Fiberglass pools are inexpensive alternatives to the conventional pool system. However, as in any fixture in your home, you will have to spend time and effort cleaning it and keeping it well-maintained, if you want your investment to last you a long time. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
While draining is practically an integral part of conventional pool maintenance, this will only serve to damage your fibreglass swimming pool. The fact is, unless there’s been a flood that might have sent scores of bacteria into the water, or if the pool itself has been neglected for some time, there’s hardly any need for draining.
For heavy debris floating on your pool’s surface, you should vacuum these out by attaching one to your telescopic pole and attach a hose to the vacuum head right before you plunge it into the water. While automatic vacuums should be able to accomplish this job with little effort, you can do as much with a manual vacuum.
Filter Check and Water Testing
There are many cleaning practices which are pretty much the same for both fibreglass and traditional concrete pools. For one, you should constantly monitor the state of the filter and have it replaced when it gets too filthy to work efficiently. Checking your water’s chemical balance is also essential regardless of the type of pool you’re using.
