Swim Pure Pool contractors explain how to keep pool water clean

Everybody into the pool! But, wait! Is the water clean? Has anyone cleaned the skimmer basket? Does the pool need to be skimmed? The water tested, etc. etc. Owning a swimming pool is a joy and a responsibility and it’s the responsibility of it that makes many pool owners opt to work with a swimming pool service professional from Swim Pure Pools. If you want to clean the pool yourself, we can offer tips and if you decide you just want to enjoy the pool, not put in all of the work, we can give you an estimate to take that task off your hands!

How to keep pool water clean

Here are pool service tasks you can take on yourself which will help your pool virtually care for itself between service visits:

  • Install an automatic cleaning system. The vacuum heads pop up and drive the dirt and debris toward the drain and out of the swimming pool. Ask us about robotic pool cleaning systems — these work much the same as the automatic vacuums you can buy for your home. You drop them in, turn them on and they do the work. Many of these systems are energy efficient, have built in scrubbing brushes, the ability to float so they can clean the surface and they offer faster cleaning than traditional cleaning systems and also don’t require you to be there to do the work. Even though you use an automatic cleaning system you will still need to do a thorough cleaning of the pool regularly to reach the areas the automatic systems just can’t.
  • You don’t have to dump powdered chlorine into your swimming pool to keep the water clean. The newer technologies allow you to minimize the use of chlorine or even eliminate it completely by installing a salt water chlorine generator.
  • Higher quality pool construction materials mean that your swimming pool will last longer than it might have in the past and with having to use fewer chemicals to keep it clean. Consider too, that if you haven’t had your pool constructed yet — fiberglass is a construction material that requires the fewest chemicals to keep clean and is also considered the easiest material to maintain.
