Regular cleaning and pool maintenance are essential to keep your swimming pool in its best condition. There are a few steps you can take to ensure this. Luckily for you, there are also pool cleaning professionals who can take care of this for you. Here are some key benefits you’ll get from pool maintenance:
- A clean swimming pool is beautiful and safe. You wouldn’t want your guests swimming in dirty water. When the water is clear, it looks more inviting. When it’s off-season, you can also cover your swimming pool so leaves and dead bugs won’t be floating on the surface of the water.
- Unlike leaves, bugs, and other floating debris, harmful bacteria are not visible to the naked eye but can still do a lot of harm to you when you’re swimming. You could get skin or eye infections if the water isn’t sanitary. With proper pool maintenance, you can be sure that your pool is safe to swim in.
- When your pool is clean, your pool equipment is clean too. Regular maintenance of pool equipment will extend the equipment’s life and save you money.
- Aside from the water and your pool equipment, also pay attention to the surface of your swimming pool. Calcium deposits, cracked tiles, peeling paint, or liner will be an eyesore. They may even compromise your swimming pool in the long run.
You wanted a swimming pool so you can be fit, have fun, relax, and entertain friends. Without proper maintenance, your pool could be a source of stress instead.
Using a long-handled skimmer with a basket on one end, you can skim the surface of your swimming pool daily or at least before going for a swim. Skimming removes the floating debris on the surface of your swimming pool. It will prevent drain clogging.
Brush the pool walls, ladders, and other surfaces once a week. You will be able to prevent dirt buildup. Vacuuming will be easier if you brush the dirt close to the drains.
Use a manual vacuum or automatic vacuum to collect debris. Most dirt and debris will settle on the floor after skimming or brushing. Vacuum at least once a week to prevent dirt or debris from clogging your pool drains.
Check Water Circulation
Your pool’s circulation system consists of the skimmer, pump, drain, strainer, and filters. If they are all working perfectly, you can be sure that the chemicals are working and that your pool filtration system is effective. Make sure that none of these parts get too dirty or clogged by debris.
You will need to inspect, clean, and replace your filters as needed. Check your pool filters weekly to make sure they are working efficiently. Check the gauge to determine if the filters need backwashing. If the reading on the gauge meter is eight to ten psi higher than the initial reading, then it is time to backwash the filters.
Avoid the spread of infection by making sure your pool’s chemicals are balanced. Chemicals added to the water are supposed to prevent algae bloom, calcium deposits, and kill bacteria. When the chemicals are not balanced, you could be at risk of disease or infection.
Pool Shock Treatment
Pool shock refers to the method of using “super chlorine” to treat swimming pool water. If you ever stood around your pool and thought that the smell of chlorine was too strong, that’s chlorine reacting to contaminants in the pool like algae, cosmetics, oils, and body waste.
Super chlorinating not only removes the smells but also kills harmful bacteria. You can trust our expert pool technicians to clean your pool and keep the water clean and safe to swim in. A clean pool is a healthy swimming pool.
