Time for a Tune-Up: Why Pool Maintenance Is Important
Everything mechanical needs occasional maintenance. You change the oil in your car and check refrigerant levels in your HVAC unit, don’t you? These tune-ups are routine. Why not add your pool to the maintenance rounds?
Pools Need Love Too (in the Form of Inspections)
Owning a pool is more than just sitting through the installation and adding chemicals every once in a while. There are numerous moving parts and delicate mechanisms involved in making your pool function properly. Over time, regular wear, deposits, and damage can leave your pumps, filters, etc., in less-than-stellar condition.
If you want to protect your investment, then you need to take advantage of professional pool maintenance services. When performed by professionals, these services can stop leaks, make repairs, increase efficiency, and catch problems before they become too serious. Your pool needs this kind of attention and care, just as you need regular checkups with the doctor.
Types of Pool Tune-Up Services
There are many maintenance services available to pool owners. At Pools of Fun, certified technicians complete all our jobs with a knack for customer service. We strive to make your pool-owning experience enjoyable, so we provide a variety of services to maintain your equipment, including:
- Pool resets. This process includes a complete drain and refill of your pool. It’s necessary when water has turned “septic,” or become too unclean and imbalanced to be salvaged. We can also use this service to smooth out wrinkles in the pool liner, making for smoother textures underfoot.
- Auto cover tune-up. Your pool cover is an important device. It keeps your mechanics safe from debris, but also keeps out unwanted animal visitors. During this service, we’ll fully inspect the webbing and fabric for damage or tears. We’ll also repair any hardware, including castings, tracks, stops, guides, sensors, and pulleys. This ensures smooth operation when it’s time to reopen.
- Salt system cleanings. Your salt cell can suffer from buildup, reducing the efficiency of the filter system and wasting energy. Our professionals can soak the cell in acid to clean it in addition to checking valves, chlorine production, and water samples.
Whether your pump is beginning to slow down or your heater needs some maintenance, you shouldn’t ignore the condition of your pool. After all, a little TLC can go a long way toward securing many happy years of pool-owning bliss. Call Pools of Fun today to schedule your maintenance services.
