Here at Pool Assist, we understand that you want the best results possible when it comes to a professional pool service. But how do you know if you’re getting a quality pool servicing company? A reliable pool technician can make all the difference when it comes to the aesthetics and hygiene of your pool. Let’s take a look at what you need to consider when it comes to hiring the best pool service for your Perth pool.
When should you use a pool servicing company?
There are a few signs that may indicate that you need the help of a professional pool servicing company. These could include:
Water quality issues
Water quality issues can be an ongoing struggle for pool owners and it’s common to find yourself battling with cloudy water or persistent algae despite being vigilant with water testing. Not only does poor quality water look pretty average, it can also be unsafe for pool users. Your pool technician has the necessary expertise to diagnose water quality issues and treat the problem for sparkling results.
If you’re finding that your pool equipment isn’t operating as efficiently as normal, you’ve noticed leaks or cracks, or there are strange noises happening, it’s time to call your pool technician to take a look. Your pool technician will be able to take a look and sort out any issues, which can help you avoid expensive replacements.
New equipment installation
Your pool equipment won’t last forever and there will come a time when replacing your equipment, such your filter or pump, will be in order. Your technician will be able to give specific recommendations and install your new equipment so it can get to work straight away. They can also show you how to operate your equipment to avoid confusion in the future.
Lack of time
We all have the best intentions when it comes to pool maintenance but it can be a big job. One of the main reasons why people turn to a pool servicing company is that they simply don’t have the time to spend looking after their pool. A pool technician takes the worry out as you’re able to enjoy a beautifully clear pool without the associated hard work.
What do I look for in a pool servicing company?
So, you’ve decided to hire a professional pool servicing company to help look after your pool. Great idea! The next step is to find a reliable company who will offer good service. One of the best places to start is to ask other people if they have any recommendations for a pool cleaner. You can also go online and look at services in your local area. Once you’ve narrowed your search, look at reviews on Google, testimonials on the company website and feedback on social media to get a better idea of the level of service the company provides.
Remember that It’s also important that you use a legitimate service with the right accreditation. Look for a business who is accredited with the Swimming Pool and Spa Association WA (SPASA WA) so you can be confident that they operate to a high standard. You should also check that they have the right insurance cover in place so you’re protected financially if something goes wrong. Although it can be tempting to hire someone who offers a cheap price, you may be disappointed with less than pristine results.
Once you’ve found a company you like, don’t book them into regular servicing just yet. It’s always a good idea to do a test run first to make sure you’re getting the level of service you expect. Book your new technician in for a once off clean and then see how happy you are with the finished product. If they offer spot on service, go ahead and book them in for the future!
What should you expect from your pool cleaning service?
Although the services your pool company can offer depends on your needs, there are several things you can expect to be carried out during standard maintenance of your pool. These include:
Testing the water
Each time your pool technician comes out, they’ll test your water to make sure the water is clean and safe to swim in.
Balancing the chemicals
If your pool water is unbalanced after testing, your technician will add the necessary chemicals to ensure your pH is at the optimal level between 7.2 and 7.6
Backwashing or cleaning cartridges
Your technician will carry out a backwash where necessary to ensure your sand filter can run efficiently. If you have a cartridge filter, this will also be cleaned to ensure it’s free of dirt and debris.
Brushing and vacuuming
Your technician will do the hard work of removing debris from the water, scrubbing the sides of the pool and vacuuming if necessary.
Clear skimmer and pump baskets
Your technician will take care of built-up debris by clearing out leaves and other debris from your skimmer and pump baskets.
Your technician will also check to make sure all of your pool equipment is in good working order so your pools runs optimally between services.
