Ongoing maintenance

Consider a regular maintenance program as insurance to protect the life of your pool and equipment.

A regular maintenance program can provide many benefits to a new pool owner, especially the ability to understand your pool and how it reacts in different circumstances.

1. Prevention

Regular check-ups or visits allow the pool shop and service department to come to you. This is usually done on a monthly basis, but can be as frequent as fortnightly and weekly during the peak swimming season.

Generally, it is organised as required to achieve the best possible performance for your pool water quality and equipment function.

Make sure the Pool Service technician that performs your regular maintenance understand the equipment installed on your pool.

Filtration equipment performance and new finish protection can be enhanced with regular check-ups to correct faults before expensive replacement is required.

2. Healthy, Long Life for your pool

Correct water balance and TDS levels are required to maintain healthy water, sanitiser performance and equipment protection. Many new rendered pool interior finishes require strict chemical level control to ensure the maximum life expectancy and good looks are retained.

The correct system to suit your lifestyle and environment of your pool can be crucial to enjoying an easy to maintain pool all year round. There are more alternatives on the market today than ever before for sanitising and managing your pool so take the time to research and work out what is going to be not only the healthiest option but also the easiest to maintain and is going to protect the longevity of your investment. Quite often a swimming pool will be the second largest investment a family makes outside of the family home itself.

Your maintenance visits can be tailored to the use of the pool and spa. You may choose to increase visits during the swimming season to achieve maximum use, but still, maintain regular visits during the offseason when neglect can cause unseen equipment and interior pool surface damage.

3. Always Ready

Your new swimming pool is an entertainment area; your family and friends deserve to have a healthy and safe environment to enjoy for the maximum time weather conditions allow.

Your pool should be kept in top condition so that it is always ready when the hot weather hits or a special pool party is arranged.

The best advice on heating your pool is readily available to save time and money, but most importantly to get the most use from your pool and spa.

Pool systems are becoming more sophisticated with automatic control units, heating systems, and filtration and dosing systems installed. Regular check-ups ensure that the chance of breakdown is dramatically reduced. However, if something does fail, attention is usually very quick, as your trained pool professional is intimately acquainted with your system’s operation and is dedicated to returning the pool back to full operation.

Some owners choose to turn their pool system off during the winter months and let the pool turn green and then treat the pool as the weather warms up. This is not a good idea and typically will cost more in the long run with pool chemicals or draining and refilling the pool with water. Not to mention the effect this treatment has on the environment and pool surrounds. We would always recommend running your pool 365 days a year, but in particular, with an ionised pool system, you can reduce running times and costs by more than 50% during the winter months while still retaining a crystal clear, healthy pool.
