Purchasing a pool is a big investment, an investment you surely want to protect. Whether an above ground or an in ground pool, maintaining your pool and taking care of your pool equipment is critical to the overall condition of your pool as well as its life expectancy. Since your pool is one of the biggest investments you will make, it is important to be aware of the many risks that come into play when maintaining your pool. There are a variety of important, essential tasks that must be performed on a routine basis in your efforts to keep your pool healthy and functional. Being such a large investment, why would any pool owner risk making common mistakes when caring for pool equipment since these very risks can ultimately lead to much more costly mistakes down the road?
Here at Metroplex H20 Solutions we offer a variety of maintenance service programs and packages that will ensure the proper care and maintenance of your pool and pool equipment. Our highly skilled and certified technicians are here to take care of all your pool maintenance needs and to resolve any and all issues, whether common mistakes or otherwise. With a number of common mistakes often made that result in pool equipment risks and problems, we thought we would take this time to make our valued clients aware of some of those mistakes.
To begin with, algae problems are quite common in all types of pools. Most pool owners are unaware of how to properly resolve this problem and ultimately turn to the use of an automatic cleaner to blow the algae out of the pool. The fact is that an automatic cleaner can actually make your problem much worse since it will blow the algae all over the pool rather than removing it. Instead, to resolve this issue your pool needs to be manually vacuumed routinely which is one of the many services our qualified technicians can provide.
Another common issue that can result in damage to your pool equipment is keeping the pH levels in your pool too low. This can cause your pool to become too acidic, which can be very harmful to your pool’s water as can high levels of chemicals in your pool as well. High levels can damage your pool’s maintenance equipment, the filter, pump, heater, and even the vinyl liner of the pool. If you have a difficult time maintaining appropriate pH levels and other chemical levels in your pool then reach out to our expert technicians. As part of our maintenance service packages we will routinely test your pool’s water to ensure that the pH level in your pool is high enough and that the alkalinity levels are appropriate as well. It is important that all chemical levels are balanced.
Finally, we want to make our clients aware of the importance of keeping your pool water hard which serves to protect the fiberglass and your filter system. Many pool owners are unaware of the importance of calcium hardness in the water and the fact that proper calcium hardness levels will essentially prolong the life expectancy of your pool and will contribute to the overall health of your pool’s interior. Again, this is a service included in our service plans.
Being a pool owner certainly has its challenges which is why we want to ensure that all our clients are aware of the various maintenance service packages we offer here at Metroplex H20 Solutions and the importance of avoiding these common pool mistakes. If you find you are experiencing any of these problems, or find that you simply do not have the time to dedicate to your pool’s maintenance, then be sure to give a shout out to our highly trained technicians today.
