The most vital part of pool maintenance is checking and balancing chemicals. All ASP technicians receive training on how to determine chemical levels in your pool including chlorine, cyanauric acid, alkalinity, pH level among others. After chemical evaluation, your ASP technician will determine which chemicals are to be added to your pool to achieve the proper water chemistry levels on a week by week basis. The use, comfort and appearance of your pool will be enhanced by proper evaluation and balancing of chemicals.
The pH level of any liquid solution, including the water in your swimming pool is a measurement of how acidic or “basic” the water is. The pH level can range between 6.6 and 8.4. If the water in your swimming pool is more acidic the pH level will be lower in the pH range. If the water in your swimming pool is more basic, the pH level will be higher in pH range. In order to have a balanced or neutral pH level, the pH level in your swimming pool should be between 7.4 and 7.6. The water in your swimming pool is naturally attempting to reach a neutral pH level. If the pH level is less than 7.4, the water in your swimming pool is considered to be acidic or “hungry” and will attempt to raise the pH level to the neutral range by seeking elements to mix with itself through corrosion of pool materials which can resultant in serious pool damage. If the pH level is greater than 7.6, the water in your swimming pool is considered to be basic or “over saturated” and will attempt to lower the pH level to the neutral range by depositing elements from the water resulting in the buildup of scale and other harmful mineral build up in your pool system.
Total alkalinity is a measurement of the alkaline materials in your swimming pool water and is related to the pH level of the water. Alkaline materials provide a buffer between acidic water and corrosion of your pool. Low alkaline levels will cause the pH level of the swimming pool water to constantly and rapidly fluctuate. High alkaline levels will affect the clarity of the water resulting in cloudy water. Avoiding rapid and constant changes to pH levels and avoiding cloudy water requires that a balanced total alkalinity level be maintained.
Calcium hardness is a measurement of how much calcium exists in your swimming pool water. When calcium hardness is too low, the water in your swimming pool will seek to obtain calcium from any materials that are present resulting in damage to the pool tiles and plaster finish. High calcium hardness also results in cloudy water. As with the water’s pH level and total alkalinity level, calcium hardness also needs to be balanced.
Cleaning the Pool
On a weekly basis, your ASP technician will clean your pool. Pool cleaning consists of removing any debris or other materials that should not be present in the pool. Larger debris will be removed from the pool using a LeafMaster, as required. The top of the pool will be swept and cleared of any surface debris. Scrubbing the surface tiles will result in the removal of built-up of algae and other grime.
Proper Filtration & Water Flow
The proper flow of water throughout the swimming pool is likely the most important aspect of your swimming pool’s operation. The swimming pool pump filter acts as the “heart” of the pool, similar to the heart in the human body. The filtration system pumps and filters water containing all required balanced chemicals throughout the swimming pool water system as well as throughout all the pool pipes. On a weekly basis, your ASP technician ensures that the filtration system is operating at optimum performance. All pipes and valves are inspected to determine that adequate water is flowing throughout your pool system. Inadequate water flow can result in the immediate development of algae, corrosion, calcium build-up, and other issues resulting in a swimming pool in “poor health.”
Consider a Salt Water System
Swimming pools using a salt chlorinated system generally require less maintenance than pools using a traditional chlorine system. Although not as common as pools using traditional chlorine systems, pools using salt water systems take care of chlorination for you and may be an attractive alternative for your pool. Salt water systems convert salt to chlorine for use in the pool which is then converted back to salt where the process begins again. The constant process of converting salt to chlorine and chlorine back to salt generally provides a more stable level of chlorine in the water than is provided by traditional chlorine methods. Salt water systems require less time for balancing chemicals and have been proven to be less harmful to the skin, eyes, and hair.
