Your pool is an investment.
Just like other big purchases in your life, like a house or car, your pool requires maintenance to ensure that it works properly.
In the same way that you have your gutters cleaned to prevent unnecessary damage to your home, or get the brakes serviced on your car, owning a pool requires regular maintenance and upkeep.
One of the most important factors of pool maintenance is keeping your water chemistry properly balanced. When your water is not balanced, a number of issues can arise including damage to your pool equipment and handrails, irritation to your skin and eyes while swimming, reducing the life of your pool liner and more.
Over time, a lack of maintenance can cause you to spend more money than would otherwise be needed to replace parts.
We understand that it can be tempting to have a do-it-yourself mindset when it comes to pool maintenance. It often seems easier to make your best guess and buy pool chemicals online than it is to come into a store to talk with a professional.
However, to go back to the car example above, in general, people go to a professional to get their brakes replaced, because trying to do that yourself could lead to damage to your car.
You should think of your pool’s maintenance the same way. While there are certain things you can do yourself, we always recommend working with a professional to extend the life of your pool.
