How to clean a pool: step-by-step for efficient cleaning

1. External area

With the accumulation of dirt and waste from the circulation of people, animals and even leaves carried by the wind, the first step is to clean the outside area of ​​your pool. Start by sweeping these residues away from the water.

2. Filters or strainer

The second step is to clean the filters (sieve or skimmer). The skimmer is a device that is on the side of the pool and that collects the dirt that is on the surface of the water such as leaves and insects.

3. Water surface

Now is the time to remove the dirt that is floating in the water such as leaves, insects and flowers. Use the telescopic rod with the sieve to remove all these residues from the water. Buy a sieve with the mesh tightly closed so you can “fish” even the very small dirt.

4. Brush the coating

Clean the pool liner with the curved brush to remove algae buildup and debris. This procedure helps to prevent fungi and bacteria from accumulating inside the pool. Never, under any circumstances, use abrasives such as steel wool or metal brushes.
