When it comes to taking care of your pool, many owners don’t know what to expect with routine pool service and maintenance. This is especially true of new pool owners, but even some owners who have been taking care of their pool for years have very little idea what a good company like NorCal Pool Service does during a routine service and maintenance visit.

Fortunately, it’s not that hard to get a handle on what needs to happen, so here’s a look at some of the most important things that take place during a quality service and maintenance check on your pool.

Start with timing.

Most good pool service and maintenance companies recommend a weekly check during swimming season, and they may adjust your schedule according to your level of usage. This check will typically include a thorough cleaning in which leaves and debris are skimmed off the water, sediment is brushed off the pool walls, the pool gets vacuumed and the skimmer is cleaned.

Beyond that, the offseason service tends to depend on how often the filter and pump need to be serviced. This may be monthly, bimonthly or every few months, and a thorough cleaning will be performed as well.

A quality service check will also cover the chemicals used to maintain your pool. This is slightly more complicated-the pH level in your pool should be tested, and the correct chemical will be added as needed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Chemical balance is the key element here.

Chlorine is obviously necessary to keep your pool water clean, but too much chlorine can irritate both the eyes and the skin of swimmers.

Algae control is another element of balance that many pool owners don’t know much about. Nearly all pool manufacturers issue recommendations about the level of chemicals needed to prevent algae, and they need to be followed to the letter.

Hire The Experts

While it is possible to do pool service and maintenance on your own, it’s not always the best way to go, especially for busy people who occasionally forget to do this. If you’re one of those types, or you simply want seasoned professionals to service and maintain your pool in the SF Bay area, you need to put in a call to NorCal Pool Service or check out their website, norcalpool.com.
