Not many people own a home that has its own pool. So, if you have one in your home, it is a privilege and a liability all at once.  Having your own pool takes a lot of time and effort because require regular cleaning and maintenance to prevent health hazards.

RealtyTimes listed some tips for cleaning your own pool in order to maintain its 'excellent pool health.' Here are some of them:

1. Skimming

Skim off the debris from the surface of the pool. This is usually done for debris such as hair, leaves and other things that float on the surface of your pool. A long rod with a net at the end, like that of a kitchen strainer, is usually used for this technique.

2. Opening the pool

If you spot some unwanted algae buildup on the floor and the walls of the pool, perhaps it is that time of the season to open up the pool in order to clean it thoroughly. No one would want to swim in a pool full of algae.

3. Treating the dirty pool

Before calling for pool cleaners, make sure to treat your pool first with chemicals that will kill the bacteria that might be multiplying in it. Just to make sure that after the cleaners are done with it, you are free to swim without worrying about viruses and bacteria.

4. Maintaining the right pH level

A good pH level means that your pool is in great condition. A lot of chemicals in the pool may also be not good. This is why you must always check the water for the right pH level to make sure that no one is harmed during a swim.

Those are some ways that you can do to maintain the good health of your pool. It might be a liability to have one, but it is pleasant scenery to see kids and your family happily making a good dip in the pool.
