How to clean a pool: step-by-step for efficient cleaning
1. External area
With the accumulation of dirt and residues from the circulation of people, animals and even leaves carried by the wind, the first step is to clean the outside area of your pool properly. Start by sweeping this waste away from the pool water. It is important that you check the type of coating on the outside of your pool, as each has a different cleaning method that should be used to avoid problems.
2. Filters or strainer
The second step is to clean the filters (strainer or skimmer). The skimmer is a device that is on the side of the pool and that collects the dirt that is on the water surface like leaves and insects for example. Turn off the filtration system and close the records for safety reasons before starting cleaning your pool.
3. Water surface
Now is the time to remove the dirt that floats in the water like leaves, insects and flowers. Use the telescopic rod with the sieve to remove all this waste from the water completely. Buy a sieve with the mesh tightly closed so that you can “fish” even the smallest dirt in the water. And avoid sinking the sieve handle too much or you will stir the dirt.
4. Brush the coating
Clean the pool liner with the curved brush to remove algae and debris from the pool liner. This procedure helps to prevent fungi and bacteria from accumulating inside the pool. Look for a brush with soft bristles and suitable for cleaning this type of material that does not harm it. Never, under any circumstances, use abrasives such as steel wool or metal brushes.
