    In order to keep the pool water fresh and clear, you should take around an hour a week to maintain the pool. Apart from the mechanical cleaning of the pool, you should also check the water quality and keep it in balance with additives. More precisely this means: It is best to fish coarse dirt and leaves out of the pool manually every day with a landing net. There are a number of tools to help you maintain your pool: With telescopic wipers, brushes or vacuum cleaners you can remove dirt from the pool walls and floor. There are also pool robots that do this job fully automatically and save you time. Mechanical water purification is performed by the integrated filter systems, which automatically suck in, filter and flush contaminated water back into the pool. Our specialist companies adjust the filter system so that the water is completely circulated three times a day, i.e. running for six to ten hours a day. As a result, the pool water already receives optimum basic cleaning. In order for the filter system to work perfectly, it should be cleaned once a week by backwashing, which - depending on the filter system - can be carried out manually or automatically.

    Most of the manual work is done for you with the mechanical cleaning of the pool and water. Now check the water quality once a week by measuring the pH value and checking the disinfectant content. The pH value should be between 7.2 and 7.4, because the disinfectant only works effectively in this pH range - you achieve maximum germ killing with a minimum of disinfectant. There are several possibilities for disinfection: The most common form is the addition of chlorine. Chlorine is inexpensive, easy to handle and unbeatable in killing germs. There is also the addition of so-called active oxygen. This variant is chlorine-free, less powerful and suitable for allergy sufferers, for example. Disinfection with ozone can only be found in public areas, because it is very complex in terms of process technology. Those who prefer a natural form of water treatment instead of a chemical additive are well advised to use biofiltration in a natural pool.
