Frisco Pool Maintenance Service
How do I clean the water in a small pool? I have an inflatable 8 foot pool for my kids. I use chlorine tabs at night to keep tbe water sanitized but it looks dirty. Is there a way to get small debris and dirt out without dumping the water?
You can use a wet/dry vac with an accessory pump to pump the water right back out into the pool from the reservoir. Make sure you use a correct ‘wet’ filter.
You have to keep stopping to pump out the collected water, and perhaps rinsing out the filter multiple times depending on the amount of gunk in there, but it gets the job done.
Be AWARE! A wet vac is very powerful! Be extremely careful how you position the wand end or you're going to suck in your pool liner, and even if you stop immediately it's likely there'll be damage if not outright tears in it.
Using a brush attachment will both allow you to loosen up the gunk on the bottom, to more easily be sucked up, and stop the wand end from coming in direct contact with the liner. But people push too hard on the brush heads all the time, which brings the liner too close, and we're back to damaging/tearing again. Careful and slow wins.
