Hi Hammy

I recommend you do as many of the following as possible:
  1. approach the local pool board and get all the relevant literature on standards and recommendations.
  2. collect pool brochures and literature from local suppliers to become familiar with the products in your area.
  3. get a pool reference book/ manual for the theory.
  4. befriend a pool service person/ company and spend time with them as they go about their maintenance tasks. Offer to lend a hand at no charge - you get the experience and they get a helping hand for free.
  5. use the internet as an information resource. Visit good pool forums like this one, post your questions and participate in discussions of your current issues, or of aspects of pool maintenance that you feel you need to develop.

Hope this helps

having a pool is great but it takes responsibility to properly maintain it. how to maintain then? generally, this job belongs to gardeners or professional pool cleaning companies.

to maintain the immaculate image of your pool there are things that need to be taken into consideration. refer to this: http://www.swimmingpool.com/maintenance ... are-basics

A little effort can keep your pool clean. But if you fail to maintain your pool, it could be the worst thing ever and could be the home for algae, bacteria, germs etc. I think, the second post here(from pool help) seems worth enough for you. Maintenance depends on the type of your pool. I came across an interesting article on pool maintenance. [ http://www.poolhelpforum.com/blog/cleaning-pool/important-tips-for-maintaining-your-pool/ ] You must check for the chlorine content, pH and all other essential chemical tests. Vacuuming, skimming the debris and brushing the walls in few days could keep your pool clean. Hope this could help you.
