Automatic pool cleaners are ideal for cleaning the swimming pool and can save a lot of hard work. Some are good for large debris such as leaves and grass, while others are made to clean the water of small particulate that makes it cloudy. More expensive cleaners do both, but what they all have in common is using up power.
So how can you keep that pool cleaner and save money? If your pool tends to have a lot of leaves and grass in it, the best thing to do is remove it before it gets to the pool, then you will be able to purchase the kind of cleaner that attends to the finer particulate. This can save costs in power and in the kind of cleaner purchased.
- Remove large trees and shrubs from the vicinity of the pool.
- If they are not on your property, you won’t be able to do this, so instead, install a pool blanket and use it whenever you are not using the pool.
- Be sure to prune and to remove dead leaves from the garden and path.
- You may be able to use a roll of fly screen and anchor it around the edges of the pool.
