Keeping Your Intex Ultra Frame Pool Clean
One of the most popular pools in America (and maybe in the world) is the Intex Ultra Frame pool. These type of pools come in different sizes and shapes but they all have a similar features. They are all above ground pools people install for family fun.
Because these Intex pools are located mostly in back and front yards they are exposed to lots of dirt and debris. There are leaves falling to the water, bugs and insects drowned inside, if the water are not cleaned regularly, bacteria and algae may develop and grow quite quickly.
There are two types of cleaning. One is regularly cleaning the pool from dirt and insects. The other is cleaning the pool for winter storing. The main difference is that the daily cleaning is done while the pool is full of water, while the end of season cleaning is done once the pool is emptied.
Maintenance and Cleaning For Ultra Frame Pool
Owners of in ground pools usually reach a point where they keep a robotic cleaning vacuum near the pool. It rests on the poolside all day and at evening it is submerged and begins to skim the sides and bottom of the pool automatically. But people with Intex pools do not need such a costly gadget.
They need daily accessories to keep the pool clean so it would be fun to jump inside it during the weekends or even daily (usually kids).
Chemically Balanced Pool Water
The first thing you may want to take care of is to have your pool chemically balanced. You need to make sure the water have chlorine and pH levels checked and managed. The pump or filter do not clean the bacteria or algae.
The system also does an electrolytically process, where water molecules are split into highly powerful oxidants which destroy organic contaminants such as bacteria.
The Krystal Clear Saltwater System (open in new window) is recommended for above ground pools.
This option is better than going to your local pool accessories store and buying chlorine and other chemicals to be added separately to the pool. These kind of chemicals somehow end up in skin irritations and other harsh side effects.
Electric Vacuum Cleaner for Intex Pools
As mentioned above, a sophisticated robotic cleaner is not a real option for Intex pools. The real solution is a hand held cordless vacuum cleaner for pools. The vacuum cleaner sucks in the water and the dirt, filters the dirt and debris and lets out the clean water. The dirt is kept inside a reusable bag which can be emptied later on.
The vacuum works underwater thanks to a waterproof power cells which are also rechargeable. Se before your kids want to jump into the water, you can take the hand held vacuum and clean the new leaves and insects which had been added during the night.
You do not have to go inside the water in order to clean the pool, there is an extension pole which will help you vacuum the middle of the pool even when standing outside.
