Pool Maintenance

Pool maintenance may seem a hard task for non-professional people. Because all chemicals and test kits used in pool maintenance may be scary for most people. But after buying all the necessary kits and following a cleaning programme, pool care will not be so difficult. In order to swim in a disinfected pool of which sterile swimming conditions have been provided, there are some steps to take.

Steps to take in pool care:

Part 1: Purchasing equipment

  • First, chlorinationmethod must be specified because in pool care chlorine usage is important.
  • Test equipment must be provided. An important aspect of an appropriate pool care is the frequency of testing of alkalinity, pH, calicum hardness and chlorine. PEKCAN HAVUZ is the best address to provide all the pool and test equipments for your pool.
  • A cleaner must be purchased. In all pools, a motorized pool cleaner is used. Pool cleaners are of three types so you have to decide on which type of cleaner to use.
  • A scraper and a brush must be obtained. Scraper and brush system are for the dust and dirt that can not be collected by the pool cleaner
  • Chemicals must be purchased. When buying pool chemicals, you must get help from a Professional because pool chemicals are important chemicals that may cause serious problems in the user’s health. You can provide all kinds of chemicals from PEKCAN HAVUZ such as chlorine, calcium, alkalinity stabilisator, algae preventors, brom tablets  

Part 2: Pool Care

  • Pool cleaner must be used once a week. This will reduce the amount of chemical to be added to the pool. After each use, cleaner’s filter must be checked and cleaned.
  • Pool filter’s cleaning and care must also be made. There are three types of filters: cartridge, sand and soil with diatom. Each filter type needs different cleaning techniques. You must be sure that the system is closed and all air is absorbed from the filter for all filter types. It is best to make the filter cleaning in the beginning of the season. You must take professional help for your pool filter’s celaning.
  • Pool must be balanced. A chemical test kit must be used once a week to make sure that the pool has the optimum chemical levels. You should measure three parameters: pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness. Making the tests of these parameters regularly will extend the economic life of your pool equipments.
  • Pool must be chlorinated. The optimum levels for chlorine are between 1-4 ppm. Chlorine may be used both in powder and liquid form. When using chlorine, a glove and a protector eyeglass must be used for safety purposes.
  • Pool must be shocked. This must be made once a week. This may remove the cloudy view, the chlorine odor and the eye damage.
  • An algae preventor must be used. After a sharp rain,  millions of microscobic plant organism may enter to your pool and cause algae. If this problem is not prevented, filter will be chocked up, the water circulation will decline and the efiiciency of the chemicals will reduce.

Part 3: Daily Pool Care

  • Baskets must be controlled. In each pool, there are at least one basket filter that collects the small and big dirt and dust. It is important to check them very often as the dead insects and frogs are in here. If not controlled, the dissociating carcass may be a serious threat for the pool users.
  • Surface control must be made. It may seem as a burden to check the pool surface everyday but if this surface is left without control for days, small bacteria may collect water spiders.
  • The edges must be brushed. If pool care is made properly, there may not be the need to brush the edges everyday.
  • The surroundings of the pool must be kept clean. A dirty pool deck will cause dust in the pool.
