WHY IS MY POOL WATER CLOUDY?
Cloudy pool water can be caused by inadequate water circulation, chemical imbalance, poor filtration, low sanitizer levels or lack of oxidation. Whether it’s a broken pool pump impeller or a cracked filter grid, we will diagnose the problem and fix it, leading to clear water in one to five days.
HOW DID I GET ALGAE?
Algae damages pool filters, the pool surface and threatens swimmers’ health. Take care of it right away! Several things can lead to algae growth: Stabilizer levels that render the chlorine ineffective, sunshine that burns off the chlorine or clogged filters that reduce circulation. Our technicians are expert in diagnosing the problem and prescribing an algae fix quickly.
CAN I EXPERIMENT WITH CHEMICALS TO GET THE WATER QUALITY I WANT?
NEVER experiment! Improper measuring and mixing of chemicals – whether diluted or concentrated – can create both unwanted reactions and potential health hazards. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions with special attention to safety gear, clean up and storage. To be safe and for the best results, hire a professional.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BACKWASH?
The pool filter must be backwashed when the pool filter pressure is ten pounds higher than the clean set pressure, which is usually once a month, though it can be needed more often. The Aquaman Pool Service weekly cleaning pool service maintenance plan includes backwashing the filter as needed.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY CARTRIDGE OR DE FILTER?
Manufacturers recommend that the cartridge filters be dissembled and cleaned three to four times per year. DE filters should be disassembled and cleaned at least once per year, although we find that pool owners have a better experience when it’s done twice per year.
DO I NEED TO MAINTAIN MY POOL IN THE WINTER?
Here in the Metroplex, our weather is unpredictable, which means swimming pools should be maintained year-round. Warm winter temperatures can cause algae growth and there’s a dramatic “leaf drop” from August to January, and then again starting in March, causing a lot of debris in your swimming pool. Our affordable pool maintenance plans make it easy to keep your pool beautiful in all seasons.
