Poolside moments with family and friends during summer – nothing compares! However, a nice pool requires regular maintenance. LaCase.mu guides you through 4 steps for a complete pool cleaning.

Water filtration

Filtration, the most important of all the steps, represents 80% of the cleaning. In short, it is the renewal of your pool water circuit. The pump and filter, connected by pipes, suck up the dirty water and repress the clean water. As the pool water needs to be filtered regularly, you must skip cleaning the filter. For this process, you can use a flocculent which brings together thin molecules, or a sand filter.

Disinfection 

This step is the chemical treatment after water filtration. To prevent any  inconvenience, you must eliminate most of the microbes in the pool water. To do this, use chlorine, bromine or active oxygen. For a complete disinfection, you can use a multiple-use chlorine or if you prefer, a less aggressive product with less chemical components… a salt chlorination system.

Maintain the water balance

Here is a rather complex step, but you can easily get through it by following the instructions. It is the one which ensures the quality of the water in your pool. Firstly, know that the water balance is maintained when the pH, the TAC (alkalinity) and TH (limestone) are up to standards. The pH should be between 7.2 and 7.4. You can measure this by using a pH electronic meter, strips or liquid tests. It is advisable to control once or twice a week. The ideal temperature for the TAC is between 10 to 25 degrees. For TH, which represents limestone rate in the water, magnesium treatment would be ideal as magnesium controls the quality of the water.

Daily cleaning

Pool maintenance must be a regular process. As filtration is not enough to remove all of the dirt, you need to do a manual cleaning at least once a week. You can use a broom, a scoop or a vacuum cleaner. To make things easier, use a robot one to seven times a week.
