Swimming pool

Homeowners in Houston love swimming pools. They are a common feature in all homes.

 

The wide range of designs and materials available nowadays has made it easier for homeowners to install a pool in their house. However, installing a swimming pool in your home comes with its own maintenance and cleaning requirements. Some people attempt to take care of their pool themselves, but they find that it can take a lot of time. Here are some issues that should be handled by a professional:

Pool Leaks

The water level of your pool dropping significantly is the most obvious sign of a pool leak. When this happens, we recommend that you first check the areas near the pool equipment including; valves, heaters, pumps, and filters to determine if the leak is coming from the equipment. If there are no visible signs of leaks at the equipment, then the leak could be in the underground pool lines or skimmers. If you can’t see where the leak is coming from, you will need to have  a professional perform a leak detection.

Green Water

If your pool water has turned green or murky, either your chemicals are out of balance or your filter and pool equipment is malfunctioning. In the hotter months, algae grows quickly if you forget to maintain the pool chemical levels. Most of the time readjusting the chemicals will fix the issue, but others could indicate a more serious problem.

Calling a professional pool cleaning Houston TX and maintenance service can help you resolve this issue.

Malfunctioning Filtration Systems

Your filter and pump are your pool’s lifeline. Without them, your pool would be more like a pond complete with vegetation and aquatic creatures. With proper maintenance, your pool’s filter should last for many years. However, over time, normal wear and tear and neglect can cause systems to not work as efficiently.

It’s important to keep up with regular filter cleaning so that dirty parts don’t cause further damage on the rest of the system. If you don’t know how long ago the sand filter sand and laterals were changed, think about changing the sand out now. Make sure your D.E. and cartridge filters are cleaned regularly. If your filter grids or cartridges are damaged, have them replaced. With regularly scheduled maintenance and service, you can keep your pool free of algae.
