Do I really need to brush my pool?

Yes, it is important to regularly brush your pool to keep it clean and free of debris. Brushing your pool helps to remove dirt, algae, and other contaminants that may accumulate on the walls and floor of the pool. This is important for maintaining the appearance of the pool and keeping the water clean and clear.

Brushing also helps to prevent the buildup of algae and other microorganisms that can cause discoloration and cloudy water and can also lead to problems with the pool’s filtration system.

It’s recommended to brush the pool’s walls, floor and steps at least once a week, or more frequently if the pool is heavily used or if there are a lot of leaves or other debris in the pool. It’s also important to use the correct type of brush for the surface of the pool (plaster, tile, vinyl, etc) and to use a brush with stiff bristles to remove tough stains and algae.

It’s also important to note that brushing alone is not enough, regular vacuuming and skimming are also needed to maintain a clean pool.
