How to keep your pool clean

At Brisa Pool, we understand the importance of maintaining a clean pool for a safe and enjoyable swimming experience. Here are our expert tips to help you keep your pool in pristine condition:

  1. Daily Skimming and Weekly Scrubbing: We recommend skimming the surface of your pool daily to remove leaves, insects, and debris. Weekly scrubbing of the walls and tiles prevents algae buildup. For tough spots, a mixture of water and mild detergent with a stiff brush works wonders.

  2. Ensuring Proper Water Circulation: It’s crucial to keep your pool’s water circulating. We suggest running the pump for at least 8 hours a day to ensure proper water circulation and filtration. Regularly cleaning the filter is essential to maintain its efficiency.

  3. Maintaining Chemical Balance: Regular water testing is vital to keep the pH level (7.2-7.8), alkalinity (80-120 ppm), and chlorine levels (1-3 ppm) in check. Proper chemical balance prevents algae growth and ensures the water is safe for swimming. Additionally, shocking the pool with a higher dose of chlorine every few weeks helps eliminate bacteria and other contaminants.

  4. Weekly Vacuuming: We advise vacuuming your pool at least once a week to remove debris and dirt that skimming might miss. While automatic pool cleaners are convenient, manual vacuuming ensures thorough cleaning, especially in hard-to-reach areas.

  5. Maintaining Water Levels: It’s important to keep the water level halfway up the skimmer opening. Low water levels can damage the pump, while high levels reduce the skimmer’s efficiency.

  6. Regular Equipment Inspections: Periodic inspections of your pool’s equipment, including the pump, filter, and heating systems, are necessary to identify any signs of wear or damage. Addressing issues promptly can prevent more significant problems down the line.

  7. Seasonal Maintenance: During the swimming season, increased usage requires more frequent cleaning and chemical adjustments. Before closing the pool for winter, ensure it is clean, chemically balanced, and securely covered to prevent debris accumulation.
