Pool Maintenance 101: Why Skimming and Brushing are Your Best Friends

Think of your pool like your kitchen. Even if you don’t cook a huge meal, a few dishes still end up in the sink! Your pool gathers debris similarly – and regular skimming and brushing are crucial for keeping it sparkling and problem-free. At Aqua Bright Pool Service, we’re passionate about educating customers on the simple steps that make a huge difference to their pool’s health.

Skimming: Keeping the Surface Pristine

Leaves, bugs, and windblown debris – it all ends up on your pool’s surface. Why skimming is important:

  • Prevents Clogs: Skimming removes debris before it sinks and potentially clogs your filter, which strains equipment and raises maintenance costs.
  • Cleaner Water: Floating debris can start to decay, impacting water clarity and requiring more chemicals to keep things balanced
  • Looks Nicer: No one wants to swim in a pool full of leaves! Skimming helps maintain a clean and inviting appearance.

Brushing: The Anti-Algae Weapon

Pool walls and floors aren’t immune to buildup! Brushing is key, because:

  • Fights Algae: Algae spores love to cling. Brushing dislodges them before they become a major, murky problem.
  • Circulation Boost: Brushing stirs up water near the bottom, preventing stagnant areas where contaminants can lurk.
  • Longer Plaster Life: Consistent brushing helps prevent staining and uneven wear on plaster surfaces, prolonging their lifespan.
