How Often Should You Have Your Pool Cleaned?
In general, a pool owner should have their pool cleaned once every 2 weeks for best results. This time frame may vary depending on the type of filtration system you have in use and how many people use your pool. For example, if there is a family of 8 in your household and you have a broken back-up system in use, it would be in your best interest to move up the cleaning time frame to once a week or even twice a week.
What Types Of Chemicals Are Used To Clean Pools?
There are two types of cleaners used in the pool industry. One is the “three-step” approach, which can be expensive and not very effective. The other type is the product called “scent free”, which is safe for your family and pets, but unfortunately do not last very long or leave behind much of a scent, making it necessary to reapply.
What is the “three-step” method? It is essentially the use of three types of cleaning products in an attempt to eliminate algae, bacteria and scum. The first step uses a cleaner that will dissolve the algae. The second step employs a metal sequestrant, which will trap metals so they cannot come into contact with water and cause staining. Finally, the third step utilizes a sequestering agent for phosphates, which can help prevent algae growth.
The problem with this method is that it requires a fairly large amount of work over a period of four to six days to achieve success. In addition, it can be quite expensive if you have a large pool. when it is time to re-clean or disinfect the pool for a season, you may have to hire a professional pool cleaner.
Does adding a “scent-free” product help? There are a few “scent-free” options available today, which have been designed to be safe for your family and pets. In the past, many of these products left behind a smell that was not very pleasant. However, their formulas have been recently redesigned and made more effective at eradicating algae from the water without any smell.
The downside to this method is that you will have to reapply it every week or two until your algae problem has been resolved.
