7 Reasons to hire a pool service

When you first get a swimming pool, the idea of hiring a pool service might seem unnecessary and too costly. After all, you take the DIY route for a lot of your house maintenance and repairs, and the internet is full of information on how to care for and maintain your pool by yourself. But unless you have a whole lot of time and the desire to learn an industry’s worth of new information, you’ll find that doing it yourself might not be the best option. This is a list of the 7 most important reasons why you might want to hold off on the Do-It-Yourself plan for your swimming pool and hire some pool experts

1: SAVE TIME

Swimming pools require regular cleaning and upkeep. It’s recommended to implement your pool care routine once a week, sometimes even twice a week. This means a lot more than you might think. It’s not just about skimming leaves. Proper pool maintenance involves a hefty to-do list:

  • Adding chemicals
  • Testing chemical levels
  • Cleaning out filters
  • Vacuuming
  • Making circulation adjustments
  • Inspecting pumps
  • Taking care of any necessary small repairs
  • Testing pool equipment

And the list goes on! Wouldn’t you rather spend that time enjoying your pool instead of tackling this task list? If you’re wondering what some of these things even are, you might consider our next reason.  

 2: AVOID ENDLESS RESEARCH

There is no limit to what you can teach yourself online these days and pool care is one of those things that you are sure to find a lot of information on. It can be really satisfying learning new skills and taking care of things yourself that you might normally get an expert for like fixing simple household plumbing or changing a spark plug in your car. It’s a pretty different situation when you look at the amount of proper research that’s involved in properly maintaining a pool. It can take up hours of your time, perhaps your whole weekend, just learning the basics. Hiring a regular pool service like Poolwerx allows you to reclaim that research time and to sit back while experienced pool technicians look after your pool. Plus, you won’t have to second-guess if you’re actually doing it right because if you aren’t doing things correctly, you’ll eventually come up against reason 3 on our list. 

3: AVOID COSTLY DAMAGE

Think about this: it might seem nice to save money by maintaining your pool by yourself, but in the long run, making mistakes on your pool’s maintenance can result in very costly damage. If your pump goes out because your filters get too clogged, that will need to be replaced. Did you know too much algae can result in a cracked pool lining? If you hire a pool service like Poolwerx, you know you are getting experienced help at the highest industry standards.  Scheduling a regular pool service means you won’t make mistakes that you’ll regret. What’s more, you can rest assured that pool experts like us are licensed and insured, so you are covered for anything that goes wrong while your pool is in our care. 

4: ENJOY YOUR VACATION

If you hire a pool service, it’s no problem for you to go out of town. You know your pool will be in great hands while you enjoy your vacation. When you come back, your pool will be ready for you to enjoy (rather than returning home to the nightmare of a green mess). It’s a lot like hiring a babysitter for your pool so you can enjoy your time away, worry-free! Check out our vacation pool service!

 5: SPOT THE ISSUES EARLY ON

When you hire an expert pool service like Poolwerx, you can avoid major problems with your pool’s well-being by catching them before they get out of hand. A tiny leak can be hard to spot and can cause huge damage over time, but you’ll be able to relax knowing that your pool experts can see the small things before they become big things that cost an awful lot of money to repair! 

6: YOUR POOL IS AN INVESTMENT

You might have spent tens of thousands of dollars getting your beautiful new swimming pool installed, and it’s definitely a great investment; not only can you and your family enjoy summer so much more, it can also be an asset when it comes to the value of your home. Having a sparkling, well-kept pool on your property increases your home’s value significantly versus a dirty pool that isn’t maintained. Be sure to invest in your investment! Scheduling regular pool service will ensure that your swimming pool will stay valuable to you in the long run. 

7: THE HEALTH OF YOUR LOVED ONES

A well-kept swimming pool ensures that you and your family can swim happily and safely, without the risk of health problems. Pools that don’t have their chemical levels checked carefully and regularly can result in illness for people who swim in them. Poolwerx is here to provide you and your pool with the expert care you need and deserve.

Tips to care for your pool after a storm When heavy rain, strong winds, and severe storms hit, your pool needs extra care to ensure it’s safe and healthy. Typically after heavy rainfall, a pool will require phosphate removers and adjuster chemicals, but always start with the basics after bad weather strikes and check these things first: Rain heavily dilutes chemicals, especially chlorine and salt. Add extra chlorine, even if you have a salt system, to prevent the levels dropping too low. This minimizes the time for algae to bloom. Check that none of your electrical equipment (i.e. pump, chlorinator) have been damaged by the weather and that no puddles have formed around them. If it looks like there's a safety issue, contact a professional right away. Storms can cause the following: Debris & damage to equipment and surfaces. Motor burnout/fusion. Dilution of chlorine, salt and other chemicals, reducing their effectiveness. Additional phosphates can wash into your pool. Phosphate is food for algae, meaning a potential green pool.
