The key to maintaining a crystal clear pool is regular, routine care. To begin with, it’s essential to vacuum your pool on a weekly basis and remember to check the filter each time you use the vacuum to ensure it is clean. On a daily basis be sure to use a net and skim the pool’s surface to remove debris, leaves and dead insects. Make sure to also clean out your pool’s strainer basket. This takes only a minute and helps maintain the cleanliness of your pool.
Brushing the walls and tiles also helps to minimise the buildup of algae and calcium deposits. Before you buy cleaning products or tools speak to your Drakes Traders sales assistant to ensure you are using the right materials – the material of your pool wall and tiles depends on the product you should use. For example, for tile only use a soft brush to prevent scratching.
There are different types of pool filters. It is important to read your filter instructions and clean your filter depending on the type of filter you have and how often you use your pool.
