What does brushing the pool walls do?2023-01-16T14:15:24+11:00

Regular brushing of the pool walls prevents algae buildup by hindering algae spores from getting a grapple on your pool walls. By regularly brushing, you do not give the algae enough time to get a strong grip on your pool wall. Regular brushing also helps loosen dirt/debris for you to clean from the pool surface with a manual vacuum or automatic pool cleaner.
