Caring for a pool involves a series of consistent steps designed to keep your pool clean, sparkling, and ready for a refreshing swim. While Betz Pools offers a comprehensive weekly cleaning and chemical check service to keep your pool in prime condition, it’s also useful to understand the basics of pool maintenance.
One of the most straightforward pool maintenance tasks is skimming. By using a leaf rake, you can remove any floating debris from your pool’s surface. Regularly clearing out the skimmer basket also ensures that your pool’s filtration system operates efficiently.
Cleaning the Waterline
A scum line can develop along the waterline over time, which may affect the aesthetic appeal of your pool and potentially impact water quality. Regularly brush the waterline using a tile brush and a tile-x cleaning solution to prevent scum buildup. Remember to scrub gently to avoid damage to tiles or grout.
Algae, dirt, and other deposits can adhere to your pool’s walls and floor. Regular brushing of these surfaces helps to loosen these deposits, making them easier to vacuum away.
Vacuuming is a key part of pool maintenance, removing debris that sinks to the pool’s bottom. Here’s how to vacuum your pool effectively:
Connect the vacuum head to the telescopic pole and the vacuum hose.
Submerge the vacuum and hose in the pool, pushing the hose straight down to expel all the air.
Once devoid of air, connect the hose’s free end to the skimmer of your pool.
Close all other suction lines to concentrate suction on the vacuum.
Slowly and steadily move the vacuum across the pool floor, starting in the shallow end.
Once finished, lift the vacuum out of the pool, disconnecting the hose from the skimmer just before air reaches it.
Regular pool maintenance is vital for the longevity and enjoyment of your pool. However, for those who prefer a hassle-free pool experience, consider Betz Pools’ premium weekly pool cleaning services. Let our professionals handle the upkeep, so you can swim and relax in your pristine pool.
