Pool cleaning – The basics
The first line of defense in maintaining a clean swimming pool is to maintain proper chemical consistency and ensure you have adequate circulation from the pump and filter. However, this will not prevent your pool from becoming a cloudy swamp if you don’t take steps to keep it clean.
There are a number of different ways to keep a pool clean, so let’s take a look at them one by one:
Manual Cleaning – This is the tried-and-true method of using elbow grease to clean your pool. The tools you need for manual cleaning include a telescopic pole (or two), skimmer net, vacuum head, and brush. Manual cleaning undoubtedly works, but it is labor intensive.
Robotic Pool Cleaners – These are most common automatic pool cleaners but they are expensive. There are advantages and drawbacks to these systems, which we will review below. You will also still need the traditional cleaning items mentioned above, on occasion.
Suction and Pressure Side Cleaners – These systems attach to the filtration system. There are risks associated with suction-side cleaners,and pressure-side cleaners have their own shortcomings, but these are cost-effective pool cleaning solutions for many homeowners.
In-floor pool cleaning system – While these systems have been around since the 1970s, they have surged in popularity due to more reliable construction. This is especially true in Arizona. In-floor pool cleaning systems have trouble dealing with leaves, which is not a significant problem in the desert climate. If you don’t already have an in-floor system you don’t have to worry about it because it cannot be retrofitted.
Manual pool cleaning supplies – the products you need
Now let’s break down all of the various things you need to maintain a clean pool. It’s always a good idea to keep manual pool cleaning supplies on hand, even if you have an automated pool cleaner. Not only will you be prepared if something goes wrong with your system, but even the best automated cleaners have shortcomings that manual cleaning supplies can make up for.
Telescopic Poles – These should be in every pool owner’s arsenal of pool cleaning supplies. These poles can extend out to long distances that allow to reach every part of your pool from the deck. The most common attachments for telescopic poles are vacuum heads, brushes, and skimmer nets, all of which we sell online and in our Phoenix store.
Skimmer Nets – You will use this almost as much as your telescopic pole. It is used to collect debris from anywhere in your pool, including leaves, toys, insects, and unlucky cell phones. We sell both bag skimmers and flat skimmers. Bag skimmers can hold more debris, but they’re kind of hard to empty out. As will all of your pool cleaning supplies, we recommend buying higher quality nets because they will last longer and work better. You should skim your pool every day.
Brushes – Like your skimmer net, this attaches to your telescopic pole so that you can scrub away dirt, algae, and grime from your interior pool surfaces. Failure to address algae building with direct contact will eventually compromise the water quality, no matter how large of a pump or filter you use. Pool brushes are made from different materials for different interior pool surfaces. Stainless steel and nylon brushes are used on unpainted concrete pools. Use only stainless steel brushes on Gunite pools, and only nylon brushes on painted concrete, vinyl, or fiberglass pools. You should brush your pool a couple of times a week, and if you already have an algae problem you will likely need take further steps to eliminate it.
Vacuums – To vacuum your pool by hand, you need a vacuum head that attaches to your telescopic pole and a hose that attaches to the head. Some pools also require a vacuum plate or skim head. Using a pool vacuum is pretty much like vacuuming your carpet, if your vacuum cleaner had a 16 foot pole attached to it. You should vacuum when you brush the pool, about every two days, but it’s a job that few people enjoy.
Automated pool cleaning – Robotic vacuums
If the tedium of vacuuming your pool every other day is getting you down, it’s time to consider investing in a robotic pool vacuum. While these systems can’t maintain a perfect pool, they can significantly cut down on your labor (or your kid’s labor, if you’re lucky). These units work by automatically wandering around your pool to remove debris and grime. It can also be therapeutic to sit and watch the pool cleaning robot work while you sip on a cold beer.
Phoenix in-floor pool cleaning system parts
As opposed to pressure-side and suction-side pool cleaners, these units run on your home’s power and not the pool’s filtration system. This prevents unnecessary wear and tear on the filtration system, which actually reduces energy usage. The best robotic pool cleaners not only pick up debris of any size, they also scrub the pool as they do their thing, which means far less work for you. You will need to empty the robot’s filter, and these units aren’t cheap. However, the long-term savings makes these the best pool cleaning option for most pool lovers.
Automated pool cleaning – Suction-side cleaners
These units also travel around your pool while picking up debris and scrubbing, but they are powered by a hose that hooks into the suction line of your pumping system. These systems are easy to maintain and have fewer moving parts than robotic cleaners, but the increased pull on your pump will add to its wear and increase energy usage.
It also won’t work if your pump isn’t running, so if you want to use it at night, hopefully you’re a sound sleeper. It’s also worth noting that collected debris gets filtered through your existing filtration system, so if it’s not capable of handling material found in the bottom of the pool, you should avoid this option.
Automated pool cleaning – Pressure-side pool cleaners
Just like their cousin above, these units handle the dirty work but they hook into the pressure side of the pumping system. While this pool cleaning system lacks the inherent dangers of suction-side cleaners, it still lacks the cleaning power of other options. These units collect debris in their own mesh bags, leaving your filtration system free to do it’s intended job. You will have to empty the bag out and you still have the extra pull on your pump, which has to run for the cleaner to work.
Phoenix in-floor pool cleaning systems – We have the parts you need
In-floor pool cleaning systems are becoming more and more popular in Phoenix, where they are able to do their job without becoming clogged by leaves and other debris found in other locales. These systems are an option when buying a new pool and they cannot be retrofitted, so you either have one or you don’t.
Phoenix in-floor pool cleaning systems have a number of advantages over other systems. They are quiet and run automatically because they are built into the pool itself. Dirt and debris is collected by the system throughout the day and night, so your pool remains in a consistent state of cleanliness. They are also designed specifically for each pool, so it’s fully optimized to maintain the cleaning needs of that pool.
Phoenix in-floor pool cleaning systems can be powered with electricity, natural gas, solar, or propane, which means you don’t have to install a new energy source to use this cleaner.
The drawbacks to an in-floor system are few, but noteworthy. They are the most expensive pool cleaning option. However, they may also add value to your home, so the initial investment may be justified. Another drawback stems from the need to hire a professional to deal with repairs, unless you understand how these systems operate.
We have all of the Phoenix in-floor pool cleaning system parts you need to perform any necessary task. If you’re having trouble with your system, we can come to your home and troubleshoot the issue before dong a full repair.
