Owning a pool can be lots of fun for the entire family. Until the pool needs to be cleaned, and then it can be a nightmare. Many homeowners will hire a professional company like Andy’s Pool Service to take care of the hassle. Hiring a full service company will cover everything a pool may need.
Cleaning and Chemicals
One of the most dreaded parts of owning a pool is maintaining it during the swimming season. It’s a constant battle to vacuum the pool bottom and to skim the water’s surface. Once the water is all clear of debris, the chemical levels need to be checked to get the water crystal clear. The technician will not only check the chlorine levels, they will check the pH levels to ensure the pool is safe to swim in. They will even check that there is enough water in the pool to ensure all the equipment runs correctly.
Along with cleaning the pool water, the technician will clean out the filter and the other parts of the cleaning system. They will remove the filter cartridge and rinse it off or replace it if necessary. All the skimmer baskets will be removed and rinsed off as well. Not only will they clean out the different equipment parts, they will inspect them for any signs of wear and replace them before they break.
Repairs or Renovations
During the weekly cleaning, the technician will also check the general condition of the pool structure. They will examine the sides for any signs of cracking or peeling. Ladders and rails will be checked for sturdiness. They will check for any loose tiles or trim as well. At the end of the season they can power wash the pool deck and clean the sides and bottom once it has been drained. They can also use an acid wash on the pool sides and bottom to remove any algae that has started to form in the pool. They can also give the pool a facelift by changing the surface color or even using new materials.
Many pool owners will look to companies like Andy’s Pool Service first when they need new equipment or even a new pool. The technicians will work with the various companies that manufacture the pool equipment and even the pool builders. They can give a knowledgeable opinion of each type and help compare and contrast to find the best one for the homeowner’s situation.
