Do you have a pool? If so, you know the summer months are spent trying to keep it in tip top condition. You need to keep it clean, make sure the chemical makeup is optimum all the time and troubleshoot problems that are likely to come up from time to time. It is a time consuming job for sure, so this is why it’s recommended that you get professional weekly pool maintenance.
Yes, you can do it alone, but why would you when you can have experts come in each week and do it for you? Like with everything else, if you don’t maintain your pool it won’t last as long as you would like it to when we’re talking year to year, but if you get busy and don’t give it the time it needs week to week the water can go green and be unsafe to swim in.
One of the big things in pool maintenance is keeping the water level maintained. If you had a big party where a cannonball contest was in full swing or half of the street was in your pool you likely lost quite a bit of water. Conversely, if you had a lot of rain and storms over the weekend you will have too much water. The pool equipment works best if the water level is maintained at all times. Your weekly maintenance people will do that.
They’re also there to skim the leaves and debris that may have fallen into the pool throughout the week, to brush the sides of the pool and to vacuum all the dirt up from the bottom. This keeps the pool looking its best and also clean and comfortable for swimmers.
Weekly maintenance workers will also clean the skimmers, keeping everything operating at its optimum efficiency, check water circulation, check for leaks in drains, filters and strainers, and check the filters for wear. They also maintain the proper chemical balance and shock the pool when needed. They will also test the water each week and alert you to what you need to do to improve the conditions until their next visit.
We all want clean water and an inviting pool. By getting the experts in for a weekly check and the necessary maintenance you are doing yourself and your pool a huge favour. Isn’t it time you invested in a good pool expert for your outdoor oasis?
