Leave Your Pool Maintenance to the Pros

by / Friday, 15 December 2017 / Published in Blog, Maintenance

Swimming pools are one of the most attractive features when buying a home. They provide you and your family with an entertainment spot on your property and swimming is one of the most intense (and enjoyable) forms of exercise. The downside to owning a pool, however, is the maintenance needs that come along with them.

You need to ensure that your pool is kept clean, pest free so that it does not become a health hazard for your family. When it comes to pool maintenance, you can either contract the services of a professional pool maintenance company or carry out the maintenance duties yourself. Unless you have a lot of experience in pool maintenance, it is recommended that you use the services of a professional, here’s why.

  1. Pool maintenance requires a lot of specialized chemical knowledge

There is more to pool maintenance than meets the eye. The water needs to be kept within a very small window in terms of the chemical composition. Pool chemicals, such as chlorine, are there to minimize the chances of algae and other water-dwelling flora and fauna from using your pool as a habitat. Chances are, you don’t have the expertise to test your pool’s water chemical composition or to regulate it within the accepted levels. Too much, or too little, of these pool chemicals, poses a health hazard for you and your family. Professional maintenance companies have experts whose sole duty is to ensure that your pool’s chemical makeup is ideal for your family.

  1. Pool filtration system maintenance

Every swimming pool needs to have some sort of filtration system in place to keep the water clean at all times. The filtration system is complex and involves a lot of machinery that needs to be monitored, maintained and replaced when it succumbs to the wear and tear of continuous use. Pool maintenance companies know how to identify problems in your filtration system before they become catastrophic. Without an effective pool maintenance system, your pool is guaranteed to turn into a health hazard.

  1. Peace of mind

One of the reasons to contract any type of professional help is the convenience that comes with knowing that you are being assisted by professionals. Pool maintenance companies are staffed with qualified and experienced personnel who are more attuned to the problems that might occur in your swimming pool. No matter the type of pool that you have, they have probably encountered a similar set up before.

  1. They know the local challenges well

Even with extensive DIY pool maintenance credentials, no two areas are the same. Pool maintenance companies know the local area and know what challenges your pool is facing. Maybe the chemical setup of your pool has to be altered due to a certain type of algae that is only found in your location. You can never know this unless you have worked in the local industry for years.

So, while it might seem easy enough to keep your pool in tip-top shape on your own, just don’t gamble with your family’s health. Always use a professional pool maintenance company.
