Swimming Pool Basics You’ll Want to Know

You don’t have to memorize everything there is to know about owning a pool when you hire a professional to handle the maintenance and repairs. Still, it’s helpful to know the essentials so you can keep an eye out for any potential issues.

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 if you desire.
