Nobody wants to swim in a dirty pool, and most people don’t want to clean it either. It definitely sounds like a better plan to just come home to a crystal clear pool every day. Letting a pool service take over the hassle of maintaining your pool is absolutely something to consider. While you’ll need to perform some sort of daily maintenance yourself, a weekly or even bi-weekly pool service will help tremendously. Take a look at what a good pool service should include.
Debris is your pool’s worst enemy. It can build up just about anywhere, including the water line, the bottom of the pool, the skimmer, and the pump baskets. A good pool service will clean all of this. This means skimming the water line clear of leaves, sticks, and other debris, and removing debris from the bottom of the pool with either a leaf rake or a vacuum. Even when your pool has its own filtration system, vacuuming is important in order to lessen the load on your pool’s equipment.
The best way to keep your pool’s equipment functioning properly is by having it inspected regularly. A good pool service will check the equipment every visit and make sure that it is all in good working order.
A good pool service will test and balance the water chemistry every visit as well. On top of this, they will fill the chlorinator or chlorine packs as needed. Too much chlorine in your pool will be very uncomfortable for you and your guest, so it is important that you maintain proper levels of chlorine in your pool.
You should receive a written report of the work that they completed and the chemicals that they used. The key is to work with your pool company to find a schedule that works for both of you. It mainly depends on how much work you’re willing to put in and how much you’re not. Contact us at Alan Jackson Pools to get started today.
