WEEKY OR BI-WEEKLY SERVICE
Different pool maintenance companies offer different services. When shopping around you are likely to run into companies, like ours, that offer both weekly full cleanings and bi-weekly cleanings. Bi-weekly pool maintenance isn’t for every homeowner or every swimming pool and it’s important that our customers fully understand the difference between these two types of services.
Checking pool and spa chemical levels is an important practice that pool owners and operators often overlook. Swimming pool chemical testing is critical because it validates water quality and determines the necessary dosages for correcting water chemistry issues.
If your water chemistry is out of balance, you can end up with corrosive or scale-forming conditions that can be very costly to correct if left unchecked for too long. In addition, accurate chemical testing is critical for the calibration of automatic pool chemical control systems.
Why Filter Cleanings Are Important?
By using the circulation produced by a pool’s pump, filters catch dirt, debris, and other particles in water. A working filter means having a pool with clear water that’s enjoyable to swim in. Your pool’s filter system can also affect other important components. For example, many automatic pool cleaners rely on clean filtered water to work properly. When a filter is dirty or incorrectly cleaned, the pressure of your pool’s system will be impacted, causing decreased performance with many parts connected to your plumbing. This can also lead to premature failure of other components and result in costly repairs.
Just like you wouldn’t want to visit the ER for something that can wait to see your regular doctor, you don’t want to call for emergency pool cleaning if you don’t actually have an emergency. Here are a few instances that most pool cleaning companies would qualify as an emergency:
Broken pump/filters- When the inner workings of your pool are in need of repair or have stopped working altogether, your water can get cloudy or murky very fast.
Pool has turned green– While it isn’t always easy to tell that there may be a problem with your pool, no one misses the issue of their pool water turning green! When your pool turns green, there could be an issue with the filters, the pump or the chemical composition. Either way, expert help will be necessary to restore your pool to beautiful blue.
Storm damage– After a large storm, debris that usually isn’t harmful like leaves, twigs, and dust can do a number on your pool, clogging drains, filters, and throwing off the chemistry of your pool. Cleaning out the gunk and balancing your pool chemicals will need to be done ASAP to prevent further damages.
