Maintain a Crystal Clear Pool All Week Expert Tips from Low Buck Pools

pool tips for a healthy clean pool

Keeping your pool clean and inviting doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With the right approach and a few simple tips, you can enjoy sparkling, pristine water all week long. At Low Buck Pools, we’re here to share our expert advice on how to keep your pool in top shape between professional maintenance visits.

Regular Filter Cleaning

Ensure your pool filter is cleaned according to manufacturer recommendations, typically every 3 to 6 months. A clean filter is essential for optimal filtration and water clarity.

Maintain Proper Water Level

Keep your pool water level halfway up the skimmer to ensure efficient debris removal. Too low, and debris may bypass the skimmer basket; too high, and debris won’t be skimmed effectively.

Optimize Pump Speed

Run your pump at a high enough RPM to ensure debris is being captured by the skimmer. Start with a low speed and gradually increase until you achieve the desired flow rate. Running the pump in the morning helps remove surface dust and pollen for a clean pool throughout the day.

Check Skimmer Baskets

After high winds or storms, check skimmer baskets for debris buildup. A full basket can prevent water from reaching the filter, leading to overheating. Running your pool cleaner during filter cycles helps remove dirt and debris from the pool floor.

Brushing and Cleaning

Regularly brush steps, benches, and sun shelves between cleanings to keep your pool spotless. Pool sweeps are effective at cleaning the pool floor but may not reach these areas. Brushing ensures thorough cleaning and prevents dirt buildup.

Optimal Return Line Positioning

Point return lines downward and at an angle to maximize filtration and circulation. Positioning return lines toward steps helps clean them automatically and ensures even distribution of treated water throughout the pool.
