Removing Debris and Toys from your pool

It is a very common occurrence for toys to be left in your pool by the kids. However, it is a very good habit to form and teach kids to remove them and out them away after they are done playing. This is for a couple of reasons, toys left in the pool can get caught in the skimmers and soak up chlorine. Also, if you leave toys in the pool they can mold from laying in the water for too long, and you do not want that. If your pool is located in an area with a lot of foliage such as leaves and grass this can cause phosphates and it can in turn cause your pool water to be green. So to avoid these issues you need to clean out your skimmer baskets daily, and check/empty the automatic pool sweep bag. This should not take you very long to do, and in the end you will be glad you took the time to do it. Little problems can turn into big ones if they are not handled properly.

Leaves, branches, and even twigs can be a huge pain when you are a pool owner. If you are able too, have someone come and remove any hanging branches from around where your pool is located.
