You rely on pool services throughout the summer to keep your pool looking great and making sure that everything is working properly. Then, you close down for the winter and forget about your pool until the weather warms up once again. Instead of waiting until summer, schedule pool maintenance all year long for the following reasons.
If you don’t spend much time around your equipment, it’s going to be difficult to know if there are any issues until the summer. Could you imagine what would happen if a pipe burst in the middle of the winter, but you didn’t realize it until it was time to open the pool? It could cost a lot of money and even more repairs to fix the problem. When someone is checking in on the pool on a regular basis, you can catch issues early on and make sure that everything is working properly.
Just because you’re not using the pool doesn’t mean you can put off balancing the chemicals. The chemicals need to stay balanced in order to protect the plaster and metals from scale buildup and corrosion. It can also help keep your pool clean by preventing algae growth.
Remove Staining Agents
Throughout the fall, leaves and other debris will get into your pool. You may not think about the importance of cleaning these things out of your pool when no one is using it, but they can actually stain the pool. You need to remove these things as soon as possible, or you’ll have stains to worry about when people start using the pool once again.
A pool professional can help you save money throughout the winter. For example, there comes a point when you don’t need to operate your pool filtration system as long throughout the day. Knowing when to do this will protect your pool and provide you with energy savings. Also, maintaining your pool will help reduce the number of repairs that you need to make, which can help save money in repairs.
Prepare for Summer
When you’re taking care of your pool throughout the winter, you won’t need to work as hard during the spring to prepare your pool for use. Everything should be kept in great condition, so your pool will be ready to use as quickly as possible.
If you’re not currently using a pool service this winter to care for your pool, it’s time to call in the professionals to help you keep your pool in great condition and ready for use this summer.
