Why is pool maintenance important? 

A swimming pool should be a place of relaxation, tranquility, and safety, as well as a beautiful centerpiece for your outdoor landscape. However, it can only remain attractive and peaceful if it’s properly and regularly maintained. 

Maintenance keeps your pool clean, appealing, and most importantly, safe, by balancing all the chemicals and ridding the water of any algae or dirt, along with making sure your equipment is functioning as it should. 

This ensures a safe swimming experience and a long-lasting pool when it’s properly looked after – protecting your investment and enhancing the enjoyment of the people who use it. 

How difficult is it to maintain a pool? 

Maintaining a pool, while not especially difficult, can sometimes become laborious and time-consuming if attempted without any professional help, mainly because it needs frequent attention to keep on top of things – especially if it’s a large pool or used regularly. 

You also have to purchase all the correct equipment to perform the required tasks, and always ensure that you’re keeping up with jobs, which can be quite challenging if you have a busy life. 

That’s why arranging for regular, even weekly, pool maintenance from an expert pool company can save you time and effort. By arranging consistent pool maintenance visits from a professional, you can relax in the knowledge that your pool will remain hygienic, attractive, and safe to swim in, all without lifting a finger. 

Not only that, if properly maintained to professional standards, the quality and longevity of your pool will be preserved for much longer, reducing the need for costly repairs. 

How to maintain a pool 

Arranging for weekly pool maintenance will ensure that all the essential tasks are completed to expert standards. 

These essential maintenance tasks include: 

  • Brushing walls, steps, and tiles to ensure cleanliness 
  • Testing water for pH and chemical imbalances, and then rebalancing accordingly 
  • Vacuuming the pool 
  • Performing checks on equipment and pool cleaners
  • Backwashing filters on a monthly basis 
  • Winterization of the pool to prepare it for the colder months
  • Visual checks to keep on top of repairs or damage 
  • Emptying baskets and skimmers 
  • Skimming the pool surface 
  • Netting the pool
