By Expert Author: William James

Just like other things, appropriate pool maintenance is also an essential activity. Good pool maintenance can give an enchanting and appealing look to the swimming pool. As, all pools are distinctive in nature, so their maintenance tools and needs also differ from one another. Similarly, whether pool maintenance is done manually or through equipment’s, you still need to focus upon some other things.

So, to keep a pool in good and healthy condition, here are some effective tips for you.

1. No Debris:-
 An unpleasant appearance of the pool is generally occurring due to debris. Hence, use a long-handled skimmer to scoop up all the unwanted items such as leaves, bugs, twigs and much more. If you want to remove tenacious debris, you can also use a hose.

2. Check PH Level of the Pool:-
 The PH level of the pool should be checked after every one week. A reading of between 7.2 and 7.8 is ideal on the pH scale. Excess or drop of this reading lead to high acidity which can cause eye and skin irritations, ruin bathing costumes and pool equipment, rapid chlorine loss and a lot more issues. Therefore, whether you are performing salt water pool maintenance or regular maintenance, malfunctioning of PH level should be fixed as soon as possible.

3. Sanitization:-
 Chlorine is the genuine product which used to keep water healthy and clean. This chemical keeps pool water safe from harmful bacteria, algae and other microbes. Ammonia or nitrogen can also add to your pool’s chlorine so that it eliminates the pathetic and potent chlorine odor from pool water.

4. Pool’s Walls and Tiles cleaning:-
 By just cleaning the walls and tiles of the pool, you will give a crystal clear appearance to it. Proper brushing also helps in eliminating algae buildup and calcium deposit issues. For cleaning of plaster-lined concrete pools, you can use a stiff brush and a softer brush for fiberglass or vinyl walls. Use of softer brush on tiles prevents them from various damages.

Thus, your pool is a valuable asset of your home. Taking the guidance of professionals can also help you in efficient maintenance of the pool.
