Cleaning Your Swimming Pool

When you own a pool for fun and relaxation, you don’t want to have to spend too much time cleaning and maintaining it. Fortunately there are products and services around these days to help make your job a lot easier.

All concrete pools require a filter and pump, and these will be installed at the same time as your pool. This system circulates the water, removing fine debris as it does so. Modern cartridge filters need cleaning once the PSI reading is 8-10 above the initial installation reading, to keep them in good condition and operating effectively. Pumps come with a basket for collecting debris and do need to be checked regularly and cleaned to be kept in working order. You might want to consider a pool cover to help keep the pool clean when not in use. A cover also has the added advantage of slowing down water evaporation.

You can also clean your pool with a hand-held vacuum system or skimmer or scoop to remove visible, larger debris such as leaves and twigs or large insects. A sight check will indicate whether this needs to be done, and you may find it is required weekly.

If your concrete pool hasn’t yet been installed, an in-floor cleaning system is well worth consideration. These systems are automated and will save you a lot of time and effort, leaving you more time to enjoy your pool.

Sterilisation of pool water is an important aspect of pool care as is the need to eliminate algae. Owning a salt pool saves time as the salt compound chlorinates the water, and the salt only needs to be added periodically. Saltwater chlorinators can also be timed to operate automatically. Saltwater chlorinators eliminate the chlorine smell and are considered to be better for people with sensitive skin. Another benefit is that you won’t have to find space to store chemicals.

If you don’t have time to clean and maintain your pool, a pool cleaning service is probably the best option. Engaging a professional pool cleaner saves you time and could also save you money in the long run. This is because they are experts in pool maintenance so while they’re present they can also check your pumps, filters, adjust water quality, notice faulty equipment and generally keep your pool in tip-top condition.
