The official start of spring is only about a week away. That means it’s time to prioritize getting your pool cleaned out again. You might have heard of a technique called brushing out the pool. It’s time to find out more about it. The spring pool season is here again, so let’s get started!
Dealing with Calcium Scale
One reason to brush out your pool is to fight off the effects of calcium scale building up in your pool. The problem with the scale is that it can turn your pool water into an eyesore. It also means that your pool looks uninviting even if the water is fine. Brushing out the pool during the early days of the spring pool season means you can prevent stains from being baked in by direct exposure to sunlight. Some of the substances that leave stains behind include oils, sweat, dirt, and dust. If you are afraid of mold, mildew, and algae from flourishing in your pool, then this is another reason to start brushing out your pool before you open it up and organize your first pool party this year.
The Time to Do It
You might be wondering when the right time to do it is. Any time after your pool has undergone pebbling or plastering. Brushing the pool gets rid of the dust that will be left behind by this process. Try putting chemicals into the pool to treat the water in preparation for everyone joining in on the fun. By doing this, you can make the pool cleaner. The act of brushing helps dispense the chemicals and make them spread around your pool. Brushing your pool out multiple times a day for a few weeks can also discourage the further growth of algae in your pool water.
A Quick Guide
So now let’s turn to a quick guide on how to complete this task. A short pole can help you clean off the walls of the pool. The pole should be a telescoping one that will allow you to reach the bottom of the pool without having to get into it just to clean it. Clean everything in and attached to the pool, and finally, clean out the drains of the pool too, just to be sure nothing gets clogged in there!
