Anyone with a pool should also invest in an automatic pool cleaner to do most of the hard work of pool cleaning. If the water is not kept clean you can easily get an ear infection or worse, algae could come to visit and it will very likely make itself at home. Pool cleaners can work away while you sit and relax by the side of the pool. But like many other machines they require a little maintenance to keep on rolling around, sucking up that debris from the pool.
Sometimes a pool needs to be cleaned with what is known as ‘shock treatment’. This is necessary when you notices any opacity in the water, green or red slime or even black spots that herald that dreaded black algae. It should be done regularly such as once a week, especially if you get a lot of leaves and other debris in the pool and don’t always remove it quickly.
