7 Steps for Cleaning a Pool

On a hot summer day, who wouldn’t want to submerge in a cool and refreshing pool? At the end of a long day, what better way to relax than to float? Enjoying all that requires some regular attention to pool equipment.

The water in your pool is an ever-changing environment that calls for both attention and maintenance. For many, this means employing a professional service technician to come by once or twice a week. You can, on the other hand, take care of your pool yourself by following our steps. 

Step 1 – The Pool Cover

Obviously, the first step to cleaning a pool is to remove your pool cover, if you have one. Two people make this easier by each grabbing a corner at the shallow end and dragging the cover off at the same time. As you pull, fold the cover on top of itself every five feet or so, like you would a fan, to keep any debris on it in place instead of slipping into your pool. Flatten the cover where it can dry completely and remove any debris from it before refolding and storing in a dry place.
