Once you’ve owned a pool for a while, you can start to get into a rhythm with maintenance; and a lot of people are able to keep their pool generally looking pretty good. However, there are times when your pool starts to look less than pristine, and there are occasions where it’s best to get a professional to give your pool an extra helping hand. Whether you’re experiencing issues with your equipment or are just struggling to keep on top of maintenance, remember that life can be made a little bit easier with a pool technician you can rely on. Today, we’re looking at some common situations where it might be a good idea to call in the experts.

New pool owner

If you’ve recently moved into a house that has a pool, now is the perfect time to get a pool technician in to help. They can take you through basic pool maintenance so you feel more confident going forward and look after the pool yourself in between servicing. Getting professional service also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about operating your pool equipment and general troubleshooting. We provide a pool ‘handover’ service that is perfect for those new to their pool.

Water quality issues

If you’re doing everything you can to keep your water clean and healthy but you’re still struggling with water quality issues, it’s probably a good idea to call in the experts. Your pool technician will bring your water up to standard and can also do some troubleshooting to find the cause of your water quality problems. Cloudy water not only looks unappealing but it could also be a sign that there’s something more serious going on with the health of your pool. Get your technician in to take a look – they can check the chemical balance of your water and service your equipment to help find what the issue is.

Algae infestation

Everyone with a pool has the occasional algae infestation and it’s certainly not a sign of poor maintenance – it happens to the best of us! If you’ve ever experienced an unappealing green pool, you’ll know that it can take quite a process to get it cleared. The process is made even more frustrating if the algae seem to keep coming back no matter how diligent you are. If this sounds familiar and you’re struggling with a continually green pool, contact your pool technician and get some professional help. They’ll help get your water crystal clear and also give you tips to avoid recurrences.

Equipment problems

If you suspect that you have issues with your pool equipment, it’s best to have it looked at sooner rather than later. Getting your pool technician onto any problems with your equipment in the early stages means that they can hopefully carry out repairs so you can avoid expensive replacements. The last thing you want is for something as simple as a leaky o-ring to eventually result in more serious damage if left too long. Whether it’s your filter struggling to keep your water clear or your pump making strange noises, it’s a good time to book in a professional service.

Equipment maintenance

Even if your equipment seems to be running well and you’re having no problems with water quality, it’s important to get your pool equipment serviced every so often to ensure it’s running as efficiently as possible. At the very least, aim to get your pool technician at the beginning of the swimming season to carry out any minor repairs or replacements which may be necessary.

Lack of time

We all have good intentions when it comes to pool maintenance but so often, lack of time gets in the way. If you’re finding that your regular pool maintenance is slipping due to a lack of time and your pool is looking increasingly unappealing, you can always outsource it to your pool technician to get some of the pressure off. Whether you just need a helping hand every few weeks or want to start a regular servicing schedule, your technician will save you time by efficiently carrying out the necessary maintenance and repairs.

Upcoming event

An upcoming event is a perfect time for arranging a professional pool service. Not only does it mean you don’t have to worry about doing it yourself in the days leading up to your party, but a professional service will also deliver pristine results so your outdoor area will look its best. Whether it’s a relaxed birthday party or a more formal reception, your outdoor entertaining is made much easier when you have the professionals taking care of your pool area.

Preparing for sale

If your house is going out to the market, it’s all about presentation and it’s best to call in your technician for a cleaning service. Not only can they ensure that the water looks perfect for all those upcoming inspections, they can also service your equipment and carry out necessary repairs. This means that your real estate agent can let potential buyers know that the pool has been professionally serviced and all the equipment is up to the standard.
