Living in the sunshine state means pools are everywhere, from community pools to personal pools. And while they are a lot of fun, a part of us all thinks it’s to combat the intense heat we get every summer. There truly is nothing like jumping into a nice, cold pool after being outside in the 90-degree weather. However, no pool is complete without some maintenance. Trust us, the last thing you want to do is jump into a weird colored pool that’s filled with leaves and bugs. The only way to ensure your pool is summer-ready at all times is to get weekly pool maintenance done. We know the word weekly sounds a little excessive, but what many people do not know is that pool maintenance is as much for the pool’s appearance as it is for the safety of it. If you haven’t heard of how unsafe an unkempt pool is then consider yourself lucky because you probably have only been to pools that get weekly maintenance done. But pools do get extremely infested with germs and bacteria when not properly maintained. The one way to combat this is to contact your local pool cleaning service in Bonita Springs, FL such as SWFL Pool Solutions. This way you can enjoy soaking up the summer sun in a nice cold and clean pool.
People tend to only care about appearance in some situations such as their home, cars, and themselves; however, neglecting the backyard, specifically the pool, directly reflects on your home’s appearance. There is nothing worse than wanting to jump into the pool but seeing bugs and leaves floating around in it. While seeing a few here and there is inevitable, having a whole pool filled with debris is enough to make you question jumping in. This is especially embarrassing is you have some friends or family over to use your pool. To avoid this situation the best thing to do is have an SWFL Pool Solutions representative come on out to your pool and do routine maintenance. This way you can enjoy a summer filled with barbeques and pool fun without the embarrassment of a dirty pool.
Something we all have failed to consider at some point is that a poorly maintained pool isn’t all about what it looks like. A pool can also directly impact your health through the spread of bacteria and germs. A common myth is that chlorine can kill all human germs; however, this is not entirely true. And even if this was true, not all pools are made up of only chlorine. The best way to combat any bacteria coming from humans, debris, pets, and insects are to have the pool maintained. This way you know the PH levels are correct and that the water you are about to dive into is safe.
Prevents Future Damage
Like anything else in life letting damage go too far can cause further damage. This is why it’s so important to always take care of everything, no matter how big, small, cheap, or expensive it is. You may think a pool is just a pool and that there’s no way it can do any damage, but pools can do quite a lot of damage when not maintained properly. Over a period where the pool water is not maintained the water can become corrosive and damage any items you have in the pool and the pool itself. This can end up putting a huge burden on your wallet. While it may seem expensive to put money up every week for pool maintenance it can save you so much in the long term.
When it comes to having a pool the best thing to do for the sake of your health and house is to have it regularly maintained. Even if you do not use your pool often, making sure it is cleaned and maintained can prevent any further damage from happening to it. Now that summer is here make sure your pool is up to your standards. Don’t let your pools lack of maintenance be the reason you don’t have a fun summer.
