Pool Perfection

October 18, 2019


Do you know the sound of worn bearings in your pool? Do you recognise the signs of electrical faults on your pool equipment or the beginning of staining on the surfaces of the pool? It’s important that pool owners ensure they have healthy water and look at the longevity of their pool, but most of us don’t.

Like your car, your pool should be maintained on a regular basis by someone who is an expert in their field. Professional pool specialists, like those at Allan’s Pool Shop, are worth their weight in gold when it comes to keeping your pool in tip-top shape. Here’s why:

Regular inspection

One of the best benefits of having a professional on hand is the fact that they will be monitoring your pool and its equipment frequently. This gives them the ability to identify problems such as pool staining and cracking and recognise a problem if the pump or filter are making an unusual noise. They can detect leaks in their early stages and fix the faults before they become a major problem.

Expert advice

Pool experts will not only keep your swimming pool sparkling clean and in good running order, they will also give you advice on how to maintain it in between inspections, offer tips on equipment and general maintenance suggestions. The pros at Allan’s also keep thorough cloud-based records on the pools they service, which gives homeowners a complete profile of the pool and a history of all the maintenance performed.

Maintaining your pool’s value

As your pool is a big investment, it should always be kept clean and in pristine working order and should be regularly monitored by an expert. Keeping it in top shape, and having the records to show its service history, are also assets if you put your home on the market.

Chemical knowledge

There’s an art to pool chemistry, which is why it’s best left in the hands of the experts. Experienced professionals know exactly how much and what type of chemicals your pool needs. Adding too much or not enough of a certain chemical not only compromises the health of the water, it also ends up costing money to correct.

Saves money

Having an expert overseeing your pool’s maintenance actually saves you money in the long run. Because they are skilled at recognising problems before they become a major issue, they can help you extend the life of your pool. Specialists, like those at Allan’s Pool Shop, have inside knowledge on money-saving ideas, such as extending the life of cartridge filters by giving them an annual acid wash and controlling calcium spotting to avoid the expense of repairing the damage later on.
