The swimming pool is a luxury in our houses. If the tiles or grout in the swimming pool is dirty, the water in it will also look dirty. Maintenance of pool is a necessary work, or swimming pool will become unhygienic and useless. Thus, a swimming pool must be cleaned properly once in a while. There are many ways to clean a swimming pool, below you can learn the easy and hard ways to clean the pool.

Cleaning The Tiles

Before cleaning anything, remove all the leaves and trash from the pool. Also, remove any object around the pool.

  1. There are some environment-friendly spray cleaners available in the market. You can use them to clean the tiles.
  2. Use a nylon brush and spray cleaner on the affected area. Scrub the stained area with a brush. If you have a small swimming pool, two men will be enough for this task. For a bigger pool, you need more manpower.
  3. You can also rent a pressure washer as well. The pressure washer uses water and turned it into pressured steamed when you point the nozzle at tiles and grout can clean all the dirt without using any other things. Note: Set the pressure between 2000 to 2600 PSI.
