Four effective tips to keep your Intex pool liners clean
Popular in the market as a ‘starter’s pool,’ Intex pool comes with the ease of assembly. They are available in a wide range of sizes and frame structures. These pools are ready to be filled with water in a short duration. The company markets the pool as sturdy due to its triple-layered laminated sidewalls.
The Intex pool liners are designed to sit above ground on a level surface. However, the problem with above ground pools is that they do not have the filters that in-ground pools have. This is why they run a major risk of getting dirty. Hence, it becomes important to clean your pool properly to prevent its liners from damage. Proper usage of tools and guidelines for cleaning the walls and floor of pool liners can help you reduce your scrubbing time immensely.
- Applying minor pressure with a brush, scrub the walls and floor of the pool. This practice will help you remove algae, grime, dirt or debris that may be stuck to the material of the pool liner.
- For your Intex pool liners to be spotless, you need to determine the cause of the stain. Stains that are green or brown are most likely caused by organic substances such as algae or other plant matter. Stains that are reddish brown are likely caused by rust. You can choose a suitable stain remover for your dirty pool and clean it up.
- There are also ways by which you can clean your Intex pool liners naturally. This involves correcting the pool’s water chemistry. Organic stains may be removed without the need to remove the liner or do the vigorous scrubbing. For this, the pH level should be between 7.2 and 7.6, and the chlorine levels should be maintained between 1.5 and 2.5.
- Alkalinity levels should be at 80 to 100 parts per million.
Stains that refuse to budge organically can be removed with a bleach solution made from one part bleach and two parts water.
