Angus Residential Pool Services

There is no better way to enjoy the summer than poolside in your own backyard. A great pool is the ideal place to host a backyard barbecue, get some exercise, relax and entertain. As great as it is to have an accessible swim space right at home, there is a lot of work involved in maintaining a swimming pool. Whether you have owned a pool in the past or this is your first time managing a swim space, professional help is always a good idea. Calling an expert for your Angus residential pool services means crystal clear water, functional filtration systems, added value and reduced running costs.

Pool care at home might look easy, but pools and hot tubs are more complicated than meets the eye. Even with a testing kit, pool vacuum and skimmer on hand, keeping your swim space sanitary is a complicated process that means care and attention all year long. Cloudy water might look terrible, but the risks don’t stop at visuals. Keep swimmers safe with a bit of help from our Puddle technicians.

Residential Pool Care: What to Know About Water Systems

Your pool is made up of many moving points, each of which is key to a fully functional system. It is easy to focus on pool water alone but even crystal clear water will not stay that way for long if your pool pump fails. If there is no water circulating in your system, chemicals are not being dispersed through the entire pool and this allows bacteria to take hold and thrive. In order to maintain a safe swim space for yourself, friends, family, tenants, guests and customers, it is important to address your water system in multiple steps.

Step 1: Remove Debris: When you pull back the cover from your pool, it is common to find debris floating on water surfaces or sunken at the bottom of the pool. Removing debris provides a clear visual and is the first step to removing contaminants. Standard pool vacuums are not designed to reach into the hard angles of your pool, so speciality tools are always best. Skimmer baskets are also designed to collect debris so regular emptying is necessary to keep contaminants out and systems running smoothly.

Step 2: Scrub Walls: With every body that enters your pool water, there is something left behind in your pool water. Sunscreen, body lotions, hair products, makeup and more will seep off of bodies and into pool water. These materials will float along water surfaces until eventually settling on walls, creating residue around water lines. This not only looks awful but adds bacteria, creates slimy surfaces and creates a negative visual. The higher your traffic, the most contaminants are added into your pool water. This means monitoring water chemistry becomes even more important. Without regular application of pool chemicals, it will not take long for algae growth to take over and spread.

Step 3: Balancing With Pool Chemicals: it is always a good idea to have test strips on-hand but proper water balancing covers a wide variety of factors in order to keep swim spaces sanitary. In addition to common sanitizers like chlorine and bromine, balancing means monitoring pH levels, total alkalinity, calcium and more. It is important to properly test water before and after chemical applications to properly dial-in your treatments and ensure that your water is sanitary.

Step 4: Check Your Pool Filter: It is easy to overlook your pool filter over the course of a busy day. These systems are designed to trap and hold bits of debris, removing them from circulation and creating clear water. Cartridge filters should be cleaned out every couple of months, while sand filters should be fully emptied and sand replaced every 3 – 5 years.

Step 5: Inspect Parts & Mechanisms: Stagnant water is much more prone to contamination. Functional pumps, motors and plumbing lines keep water moving and circulate sanitizers throughout entire systems. A trained eye can spot issues with equipment, as well as liners. A small tear in a vinyl liner will become worse over time. It is easy to overlook a small tear but as it becomes worse, it could mean having to perform a full replacement instead of a small tear.

Step 6: Get Ready For the Season: Pool maintenance throughout the swim season will often focus on water chemistry and debris removal but as seasons change, so do the needs of your water systems. In an in-ground pool, dropping the water level before the first freeze is key to protecting pools over the cold season and preventing unexpected damage. When opening up in spring, a multi-part chemical treatment, heavy scrubbing, inspections and deep cleans are necessary to get your system ready for spring.
