How Often Should A Pool Be Vacuumed?

Routine washing, chemical addition and vacuum repair procedures are required for the pool. There are a number of frequencies in each task that vary from task to task. The pool must be vacuum-free and free from debris and other contaminants. Vacuum varies between manual and automatic.


Types of Pool Vacuums

The pool can be disposed of by a vacuum pool. While your filter captures a lot of dirt, nothing where a vacuum enters is captured. Manually as well as automatically, there are two key vacuum types.

Manual Pool Vacuums

Hand vacuum is ideal for highly dirty, clean baths. Robot pool vacuums are perfect if they are already reasonably clean to keep the pool clean. Self-cleaning vacuums are not suitable, however, for processing a very dirty waste pool. Then consider hiring a manual cleaner or a professional bath cleaning service to make your pool clean for the first time.


Automatic Pool Vacuum

Automated or robot vacuuming are self-cleaning equipment that is electrically powered to clean your pool floor and bottom pool walls. These automated presses have the same type of manual vacuum cleaning, but manual operation is largely carried out.


Solar powerful "skimmers" float to suck down floating waste on the surface of a pool, but don't give you real ability to scrub vacuum from your pool.


Can vacuuming remove algae from a swimming pool?

Algae can be hard to remove, especially in corners and cracks of your swimming pool. It can help to prevent algae, because vacuuming alone does not probably kill every algae in your pool: by removing waste, such as leaves and other organic matter, you will maintain your pool water clean and deter the production of algae.


So how often should you vacuum your pool?

Normally you do not have to vacuum a pool more frequently than once a week during the swimming season. But you may need to vacuum your pool more frequently, sometimes. You need to vacuum the pool when:


  • Frequently used pools - If you use your pool, especially with kids, very heavily, you will probably have to vacuum more often. Most kids want to get out of the water, run around and hop back. When you do this, you'll get dust and grass and who knows what else in the pool with you.  Naturally, it is not just children who can carry waste with them into the pool. Adults may be guilty as well.

  • After a typhoon- If you have a storm or typhoon, particularly when the wind is stronger, you probably end up in the pool with dust and other waste. Ideally, you should not leave the pool unclean until your next weekly vacuum so do it as soon as possible.

  • Algae - If you have an extensive algae then more frequent vacuum, maybe for waste, may be appropriate as well as the use of chemicals. Before you vacuum in this case, clean the walls and floor thoroughly.

  • Autumn - In autumn it is necessary to vacuum more often, particularly if there are tresses around or near the pool. The leaves and any organic type, which can be put on the bottom of a pool, promote algal growth. You certainly don't want to do that. Therefore it may be appropriate to vacuum and remove the leaves with a net 2-3 times a week in the fall.
