Swimming Pool Surface Cleaning

Surface skimming is probably the most common activity performed when cleaning a swimming pool. On any given day it is common to find dirt, leaves, and other debris floating on the top of the water. Removing floating debris is typically done using a telepole and leaf rake, and is usually much easier than cleaning debris that has sunk to the bottom of the pool.

As your net fills with debris, it’s a good idea to have a garbage can nearby so that you can easily dump that debris into a plastic garbage bag. Dumping debris in your yard or garden is generally not a good idea because wind can blow it right back in the pool.

There is no particular right way or wrong way to skim debris from the top of your pool, just be sure that you do not scratch the tile when doing so. Most leaf rakes come with a rubber padding to prevent this type of damage.
