The reason that inground pools are more expensive to keep clean is due mainly to their more complex design. These kinds of pools are often landscaped and feature complex pool shapes. As result an increased amount of debris finds its way into the water from the landscaped features. This in turn is more difficult to remove due to the fact that inground pool shapes often feature tight corners.
Pool cleaning is not something that pool owners enjoy doing, but it is a necessary act if you want to keep your pool sanitary and safe. A dirty pool has usually become ridden with algae and the water has a greenish tint to it. This is a definite sign that you should stay clear of the water.
Since the real enemy is bacteria, people tend to want to combat this problem by “shocking” the water with large amounts of chlorine. Although this is an effective way to kill bacteria, the chlorine is also an irritant to the human eyes and skin.
Look for an in ground pool cleaner which is simple enough to operate that you can turn the job of getting it started over to your kids if necessary; if you need a degree in mechanical engineering to figure out how to use it, your pool will probably get quite dirty between cleanings.
Robotic pool cleaners If you buy one of these pool cleaners you get what you would expect from the description, an intelligent, robotic cleaner. They are the most expensive option, however, if you are really serious about protecting your investment then they are easy the best choice.
