform a pH test daily to control the chemical levels. The correct chemical balance keeps the water clean and sanitized. The ideal pH level is between 7.2 and 7.8. If it falls below 7.0, water or acid is corrosive and requires reinforcement with a base. The water above 7.8 is alkaline and needs some acid to lower the pH. Add necessary chemicals to maintain balance.
- Aspira the pool once a week. Slightly overlaps to ensure no let dirt and debris.
- Empty filter baskets once a week. Review them more often because they can become full of debris on windy days. Lift them up and dispose of their retainers content. The water will flow better with empty baskets.
- Look at the pump every day. This team is responsible for filtering the water and keep it circulating. A clogged filter makes cloudy water. Make sure the water to flow freely through it. If not, change the filter.
Tips and Warnings
- Consider the use of an indoor pool to save energy. Reduce the evaporation of water by 90 to 95 percent.
