Weekly Care: The most important factor is monitoring the pH once a week to ensure the pH level is between 7.0 to 7.6 as well as running the filter pump 3 to 6 hours daily. Doing so will help in preventing algae and other organisms from growing in the pool. Acids and Alkalines are readily available at your local pool supply store or online to maintain proper pool pH balance.
Products are available which can organically decompose body and tanning oil build-up. Common soap and cleansing products may also be used to remove any scum-like build up. Please keep in mind that many cleaners require a chemical reaction to clean, so allow the product to set into the affected area for a few minutes for best results.
Products like Clearicin, Soft Scrub with Bleach, or Soft Scrub Regular are recommended along with a Scotch-Brite pad or sponge. Brushes can also be used.
Your pool bottom will need to be vacuumed on a regular schedule to remove debris and particulate matter that has settled to the bottom. Vacuum heads, rollers and brushes should be inspected to make sure there are no sharp edges that can slice the pool bottom. Vacuums, such as AquaKing or Aquamax are recommended.
Take caution when installing or removing any pool equipment such as ladders, as carelessness could result in damage to your PVC membrane.
Immediately rinse with clear water if any powdered/granular chlorine or strong acids spill on the membrane surface. This will prevent any bleaching or discoloration.
Beware of sulfur or copper based disinfectants, as they may cause discoloration.
