Pool Maintenance Cleaners - Should you Hire a Pool Cleaner?


It's possible to care for your pool yourself. The chemicals and tools are available in local pool supply shops or through the Internet. However, if you are like most of us, you have enough work, home and family chores already. A pool that doesn't get regular attention can deteriorate quickly. The best solution is to hire a pool professional and contract for regular pool maintenance. Make sure to agree on exactly what services and materials are included in the service contract. Ordinary chemical balancing is usually included in your monthly pool service fee, but you may have to pay small extra amounts for special cleaning or twice yearly treatments with special chemicals.

The pool specialist will come to your home on a regular, usually weekly, basis and test, brush and chemically balance your pool. Pumps, filters and other equipment is monitored regularly and kept in good condition.
