Initial Vacuum

The first vacuum of the season should not be treated as a normal maintenance vacuum.  Newtown Pools will either discharge the algae and debris settled on the bottom of the pool into a nearby drain or into your yard or woods, or bring its own filtration equipment and vacuum your pool, as to not cause damage to your pool filter or pool plumbing and equipment.  After the vacuum, depending on the pools condition, we will brush the entire pool surface once again.  Sometimes live algae needs to be chemically treated before it can be removed from your pool bottom safely

Initial vacuums may not get your pool cean the first visit.  Depending on water clarity and condition, a second visit may be required.
