Keeping the swiming pool clean is a tough job. Here's a look at what all you need to maintain a clean healthy pool.
1 Get armed:
Having the tools essential for the job is a priority. If you don't have some of these in your tool shed, you might want to invest and buy what's missing. You'll need these long-term anyway.
2 Leaf skimmer:
This is precisely what you need for taking leaves and other debris out of the pool. Make sure your leaf skimmer has a long handle.
3 Portable vacuum:
The kind of course that is tailor-fit for sucking dirt from the swimming pool floor. Look for the customised design that allows you to fit the contraption into the swimming pool's circulation or get the alternative — the one that operates from an independent power supply.
4 Brush and stone:
Pick a brush that is made of nylon bristles and can effectively clean the walls of the pool made from materials like porcelain, tile, or fibreglass. Pumice stone, the ones that are used to slough off dead skin from the feet, can work well for stubborn stains.
5 Algae brush:
If you see algae growing in your pool, this is the perfect brush to get rid of the green stuff. Leaving it there will encourage rapid algae growth that is not good for your swimming pool.
