Make sure you are on a weekly vacuuming schedule for the pool. By vacuuming once a week, you can keep the water clear and help reduce the number of chemicals needed to maintain a healthy pH level. And make a note that before each time you vacuum, spend a few extra minutes scrubbing the walls and waterline tile, which will help decrease algae buildup and calcium deposits.
Familiarize yourself with the right tools you need to clean your pool. Certain brushes and vacuums work better in different types of pools.
