It’s almost time for your Atlanta swimming pool to open for summer. Many homeowners rely on a residential pool maintenance service to take care of opening their pool for the season, but routine pool maintenance isn’t something that only happens at the beginning and end of the swimming season. There are several benefits to having a professional take care of your residential pool maintenance rather than handling things yourself.
Save Time with a Pool Maintenance Service Plan
Backwash and Chemical Balance
The hardest part of maintaining a clean and healthy swimming pool is keeping the chemicals balanced. The daily process begins with checking the current water acidity and adding the correct chemicals to balance the water. Factors to consider when adding chlorine, bromine, and other pool chemicals include water temperature and water cloudiness.
Ideally, you will keep your acid to alkaline balance at a pH balance of 7.4 or 7.5 to allow the chlorine to work efficiently to destroy harmful bacteria. The process of daily balancing your swimming pool may be something you prefer to handle yourself as it can only take a few minutes when your pool filter is working.
Once or twice a month your pool maintenance should include backwashing and shocking to remove any bacteria or algae growth. These steps require a more involved chemical balance process including adding Calcium hypochlorite, Lithium hypochlorite, Granular chlorine, Potassium peroxymonosulfatenon-chlorine shock.
Vacuum and Tile Cleaning
It takes a lot of physical exertion to clean the tiles at the water line of your pool. Depending on the shape of your pool and the type of decking surrounding it you might need specialized equipment to reach parts of the pool wall. It can be a hassle to find time to scrub pool tile, but you must include it in your routine maintenance plan along with vacuuming to prevent dirt build up.
Thorough residential pool maintenance includes emptying skimmer baskets, brushing walls, cleaning the pool equipment area and the tasks listed above. Are you looking for a professional to handle your Atlanta pool maintenance? Contact Pinnacle Pool Services.
