Having your own swimming pool in the backyard is like a dream come true. Yet, when that pool arrives into the real picture & a couple of fancy days pass away, the nightmares pertaining to the tedious maintenance dawn upon us. Many home owners prefer to subscribe to the services of a professional maintenance company. However, it comes as a costly option. There are simple DIY ways of keeping your pool well functional.
A pool is subjected to extreme levels of moisture, which is why it becomes an easy substrate for bacterial & algal growth. This creates a slimy layer which can deteriorate the water quality & also cause accidents. One can start the maintenance with cleaning the pool filter. Go for several cycles of back washing to clear the filter. Use a algaecide to tackle with the algal growth. You can also use a brush to scrub the slime layer off the walls.
