Practical Ways To Clean Your Pool By Yourself

By Carl Cleaner

Having a swimming pool in your homes entails a certain sense of responsibility over them. Because like all house areas, they will eventually gather filth and get dirty in time. Swimming pools accumulate algae from everything around it. Once left unchecked, it will turn the water unclean and unsafe to swim on. Because of this, every pool owner has to bear in mind to impose proper and regular maintenance to their pools.

Although, that the task at hand when cleaning the pool can be quite handy because of its size, it doesn’t necessarily follow that it can’t be done. You just need to invest a little on some materials you would utilize in maintaining your pool periodically. Don’t worry, they are worth-it investments hence you will be using them in the long run.

There are a lot of relatively cheap pool cleaning tools available in the market. You can choose to use these items instead of buying the expensive leviathan pool cleaning machineries. But if you can afford to buy the “not-so-cheap” ones, you are free to do so. These practical tools will include a vacuum, pool brush, and a skimming net.

Once you have them all, you can then begin your task:

If there are a lot trees overlooking your pool or plants nearby it, it would be natural that they might invade the pool waters as well. Use your skimming net to pick-up and sift those floating leaves in the water. Be sure to have a garbage can, or any waste containers near you so that it would be easier to keep all the leaves in one place after you sift them up. Keep going until you can now clearly see the water free from floating leaves.

Empty your pool periodically, probably once a week for comprehensive cleaning. Overtime, your pool builds up algae making the floors and the walls mossy and slippery. Drain the water from your pool then proceed on by using the pool brush and brush the floors and the walls until you get rid of that mossy slippery feel caused by algae buildup.

Although vacuums are relatively of higher price, they are very invaluable tools in cleaning your pool. Your vacuum will siphon the water in your pool and filter debris and or dirt from it. It would be handy to vacuum your pool at least once a week to ensure the pool water is clean.

Filters are important pool items to have. They keep your pool clean in between general cleanings. Filters sift water from dirt thus making the water cleaner. But eventually, all the dirt filtered by the filters will accumulate until it can’t manage to filter any more dirt. It is important to periodically clean the filters to ensure that they are working properly and at the same time, keeping your pool clean.
