Caring for your pool is one of the best ways to maximize your enjoyment of this outdoor feature. Regular maintenance involves several steps, including chemically balancing the water, cleaning the pool, and checking its plumbing and other technical components. Scheduling custom pool maintenance with a trusted professional creates a clean and inviting environment that is always ready to receive swimmers.
Dirt and debris not only affect the appeal of your pool, they can also clog the plumbing and degrade its aesthetic features over time. Your pool’s skimmer is designed to capture and remove debris from the water; your pool maintenance service will empty the basket and remove any remaining debris from the pool’s surface using a long-handled skimmer net. Next, the basin and sides of your pool will be cleaned via vacuum to remove any dirt that may have settled onto these surfaces.
Maintaining the correct chemical balance in your pool’s water is essential for clarity, comfort, and health. To balance the chemicals of your pool, your pool service will first evaluate the condition of the water by testing it, then add chemicals as needed to keep the water clear and free of algae and other microorganisms. The exact process of chemically balancing your water will depend on the type of pool you have—saltwater pools require different treatment than chlorinated pools.
Filter and Pump Care
Finally, your pool’s filter will be backwashed if necessary to clean it; if the filter cartridge requires replacement, your pool service will take care of this as well. The pool’s pump will also be checked and the pump filter cleaned to ensure your pool water circulates properly and efficiently for better cleaning and energy efficiency.
