A Cement Inground Pool is basically just a large hole dug into the ground with a concrete shell to contain water. A vinyl lining is permanently attached to the concrete shell to give the inside of the pool a smooth feel. The operation of an inground concrete pool is no different than that of an above-ground pool: Both have a filtration system that circulates the water and keeps it clean and free from debris. Cement Inground Pool require routine maintenance, surface cleaning, and chemical additives to stay in good operating condition.
Use a pool skimmer to remove any floating debris
Clean the sides of the Cement Inground Pool by scrubbing them with a plastic-bristle pool brush. Work your way around the entire pool moving the brush in a circular motion.
Wait 10 minutes after scrubbing the sides of the pool for any dirt or small particles to settle on the bottom of the pool. Vacuum the bottom of the pool by slowly moving a pool vacuum across it. Move the pool vacuum very slowly and in straight lines to avoid stirring up any dirt or debris settled on the bottom of the pool. Brushing and vacuuming should be performed weekly to keep the pool clean.
Add the correct amount of algaecide to the pool once a week
Sanitize the water by adding pool chlorine once every two weeks. Pool chlorine is available in solid or liquid form, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for the exact amount to add. Do not add all the chlorine in one spot — it is better to dilute it by slowing pouring it around the outer edge of the pool.
Use a pool test kit once a month to check the water’s pH and alkalinity levels. The chlorine level should remain around 3 parts per million and the pH level should read between 7.2 and 7.6.
Clean out any filtration traps around the pool at least once a week
The pool’s filtration system should be run at least 8 hours a day for proper filtration and circulation.
