Thread: Brushing

    Brushing

    My pool is crystal clear with the following numbers being typical
    fc = 7-9
    cya= 70
    ta = 100
    ch = 350
    ph = 7.6

    How often should I brush the sides....also is brushing the bottom required or is the vacuum sufficient?

    thanks

    Re: Brushing

    Before I got my robot, I brushed the pool every day. Now I brush it... never.

    Do you have a salt pool?

    The standard is to brush the entire pool once a week, or use a pool cleaner that does the same thing for you. Vacuuming is essentially the same thing, so that counts as long as you are vacuuming/brushing everywhere.

    Does a Polaris or similar sufficiently go everywhere to count as brushing?

    Yes, a Polaris counts.
