Two Types of Swimming Pool Maintenance and Why You Need to Hire Both

Blog

Swimming pool maintenance services are divided into two separate kinds of services: repair and cleaning. These two kinds of services will work together to keep your pool in its best possible shape, which is why you should hire both kinds of pool services.

Cleaning Services

Pool maintenance primarily comes in the form of cleaning services. These services send a pool cleaning technician to your home every week. The pool cleaning technician strains out debris and bugs from the surface of the water in the pool and adjusts pool chemicals after sampling the levels of fungus, bacteria, and algae that have begun to form in the pool. The technician adds more or less chlorine and water treatment chemicals based on the tests he or she performs during the cleaning process. The technician will also check your pool pump to make sure it is working properly. Right before fall arrives and cooler weather begins, the technician will empty and cover your pool for you.

Repair Services

The flip side of the swimming pool maintenance coin is repair service. When you see a rip in the liner, a crack in the concrete, or clogged water lines, call a pool repair service. They also come out to clear the plumbing to the pool, clean out the pumps and filters, and check wiring if you have a pool that is lighted at night. They typically do not do cleaning services beyond what is needed for the mechanical components of the pool. If something much larger breaks or becomes a problem, pool repair technicians are also in charge of that. 

Why You Need Both Types of Pool Services

Could you get by with just a pool cleaning technician? Sure, you could, but the pool cleaning technician cannot provide mechanical maintenance and minor repairs. Could you get by with a pool repair technician? Yes, but your pool could become filthy and smelly, and then no one would want to swim in it. Additionally, if you allowed your pool to go without a cleaning technician to provide this type of maintenance service, eventually the bacteria, fungi, and algae would overgrow the pool, clog its systems, and cause a lot more damage to the pool. This could lead to costly repairs. You need both types of maintenance services so that the pool is clean and well-maintained, which will ensure that it is never broken or clogged and ready for daily swims.

Talking About Pool Seal Replacement

Hi there, I am Carrie Burke. The pool at my old house always seemed to spring a leak in the winter. I had a pool repair professional identify the cause of the constant leaks after living in that home for several years. The contractor let me know that the seals around the pump housing were slowly going bad. Replacing one seal at a time was just prolonging the maintenance process and causing damage to the electrical components inside the housing. I elected to have all of the seals replaced at the same time to prevent future leaks. I will use this site to detail the seal replacement process for you all. I hope that you can use the information I provide to keep your pool in perfect condition. Thank you for visiting my site.
