purpose of sweeping a pool?

GoofyYnoFebruary 23, 2012

silly question, but as I was doing my pool sweeping this morning I was wondering the real purpose of sweeping a pool. I mean is it just to remove particulate matter (or move it to drain)? If this is the case, on mornings like this one where there is none visible, am i wasting my time. or does it keep the surface cleaner, smoother, more stain free? (I have Pebblefina).

I try to do it 2x/week, but really get one in more than not.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It keeps the walls and floor cleaner. Sometimes stuff like oils, lotions, and even biological stick there.
