Residential swimming pool maintenance

Make your family bonding memorable and fun with a crystal-clear swimming pool!

Residential swimming pool maintenance is easier said than done. Most of the time, DIY is not the best option for your pool. A lot of families opt to have a pool in their backyard. This proves as a highly convenient recreational facility in the household. With an available swimming pool near you, family bonding proves to be ten times happier than a BBQ party does. Of course, the former can be an add on to the latter, which is the case for most households.

With a residential pool, we know you’re thinking about doing the maintenance and cleaning on your own. It is tempting to do so, considering that it is your own and you have the privilege to do anything you want with it. You can clean it how you want, and no one can talk bad about it, right? Well, at some point, you're right, but in the long run, a DIY can turn into the worst possible decision you could ever make.

No to DIY Cleaning and Maintenance

You might be thinking that you can save a lot of money by skipping the professionals and doing maintenance on your own. Well, that’s where you are wrong. Do-it-yourself cleaning is not recommendable, especially in a technology-dependent facility like your swimming pool. A professional residential swimming pool maintenance company does a lot of wonders. Below are some of the things we do to keep everything smooth and pristine:

  1. Circulation

It’s always a bad idea to let water get stagnant. For one, stagnant water is the breeding ground of mosquitos and other insects that can cause diseases. Another reason is the formation of algae, which is hazardous not only to humans but also to the structure of your swimming pool. You can get rid of these dangers by having healthy moving water. And this is where circulation plays its role.

A properly maintained pool has a pump that circulates water through a filtration system and back into the pot. Unfortunately, running your pump 24/7 can skyrocket your electrical bill. With this dilemma, a simple rule for operating your swimming pool has come to light: run it one hour for every 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) of air temperature. So if the average high temperature of a particular period is 90°, run your pump nine hours per day during that period.

  1. Filtration

Some people believe filtration is the heart of a swimming pool. They said it is the most important piece of pool equipment. From a professional’s point of view, every part of your swimming pool cleaning, maintenance, repairing, and refurbishing are all critical. Nothing must be left behind. Since the filter is continually removing dirt and debris, it’s recommended to clean or backwash your unit regularly to allow maximum filtration. This is especially important when your pressure gauge rises 8-10 PSI above the normal clean filter pressure.

Ensure you follow the recommended bi-weekly or weekly filtration for your swimming pool to keep it on optimum performance. Other tools that help with filtration include skimmers and pump baskets. It would help if you cleaned these out weekly — or more frequently, depending on what Mother Nature has to say about it.

  1. Cleaning

Do you think it’s easy to clean a swimming pool? Well, think again. A swimming pool, even in residential areas, needs extra care because it’s not a simple structure. DIY needs you to do ALL the cleaning. We’re talking about brushing, scrubbing, skimming, and vacuuming every inch of it. At least once a week, you should brush your pool’s walls, steps, and floors to remove dirt and debris, and skim the water surface and pool floor to remove leaves and other items. You should also clean out the pump and skimmer baskets and use an automatic pool cleaner — or manually vacuum your pool — every week.

If you don’t have anything better to do, then you may as well spend most of your free time cleaning your swimming pool. It can also improve your tan. But if you don’t want to waste your precious time, then we highly suggest you hire an expert on swimming pool cleaning.

  1. Water Testing

Water testing isn’t difficult if you’re good with chemistry. If not, then leave it to us to take care of your water. Not to brag, but not everyone is good with water testing. You might wonder what’s so tricky about a pool; well, we’ll tell you this: it’s because there are different elements that affect your water's chemicals. There are such things called pH, alkaline, chlorine, calcium hardness, etc. I think you get the idea.

You need extensive reading and take a lot of time studying these chemicals and elements that should not be present in your swimming pool. If you hire a professional, then you’re at an advantage. You don’t need to know many technical terms when you have us as your residential swimming pool maintenance team.

  1. Water Balance and Sanitation

Water balance is next to water testing. Testing is part of our package if you choose us as your go-to maintenance. Once you've got the results from your water test, it's time to apply the appropriate chemicals to balance your pool water. These chemicals include pH, Total Alkalinity, and, if applicable, a Calcium Hardness adjuster. The necessary chemicals you need to maintain a healthy and safe pool are a primary sanitizer to kill germs, including viruses and bacteria; a weekly shock to keep your chlorine working effectively; and a phosphate removal and enzyme product to prevent algae growth and assist your sanitizer.

Here are the ideal chemical levels for your pool:

Ideal pH level: 7.4-7.6

Ideal total alkalinity (TA) level: 80-120 parts per million (ppm)

Ideal calcium hardness (CH) level: 200-400 ppm

Ideal free available chlorine (FAC) level: 2.0-4.0 ppm

Ideal cyanuric acid level: 30-50 ppm

Now that you understand why DIY is a big NO-NO for your swimming pool, it’s time for you to know us and what we can bring to the table.
