A Quick Guide To Pool Service

Now that you’ve splashed a large amount of cash acquiring a pool, it is necessary to do regular pool service and maintenance. Pool service is not an appealing task but it is a task that needs to be done to ensure a clean and safe pool. You will need to do everything possible to ensure that the leaves and debris are removed from the pool. While doing so, it is also of paramount importance for you to maintain the chlorine levels of the pool. Let us give you some tips to help you with pool service.

Pool Sanitization

It is imperative for you to keep your pool clean from bacteria. One of the easiest and most common ways of doing so is by using chlorine. You can use other methods to keep your pool well sanitized and some of them are by using bromine, ozone gas, or through UV sterilization and ionization. If you intend to use chlorine, you can use it either by adding it to the pool manually or by installing a salt chlorinator. Having a liquid chemical feeder integrated into your pool ensures that your pool receives chlorine automatically. High-end chemical feeders automatically check the pH levels and chlorine regularly and inject chlorine and acid accordingly.

Hiring professional help

You can always hire pool service professionals if you don’t have time to remove the gunk and leaves from the pool. The pool service business is filled with professionals who will also provide you with updates on the operating system of the pool and see to it that the pool is functioning properly. Hiring pool services on a regular basis will be cheaper in the long run than hiring for one specific task.

Purchasing mechanical pool cleaners

If you are tech savvy and don´t like the presence of professional pool cleaners in your premises, you can always splurge on a mechanical pool cleaner. These tools work automatically and need not require supervision. If you have plenty of cash to burn, you can invest in a pressure cleaner or a robot cleaner. 

What else should you be on the lookout for?

Not only is it important for you to monitor you chlorine levels, you should also check your pool´s pH levels frequently. If you don´t monitor the pH levels of your pool, using the pool can result in sore, red eyes and itchy skin. It is ideal for the pH level of a pool to be maintained at 7.4. If you intend to raise the pH levels, you can do by adding approved chemicals to the pool.  Need to have your water tested? Stop by our showrooms today with a water sample!
