With the weather now getting warmer and the days getting longer it’s time to think about opening up your swimming pool, have you looked and seen you have a green swimming pool. Don’t despair you can get the pool back to it’s former glory with some hard work and the right chemical balance.
There are a number of steps you can take yourself or why not get us here at Pooltec Maintenance to do the hard work for you.?
Firstly the pool must have enough water in it to enable it to be hoovered to waste, this will be required as once you have disturbed all the dead leaves, algea and anything else that has got into the water you don’t want it all returning into the pool.
Reconect all your pumps,filters and heater which would probably have been drained down for your winter close down. Make sure the skimmers are free of obstructions and blockages.
Start up the swimming pool filter pump and make sure the filter has water in it. Brush the side walls down and then begin hoovering to waste.
Once you are satisfied you have the majority of dirt and rubbish from the pool you can set the multiport valve from waste to filter.
You now need to check your chemical balance to see what adjustments need to be carried out.
Very often the PH is high and there will be little or no sanitiser in the water as you have a green swimming pool.
Shock dose the pool and reduce the PH level to between 7.2 and 7.4, remeber Chlorine works more effectively with the PH on the lower side of 7.4.
It is also important that the Alkalinity is in the required parameters, as to high and the PH will be difficult to adjust and to low the PH again will be difficult to maintain within the correct range.
Here at Pooltec Maintenance we have the very latest diagnostic equipment to enable accurate reading of the chemical levels within the pool water. We will carry out a full Langelier test to see if the water is balanced correctly.
We will carry out a full service including, the reconection of your plant,cleaning the pool, storing your winter cover and fitting your summer cover. We are able to supply all the chemiclas you need and put the necesary amounts into the pool to balance your water.
