The Basics of Swimming Pool  Care and Cleaning

How the Pool Works

The first rule of swimming pool care and cleaning is to keep the water in chemical balance.  To learn about swimming pool water care, use the link above above.

Your pool has a pump and filter, along with other components, to help keep your pool sparkling clean and beautiful.  The pump moves water from the pool through skimmers, main drains, and other suction fittings. Skimmers are situated at the water line to remove debris from the top of the water.  There is a basket in the skimmer, to collect larger debris, like leaves, and a weir, or flap, to keep the debris from going back into the pool when the pump is not running.  Other suction fittings, like the main drain, or bottom suction, have protective covers to keep out large debris, and are shaped to prevent human entrapment.  There is another basket in the pump, called a strainer, to catch any of the larger debris that gets past the suction fittings.  The water is then passed through the pool filter, and returned to the pool through return fittings.  These may be small inlets in the sides of the pool, or other features like water falls, or floor cleaning systems.  There are often diverter valves at the pump inlet and on the return lines, to control how much water flow is coming from or going to each. 

visit our page, [ How pools work ] to  learn more about how swimming pool equipment works. 

Cleaning the Pool

You might think of the pool as an underwater, outdoor room with no roof.  The floor gets dirty,  and needs to be vacuumed, the filters need to be cleaned from time to time, and the walls get dirty, too.  The pool should be vacuumed periodically, usually weekly.  Baskets should be kept clean, and when leaves are falling, the surface needs to be skimmed regularly by hand, because the skimmer baskets can only hold so much.  I have always said that to care for a swimming pool, most pool owner should spend five minutes per day, plus 1/2 to 1 hour per week.   Weekly maintenance services are available, and those services, or a reliable automatic cleaner, can take the place of the hour per week.  They are not, however, a substitute for the five minutes per day. 

Every day, you should check to see that the skimmer baskets are not full, that the filtration system is working and not leaking or noisy, that the filter pressure is not to high (normally, if the skimmers(s) are working well, the filter pressure is fine) skim the surface if it needs it, and do a quick chemical test and adjust as needed.

Vacuuming the Pool

Every pool should have at least one long, telescoping pole, with dip net and vacuum head that attach to it.  A long vacuum hose is attached to the vacuum head.  This hose is about 1 1/2  in inner diameter, and long enough to reach from the skimmer to the furthest point in the pool.  The vacuum head, with hose and pole attached, are lowered into the water. The hose should be fed into the water slowly, so that the hose fills completely with water.  The hose is then connected, usually using a vacuum adaptor plate, to the skimmer.        [ MORE about Pool Care and Cleaning ]
