Weekly Pool Service Or Maintenance
Mesa Arizona Swimming pool maintenance is an extremely important factor in providing a safe and functional swimming pool environment. One of the key parts in swimming pool maintenance is keeping the chemicals properly balanced for healthy, clean water that is safe to swim in. Without the correct use of chemicals, your pool can essentially become a breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria and other pollutants that can cause illnesses, the growth of algae, as well as the corrosion to your pool lining. We provide chemical testing and teach you to do the same for your chlorine or non-chlorine based swimming pool. A good Pool Service will clean your pool weekly and should do the following services.
- The walls, steps and benches are all carefully brushed.
- The surface is completely netted.
- The floor is netted as needed.
- Pump and skimmer baskets are emptied as well as leaf canisters/bags on automatic cleaning systems. (This greatly reduces the chance of debris getting lodged in the pump’s impeller and jamming it).
- Filters are regularly backwashed when due.
- Pool equipment is monitored for optimal performance.
- Your water is tested. Sanitizer is added and your pool’s PH is balanced.
