Every pool master will agree with me that maintenance of the facility is a complicated process. Sometimes, you try your best in having the facility in the best condition possible. Nonetheless, the poor water quality or general level of maintenance remains the same, making it seem you’re in the rocket science field. It doesn’t have to be.
We know that having dirt on the bottom of the pool just after maintenance can be downright frustrating. There are a couple of ways to go about doing this.
Causes and the Resulting Problems
What happens is, you shock the water or you put in a clarifier to clear your water. And then you get either the junk, dirt, debris or small particles in pool water at the bottom.
Even pools with cartridge filters might run into this problem. Sometimes, not all the dirt gets absorbed into the filter.
Between bad weather and daily use of the facility, it is common for a light and fine dirty deposit to appear at the bottom of the pool.
And so what happens is that afterwards, the water gets all cloudy from the dirt being in there. Then you end up spending a lot of money on chemicals while trying to get things balanced out.
We’ve also found that if we try to clean the dirt off the bottom sometimes, it throws the pH off and you’ll have to use a lot of chemicals to get things back and balance again.
Do not panic. There are solutions to get rid of it.
The choice of the robot vacuum cleaner depends on the coating of your pool and the type of pool you have.
Generally, you have the choice between a robot that works with a battery and a robot that plugs into an electrical outlet. Some robots are even programmable: you just need to set the cleaning time to start it.
To avoid the deposit of large debris, leaves, insects, and other dirt in the facility, it is recommended to protect the water (as soon as you are not using the pool, of course). You can make use of a tarpaulin or a bubble blanket.
The cover protects the water from all debris, bad weather and also helps to maintain a good temperature. There are also safety covers that prevent accidents.
With a pressure side cleaner, this solution can work if you’d like to know how to clean leaves from the bottom of the pool.
Despite regular maintenance of both the water and the pool walls, it is normal for a fine, dirty deposit to form at the bottom of the pool.
This is due to the frequent use of the pool to the external elements deposited there (leaves, debris, earth, etc.).
Another possible cause is the filter which does not retain all the fine particles. The best solution is to use your vacuum cleaner.
