Maintaining Your Pool Using A Automatic Pool Cleaner

Automatic pool cleaner robotAs a pool owner – or spa pool owner it is important to keep the water clean and healthy and in the right balance.

Swimming water is always infected with a variety of bacteria and most of these bacteria are introduced by bathing humans (and animals) and the debris from particular trees and other plants in the garden.

In addition, pool water gets in contact with thousands of insects, but with the proper water hygiene, this is not a problem.

Did you know the way that:

  • Active swimming and play can add up to 1 liter of sweat per hour adult person to the water.
  • That 1 ml. saliva can add millions of microorganisms to the water.
  • The water in the pool or spa is added thousands of micro-organisms from mucus in the nose.
  • Surface wounds and infections can infect the water.
  • A dog can add bacteria to the water equivalent to 30 humans.

That is why it is so important that the water in your pool or spa pool is continuously monitored and preferable once a day in periods when the use is very frequent and the water temperature is high. However, this is very simple and you can take advantage of the different kits available in the market. Using a automatic pool cleaner robot, like the Dolphin pool cleaner or similar brands, will greatly improve the water quality. See dealers in “water management” in the Shopping Guide.

Pool Algae Removal

Algae likes the wet environment and with the conditions present in pool water, they can multiply very quickly. For example, heavy rain and many bathers people causes algae to multiply dramatically. However, a properly maintained swimming pool or spa pool, will never seen this. Some algal types cannot be removed by the pool filter and it therefore requires the addition of chemicals (e.g. chlorine) and the right pH balance, to get to grips with these algae. A swimming pool that looks like this is not preferable! Using a automatic pool cleaner robot, like the Dolphin pool cleaner which cleans the pool continuously can greatly reduce the buildup of algae.

How do I get and maintain a good water hygiene?

Chlorine is the most important and active chemical agent used to remove algae and bacteria from your water. It is available mostly as granular, liquid and tablets, in many different variations. The use of chlorine in bath water to disinfect the algae and bacteria from sweat, insects, etc. you can achieve hygienic and inviting pool water. However, when algae attacks are very dramatic, especially from black water algae, as set in the pool bottom and sides, it may be necessary to combine manual pool cleaning with a hard bristled brush to remove algae. Please make sure that any lining should not be damaged from the use of the hard brush. Again an automatic pool cleaner robot, like the Dolphin pool cleaner will be of great help and save you from a lot of work. In the most difficult areas there may be discoloration of the pool sides / lines. Remember that the draining of water from the swimming pool and spa pool must be in drains and not in the garden due to environmental reasons.

But before that chlorine is added, it is essential to check and adjust the waters pH value. The pH scale is from 0 (acid) to 14 (Base) and where 7 is neutral. An optimal pH of pool water is a level of 7.2 to 7.5. PH kits can quickly check the water pH and these kits are available in many variants. If pool water is out of pH balance, it can cause irritation of the eyes and skin, and it also eliminates the effects of chlorine in pool water. Chlorine addition is ineffective if the pH balance is not okay. Moreover, a too high or low pH means that the life of the pump, lines and other pool facilities are shortened significantly due to larger corrosion. It is therefore important to regulate water pH before the addition of chlorine. There are many possibilities to regulate the pH of the water and it depends on which way the pH must be regulated.

NB: Please note that adding chemicals to pool water, including chlorine, may only be done observing the safety instructions in the product manuals. These concerns include that must be respected many (min. 6) hour intervals between addition of ph products and chlorine products to avoid harmful chlorine vapors. See distributors of products to regulate water balance in Chemistry SHOPPING GUIDE.
