Having a clean and beautiful pool for the new season is the main priority especially keeping your pool tiles clean. In this article, we are going to talk about how to keep your pool tiles clean this summer.
Cleaning Pool Tiles
While you can usually tell if you need to clean tiles by the way the tiles look, there are a few circumstances that they need to be further inspected. Truthfully, you do not want to wait until the grime is noticeable to start cleaning the tiles. When you can visually notice that the tiles are not clean, that is when your pool is extremely dirty. You should clean tiles about every year or every other year so don’t worry that you need to have it done on a monthly basis.
Most of the time you are going to be able to use a muriatic acid mixture and a nonabrasive scouring pad to remove the hard water stains but if you aren’t seeing the results that you want, you should speak with a professional pool service so they can give your pool tiles a thorough cleaning.
Basic Pool Maintenance
When you have a swimming pool, you need to keep up the basic pool maintenance so when it does come time to clean tiles and do other monthly or yearly task, there isn’t going to be any unwelcome surprises due to neglect. If you do not want to keep up with your pool maintenance, you can hire a pool service company to keep up with maintenance tasks for low cost than the cost it would be to help your pool recover from an algae attack or repair problems.
Having your water tested to make sure the pH levels and chlorine levels are at the proper amounts is important. Ask your pool professional how often you should have it done for your location to make sure you do not under test and miss out on your pool being at the wrong level. If you notice that your levels are off too late, you may experience a cloudy pool or even some unfriendly algae.
If you want to make your life easier when it comes to keeping your pool clean, you can get an automatic pool cleaner that will help you with your tasks. Instead of having to brush your pool manually all the time, if you get a good automatic pool cleaner, you shouldn’t have much of a problem. You are still going to have to use your telescopic rod and skim your pool but the things that you might find more difficult should be much easier for you now.
