The swimming pool service contractors from A Best Pool Service in Menifee, California get asked the question all the time, “why should you hire a pool service contractor?” There are myriad reasons including the fact that if you have limited free time, you may want to spend that time in the pool rather than cleaning and maintaining the chemical balances. Other reasons to hire a swimming pool service professional is that you may find it costs you less money to hire a pool contractor than it is to undertake the pool cleaning and maintenance on your own. If you’re going to do it yourself, you will need to invest in all of the pool chemicals and you will need to have a place to store them that children and pets cannot access.

Maintaining the chemistry of your swimming pool is crucial to keeping the water crystal clear and bacteria-free. It is also necessary to assure the pool equipment is kept in peak operating condition. Out of balance pool chemicals can lead to corrosion of equipment, staining of the pool walls and floors and other issues.

Why should you hire a pool service contractor?

When you hire a swimming pool service contractor, you will want to do your research and hire a contractor who is experienced, knowledgeable and who is responsive to your questions and concerns. The ideal swimming pool contractor will know how to keep the water clean and free of bacteria and will also understand the nuances of your swimming pool equipment. He will check the equipment while he pays a service visit and can let you know whether there are any potential issues with the pool equipment.

Your pool service contractor will:

  • Check and balance pool chemicals
  • Shock the pool when needed
  • Skim off any debris and remove fallen debris from the bottom of the pool. Hint: using a pool cover will make this task easier
  • Clean skimmer baskets
  • Brush the walls, floor and behind any pool steps or accessories
  • Backwash the filter when needed. Note: this requires a lot of water so it is only done when needed
  • Give the pool deck a light cleaning
  • Inspect and clean pool equipment
  • Equipment repairs and replacement
  • Resurfacing the pool deck
  • Plumbing inspection and repair

The items mentioned above are those that are done on a regular or semi-regular basis. Replacing pool equipment and having to resurface the deck is not a frequent occurence.

When he pays a service visit he will look for any leaking areas and will let you know whether the leak can be easily addressed or whether it will require a major project — like a pool liner replacement. Working with a pool contractor will also make it easier to get your pool repaired if there is an emergency and you will also have access to a professional when it comes time to open and/or close the swimming pool for the season.
