Pool Service Seasons
Summer- The summer season is prime time for Simi Valley pool service cleaners. This time of year we are on our A game! We are the busiest around this time due to everyone using their pool. Pools burn through chemicals very quick in the summer do to the sun burning them out and people contaminating the pool quicker. However, pools tend to stay cleaner in the Summer due to the steady good weather in Simi Valley.
Fall- During the Fall pool season pool techs have a lot of work to do. As it is still usually warm in Simi Valley chemicals still burn out rapidly. On top of possible algae blooms the pools get extremely dirty since all the trees and plants start losing their leafs. The combination of these two are deadly for big algae blooms
Winter– Now that the weather has cooled down pools no longer demand high amounts of chemicals to remain algae free. However, in the winter the pools get very dirty due to the drastic weather changes. Because of this it takes much longer for them to be cleaned.
Spring- Spring can vary. As temperatures rise chemicals will need to be added more frequently again. Pools can either stay clean or remain very dirty depending on the weather conditions in the area.
Why should I hire a Simi Valley pool service?
Maintaining your pool- It is very important to keep your chemicals balanced. Along with chemically balanced water levels you need to remove debris from your pool every week. If your pool remains dirty for extended amounts of time it can cause very expensive and larger problems down the road.
The short term effect of pools with a lot of debris is algae. Debris and plants in your pool decay and emit phosphates that promote algae growth. Hiring a pool cleaner will help ensure that you don’t have any problems with algae as well as pump failure. Another plus of hiring a pool guy is that your pool will always look presentable and clean. The pool is usually the first place guest look when they are in your backyard.
ARE SALT CHLORINATING POOLS BETTER?
If your like most people you’ve probably wondered what all the hype about salt water pools is all about. Are they really better on your skin? Do they do a better job chlorinating your pool? Are they expensive? How long do they last? Well you are about to find out.
Salt chlorinating pools usually don’t need weekly adjustments to their chlorine levels since the salt system monitors them. However, most systems tend to start to fail prematurely and chlorine needs to be added occasionally. Salt generators have about a 7 year life span depending on how well the water is balanced and how well the system is cleaned. Salt cells should be cleaned every 90 days about. Cleaning can be done by your pool tech. To clean a salt cell you need to add a mixture of water and acid to it. Once you add the water and acid to it your let it sit for about 15 minutes so that the acid eats the build-up away. The extra build up can be picked out with a fine tooth pick or other instrument.
All in all, it just depends on your personal preference, but simi valley pool service can do it all. If you don’t want a floater in your pool, I would suggest you make the change to a salt water pool which simi valley pool service can easily do for you. Or if you have sensitive skin and need a little more tolerable chemical level I would also recommend you install a salt system in your pool. But if you want to save money on your pool service and build cost I would opt out of a salt water pool. Traditional chlorine tablets do a great job chlorinating pools with a smaller up front cost. At the end of the day however, it just depends on your personal preference.
