Pool owners usually have good intentions when it comes to keeping on top of pool maintenance but life can get in the way, and before you know it your pool can become a bit neglected. However, getting in a pool technician for a service is an easy way to identify any issues and have your pool back up to standard. So what are some of the signs that dictate whether you should call your pool service sooner rather than later? Let’s take a look!
Ongoing Water Quality Issues
There’s nothing worse than battling with cloudy, unappealing water. If you find that your water quality is poor despite regular backwashing and chemical balancing, there might be more going on and it’s time to call for a pool service. Your technician will be able to take a look at any underlying issues which are contributing to pool water quality and give you pristine results.
Recurring Algae Infestations
If you’re faced with recurrent algae infestations despite treating the pool each time, it’s a good idea to call in the experts to take a look. Algae can be tricky to get rid of, and your pool service technician has the necessary experience to treat a green pool and give you advice for if it happens again. Alternatively there may be an underlying cause of the problem – for example the chlorinator may not be functioning correctly.
Problems with Equipment
Pool equipment can be expensive if you need a full replacement, so make sure you arrange a service if you’re experiencing problems with your equipment. If your filter isn’t doing its job properly or you are noticing that your pump is noisier than usual, get someone out sooner rather than later to see if repairs can be undertaken to avoid a costly replacement.
Suspected Leaks or Cracks
If you notice leaks or cracks in your pool, don’t ignore it! This could mean bigger issues which need to be addressed as soon as possible. The most telling sign of a leak or crack is that your water level is continually dropping at a faster rate than might be explained by evaporation or splashing.
Beginning of the Swimming Season
There’s no better time to get a professional service than at the beginning of the swimming season as the weather warms up. This is particularly the case when your pool has been a bit neglected over the colder months! A service will get your pool back up to standard so you can dive right in when the heat hits.
