Pool Shock Treatment
Pool shock refers to a powdered form of chlorine that is applied to treat pool water. Shocking your pool removes impurities that may or may not be seen by the naked eye. Let’s call them ABCs to keep it simple.
- Algae – Types of algae that grow in the swimming pool. While chlorine, or algaecide, does help control algae growth, only pool shock or “super chlorine” really kills them.
- Bacteria and bather waste – Bacteria can come from many different sources. While most bacteria can be harmless, others can be pathogenic. Pool shock kills bacteria from heavy use of the swimming pool or after a storm. Bather waste refers to skin, hair, cosmetics, oils, and body wastes like sweat and urine.
- Chloramines – Produces a strong smell in the pool. Similar when chlorine reacts with contaminants like bather waste. Pool shock removes this smell by “super chlorinating” the water.
Your pool filter does more than just removing dead bugs, leaves, and hair from your swimming pool. They also remove fine particles and other contaminants. Keeping your pool filters clean and functional is so essential.
As part of the larger pump system, the filters are also responsible for distributing chemicals evenly in the swimming pool. To keep it running smoothly, clean the filters regularly to remove the debris and keep them from being trapped in the filters.
pH Level Balancing
When your swimming pool’s pH levels are balanced, it is cleaner, safer, and more comfortable for you to swim in. It also helps protect your pool and pool equipment from damage.
Too little chlorine won’t kill bacteria and other contaminants, while too much chlorine can irritate your eyes and skin.
If the pH levels are too low, your pool and pool equipment can become corroded. If they are too high, you will see scale deposits, and the water will be cloudy.
Since there are a few chemicals involved in keeping the pH levels balanced, wouldn’t it be better for you if experts did the hard work?
Inground pools have built-in skimmers. These are the rectangular openings you see on the side. They are designed to draw water from the surface of the pool and into the filters. They help screen debris and contaminants before the water gets pumped back into the pool.
Skimmers work discreetly that’s why you won’t even notice them. But without them, the water could get cloudy and algae would grow faster. Without them, the pump would also be more prone to wear and tear and need replacement more often than recommended.
Cleaning and checking the condition of the skimmers help a lot to keep the pool clean and the pool equipment working properly.
Here are some things you can do to keep your swimming pool clean:
- Using a long-handled leaf skimmer, remove leaves, insects, and other debris that floats on the surface of the swimming pool.
- Trim trees or prune plants around the swimming pool. This will reduce the number of leaves that will find their way into the water.
At least once a week, it is important to brush the walls and floors of your swimming pool, as well as ladders and slides, if you have them. Brush the sediment towards the drain so it is easier to vacuum them. There are three types of pool vacuums. Find one that suits your needs.
- Pressure vacuum
- Robotic vacuum
- Suction vacuum
Checking Circulation of Water
Pool circulation refers to how the water moves around the pool to encourage water flow and transfer the fragments to the pool filter for a cleaner swimming pool. Poor circulation and filtration lead to the growth of algae.
Cleaning your swimming pool regularly with a pool brush is generally a good practice to further promote pool circulation. It clears out the areas that are not reached by the jets, breaks up debris, and removes the algae.
