Maintaining your swimming pool is not a task you should do personally unless you have all the necessary expertise for the task. Otherwise, you should seek the service of a professional pool service company.
If you own a swimming pool, then you know how much of an investment a pool is. You are equally very aware of how important pool maintenance and pool cleaning is.
As summer gradually draws near, it’s time to get those pools clean, especially if a summer ‘staycation’, pool party or backyard barbecue is on your bucket list for this summer. Before we dive into who should clean your pool and why let’s quickly look at what pool maintenance entails.
OK, so the previous post about hiring a pool cleaner is not an option for you. Why, because like me your a DIY guy or gal. Paying some one very month to maintain your pool seems unreasonable when you can do it yourself, right? Right. So the best way to learn about maintaining your pool correctly is to do some research and well get to it. But, making mistakes as a non-professional can later turn the money you saved into expensive repair bills. Lets face it you're not professional pool cleaner, and if you were you wouldn't be reading this. I'm not here to discourage any readers, but I would like you to be honest about your lack of knowledge and bring in a professional at least for opening and closing you pool. Bringing in a pro at least twice a year is a small price to pay to help keep your pool and wallet healthy year round. So let get to it.
I'll keep it short and sweet with the cleaning basics and finally some warnings to save yourself headaches later on.
