Signs Your Pool Needs a Drain and Cleaning

Many home pools end up with a build-up of gunk that can be difficult to remove. This build-up is usually caused by the pool equipment not having enough openings for the water to flow properly, which creates stagnant water. This can lead to algae and bacteria growth, along with an unpleasant smell.

The first step in getting your pool clean is understanding where this gunk is coming from.  If you find that your pool is having frequent problems with maintenance, look at the above signs. If any of these are present, it would be worth investing in a swimming pool cleaner to get rid of this junk and keep them running on schedule.
