With summer quickly approaching, you’re probably excited about taking advantage of the hot weather by enjoying one of your favorite outdoor activities: swimming! There’s nothing like a dip in the pool for exercise, relaxation, or just a bit of fun. But like your home and yard, your swimming pool needs to be cared for and maintained. Hiring a professional for weekly pool maintenance not only saves you time, but provides a host of other benefits.
An occasion June bug landing on the surface is easily removed and not a cause for concern. But pools can become infested with harmful insects or pests if not kept under control. Without the proper chemicals or a correctly functioning pump, insects such as the backswimmer and water boatman can multiply, as well as mosquitoes. The backswimmer gives a nasty bite, and mosquitoes not only make life miserable but can carry disease.
It goes without saying that you want your pool to be clean, but when it comes to the water it’s more than a matter of appearance. A variety of dangerous bacteria can lurk in swimming pools and can lead to health risks if left untreated. It’s possible to contract Recreational Water Illnesses from unsanitary or improperly prepared water. Professional, weekly pool maintenance ensures harmful germs are eradicated.
Water Treatment and Chemical Safety
Chemicals such as chlorine or bromine are necessary to treat your pool’s water, but without proper handling and storage they carry their own risks. Adding the incorrect balance of chemicals can damage the pool, as well as irritating your skin and eyes.
