An unclean pool can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria that can cause many health issues, including exacerbating chronic conditions. Additionally, an unclean pool can:

– Leaves stains on the surface of your pool
– Deteriorate filters and pumps, causing components to malfunction
– Contain a wide range of bacteria and viruses, that can lead to hospitalization
– Cause significant health problems, including ear, nose, and throat infections

Discolored Water

One of the most overt signs that your pool needs to be cleaned is water discoloration. When your water isn’t treated properly or frequently with the right combination of products, the water can develop algae or other contaminants that affect the color. Whether your pool is green, brown, or yellow, any color other than clear is a significant sign that professional cleaning is necessary.

Insects & Reptiles

Bacteria isn’t the only thing that could be living in your pool. Bugs tend to find their way around the water and sometimes accidentally fall in. No one likes to look in their pool and see bugs having a field day. Insects like mosquitoes, water beetles, gnats, tiny red pool mites, and more can end up in your pool, creating an unclean and unsanitary environment. The best thing you can do is call one of our professionals to get rid of these critters once and for all.

Irritation to Eyes and Skin

Minor skin and eye irritation are fairly normal if you’re swimming and like to keep your eyes open underwater. However, you could get a serious skin condition called “folliculitis” from unclean water that lingers on the skin long-term. The germ pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common cause of negative reactions to pool water, especially when water isn’t treated properly or chemically balanced.

Scaling

Scaling is the buildup of inorganic material found on pool tile, stone, fiberglass, and other hard surfaces. Normally, scaling is an indication that the calcium, pH, and alkaline levels in your pool are too high. Having your pool professionally cleaned can help mitigate these kinds of issues.

Chemical Balancing

Using quality products that provide lasting and accurate results, our certified technicians balance your pool to near-perfect numbers, so that your pool contains no unwanted guests like algae, bacteria, or metallic buildup.

Making sure your water chemistry is balanced in your pool is one of the most important maintenance items tasks in owning a pool. This task can be time-consuming and complicated.

Pool pH Levels

This refers to the acidity of your water and plays an important role in keeping your pool in mint condition. The water should always test at 7.4 to 7.6 on the pH scale. Balancing tip: If your pH is too low, the chlorine will dissipate quickly; much faster than it’s supposed to. On the other hand, if the levels are too high chlorine will become inactive. Keep the pH right and you’re off to a good start.

Alkalinity

In the most basic terms, alkalinity, or total alkalinity, refers to the amount of alkaline you have in the water. In general, remember that the reading should be between 80 to 100 ppm in a plaster pool and 100 to 150 ppm in a Fiberglass one. Balancing tip: Your pool alkalinity is closely tied to the pH levels. So, if this is off, it’s likely that your pH levels are off. The same is true for the inverse as well.

Total Dissolved Solids

There are a variety of dissolved elements in your pool water, ranging from calcium and copper to magnesium. As water evaporates from your pool, it leaves behind these minerals, which become concentrated and hard. This is when it becomes difficult to clean them out. Balancing tip: 3,000 ppm is the highest your mineral levels should reach. If they’re higher than that, drain the current water and add fresh water to balance everything out.

Stabilizer

This helps your chlorine work longer by protecting it from sunlight, which can break the cleaning chemical down. Some chlorine products have this added in, but if this isn’t the case for the product you use, you’ll need to add it to the pool on your own.

Balancing tip: If you find you’re going through chlorine faster than usual, it could be that your stabilizer levels are too low. However, high stabilizer levels aren’t good either, so keep the levels between 40 to 100 ppm.

As a pool owner, it’s important you understand the intricacies of how to keep your water clean and safe for swimming. The best way to do that is to keep all the important chemicals balanced.
