Swimming Pool Maintenance, What and When?

To keep your swimming pool crystal-clear and avoid teary eyes, here is a list of routine maintenance and how often it should be performed:


Clean leaves or other debris from the surface of the pool. It's always easier to skim leaves off the top than swimming for them on the bottom.

Clean the skimmer and the pump baskets.

Check the pH levels and adjust if necessary.

Check the disinfectant levels and adjust if necessary.


Hose off the pool deck.

Vacuum the pool.

Use a brush to clean any scum clinging to the walls at the waterline.

Clean or backwash the pool filter.

Use a large dose of chlorine to "shock" the pool water.
