Green Pool Cleaning For Dummies

Are you tired of paying your local pool cleaners whenever you need them to clean your green pool? What’s more exhausting is when you look at the expensive amount they charge you for their services. This shouldn’t be the case as you can do by yourself all of the cleaning activities they do.

Perhaps you think that you are not qualified in cleaning your green pool as you don’t have the proper knowledge on how to do it, there’s no need to get worried as cleaning your pool is as easy as cleaning your sink.

Here’s what you need to do if you are new in cleaning green pool waters:

First and foremost, you need to have a good pool shocking product as this will be your best weapon in getting rid of your green water caused by algae. If you don’t have one, you can purchase at the nearest store near you. It doesn’t really matter what shocking product you are going to use as long as it is effective enough in cleaning your pool although it is quite practical if you purchase an affordable one. Chlorine is a good pool cleaner and has been used and proven to be effective in doing its job. It is known that the more chlorine you put in your pool, the better it fights off the algae in your pool. However, be very careful when you mix this product into the pool as getting this in your skin and eyes will result to injuries or irritations. Use proper safety suit such as hand gloves and goggles when handling chemical products to avoid any accidents. Shocking your pool will last for 24 to 72 hours depending on how green and dirty your swimming pool is.

Remove the dirt and debris by using your pool vacuum cleaner after you have shocked your pool. This can be done by attaching the vacuum head of your pool vacuum cleaner to your pool pole. Get rid of all the dead algae as well and make sure that you leave none behind. Repeat the vacuuming process as long as there are still dirt and debris on your swimming pool.

You can also use a skimmer net in case you are having a hard time on removing floating debris and fallen leaves from your pool. The larger your skimmer net is the faster you can finish your job. Be very thorough when removing leaves and other debris to avoid any repeat job as these will eventually stain your pool.

You can also brush the sides and floor of your pool to get rid of the dead algae and to remove the stains due to overdue leaves and other debris. Maintain your regular brushing to keep the health of your pool on its best. Scrubbing your pool will also discourage any algae infestation as they will be removed as soon as they begin to infiltrate your pool.

Run your filtering system to make sure that you get all of the sediments from your pool. Keep it running until you get your desired result.
