How to Clean a Swimming Pool

From Swim University

Our friends at Swim University are at it again.  Matt Giovanisci, the principal of Swim University, propagates some of the most relevant, interesting, and helpful infomation about swimming pools and swimming pool maintenance available anywhere on the Net.  This post relates to the proper means and methods of cleaning an inground swimming pool.   Many swimming pool owners want to do their own swimming pool maintenance, but don’t know where to start.  This post gives you the basics and instruction for that very thing.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Cleaning your pool includes: vacuuming, skimming, and brushing. If you do these tasks every week, you will keep your pool clean. It also helps to keep algae, stains, and cloudy water from occurring.

I like to compare it to brushing your teeth. If you didn’t brush your teeth everyday, you would have cavities, plaque, and the dreaded gingivitis. You wouldn’t neglect brushing your teeth, so don’t neglect your pool.

or all pool cleaning, you will need to own a telescopic pole that is long enough to reach every part of the pool no matter where you stand. I suggest buying a 8’ to 16’ pole. When it’s not extended, it’s only 8 foot in length, but you can extend it up to 16 feet for those hard-to-reach areas.
