Like Sharks searching in the water, side to side. Or Shark fishermen in boats fishing for Sharks, an old trick to get the Sharks hungry and active is to throw some blood in the water. Give it a little time, and watch the Sharks get active. Dangerous?
Don’t rock the boat!!
Pool Cleaning, pool tips , pool maintenance is a necessary and normal routine for pool owners. Depending on your expectations and standards, the pool owners expectations and standards, and the pool users expectations and standards, pool cleaning, cleaning care, and maintenance burden can be various levles of thoroughness and quality.
If pool users are used to and frequently use ponds, and lakes for swimming and recreation, then their expectations and standards may be different for a residential home swimming pool, than users and people who are used to perfectly clean and clear water in a residential home swimming pool.
Scents. One difference is the scent and smell of th water. Ponds and lakes have an earthy smell that sometimes includes mooldy and mossy smells or scents. Residential swimming pools have a scent of chlorine and other chemicals if the pool owners use the common pool cleaning techniques and resources used now a days. Usually, residential swimming pools, After being cleaned and prepared for swimming don’t have any living bugs, frogs, or creatures in the pool. Pool tips, and cleaning care.
The main areas of the swimming pool, pool, are the pool water, the pool container, and surrounding deck and walking areas.
This area needs a lot of attention, care, skimming, and cleaning.
The use of pole and net skimmers is best. A pool pump skimmer basket and filter also helps if you use a power pump and filter system.
Pole nets can also help clean the main area of water in the pool, although waiting for particles and leaves, bugs, etc. to sink to the bottom or float to the top allows easier cleaning.
Using a power pool pump and filter system is usually the standard method of cleaning the bottom of the pool surface in today’s standards. It is callled vacuuming the pool. A long hose with an average width of 2 to 3 inches, connects to a flat base attachment with wheels that attach to the end of the pole. The poles vary in length, although a pole that extends an approximate 16 to 20 feet in length is needed for most deep pools.
Note and Tip: Hard work, muscle power, frequent maintenance, and keeping up with the progress you have made are the way it is. Other options are available, but usually not as reliable.
Brushing and Scrubbing.
The pole is used for this cleaning with a brush attachment that can be removed and replaced with other attachments.
Brushing off the algae, mildew and the sides of the pool.
Before “shocking” the pool with chlorine pool shock allows the most algae to be killed in the main pool water area.
The brush is used in this area also, although a shorter pole makes it easier. Brush the top sides Before skimming the top of the water with the net.
Be careful when brushing the bottom of the pool surface if you want to vacuum up the debris soon.
Brushing the bottom of the pool surface is needed, although allow time for it all to settle back on the bottom, or be sucked through the filter before vacuuming the bottom of the pool. Note: The re-settling can take hours. The side walls of the pool might also need to be vacuumed after brushing.
These are some ofthe most common pool dek and walking area surfaces:
Concrete Pool areas
River rock pebble surfaces
The brushes might be different, although the work and method is the same. I have used power presssure washers and strong chemical solvents, although after all that, using a lot of water, a good brush, and effort gets very similar results without the obnoxious noise and toxic solvents.
Using a lot of water is essential.
Prepping the surface so it is thoroughly wet, and then scrubbing with a brush and water, moving the slime in the direction you want it to go.
Rinsing with follow up scrubbing washes away the grime.
Let dry to see results.
Make Notice and/or signs for areas of the deck that are slippery.
