In ground pools require maintenance to keep them clean and healthy. Above ground pools can need just as much maintenance and servicing. This is something that many people choose to do on their own, but later realize that there is a lot of work involved. If you are tired of doing the maintenance and service to your above ground pool, here are some things that a pool service can help your with:
1. Opening And Shocking Your Pool To Start The Season
Opening your pool for the beginning of the season can be a lot of work. You will need to remove the cover and remove winterizing systems like pillows and skimmer covers. When doing this, you will also need to start cleaning the water by doing the initial shock treatment to your pool. This will help clean the water and get your pool ready for the swimming season.
2. Regular Cleaning Of Pool And Checking Water Quality
It is important to regularly clean your pool and check the water quality. This should be done often in between shock treatments. You may want to remove debris from the skimmer and vacuum it. Using an automated vacuum when your pool is not in use can help keep the water clean and reduce the need for cleaning.
3. Shocking Pool During The Season To Maintain Water Quality
It is also important to shock your pool regularly throughout the swimming season. This is something that you may want to do before and after heavy use of the pool. You can also do this during heatwaves and after heavy rains to ensure that your pool has a healthy level of chlorine. Doing this can prevent problems with algae blooms, discoloration of the water and odors.
4. Closing And Winterizing The Pool For The End Of The Season
At the end of the season, you will be ready to close your pool. This task will involve winterizing your pool, removing and storing the filter, and adding the cover. For above ground pools, there are pillows that can be used in the water to help prevent damage from ice during the winter months. They help compensate for the expanding and contracting of ice during winter freezes.
If you have an above ground pool, these are some of the things that need to be done to keep your pool in good condition.
