Express Pool Care contractors explain what a pool service contractor does for Arizona pool owners
When you have a swimming pool in Arizona your home will be the most popular one on the block. You will have friends, family and neighbors at your home hoping for a drip in the pool. Also, as you know, when you have swimming pool, your yard will be a party waiting to happen! If you’re new to pool ownership you may wonder, “why should I hire a pool service contractor?” In many cases, pool maintenance can be a do-it-yourself task, but many pool owners find they spend far too much time and in many cases much more money when they take on the pool maintenance themselves.
Why should I hire a pool service contractor?
When you have a swimming pool, it needs almost continual care and maintenance. This is especially true when the temperatures are topping out in the triple digits and when the monsoon storms blow through. The heat and the dirt and debris from a monsoon storm can quickly throw your pool water chemistry out of balance and that could lead to algae growth — and an unusable pool.
A pool service contractor will be on a reliable schedule for caring for your swimming pool. Sure, you may need to skim and do a bit of work on your pool between service visits, but it will be minimal. If you decide to clean and maintain your pool yourself, you will need to invest in all of the chemicals up front and you will also need to find a safe place to store them as they are toxic if ingested.
Your pool contractor will skim debris, he will inspect the pool equipment to assure everything is working correctly. He will check the pressure of the pool pump. He will backwash the pool when necessary. A pool contractor is experienced in testing the water chemicals and will know immediately if something is not in line. More importantly, he will know which chemicals to add and in what measures to bring the water chemicals back where they belong to keep your water bacteria free and swimmable. Pool chemistry can be confusing to a novice and if the chemicals aren’t properly maintained the pool can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and algae.
Let’s face it. You have a swimming pool because you want to swim. You may even forget when you last cleaned the pool or checked the chemical balances and that is something a pool service contractor is ideal for — he visits regularly and keeps your pool ready for all of those impromptu pool parties!
