If it were as simple as skimming the surface every few days, it would not be much of an issue. But the typical pool takes a lot more than that. You need to think about chlorine levels, pump maintenance, resurfacing every few years, and any number of other things.
Keeping your pool clean, and the water clear, is a matter of establishing routines. But that can become a hassle, and you don’t always have time for that.
When you hire a professional pool service, you know there is nothing to worry about. Everything will be taken care of right on schedule.
Here are just a few of the things that regular pool care requires:
– surface debris cleanup
– wall and tile cleanup
– pump cleaning and maintenance
– vacuuming the bottom
– filter pressure and backwash maintenance.
There is a lot of work that goes into keeping a pool chemically balanced. And that’s about much more than just algal growth. If you’re not careful, pools can become a breeding ground for bacteria, too. Keeping chlorine levels and Ph balanced is a crucial part of a healthy pool.
Pool pumps and ancillary tools are generally sturdy and durable. But, they do break down and fail. If you take a DIY approach to pump maintenance, be ready for a lot of surprises. Pool pumps can be break, especially if they are a mid-to-low-quality model.
A pool service professional deals with all makes and models of pumps regularly. They’ll be able to tell you exactly when parts will need to be replaced and what repairs are needed to avoid serious damage.
Even if you are an experienced pool owner, it doesn’t hurt to have an extra pair of eyes to look a potential problem.
