Cleaning Swimming Pools

You have to follow and do some basic protocols if you want efficient pool cleaning. These steps are straightforward to follow, and anyone can do it! Let’s start with determining the surface composition before you start up the cleaning procedure!

The first step is cleaning all of the debris from the pool. You can always do a quick sweep where you can clean most of the cover. If your pool has a floating type cover without a roller system, you should fold it up on a clean surface. This will allow for better cleaning, and it won’t pull drag leaves or grass on it when you put it back! If you are using a mechanized cover system, there will be extra water on top of the cover. This excess water will slide off as you roll it up! You might want to try water removal pumps if you are going to work with a lot of water! The surface is also critical. You should avoid sharp surfaces at all costs when you are removing the drag cover.

Searching the Surface

If there is dirt on the surface, it’s easier to remove. The pool cleaning has some basics which can be implemented easily if you know what you are doing. The dirt on the top is more comfortable to remove compared to debris on the bottom! You can use a leaf rake or telepole to remove the dirt on the surface! The net should be used carefully and empty it into a trash can as much as possible! You should keep this debris somewhere out of your garden because it can get back right in as soon as it dries out. This will make your efforts go waste, and you will spend more time in the pool.

You should avoid scratching the tile of the swimming pool. Professional leaf rakes are suitable for this problem. You can quickly gather the debris in the pool without scratching the pool. If the pool has general dirt on the surface, you can use a quick shot of tile soap, which will spread the dust through to edges of the pool. This will allow for better cleaning.

Cleaning the Tiles

You should always clean the tiles first. The tiles are the central place of the dirt! Their dirty mostly settles at the bottom of the pool, which creates a problem later on. There might be stubborn stains that don’t go away. You can clean these stains with a pumice stone if you want to! This material will break down and clean up to debris on the bottom part of the room.

You can also clean the tiles with a tile soap and brush if you want to! The applying process is so easy. You can use the tile soap directly to the place you want and clean it with the brush. The scrubbing shouldn’t be too hard since the chemicals will react and dissolve the debris. You can also mix the muriatic acid and soap to clean up the waterlines and other stubborn stains. You should never use too hard brushes if you don’t want to leave scratches on the tiles!

Water Pool Level

Keeping up the normal evaporation in a water pool is crucial. You should never leave the water by itself. If you follow the levels of water all the time, you can quickly fill it within hours. The level of the water should be observed, and it should never be left alone. You might want to lower the water level after trainy days. You can use the backwash hose or vacuum hose to discharge the water in the pool. This method is pretty good if you want to even the level of your water fast and easy.


An excellent way to correct all of the small problems is by having your equipment checked all the time! The skimmer basket is an essential item, and you should keep it empty most of the time. You can always empty the contents of the basket in a trash can or a garbage bag. The pressure of the filter should be checked carefully. You don’t have to clean the filter before the whole cleaning process since it will be low pressure. The pressure of the filter is generally low before the cleaning process. You should check the pressure of the filter after the cleaning process because it’s going to be high.

The heater is the third item you should be checking. You can switch it on and off a few times to check it. It should be operating properly if you want to have a good swimming pool. You should turn off the pump when the heater is running on! This will ensure the heater closes itself when the pressure of the pump drops. This is one of the essential safety checks you can do in your pool!

The clock is the last important thing you should check, but it’s vital. The cleaner’s clock adjusts the daily filter runs. You should always check them after power outages, which will affect the cleanliness of the pool! The other household items also have an effect on the clocks, which makes them essential.  Electromechanical time clocks are not the most precise items you are using, and they should be checked as many times as possible. You should review the clocks every few weeks if possible because the time will probably change by an hour!

The last thing you should do to check the early signs of equipment failure. By doing that, you can ensure there are no future errors. Clear the whole equipment area from debris and leaves, and you will be suitable the go. Also, check the water leakages, of course!
