How do you maintain a swimming pool?

Maintain a pool by paying close attention to the pool water, the pool’s interior wall (or liner), the filtration system, and the skimmer and returns system. By monitoring your swimming pool’s circulation, employing a cleaning schedule and understanding the chemistry of your water, you can maintain your pool for safe use.

How often do you need to clean a swimming pool?

You should have your pool cleaned and decontaminated at least once a week during summer when it is in frequent use. Maintaining the cleanliness of your pool is just one aspect of swimming pool care.

What chemicals are needed to maintain a pool?

The chemical needed to maintain a swimming pool are:

  • Alkalinity increaser
  • Calcium hardness granules
  • Alkanity decreaser
  • Chlorine pool shock
  • Algaecide
  • Cyanuric Acid
  • Clarifier
  • Stain and scale remover
How often should you put chlorine in your pool?

Put chlorine in your pool as often as is necessary to keep the chorine value at 1 and 1.5 ppm. You should check the chlorine level of your pool at least twice a week during the swimming season to ensure that you stay within these levels.

What happens when you put too much chlorine in a pool?

Putting too much chlorine in a pool can make the water unsafe to swim in, as exposure to the chemical can cause skin and eye damage, and also provoke lung irritation and asthma. Chlorine also increases the acidity in your pool, which can lead to corrosion of pool walls.
