Cleaner Pools: Easy-to-Follow Maintenance Tips for Swimming Pools

Keeping the swimming pool clean and sparkling need not be a cumbersome undertaking as many would think. Swimming pools are constructed differently and therefore their maintenance requirements will also differ. However, one thing is common to their maintenance: regular and routine care is vital.

Skim Pool Debris

Skimming the surface of your pool every couple of days by hand is one of the easiest ways of keeping it clean. Use a leaf skimmer or hand skimmer for removing bugs, leaves and other unwanted floating debris which may eventually sink and become harder to get rid of.

Regularly Check and Test the Water

Water gets lost largely due to evaporation and factors like splashing and pool exiting. Make sure it never goes below the skimmer level to ensure efficient operation of your pool filtration system. Your pools water level should sit half way up the mouth of your skimmer box.
