Keeping a pool clean can be tedious at times, which is why Phoenix Services, LLC is here to help! There are many factors to keeping a pool clean. This includes making sure the chlorine is correctly added to the water, brushing the pool walls and floor to avoid algae build-up, emptying the skimmer basket, making sure the pump is working properly, pH balance, etc.
Chlorine is one of the main factors to keeping a pool clean. Chlorine kills most of the bacteria and algae. When you see green pools, they’re infested with algae and bacteria. Most of the time, the pools turn green because they don’t have chlorine or they aren’t putting enough chlorine in them. A cloudy pool means there is too much or too little chlorine in the water.
Another factor in keeping pools clean is having proper pH balance. This balance is important to ensure that the chlorine stays active and that all of your equipment and the pool finish stays intact. The average pH in a pool should stay between 7.2 and 7.8. If the balance falls below 7, then it would be too acidic and this can cause damage to your equipment. The average pH balance that you should try to maintain is about 7.4.
These are just a few factors that go into keeping a pool clean. Trying to keep up with a pool can sometimes be a hassle. Keep in mind that a pool requires a lot of maintenance to remain clean and avoid any algae build-up. To make matter easy for you, we can take care of all of this for you.
