Steps to Swimming Pool Maintenance
Swimming pool maintenance http://palmbeachpooldoctorinc.com/
is a technical process, which focuses on clean water and balanced water chemistry, therefore the maintenance must be a weekly task of pool cleaning and maintaining the chemical balance of the pool water by testing the pH and free available chlorine in the pool water, as well as conducting shock-treat. If the following incidence occurs, such as: heavy rains and windstorms, more swimmers using the pool, foul odor from the pool water, extreme temperatures, swimmers experiencing burning, red eyes, algae growth, and murky, slimy water, additional shock treatment must be done.
When you properly balanced your swimming pool water by maintaining the correct levels of pH of water, alkalinity and calcium hardness, the following positive results take place: metal equipment and accessories of the pool are prevented from corrosion; plaster surfaces of the pool are protected from etching; prevents scale formation which can damage pool equipment, stain surfaces, and cloud your water; and prevents eye and skin irritation.
In properly maintaining the chlorine level of the swimming pool, see to it that the level is in between 1 and 4 ppm in order to prevent bacteria and algae growth, as well as keeping proper sanitation of the pool. Sources of chlorine are available to help the pool clean, they are: basic chlorinating tabs, liquid chlorine, chlorinating tabs, or chlorinating granules. The basic chlorinating tabs are slow-dissolving tablets, available in 1 inch and 3 inch sizes, has a built-in stabilizer to protect the chlorine from sunlight burn-off, and can be used in a floating dispenser, skimmer or automatic chlorinator. The properties of liquid chlorine are: two or three times stronger when formulated for pools, easy to apply and effective as a sanitizer, and has a short shelf life. There are many varieties of chlorinating tablets that can effectively remove contaminants in the pool water, as well as soften the water and protect the pool equipment. Chlorinating granules have multi-functional capabilities, like chlorinating, shocking and killing algae in a single, daily application.
Shocking the swimming pool should be performed every week, without fail, in order to do the following: get rid of contaminants which can cause cloudy water, get rid of chlorine odor and eye irritation, and reducing the need for other chemicals. A variety of shock products are available in the market, such as basic shock products, which have these properties: kill bacteria, breakdown cosmetics, suntan lotions, perspiration and other swimmers' wastes, reduces chlorine odor and eye irritation, and helps to keep the pool sparkling clear, and multi-functional shock products, which have the following properties: restore water clarity by destroying bacteria and swimmers' wastes, balances the pH of the water, enhances filtration, protects pool water from algae growth.
There are two regular tasks, better performed by Delray Beach Pool Service
, that must be habitually done for your swimming pool: the daily task, which is skimming the debris out of the pool and cleaning all skimmer baskets during the swimming season, and the weekly task, which is testing the pool water, cleaning the walls and floor using cleaners, brushes, and vacuums and hosing down the pool area after cleaning.
