How to Clean an Above Ground Pool

Cleaning the pool is very time-consuming and it can be quite difficult if you don’t have the proper cleaning tools. If your swimming pool is above ground, it can be even more challenging, because above ground pools don’t have the filters that in-ground pools do, so they may gather more dust and debris. The good news is that you can use a couple of efficient and quick methods to clean your above ground pool. Here’s how.

Drain the pool

The first step to clean your above ground pool is to drain the water from the pool. This is relatively easy to do. To get it started simply attach the discharge hose to your pool’s drain and place the opposite end of the hose into the location where you want the water to be drained. However, it’s important to make sure that you pump the water into a sewer drain or other safe location to ensure that everything goes smoothly. This process is not at all time consuming; after all, the amount of time that it will take to completely drain the pool simply depends on the size of the pool.

Clean the pool liner

After you have fully drained the above-ground pool, you need to move to the second step, which is to clean the pool liner. The most easiest and efficient method is to mix some liquid soap with warm water in a large bucket and use it once it begins to sud. Dish-washing liquid is considered to be the best solution for cleaning the above-ground liner and the best part about is that it’s very affordable. You can also use specially-made pool liner cleaning solution, but these products are generally very expensive.

Use a cleaning tool to clean the surface of the pool

In order to clean the entire surface of the pool, you need to use some specific tools that are designed for taking care of this job. Using a brush, a mop and a sponge is basically all you need in order to scrub and clean the floor, sides and walls of the pool but if you want to do a more efficient job, consider investing in a robotic pool cleaner. There is a wide range of robotic pool cleaners available on the market, so when choosing one make sure that it is specially designed for cleaning an above-ground pool. On you can find reviews of both above ground and under ground pool cleaners. These reviews can help you with deciding on an adequate robotic cleaner for your pool.

Refill the pool

The forth and final step of cleaning and maintaining your above-ground pool is to refill it. You need to make sure that all the water is drained and that the entire surface of the pool is sparkling clean. Only after that you can start refilling your swimming pool.
