If you’d much rather swim in your pool than maintain it, you’re not alone. Many pool owners dislike having to test and treat their water each week — not to mention cleaning the walls, floors, and filter. And that’s why so many pool owners rely on professional pool service providers.
Let’s take a look at all of the benefits of having your pool maintained by a professional.
It Keeps it Functional
A well-maintained pool allows you and your family to enjoy your outdoor living space. Whether you plan to enjoy private family time or to host pool parties, a clean pool is an absolute must-have.
It Keeps Your Water Safe
Dirty pool water can cause a whole host of health problems. Water that isn’t properly sanitized can acquire parasites which cause a skin condition known as swimmer’s itch. Untreated water can also result in eye, ear, and throat infections. If the water is swallowed, it can even cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, and nausea.
It Saves You Money Long-Term
Keeping your pool well-maintained does cost you money, but it can save you from having major issues, resulting in costly repairs, down the road. Ensuring your filters are cleaned, your water is tested and treated regularly and your equipment is functioning well is a good investment in your pool.
It Extends Your Pool’s Lifespan
When you hire a professional to keep your pool well-maintained, you not only have far fewer repair headaches, the lifespan of your pool is increased. A vinyl-lined pool can last more than two decades if they’re well-maintained. Other than routine maintenance, your only cost will be a new pool liner every eight to 10 years.
What Services You’ll Receive
A weekly maintenance package includes skimming your pool water, cleaning the floor and walls, emptying the skimmer and pump baskets and testing and balancing the water.
But you can also opt for additional services such as opening and closing your pool for the season.
A professional opening includes removal and cleaning of your winter cover, a pool inspection and reconnection of pool lines, filters, pumps, and heaters as well as getting the pool’s filtration system running properly. Your technician will make sure no repairs are needed and will even reinstall ladders or stairs.
With a professional closing, your technician will balance your water, clean your pool, clean equipment such as your pool heater, partially drain your pool, clean the pump and filter, blow out the lines and install a winter cover.
No matter what service package you choose, it’s a great investment in the longevity of your pool.
