How to Clean and Maintain your Outdoor Swimming Pool

Do you need a sparkling blue and sky reflective water in your swimming poll? This will be an easy task if you can clean your poll with its circulation and filtration systems regularly. This article will provide you a few ideas to keep the pool clean and pure.

To keep your swimming pool water clean and pure, you will need to adjust the water chemistry such as the pH that should range between 7.2 and 7.6. If the result is above 7.6, the water will be more alkaline and if it is lower than 7.2, it will be more acidic water. Now you should determine the right concentration of chlorine that will kill the bacteria without affecting your pipelines or filtration system. You can mix the chlorine with cyan uric acid to reduce its effectiveness. You can replace the cyan uric acid with calcium hypochlorite if you have a low pH rate in the water.

To clean and maintain the filtration system in your outdoor swimming pool, you will need first to ask about the type of that filter. If you have a sand filter, you can clean it using backwashing system and the pressure will take the dirt in its way. The cartridge filter will need to be uninstalled to remove the loose dirt and soak its elements for about twelve minutes.If you have a diatomaceous earth filter, it will need backwashing with a pressure from 7 to 10 lbs.

The weekly cleaning of your swimming pool will keep it clean and inviting all the time. If you find floating debris or leaves on the surface of your outdoor pool’s water, try to remove them before they sink and cause more problems. You will need to vacuum the bottom and walls of your pool to reduce the amount of chemicals used in cleaning your pool.
