Cleaning your pool should always be done by professionals. Although you can do it, it's a daunting task that could take up your precious time and energy. Our expert swimming pool maintenance companies are always at your service. Whether it's a residential or commercial area, we got your back in terms of cleaning and maintaining a pristine pool.
A study from the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shared that only 20 percent of public swimming pools are free from health and safety hazards. Even though many swimming pools use many chemicals, it is still not one hundred percent safe, especially if experts do not do the cleaning. Well, there is still 80 percent remaining, but if millions of bacteria do not contaminate them, they probably contain excess chlorine, which also poses detrimental effects to your health.
There are some ways for you to know whether the swimming pool is clean or not. You can read them here to find out:
1. The water is not clear
Start from the most discernible thing. If you’re staring down a pool and you don’t find it difficult seeing the bottom, it is probably clean. It’s a great sign, but it doesn’t give you assurance that it is impeccably germ-free.
2. That slimy feeling
Dip your hands into the water or any pool equipment. If it feels slimy or oily to the touch, then it just simply means the chlorine poured into the pool isn’t actually working—enough reason to believe that it’s brimming with bacteria.
3. Pool filters are not working
The pool filter is basically the heart of the swimming pool’s circulation system. The water dirt is filtered by the pool’s inlet pipe, and its purpose is to catch the tiny dirt and debris floating in the pool. If there’s no strong current of water hitting your body when you stand in front of circulations jets, then the filters are not working, leaving the pool stagnant where germs can freely reel around.
4. There’s a strong pool smell
You’re probably thinking that the strong smell in pools are caused by excessive chlorine. But that smell is from chloramine, a chemical compound that contains chlorine and ammonia and is often used as a “secondary disinfectant” for drinking water. This may be less effective and produces that smell when it reacts to sweat, urine, hair, or skin. In a survey, one out of five people admitted that they pee in public pools. Chloramines can also irritate the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract.
Cleaning your pool alone may lead to the above signs of dirty water. It may not be obvious at first, but you should know that these signs can damage your swimming pool.
Don't Go With A DIY Plan
We know, cleaning a house is easy so how hard cleaning a pool can be? Honestly, it's in the middle of difficult and hard. There are a lot of factors you need to think about like water testing, pumps, filtration system, skimming and brushing off unwanted materials on your swimming pool. Heck, a lot of our clients come to us asking for help when they already damaged their swimming pool. It's no stranger for us to see clients' pool on the worst possible case. Nevertheless, we're always willing to help them out.
DIY are not for everyone. If you're gifted with the hands of a cleaning craftsman, then you can probably clean your swimming pool on your own. For most people, that's a struggle. If you're one of those clients who are either busy or clueless on cleaning, fret not, as our swimming pool maintenance company is here to serve you.
We bet you're one of those people wondering about this. Here are some of the reasons why you should hire us right now.
The chemicals used in pool cleaning are difficult to get just right. It’s not the kind of chemicals that are used, so much as it is the amount. If you use too much of a chemical, the water can cause skin and eye irritation. (Eye irritation can occur just via the vapor without ever even touching the water.)
There are quite a few tools necessary to keep a pool clean, but if you hire a pool service, you don’t have to buy them all. Even better, you don’t have to find a place to store them or replace them when they break.
Let’s talk about the psychological benefits of hiring someone to handle your pool cleaning. When you have someone take care of your pool service, you get to step into a clean pool every time you use it. All you’ll see is the clear blue waters and a clean pool bottom, with maybe the errant leaf that blew in overnight. Your pool is simply a relaxing place to be.
Now don’t get us wrong; pools are worth it. But handling your pool cleaning probably isn’t. It’s an ongoing task that most people tire of quickly if they ever start doing it at all. Having a professional pool service take care of it takes such a load off the mind because you’ll know that your pool is always in tip-top shape.
You read that right. Hiring us will make you feel like your swimming pool is royalty. Why not? It's a kind of investment for your home too.
