Whether you came back from a vacation or you are finally taking care of your unused pool. It’s time to bring your pool back to life! We have rounded up a list of the basic and yet essential swimming pool cleaning tips to try at home for your 6-month or even older swimming pool.


Get rid of the debris and dirt

Debris, dust and dirt that may be collected on the top of the pool should be the first step in the cleaning process of your pool. Try to get as much debris out as you can. If there is old pool water residing in there, it may be hard to get all out of it. Nevertheless, clean out as much as possible so your filter system gets cleared out.

Drain the pool water

Next up is taking care of the pool water. If your pool has old water, that has been sitting there for months, then drain all of it out so you can have a clear image of the bottom of the pool.

Clean the filter system

There may be chances of a clogged filtration system, especially if you have let the pool water sit for long. This can also be caused by the dust and debris. Begin by removing any buildup that is inside the filtration system. This part may require you to backwash or clean the filter multiple times, depending on how clogged it may be.

 Check the pool equipment

Your pool equipment may be outdated and needs to be replaced. Depending upon how long it has been unused or by assessing its condition, check for your pool equipment such as the filter, pump, heater or sanitizer.

Scrub the pool walls and bottom
