A fresh and clean pool is not only visually appealing, but also contributes to the health and safety of its users. One of the most effective methods of cleaning pools is to use a pressure washer. This article will guide you through the process and give you tips and instructions for keeping your pool and garden furniture in top condition.

What do you need.

To thoroughly clean your pool, you need a number of materials and tools. This includes a proper pressure washer, a pool net for removing coarse debris, safety equipment such as gloves and goggles, and a hydrogen vacuum for removing the water used by the pressure cleaner.

The pressure cleaner is a powerful tool that uses high-pressure water to remove dirt and deposits. It is important to take safety precautions when using a pressure washer. Always wear protective clothing, including gloves and goggles, to avoid injury.

Picture this: You want to clean your pool after winter. Before you begin cleaning, be sure to turn off the pool pump and remove coarse debris such as leaves and insects from the pool with a pool net. In addition, it is important to check and clean the pressure washer to ensure that it functions properly.

Start by cleaning the pool floor.

Move the pressure cleaner across the bottom in a steady, even motion to remove all dirt. To clean efficiently, divide the pool into sections and work through section by section.

Then you proceed to clean the pool walls. Start from the bottom and work your way up to prevent dirt from falling back onto already cleaned areas. Pay extra attention to corners and edges, where dirt often accumulates.

Hard-to-reach areas, such as corners and stairs, can be challenging. For these areas, use the tip of the pressure cleaner and aim the water jet directly at the dirt. Be patient and thorough when cleaning these areas.


After cleaning, it’s time for aftercare. Check the pool for residual debris. Rinse out the pressure washer and store all materials. Then turn the pool pump back on and check the water balance to make sure the water is safe for use. Proper water balance is essential for the health and comfort of swimmers and for the durability of the pool itself.

Maintenance tips

Maintaining your pressure washer is just as important as maintaining your pool. Be sure to clean the pressure washer regularly and check for any damage to extend its life and maintain its efficiency.

As for pool cleaning frequency, it depends on several factors such as pool use and weather conditions. In general, it is advisable to clean the pool at least once a week.

Pollution prevention is better than cure. Cover your pool when not in use to prevent leaves and other debris from falling into the water. Regular maintenance and following these tips will help ensure a clean and safe pool.
