Clean your pool in 5 easy steps


A backyard pool needs proper and ongoing maintenance to ensure it stays clean, algae-free, and enjoyable for friends and family all year round. Follow these 5 steps for simple and effective domestic pool maintenance.

Irrigear Solution

1. Circulate the water

Circulate pool water at least 8 hours per day during the swimming season and filter at least 4 hours per day in the off-season. Pool water must be circulated to properly mix pool chemicals and to avoid bacteria and algae growth.

2. Brush and vacuum

The walls and floor of the pool must be brushed and vacuumed at least once per week to prevent the growth of bacteria and algae. Since swimming pools all have areas with little or no natural circulation (or circulation achieved through an automatic pool cleaner), manual brushing is vital to ensure complete cleanliness.

3. Clean the filter, empty skimmer and pump baskets

The filter is the most important – and most expensive - piece of pool equipment, removing both visible debris and microscopic matter. Remove material trapped in the filter by either backwashing (consult manufacturer’s guidelines) or by cleaning the cartridge filter. Clean the cartridge filter by soaking (consult specialist for solution), removing oils, scale and deeply embedded debris. Follow by hosing gently with fresh water. The skimmer and pump basket should be emptied at least once per week – more if necessary – to protect and maximise performance of your pool’s pump and filter.

4. Test water

Test your water two or three times per week in the swimming season. The amount of people, pets and animals using your pool, the weather, and product application all affect pool water quality and its necessary pH balance. Alternatively bring in sample to your local Irrigear store for a complimentary test and advice.

5. Use the right chemicals and products

After accurate water testing and a review of use and equipment, your local Irrigear store will supply you with a maintenance program using the proper chemicals and quantities. Incorrect use of chemicals may cause long term damage to your pool, costly rehabilitation and actual harm to yourself, so be sure to consult an expert and have the right piece of mind with one your home’s most important assets.
