Whether you just moved into a new home with a pool or if you just installed a pool for the first time, you may not know the important details that come with owning your own pool. Royal Pool & Spa offers hands-on instructions for new residential pool owners to make you a more knowledgeable pool owner.

Swimming Pool Basics You’ll Need To Know

  • Pool circulation. This is normally the most important aspect of pool maintenance. Good circulation means a pool will be less likely to have issues such as algae and dirty water. We will show you how your pool pump and filter pump clean the water for your pool.
  • Pool cleaning. Knowing how to properly clean your pool will help keep algae, stains and cloudy water from appearing. Cleaning includes vacuuming, skimming, and brushing. A pool skimmer is basically a net attached to a long pole, and allows you to collect any unwanted debris from the surface of your pool. Brushing your pool walls, ladders and corners twice a week will prevent algae from growing and allow chlorine or other chemicals to kill it. A pool vacuum comes in three varieties (suction-side, pressure-side, and robotic) and allows you to vacuum not only your pool walls and floor, but also the filter system equipment.
  • Water chemistry. Your pool’s chemistry can seem confusing because you have to juggle multiple pool chemicals. However, once you understand your pH, Alkalinity and chlorine readings, you can start adding them into your pool. We will also help you learn what each chemical does and how it affects the water and swimmers.

Our professionals will be sure to teach you every detail for your swimming pool care, so you can keep your pool maintained on your own in the future.
