    Advice on how to keep a basic pool clean

    Last year I bought a Play Day 120x72x22 inflatable pool. I had no clue how to keep the pool and water clean except for dumping the water, scrubbing the pool with bleach, and refilling. I would really like to avoid that this year if I can.

    I made sure to buy a good cover for it.

    The dimensions are listed above. I read it holds a max of 440 gallons of water. There is no filtration system either. Its just a basic pool.

    What would be the best method to keep the water and pool surface clean?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Read Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools

    If you follow that, your pool will be sanitary. Without a filter it will get dirt in it and once that becomes too much, you dump it and start over.

    Take care.

    I had one like that, I did as you did, it sucked.

    Knowing what i do now I would probably use a floater with a triclor puck, and a pool brush and net. Could limit your dumping by half.

    I went with a 12' x 30' pool with a $110 China pump and sand filter, much better and still cheap
