The benefits of having a pool on your commercial property can be great, however, if you want to continue using your pool for all of these great benefits, then you will need to make sure that it is cleaned properly for it to be used. On the surface, cleaning and maintaining your swimming pool might seem pretty straightforward. We’ve all seen people skimming the top of their pool using a pool net, maybe adding in some chemicals and there you have it. This seems pretty simple, so many new pool owners are tempted to save some money and just do it themselves. However, this DIY approach can prove to be insufficient. Here are some reasons why it’s important to choose a professional pool cleaning service to maintain your pool.
Experts Give You Options
One great thing about going with professional cleaners is that they already know what to look for. When they come to your property, they already will have a good idea of where to begin and finish. Plus, how much they do will be up to you. You get to tell them which areas of your pool you want them to maintain and how often they should do it. Once a week, or once a month, the decision will be up to you. You will just be left with peace of mind that your pool is well-maintained and looking great all year long.
Staying on Top of Cleaning and Maintenance Equipment
Keeping on top of swimming pool maintenance is the key to having a clean pool, which is ready for use every day. Your professional pool cleaning company should be able to give you a list of tasks that they complete so that your pool stays in tip-top shape throughout the season. All pools are different, so the list could vary a bit. But regular tasks include:
- Running your pool filter for over 12 hours, the longer the better;
- Testing and adjusting the sanitizer levels;
- Visually inspecting the pool water for clarity, colour and visible contaminants;
- Testing and adjusting pH levels;
- Testing your water temperatures;
- Emptying the skimmer and pump basket;
- Removing leaves and debris;
- And much more.
Water Purity and Chemical Balance
One of the most critical steps of swimming pool maintenance is water balance. Knowing water balance can also be one of the most confusing processes of pool maintenance. Because of how complex it is, it is important to get help from experienced professionals to help keep your pool water safe, comfortable and free from corrosion. Companies that have qualified staff will be able to take care of your pH levels, check on calcium hardness and check on its stabilizer status all season.
Pump, Filter and Filtration Equipment
Your pool pump and filter are the heart of your pool and will need regular checking and setting. It is not a good idea to take care of this yourself, since equipment replacement costs could run pretty high and you run the risk of causing permanent damage to your pool.
