Building a Pool When You Are Afraid of Water

Hi, my name is Molly, and a few years ago, we built a pool so that our autistic son could receive hydrotherapy at our home. However, as drowning is a common cause of death and injury among kids with autism, it petrified me to build a pool. However, we worked closely with a pool contractor to make sure that it was as safe as possible. I love the result, and although I am always careful and cautious, I am no longer afraid of having a pool. If you want tips and ideas on designing your pool (even if you are afraid of pools or water), you have come to the right place. I hope that this blog helps you.


Essential Things to Note About Swimming Pool Cleaning

Over time, you may notice your pool getting dirty, either from environmental debris or dirt brought in by anyone entering the swimming pool. There is also some dirt that you can't see with your naked eye — but this is taken care of by chlorine. However, some of it sticks to the walls of your swimming pool, making them slimy. That's why you need your swimming pool cleaned regularly. Here are some important things to note about swimming pool cleaning:

Visible Debris Removal

Depending on where your pool is located, you might see leaves and other floating debris. These can be sieved out using a pool strainer basket easily. This forms the first and easiest swimming pool cleaning step.

The debris can clog your pool filter and damage it, which in turn causes damage to other essential parts of your pool. The dirt is also ugly to look at — no one wants to use a dirty pool.

How to Clean Your Pool Walls and Floor

You might need to identify how quickly your pool walls get dirty. This may depend on how your pool is used and environmental factors. Cleaning a pool's walls and floor means draining the pool water and scrubbing them with a brush and detergent. This can be a lot of work, especially if your swimming pool is huge — you need people to help you.

Should You Clean Your Pool or Hire Professional Help?

If you have a large pool or a commercial pool, it is advisable to hire professional swimming pool cleaners. First, they have the required labour, and, even better, the staff is trained, qualified and experienced.

Secondly, they have the pieces of equipment required to clean your pool effectively. Some of these machines might be too expensive for you to afford, meaning you will end up purchasing cheap equipment that might do the job, but you have to work extra hard.

Thirdly, professional pool cleaners will do more than clean your pool. They will also inspect different parts of your swimming pool to ensure they have not been affected or damaged by debris.

Are Swimming Pool Cleaners Expensive?

This depends on various factors like the size of your pool and whether it is a commercial or residential pool. Professional pool cleaners might charge higher for larger and commercial swimming pools. However, since they are commercial pools, the income you receive from their use covers these costs.
