Pool Cleaning Tips From the B. M. Wemple Pros
While we can help with the big pool cleanings and seasonal maintenance, you will be responsible for the daily cleaning required to keep your swimmers safe. Once installed, our staff can walk you through your pool’s maintenance and cleaning habits. Check out the list below if you need a refresher on the proper steps:
Skimming and Scrubbing: While it may seem obvious, you need to make sure your pool stays free of debris. Using a skimmer, you should pull out fallen leaves and branches. There also may be grass from when you take care of the lawn. Some dirt will settle at the bottom of your pool, and you will need to use a vacuum to keep it clean. There could also be bugs or small animals that make their way into the pool, which you will need to remove immediately. Once removed, you may need to treat the pool with special chemicals.
Filter Checks: Those same small animals may get caught in your filters here, so pay special close attention to the baskets before and after getting out of the pool. Keeping this equipment clear helps your pool stay as clean as possible. Pull them out and give them a quick rinse to ensure nothing stops the filter from adequately doing its job.
Consistent Chemical Check: Staying on top of your chemicals is the number one way to ensure everyone's safety when swimming at your pool. We recommend checking the chemicals' levels at least three times a day to maintain balance. The B. M. Wemple Pools specialists can help you understand how to read the test results and bring them to a better ratio when out of line.
Chemical Substitutes: If you run out of chemicals midday, not to worry! There are some alternative options you could use that you may have sitting around the house already. Baking soda is an excellent substitution for sodium bicarbonate. You need this chemical solution to control the alkalinity level of your pool. It helps reduce the amount of pH levels. It also costs a fraction of the price.
Shocking Your Pool: Did you throw a big bash over the weekend only to come out Monday and notice how cloudy your pool is? That cloudiness is bacteria leftover from your guests. While not always bad, you should shock your pool as soon as possible to remove the clouds and get a clear pool.
Maintain Water Levels: Keeping your pool’s water level regulated is as essential as your chemicals. They rely on each other to stay balanced. For example, if you have too much water, you will have to add chemicals to make up the difference, and if your water is low, the chemicals will be at too high of levels and may not be safe for swimming.
Absorb Left Behind Oils: It is not uncommon to wear sunscreen or tanning oils when relaxing by the pool. If you do not wait long enough for them to adhere fully, you can leave these behind in the pool, creating a greasy or film-like layer on top of the water. You can easily remove this layer by tossing a few tennis balls in and letting them float around for a bit. The balls will collect oils, and then you can pull them out and clean them.
Power Washing the Deck: If you can keep the pool deck clean, you won’t have to worry so much about it when it comes to skimming. Renting a power washer will help you get deep into the cracks and crevices of your deck to keep it as clean as possible.
Schedule Regular Maintenance and Seasonal Cleaning: Finally, the best thing you can do for your pool is to make sure you call B. M. Wemple Pools to schedule regular deep cleanings. Since Orlando and the surrounding area experience great weather all year, it is important we send out our professionals at least four times a year for a cleaning. We will also check in on your equipment to ensure everything is functioning properly.
