Three Reasons Why You Should Avoid DIY Pool Service

Three Reasons Why You Should Avoid DIY Pool Service
September 28, 2016 sdcadmin

Pool service is a time-intensive, laborious task if you aren’t an expert. You have to have the right skills and experience to really do a thorough job. Here are a few reasons why pool servicing is a job best left to the pros.

  • First reason: You likely lack expertise to perform a full range of pool servicing tasks. Pool servicing is more than removing leaves and grime. Professionals check the water’s chemicals and pH level. They also inspect the filter, pump, and other pool equipment to ensure all parts are running smoothly.
  • Second reason: You won’t notice problems as well as an expert. Problems like cracks and leaks are sometimes difficult to notice, but a professional picks up on these issues quickly. They’ll perform leak detection tests to identify any problematic areas. Issues such as leaks or poorly functioning pool components just worsen if they aren’t dealt with early, which leads to the need for costly repairs.
  • Third reason: You have to use special tools. To service a pool, you need a special vacuum, algae brush, and other equipment. While you can buy the equipment, you likely won’t use the tools as well as a professional does. Harmful bacteria can grow with an insufficient cleaning job, which puts the health of your pool at risk.
