With great power (owning a pool) comes great responsibility (maintaining your pool). Really, though, proper pool maintenance is something every pool owner has to pay attention to. Otherwise, you may end up with algae, unwanted odors, and slimy or cloudy water. All of that can in turn cause itchy skin and burning eyes if someone still braves the waters.
While the bulk of pool maintenance tasks can be taken care of by yourself, it’s also an option to hire a pool maintenance company. More and more people are turning to pool maintenance companies as they find doing the maintenance themselves to be tedious and not worth the effort. If you’re thinking about hiring your own pool maintenance company, here’s what you’re in for.
During the spring, a pool maintenance company is focused mainly on opening pools ahead of the upcoming busy season. This includes removing pool covers, cleaning and skimming the pool water, checking pumps and any other equipment to see that they’re in functioning condition, balancing the pool water’s chemicals, and anything else a pool owner may need.
As you might imagine, summer is typically the busiest season for a pool maintenance company as they add additional stops to their otherwise-busy schedules. Like spring, they often have to check chemical levels, skim debris, and ensure that pool water is safe to swim in. Now that people are actually using their pools, many homeowners become more concerned with adding additional safety features like handrails, pool fences, and pool lifts.
Fall Pool Maintenance
Once pool season starts to cool off, pool techs do the opposite of what they did in the spring. It’s a winddown period where pools get closed, covers are put on and inspected, new equipment is inspected, chemicals are added to the water to prevent algae growth while the pool is closed, and all equipment gets covered.
Winterizing a Pool
You may think that a pool maintenance company isn’t very busy during the winter but there’s still plenty to do. Think of all the indoor pools out there where winter is actually their busiest season! Beyond that, building new pools and remodeling existing pools takes up much of their time during the winter.
