While the equipments are designed to upkeep water
Checking your filtration system if it functions well enough. The filter system removes debris by trapping small particles that get into the equipment and do not dissolve them. The filter system components are the pump and the filter. The pump is the electrical component that drives the pool water through the filter. Most swimming equipment filters use sand, diatomaceous earth (DE), or cartridge elements to filter the water. Be sure to operate and maintain your filter according to manufacturer's specifications including procedures to routinely clean and backwash your filters. Your skimmer and pump basket are designed to collect large debris before it reaches the filter. You should empty out and clean these baskets frequently. Failure to remove collected debris often results in poor water circulation, inhibiting maximum filtration efficiency. Vacuuming your swimming equipment helps to ensure a clean healthy water environment. Most manual equipment vacuums attached to the skimmer use the pump pressure to bring debris off from the bottom through the filter system. There can be no air in the vacuum hose when using a manual vacuum. Air can be driven out of the vacuum hoses by either submersing the vacuum hose under water or by placing the vacuum hose over one of the return fittings before hooking it up to the skimmer. The leaf skimming system. Use a leaf skimmer attached to your vacuum pole to gather up leaves, insects and other floating debris on the surface of the water. By removing the debris before it reaches your filter system or the bottom of your pool, you can save time, increase filter efficiency, and prevent staining of the bottom. Use a wall brush to clean and scrub pool walls and the bottom of the pool. Brushing the pool will allow the debris and dirt to be caught in your pool's filtration system as well as prevent algea growth and staining due to stagnant dirt. Brush your pool as needed or as part of a weekly maintenance. Always keep the surrounding deck areas clean. A good practice in maintaining a clean pool is to keep the deck and surrounding areas free from loose leaves, dirt, and debris. This dirt and debris will either be brought into the pool by users or blown into the pool where it will have to be cleaned out too. A regimen of regularly hosing down the deck or raking the surrounding yard is recommended to prevent needless pool water cleaning activities. Lastly, the best way to keep algea at bay is to properly maintain the chemical balance of your pool water. Be sure you have a good pool water testing kit so that you can monitor your water regularly. If you do that, algea won't be able to get started and you should be able to avoid the problem of fighting it. If you found this warning too late, then consult a pool specialist and have your problem solved.
