What is a Pool Brush?
A pool brush is a cleaning equipment used for pool cleaning. Pool brushes, which can be used on both the floor and walls of swimming pools, are a practical pool cleaning product. Pool brushes are available in various versions that serve different purposes and have features for these purposes. Similarly, brush handles can be preferred in different sizes according to the place of use. Pool brushes are very useful, especially in garden pools, as they are both low-cost and easily available cleaning equipment. Pool bottom brush model is used to clean algae and other dirty substances that form in pools over time.
Pools are used very frequently, especially in spring and summer. For this reason, it is quickly contaminated due to external factors such as leaves, insects and internal factors such as pool chemicals and human factors. There are ways to clean contaminated pools without draining the pool completely, as well as deep cleaning applications by completely draining the pool water. This situation varies according to how dirty the pool is and its dimensions. One of the tools used during the time when the pool water is completely drained and cleaned is the pool cleaning brush. Pool brushes easily clean every point of the pool walls and pool floor with its dense bristle surface.
The benefits of the pool brush are as follows:
It is possible to prevent algae, especially on the floors and corner areas of pools, with a pool brush. Corner brushes, algae brushes and curved brushes are the types of pool brushes used in algae cleaning. Thanks to the shaped brush types that can touch every area in the pool, the pool is completely purified without any algae residue.
In the cleaning periods of the pools, complete cleaning is carried out every 2 or 3 weeks, that is, the pool water is completely drained and cleaned, while top cleaning and maintenance operations are carried out every 2 or 3 days. Therefore, the stains on the outer edges, walls and floors of the pools are not cleaned sufficiently. In cleaning with a pool brush, an intensive cleaning can be done by rubbing and reaching all corners and edges of the pool. In this way, existing stains are cleaned and the duration of the next stain formation is delayed.
There are many equipment used in pool cleaning. Pool cleaning equipment should be selected so as not to damage the flooring and tiles of the pools. Tools that clean with hard blows that will damage by applying too much force should not be preferred. Pool brushes are designed not to damage the sensitive tiles of all pools. In this way, coating abrasions in the pool are prevented.
Pool brush types are as follows:
NYLON CLAY BRUSH
Nylon bristle brushes, which are suitable for all pool types for cleaning pool steps, walls, floors and tiles, are resistant to substances, deposits and debris in pools. Nylon bristle brushes, which usually have a diameter of 28-30 cm, offer soft cleaning without damaging the pool coverings.
STEEL ARMORED BRUSH
Like nylon bristle brushes, steel armored brushes are suitable for almost all pool types for cleaning pool steps, walls, floors and durable tile surfaces. The rectangular, uniform steel armored pool cleaning brushes are not recommended for use on sensitive tile surfaces such as glass mosaic tiles. Steel armored brushes are especially used for general cleaning of pools that are closed for long periods of time such as winter months. Steel armored cleaning brushes perform pool cleaning with harder scrubs than nylon bristle brushes.
In pool cleaning, first of all, the pool brush is placed on its telescopic pole. The necessary cleaning and disinfectant materials are added to the empty pool and the scrubbing and cleaning process is applied with the help of the brush. If the pool to be cleaned is an unpainted concrete coating, steel armored brush or nylon bristle brush can be used, if the pool to be cleaned is shotcrete coating, it is recommended to use steel armored brush, if the pool to be cleaned is painted concrete, fiberglass or vinyl coating, it is recommended to use nylon bristle brush.
The pool brush to be preferred according to the shape of the pool should be used in the form of an angular brush in rectangular or square pools, and in a standard mold (rectangular) in circle pools. First of all, the pool walls, then the pool floor and finally the stairs, if any, should be purified after cleaning with the help of a pool brush. This prevents the formation of algae, moss and bacteria in pools.
The pool brush can be used with anti-algae liquid cleaning material, cleaning acid, pool treatment material. Mostly liquid chlorine is also among the cleaning agents used with the pool brush. However, chlorine in capsule form is more preferred after filling the pool water. Since liquid products are generally easier to spread and brush, powder products are less preferred if a pool brush is used for cleaning.
Pools should be cleaned frequently, especially in summer and spring. Depending on the size of the pool, it should be purified with a pool brush at least once a week following the cleaning periods. The use of pool brushes during each cleaning makes the pool water look cleaner and clearer.
The pool brush is very important in terms of both cost, deep cleaning and savings in pool maintenance and cleaning applications. Pool brushes used manually eliminate the cost of electricity. Pool brushes, which provide deep cleaning with bristles that can enter every area, completely destroy bacteria and algae on the bottom of the pool. It offers savings as it does not have factors such as electricity bills and repair costs. Compared to nylon bristle brushes, the use of steel armored brushes is more recommended if the pool structure is suitable. Steel armored brushes are longer lasting and do not require maintenance and repair.
