Pool Maintenance Tips For Sydney Homeowners

To keep your pool’s water sparkling clean, a few basic maintenance steps are required. Find information on the usage of products, care and how to test your water for easy pool maintenance in this section.

Circulation – The Role of the Pump

The center of the circulation system is the pump. It moves water from the pool and sends it through the filter for removal of any dust, dirt and debris prior to sending it back to the pool.

How long should you run your pump? Piping size, pool size, swimmer load and the actual pump size all play a role in determining how long you should run your pump. For the proper time consult your pool professional. They can determine, based upon your specific pool, the proper amount of time required to keep your pool clear and clean. A good rule of thumb is to run your pump about 1 hour for every 10º of temperature.

If your pump is not running, the water from your pool is not being properly circulated or filtered. Running the pump and circulating the water is the best way to help prevent problems.


Filtration is vital in swimming pool maintenance. The role of filtration is to get rid of all the undissolved dirt and debris from the pool. There are various types of filters available for swimming pools. They include:
• sand and gravel
• anthracite
• diatomaceous earth
The cartridge types are the filter mediums that are commonly used. A swimming pool filtration system uses the basic element of passing water through small sieves, therefore filtering it. Particles that cannot pass through the sieve are trapped and thus get separated from the swimming pool. This process is repeated until all the sieves are blocked. When this happens, the filter should be cleaned so that the cycle is repeated.

Last Words

Keeping your pool sparkling clean doesn’t have to be as cumbersome as you might think. All pools are different, and so are their maintenance needs. However, they all share one commonality: The secret to pristine pool health is regular, routine care. If you choose to handle common problems like murky water or broken pumps on your own, make sure to always consult manufacturers’ manuals before fixing or using equipment. No matter if you rely on a service company to take care of your pool, you still need to do a few things on your own to ensure your pool stays in good condition for years.
