7 SIMPLE STEPS TO A DUST-FREE SWIMMING POOL


Swimming Pool Maintenance Cyprus – Pool maintenance and outdoor pool cleaning are always done with the same aim – to achieve a swimming pool that is crystal clear and clean. Unfortunately, due to the geographical location of Cyprus, our pools are exposed to the effects of dust storms and often leave us with a cloudy swimming pool. The dust storms that hit Cyprus come directly from the Sahara, the Arabian Peninsula, and Syria. Very fine particles are lifted and transported into our pools, leaving us with a residue of aerodynamic particles with a diameter of fewer than 10 micrometres (PM10). When we are faced with excess dust in the pool and when the traditional pool cleaning methods of using the filter, pump, backwashing, sweeping the walls, and vacuuming no longer work – what can we do?


Ask the Swimming Pool Experts

We spoke to Florida Pools and Spas, a team of swimming pool maintenance experts who have been established in Paphos for many years, to find out the best advice on how to remove dust from the swimming pool. These sand particles cannot easily be removed. If you have tried everything, the best way to tackle this problem is to use flocculants in the swimming pool – it is the only way that you are going to be able to get these microscopic particles out. Due to the size of these particles being so small, they can stay suspended at the top of the water, which means they will not sink to the bottom where they can be vacuumed up.

The idea is that the flocculants act as a binding agent and will make all the particles clump together. Once they have been forced to bind together, they can either be vacuumed or will go through the filter system of your swimming pool.

Florida Pools & Spas has seen this problem many times in Cyprus swimming pools and using their expert pool maintenance knowledge, advise you to take the following steps. If you follow these instructions, make sure you choose a professional quality flocculant which can be found in both of the Florida Pools shops in Paphos.

HOW TO GET RID OF DUST FROM YOUR SWIMMING POOL IN CYPRUS:

  • START BY RAISING THE WATER LEVEL IN YOUR SWIMMING POOL.

Before using flocculants, Florida Pools & Spas advises that you raise the water level in your swimming pool. This is essential to make sure that while vacuuming, the water level does not drop to below the filter line level.

  • CHECK THE PH LEVEL & SET TO 7

To make the flocculants work in the pool, always make sure that the PH level is at 7, which will make sure that the treatment works to clump the particles.

  • READ INSTRUCTIONS ON BEST WAY TO DILUTE FLOCCULANTS

It is always recommended to read the instructions on the product before you begin, but in a few words, you usually dilute and distribute the flocculants evenly around the edges of the pool.

  • RUN THE WATER PUMP FOR EVEN DISTRIBUTION

Once you have put the diluted flocculant in the pool, be sure to turn on the pump for several hours so that the solution can be evenly distributed to all areas of the swimming pool.

  • TURN OFF THE PUMP AND LEAVE OVERNIGHT

Now, turn off the pump and leave the pool to stand for one night. In a perfect world, a night without wind so that the swimming pool can remain as still as possible.

  • TURN ON THE PUMP TO SEE RING-SHAPED FORMATIONS

After approximately 9 hours, the dust particles should look like a ring-shaped formation at the bottom of the pool.

  • VACUUM THE POOL & TOP IT BACK UP

When you can see the ring-shaped particles clumped together, this is the time to vacuum them out. After vacuuming, be sure to top up the water level and to backwash the filters.

The result will be a clear and clean swimming pool, free of dust, and ready for enjoying long summer days.
