Whether you have a salt water pool or a chlorine pool, there are standard operations that must be performed in order to keep your pool chemistry levels maintained and for your water to be safe to swim in. You could call in the professional for Pool Service Pearland to spend on average an hour a week to do this service or you could do it yourself. In as little as a few minutes a day, you could save yourself money on a pool service and keep your water maintained all year round.
The first thing that needs to be done is a basic skimming of your pool surface and cleaning the skimmer basket. If you do this on a daily basis, you could feasibly save yourself half an hour a week in maintenance alone. A simple check around the pool area will help determine if your dirty pool can be better maintained by better yard landscaping. Make sure that all bushes, trees or dirt and gravel are away from the pool and not hanging directly over. Not only do you keep your pool cleaner from pollen and leaves but you will also maintain a higher temperature in your pool.
One area of Pool Service Pearland many homeowners like to leave to the professionals is the pool chemistry. Depending on how often you use your pool or what season you are in, you do not necessarily have to test every week, but the more you use the pool, the more accurate you want your chemistry. You can test at home, have your professional service test your water or many places now offer free water testing if you bring the water to them.
The pH balance and chlorine level of the pool is what you are checking for in the chemistry. Regardless if you have a salt pool or a chlorine pool, both are working off creating enough chlorine to keep your water safe. The salt is just being converted into a chlorine that is softer for your pool however, it may have other side affects such as rusting particular equipment. A group of chemicals such as muriatic acid, chlorine, salt, may be needed to have on hand if you plan on working on your pool weekly with quarterly Cryer Pools & Spas Inc professional maintenance.
