To keep your pool sparkling and blue, there are a few basic steps to take for maintenance. First, you want to make sure your pump is running efficiently and at full capacity. Your pump keeps the water moving, from the pool to the filter back to the pool. If your pump is not working properly or at all, then your pool is not being properly filtered or circulated. Second, you want to make sure that your filter is also working efficiently and to max capacity. The filter removes dirt, debris, oils, lotions, etc. from the water. This ensures that you are swimming in clean pool water.
