We asked several of our pool experts what options are available to keep your pool clean. David VanSant of Aqua Pro Pool & Spa, Ric Reineke of The Pool Guyz, and Frank Bowman of Splash Pool, LLC were more than happy to lend their opinions on the question.
David VanSant and Ric Reineke both agree that one of the best ways to keep your pool clean is with an automatic pool cover. “These covers do a great job of sealing your pool off from the elements such as falling leaves, rain, and air-born waste,” says David VanSant. Ric Reineke states that, “If you have the budget for an automatic cover, the savings in heating and peace of mind in safety is well worth the cost to upgrade to this option.” Automatic pool covers are a permanent installation of track systems, either under your coping or on top of your deck, that allow the cover to slide over your pool with a turn of a key.
Frank Bowman tells about a few different ways to keep your pool clean. The first way being the manual way. This way involves time for brushing the walls and vacuuming the pool bottom as needed. The second way is using robotic cleaners. “Robotic cleaners are also convenient—you just plug it in and place it in your pool,” says Frank. The third, and Viking’s favorite, is the X-Treme Klean system. This system is a cleaning and circulation system custom engineered specifically for end pool it is placed in.
