Pool Service Las Vegas, Pool Cleaning,
It's the start of what appears to be a wonderful pool season here in the Vegas Valley. As you inspect your pool to see what needs to be done to get ready for the season, you are shocked to see that what was once crystal blue has turned emerald green! But... it's only been a week since you last inspected it... how can this happen? There are a few things that can effect your pool very quickly... Let us help you understand how to see the warning signs of what can become a very smelly, slimy problem.
1. Improper Water Chemistry- Pools require chemicals weekly to keep it sanitized. If you miss a week, or several weeks your pool can turn green quick.
2. Poor Water Circulation - Pools require proper filtration to cause oxidization to kill bacteria. If the filter is dirty, or there is poor circulation in the pool, it will lead to a green pool.
3. Algae Growth - Algae can also develop because of several reasons, including poor maintenance., Over time, your pool surface can start to deteriorate, and as a result, the surfacing will “suck up” additional chemicals and embed algae in the surface.
4. Poor Maintenance – Pools require work each week such as brushing the walls and steps, vacuuming and skimming. If you do not do this on a weekly basis it will lead to larger problems.
5. Pump Does Not Run Long Enough – Surprising enough, this simple step causes more pools to go green quick. During the summer months, it is recommended to run your pool pump 8 hours a day. During the winter months, you can trim it down to 4-6 hours per day.
It's been our experience that the most common problems are homeowners simply do not realize that their pool is the second largest investment on their home. Pools are so much fun, it's your time to share with family and friends, to relax and forget your troubles.
But, skipping regular maintenance could easily turn your pool to a swamp. Remember, as a pool owner there is a decent amount of work each week to maintain the beautiful serenity that you want to enjoy. And, don't beat yourself up- it happens to the best of us!
