How often should I clean my pool?

At least once or twice a week. You see, there’s a lot to maintaining a pool than just balancing the pH levels. A weekly cleaning service will reduce staining, eliminate debris, and protect the pool from bacteria or algae growth.

What is the saltwater system? How important is it to service such pools?

A saltwater system is precisely a home chlorine generator. So it all starts by adding salt to the pool water, and the salty water is passed through a high-voltage cell processor. The result is natural chlorine creation in the pool. However, a saltwater pool needs to be maintained frequently as well. But why? Even though the saltwater system generates chlorine, it’s essential to brush and vacuum the pool to prevent algae growth.

Why is my pool turning green?

It’s a sign that algae growth is rapidly increasing in your pool. When the algae grow quickly, it causes an imbalance of chlorine in the water. Once the chlorine level drops, the result is an algae outbreak.

How long should I wait to swim after a pool chemical service?

It’s recommended to avoid swimming until all the chemicals disperse throughout the pool. Ideally, you should wait at least 8-12 hours if you have a residential pool.

Should I drain my pool every year?

It’s best to drain the pool every three to five years to prevent debris or any water buildup. Draining and refilling not only help extend the pool’s life but also keep the water clean and clear. Oh, and you shouldn’t keep your pool without water for a long time as it may cause crack damage to the pool’s structure.

What does “Shocking a Pool” mean?

Shocking the pool refers to adding enough chlorine to the pool that raises sanitizer levels to around eight ppm. It’s also otherwise known as breakpoint chlorination. This sanitization is essential to kill harmful microbes, oxidize organic matter, and prevent the growth of plant algae in the pool.

Do I need pool service even if my pool looks clean?

Yes, it’s crucial. The pool may appear all clean and clear at the surface level, but you don’t know what’s happening beneath the surface. You see, chlorine levels may reduce quickly during warmer months, and you wouldn’t be able to detect it. This is why regular maintenance, pool testing, brushing, and vacuuming are necessary to keep the pool in tip-top condition at all times.

What happens in pool remodeling?

If you feel your pool’s surface has cracked and the plasters seem outdated and discolored, it’s time for a pool remodel. Here are some of the activities you can expect during a pool remodeling:

  • Tile redesign
  • Installation of pumps, filters, and heaters
  • Decking upgrades
  • New lightning and pool coping
  • Pool resurfacing

Ideally, it takes 7-10 days to complete a full-fledged pool renovation.

What’s included in the maintenance of pool equipment?

Your pool has multiple moving parts, including filters, hoses, vacuums, and chemicals, which requires due care and maintenance. Proper pool maintenance includes:

  • Balancing water chemistry
  • Checking the pool filters
  • Vacuuming the pool
  • Pool chlorination
  • Identifying water levels
  • Cleaning skimmers and pump baskets
