How and What to Clean the Pool Bottom?


Swimming in the pool is an excellent outdoor activity, an effective tempering procedure. An artificial pond, no matter which, stationary or portable, will create a special microclimate on the territory of a country house and help restore strength after hard work. To make swimming safe, bring positive emotions, the pool requires constant care. We will tell you how to clean the bottom of the pool from sediment.

What types of pollution is affected by the home pool?

During bathing, a lot of organic residues fall into the water, the pool, as a rule, is open for sunlight, stagnant warm water – all these factors create a favorable environment for the mass reproduction of bacteria, cyanobacteria, unicellular algae and other microorganisms.

Dust, plant pollen, leaves, small branches, and other small objects gather on the surface of the frame and inflatable pool. It should be noted that the pool, most often, is filled with ordinary tap water, the quality of which leaves much to be desired. Under the influence of all polluting factors, the acid-base balance of water changes both at the bottom and the walls of the pool:

  • mucous (or silty) sediment;
  • limescale;
  • rust;
  • accumulated solid debris accumulates.

How to clean the pool?

Even with an effective filtration system, it is necessary to regularly remove contaminants from the bottom of the pool using special tools. How to clean the bottom of the pool? If it is settled trash, use the net. A special vacuum cleaner is used to remove the sludge. Cleaning with it can be carried out without draining the water.

If strong limestone or plaque of a different origin has formed, a thorough mechanical cleaning must be carried out manually or using automatic devices with the end of the bathing season. Manual cleaning with special brushes and sponges is a long and laborious process.

This method is suitable for the care of a small pool. If the artificial water area is large, it is better to use special devices.

In some basins, the water gradually becomes rusty and iron does not precipitate. To do this, you need to use chemicals to turn ferrous iron into ferric, which forms an insoluble precipitate and can be collected from the bottom of the pool using available methods. It is important not to overdose the reagents to avoid chemical contamination of the pool. The method is selected individually. But to eliminate such pollution is necessary.

Perform mechanical cleaning of the bottom and walls of the pool every week. This will save time, effort and money. It is important to prevent the formation of persistent plaque, as this leads to damage to pool structures. Regular disinfection of water, thorough filtration will ensure the purity of water and save you from the time-consuming process of mechanical removal of sediment.
