A good party is a great way to spend time with family and friends. It's also a great way to clean up after the event. Having the pool cleaned after the party is a great way to make sure that everyone has a great time.
Even if you've had a few drinks, swimming pools can get tough after a party. Whether it's a blowout or a casual occasion, there's a good chance that debris and waste accumulated in the past can affect your water's balance.
- Pick up any trash, floats, toys, and accessories in and around your pool. Store all pool items.
- Replace any equipment and pool care objects that you removed before the party.
- Skim, brush, and vacuum your pool surface, walls, steps, and floor.
- Shock and balance your pool water to remove waste and other contaminants.
- Run your circulation and filtration systems until your water is clear.
Pick up in and around your pool
Depending on the size of the party, your backyard might need to be cleaned. Make sure to remove anything that's not appropriately placed in the pool, including toys, floats, and trash.
When it comes to storing pool toys and floats, make sure to store them in a large deck box. This way, they can be easily stored for later use.
Replace any equipment or other items
Before your party, make sure to remove all equipment that are used to maintain the pool, such as the floating chlorine devices. These items should be returned to their proper location once the party is over.
Skim, brush, and vacuum your pool
With all the activity that's happening in and around your pool, there's a lot of debris that can be left behind. Cleaning up after your pool is as simple as scrubbing the surface with a skimmer.
Once the pool has been cleaned, brush the walls and steps to make sure that the debris settles on the pool floor.
Shock and balance water chemistry.
Even though your pool may seem clean after washing, it's still full of waste. This is because the water chemistry in it still remains strong.
When a large group of people consumes alcohol and other substances in the pool, it can leave behind traces of harmful organic contaminants. This can trigger unpleasant algae growth and contribute to the spread of harmful germs in the water.
Use a powerful pool shock to prevent the growth of harmful contaminants in your water. Pool shock levels should be raised to around 10.0 ppm.
After the chlorine level has been lowered to 3.0 ppm, start with the Total Alkalinity. This will help you maintain a balanced water chemistry.
Run your circulation and filtration systems
Running your filtration and circulation systems is the last step to making sure that the water in your pool is clear after a party. Doing so will help keep the system running smoothly.
When running your equipment, make sure to check the pressure, the pump basket, and the skimmer basket to see if they are running smoothly. Also, empty the containers as soon as possible to prevent any debris.
