WEEKLY POOL MAINTENANCE
Maintaining a pool can be time consuming and seem costly, but if your pool is not properly maintained, the repair costs can be very expensive. It is highly recommended that you perform regular pool maintenance to avoid larger repair issues and to keep costs low. Our pool cleaning service can save you money over time by ensuring that your pool and pool equipment are properly balanced and in good working condition.

Water Chemistry Analysis
No one likes the chore of pool service, but regular care keeps the water clean and balanced, and your equipment functioning properly. The good news is that pool maintenance is easier than ever with our weekly pool cleaning service.
If you are using either a salt based pool producing chlorine or a chlorine based tablet pool, then your pH needs to be correct. If pool water is not balanced correctly then the chlorine sanitizer won’t be working at full strength killing germs and bacteria.
Your water balance needs to be correct or it will affect your skin and eyes. The pH should be neither too acidic nor basic in order to feel comfortable.
An imbalanced pool can be corrosive to the liner, ladders and hand rail and other equipment such as the pump. The damage can extend as far as the heater, completely ruining or severely damaging the unit.
Unbalanced pH levels can cause calcium carbonate to separate from the water and form white, gray or brown patches on your pool tiles. Regular pool maintenance including balancing the water can restore the health of your pool water and prevent future scale buildup.
Cracked Skimmer Lids
Your pool skimmer cover is used as a safety and maintenance feature. It is meant to prevent debris, other items, pets and people from falling into the skimmer well. It also provides a point of access to the skimmer for your swimming pool. Sometimes your skimmer lid will get cracked or broken over time and will require replacement.
Cleaning the skimmer and pump baskets regularly is important to the overall maintenance of your swimming pool. Clogged baskets make your pump have to work harder to try to cycle the water. This can decrease the life and stress the seals in your pump.
It’s no secret that a swimming pool can be a breeding ground for bacteria and algae. Outdoor above ground and in ground pools are exposed to the elements. Dirt, debris, animals and swimmers are all things that lead to contamination. According to the CDC, 58 percent of public pool samples contained fecal contamination (yikes)! It’s more important than ever to properly maintain your swimming pool, not just for clear water, but for better health.
Likely the most important reasons that pool owners need to keep their pools clean is to prevent the spread of disease. Water is one of the most potent mediums for the spread of diseases. It is easy for one infected person to transmit their illness to another when they share the same body of water. Pool owners who skip cleanings run the risk of making their pools a breeding ground for disease.
