A Swimming Pool Maintenance Service That Balances You Out

In the hot Texas heat, a pool is not just a luxury; it’s a necessity! When the temps get into the 90’s and above, the best place to be is poolside, relaxing with family and friends, a cold drink in hand.

Pool ownership is a wonderful thing and one might say that you’ll never find yourself alone if you have a pool; it creates an instant party! Friends and family flock to your backyard oasis to enjoy the relaxation and fun that a swimming pool provides. The only downside is: more bodies in the water, more pool maintenance for you. Unless you use a monthly swimming pool maintenance service, there are a few things you should be aware of.

Water Levels

With so many people getting in and out and splashing about, your water levels will decrease and need to be adjusted. With water level adjustment comes the need to adjust the multiple chemicals in the pool. You might think that it can’t really be that big of a deal, but believe us, we know what can happen when the chemicals get out-of-balance.

Chlorine Levels

Chlorine is the number-one chemical needed in your pool to keep everyone healthy. Chlorine is a disinfectant that kills all kinds of bacteria, bugs, and viruses. If you don’t balance it right, that tummy ache your granddaughter had yesterday can come back to haunt your whole family tomorrow. However, if you overload the chlorine levels in your pool, not only can your friends end up with red eyes that sting well into the evening, but too much chlorine can cause respiratory issues, nausea, and headaches.

pH Levels

Chlorine and other chemicals can alter the pH levels in your water, so the balance must be just right to keep the pool sparkling. If the pH balance is off, you could end up with a pool full of green algae, or your guests can end up with itchy, burning skin. And pH can wreak havoc on your plumbing and pool plaster when left unbalanced.

Safe Storage

The chemicals you use to keep your pool and guests healthy are usually the same used by a professional swimming pool maintenance service. But you must be sure to handle them with care. Getting a small bit of water in your chemicals can cause an acidic mess, while the proper storage of the chemicals is of the utmost importance. The last thing you need is for a pet or a small child getting into these pool products.
