When you own a pool, you have a lot to consider. Keeping it clean, making sure the chemicals are balanced and making sure that all the pool parts are working properly can become a full-time job. You have enough to worry about with everything else going on that taking care of your pool can eat up much of your free time. That’s why many people use a pool service company to take care of their pool so that they can use their free time to do other things.
If you’re not sure what a pool service can do you for you, let’s take a look.
Weekly Pool Service & Cleaning
Many people hire a pool service company to take care of routine cleaning. When you invest in weekly pool cleaning you’re investing in the peace of mind of knowing that your pool is not only being cleaned but that it is being inspected regularly. There are many benefits of having weekly pool service and cleaning which include:
- Keeping pool chemicals balanced
When you have a company come in to clean your pool, they will also test the water to make sure that your chemicals are balanced. When you try to do this yourself you typically end up with a green pool that’s hard to clean.
- Regular inspection
During your weekly pool service, your technicians will look to see if there are any cracks or other issues that need attention. If so, they can address them sooner rather than wait until they get worse and end up costing you more money.
Sometimes no matter how well you take care of your pool you can’t avoid repairs. After time and due to wear and tear, you may realize that your pool needs repair. Some of the issues that a pool service company can address include:
As soon as you notice the water level in your pool decrease you should call for service. This will prevent it from becoming a larger and more expensive problem.
- Pump problems
Pump problems can lead to bigger problems with your filtration system as well as the cleanliness of your water. If the pool pump starts pulling air into the system, the pump will lose power to move water. When the pump is working, but not moving water, the water isn’t getting filtered the way it should. This can cause the pump to overheat and burn.
- Pool filter issues
Changing the filter should fix any problems like dirty pool water that is not getting cleaned. But, if you change the filter and notice that the water is still dirty you may have larger problems. It may just need some routine maintenance or it can be a sign of a larger problem.
- Pool heater problems
A pool service company can also fix any pool heater problems that may pop up. If you call a professional, you may be able to get refurbished parts or a completely refurbished system, depending on what needs to be fixed.
- Cracking or chipping of the pool deck
When your pool deck begins to chip or crack you also want to get it fixed as soon as possible. Cracks and chips not only pose a danger as people walk on them, but they can also be an indication of a more serious problem. Cracks may signal that the ground is shifting or that there is even a sinkhole. The cost for this type of repair can vary depending on how severe the problem is.
Once you’ve had your pool for a while you may want to change the way it looks or add a feature. A pool service company can help you remodel your pool to give it a fresh new look. Pool remodeling can include:
- Installing more efficient pumps, heaters, and filters
- New decking
- New tiles
Once you decide what type of pool remodeling you want to have done your pool service company will explain the process to you. These steps typically include:
- Draining the pool. Before you can do any type of remodeling, you need to get the water out of your pool. This can take up to 12 hours depending on the size of your pool. To get this done, a submersible pump is placed inside of your pool with a hose leading out to the street to drain the water.
- Prepping the pool. This involves chipping the old surface and priming it to prepare it for the new look.
- Surface and pebble application. This step will help to get the pool’s surface ready for water after the remodeling project is done. An acid wash is the last part of the process before adding water.
- Adding water & chemicals. Once all of the aesthetics are done it’s time to add the water and chemicals so that you can enjoy your new pool. This step can take anywhere from 12 to 48 hours to complete.
Pool remodeling can get costly so it’s important to choose a pool service company that will work within your budget and explain everything to you. They may even offer you different options for your pool that you never thought of.
