Before you start your cleaning task, you should first have these tools for cleaning:
- Pool wall brush
- Pumice stone
- Tile brush
- Pool skimmer
- Telescopic pole
- Pool vacuum or automatic pool cleaner
When getting started in cleaning your pool you want to skim the surface of the water to remove debris thats floating and leaves. When leaves and debris sink it makes it harder to remove them and they can also stain the pool surface. Make sure your regulatory remove debri and leaves before they sink.
Using a pumice stone or tile brush, remove the scale on the water line by scrubbing the tile floor If you have a vinyl pool liner, do not use a pumice stone since it might damage the surface. Make sure also to wet the pumice stone first before scrubbing the tiled water line to avoid scratches on the tiles.
To keep a clean swimming pool, your need to regularly empty all pump baskets. Once you clean the pump baskets, it is time to get the pool vacuumed using your automatic pool cleaner. Vacuuming your pool is much like vacuuming your carpet so this is not a hard task to perform.
Once vacuuming your pool is complete, the next step is to clean the pool’s sides and floor by brushing the tiles using the poly-bristle or a nylon brush. After cleaning the walls and the floor, it is now time to fill the pool with clean water.
Before enjoying your clean swimming pool, do not forget to clean all the equipment and tools you used for cleaning with clean, fresh water, and store them in a dry place away from the sun.
