Proper pool cleaning in Seminole will ensure that you will always have a clean place to swim. However, it’s important to keep in mind that after a storm, it may be unsafe to take a dip. (This is also true if you haven’t checked the water pH levels recently.)
Simple Cleaning Tips
Keeping up with a cleaning schedule will allow you to know your swimmers are safe and enjoying clean water. Whether you clean your pool yourself, or hire a professional company, here are some simple cleaning tips to remember:
- Brush the walls then vacuum the bottom: This allows for the algae on the walls to come off and float down to the bottom to be vacuumed up. The material your pool’s walls are made of will decide what kind of brush to use; the wrong kind can damage them.
- Clean the filter: There are three main types of filters, and each one has a specific time for changing in order to keep the water as clean as possible. If you change the filter too often, it will actually be less efficient than one that you replace at the correct time.
- Keep vegetation out: Pool cleaning can be difficult when there’s no screen protecting it. Leaves and bugs and even branches after a storm can make the water dirty and clog the filter. Use a skimmer to collect any fallen debris before swimming.
- Monitor pH levels: Along with calcium hardness, the pH and alkalinity levels will dictate whether or not the water is safe for swimmers. When there is too much, or not enough of these chemicals in the water, there is the risk of irritated skin and eyes. Plus, there’s a higher chance of infection. You or a service technitian should check them 2-3 times per week during high traffic seasons.
While not the most exciting task, pool cleaning in Seminole is necessary to make sure your swimming hole is clean, and ready for everyone to enjoy!
