When should you brush your pool?

Savannah Barclay   |   Member since 2016  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

Brushing your pool should be done a minimum of once per week, but preferably twice a week. It only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish, so it's not a big job. But it is a very important one to remember to do. If you 're skimming your pool twice a week, take a few extra minutes to brush it as well.

Also know, should I brush the pool before vacuuming?

Once a week, use a pool brush to brush the sides and ladder of the pool so dirt and grime don't build up on them. You should also vacuum your pool out once a week using a pool vacuum, which moves along the bottom of the pool and sucks up any debris.

Beside above, can you over shock a pool? Start off by adding 3 or 4 gallons, and if you see no results overnight, add 3 or 4 more gallons the next day. Continue this process until you notice the water changing color to either cloudy white, light green or clear. YOU CANNOT OVER SHOCK A POOL ! The more you add, the quicker it will clear !.

Also Know, why do I have to brush my new pool?

After Adding Chemicals: Many powdered or granular pool chemicals don't dissolve right away when added to the pool water. Brushing helps to dissolve and disperse the chemicals so they won't etch, stain or scale the surface.

Is it OK to run pool pump 24 hours a day?

Chemicals that you add to your pool while the water is circulating don't need to be recirculated; they will stay mixed even if you don't pump the water continually. Although it's generally recommended that all the pool water undergo filtration every 24 hours, the pump does not need to run all the time.
