I'm not sure how I can help you, but somewhere I found a advice how a pool should be cleaned everyday, or at least a few days per week. I'm sure you can find the right answer in some website about pools.

My best friend just had a baby, and she's my age. So I'm a godmom now, which is crazy. grin:

Pool cleaning

Your weekly maintenance tasks should consist of the following:
  • Give your pool a routine shock treatment. (This is different from the major shock treatments provided by professionals, using large amounts of chlorine.) Add a bag of shock for every 10,000 gallons.
  • Treat your pool with a maintenance-level dose of algae preventative.
  • Clean your pool tile/pool water line.
  • Brush the pool walls.
  • And of course, vacuum the pool.
  • Additional Tasks:
  • In addition to daily, weekly, and bi-weekly tasks, monthly, you should gather water samples to take to a water testing service for professional testing and pool chemical analysis.

Every two months, you should close your pool for 2-3 days and perform these tasks:

Use filter cleaner and degreaser to clean your filters and remove built up grease and oil.
Dose your pool with a flock or metal remover. Allow this to work for 2-3 days, then vacuum the pool.
Note that you cannot perform these tasks on rainy, windy days. You must perform them on still days that would probably be good for swimming!

If you donít keep your pool clean, you will have a problem with algae, so itís very important to keep your filters clean and stay on top of your maintenance, for the best looking and safest pool. In addition to following these guidelines, you should also simply keep an eye on your pool and clean whatever needs cleaning as soon as you notice it.

Some of this really depends on the type of pool you have. Tile, liner, fiberglass? Also is going to depend on the type of chlorine system you have, is it a salt generator or standard chlorine disk added to the skimmer? Do you have a robot cleaner? Really need some more info to give you the right advice.
