Cleaning the Pool Filter

Just as the pure logic would suggest it, a filter is one of the most “hardworking” parts of absolutely any given pool of any given size. Given this factor, a pool maintenance is never truly complete, until you do everything it takes to clean the pool’s filter. Just so you know, there are 3 major types of pool filters: cartridge, sand, and diatomaceous earth. While there are varying maintenance procedures for each type, all require systematic cleaning depending on the type of filter…

Maintain the pH Level

While there’s no need to go too deep into the science of it, checking and maintaining the healthy and safe pH levels under your control is vital for any swimming pool owner. Moreover, pool water must be tested on a regular basis just to make sure that it really is clean and healthy. The pH scale is a measurement of acidity or alkalinity that runs from 0 to 14. A reading between 7.2 and 7.8 is ideal; this range is safe for swimmers and helps sanitizers work at top efficiency.
