Swimming pool maintenance services are very easy and enjoyable but sometimes difficult and overwhelming. The activities require enough time set aside and if possible there should be someone taking care of the pond. Weather should determine when it is necessary to clean the pool. During windy season leaves are many on the pond thus more activities and during the hotter season shocking is done more often.

There are many activities of maintenance though some are the more primary. Netting is one of the main activities. Leaves and debris fall in the pool regularly thus netting is very appropriate. There are different types of nets used in netting. There are deep leaf nets which are used to reach leaves and other substances that have settled on the floor and also there are skimmers nets used to remove floating items.

Another main activity to be done regularly is brushing. Walls and the floor are thoroughly brushed. This is usually takes at most ten minutes. Brushing helps to remove small and unseen substances in the walls and the floor. When this is done at least twice per week the pool is definitely clean. Lack of regular brushing may cause an outbreak of algae. Nylon brush is recommended for sides and those which are concrete use steel brush.

Vacuuming is one of many activities that cannot be ignored. This helps to remove dirt and debris that are trapped inside the water. Vacuuming is done on the filter to remove dirt trapped there and also above the ground. Pool is also vacuumed to avoid dirt falling inside the water.

Checking water circulation is very important. This includes regular checking of the pump, the water temperature, drains and filters. Treating water with chemicals is also important as this should be done as directed by the manufacturer. Testing the contents and adding chemicals will help in getting rid of bacteria, dirt, algae and many organic matters inside the man made dam.

Water chemistry is also important too. The content should not be more acidic or more alkaline but should be neutral. Muriatic acid is used to adjust the poll contents when above normal while soda ash may be used to neutralize when water is below normal.

Shocking is another activity that people fail to understand when it is appropriate to be done. Shocking depends on the temperature, humidity and sunlight. Also there is the question of how many people uses the pool at once. So the hotter the climate the higher the water temperature and hence higher bathe load thus more shocking is recommended.

Filters should be checked at least every day. This will make sure any leaves and debris trapped is removed more often to make sure there is no room for bacteria multiplication. So swimming pool maintenance services should be done regularly to make it easier and less tiresome.
