It’s pretty rewarding to have a pool in your courtyard. You can look forward to lounging in it after work and spending long hours working on your tan. However, while it’s easy to get caught up in the more enjoyable thoughts of pool ownership, many daydreams forget a crucial task: pool maintenance. Without proper care, your courtyard pool could be exposed to bacteria, algae and other contaminants daily. Here are some simple maintenance tips to help you eliminate these.
Skimming The Surface
Skimming your pool’s surface every few days with a leaf skimmer is one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep it clean. Do this frequently to remove debris before it sinks to the bottom and also to rid the water of bugs and other unwanted detritus. You can also reduce the need for this task by getting a swimming pool builder to install an automatic cover system.
Regularly Clean the Pool Floor
Your pool floor and walls should be vacuumed and brushed at least once a week to help keep the water clean. If your pool walls and tiles are made of concrete, use a stiff brush. Fibreglass walls will require a softer brush to prevent cracks from forming.
Clean the Deck
It’s just as important to keep the pool decks sanitary as it is to clean the water. When decks aren’t regularly cleaned and disinfected, bacteria can begin to form, making the surface slippery and dangerous. As well, germs can spread from the deck to the pool surface, infecting your water.
