Discover how to clean your plastic pool in 3 steps
1. Empty the plastic pool
You must empty the dirty water from the detachable pool, to start cleaning it right after. It is best to do it often; This will prevent algae or mold from appearing. The more time passes, the more all that dirt will adhere to the surface and, therefore, the more difficult it will be to remove it.
2. Prepare the mixture
Simply fill a container with water and a few drops of white vinegar. With a cloth, proceed to clean the entire pool, rubbing especially the areas where there is more accumulated dirt.
An alternative to white vinegar is dishwashing soap, especially since the smell it gives off is more pleasant. In addition to the usual cloths, root brushes can be used, always being careful not to damage the plastic and avoid the dreaded punctures or breakage.
If the pool hasn’t been cleaned in a long time and a lot of dirt has accumulated, it’s a good idea to use a mix of water and bleach. More specifically, one part of bleach is diluted in three parts of water and then the walls and bottom of the pool are cleaned with a cloth.
3. Rinse it well
It is important to rinse it well with plenty of water to remove all traces of the mixture that was used. It is best to do it with a pressure hose. In any case, it should be rinsed several times. In addition, it is recommended to have a filter to avoid having to change the water constantly.
Other products that help make the water transparent are chlorine, whether liquid, pill or powder; salt to disinfect the water and active oxygen, which acts on the organic remains of the water.
Once the summer is over and it’s time to clean up the pool for good until next year, it’s always better to keep it clean and dry.
