Why Leave Pool Cleaning to the Pros
If you have a backyard inground swimming pool, it can be tempting to tackle the maintenance on your own. After all, owning a swimming pool comes at a cost, and every extra dollar counts.
Those costs include the chemicals needed to keep the pool water crystal clear to the electricity needed to keep the pumps running. Given those ongoing expenses, it is perfectly understandable that so many pool owners take a DIY approach to maintenance. Even so, there are many reasons to leave pool cleaning to the pros.
Here are nine arguments against the DIY approach and in favor of the pros.
1. DIY Methods May Not Apply Pool Chemicals Correctly
Pool chemical balance is of utmost importance. Chlorine, Ph, alkalinity and other chemicals work together to keep the pool’s water crystal clear, healthy and safe for all swimmers. The proper levels of each must be maintained for all the chemicals to work together efficiently.
In addition, to creating pool water that is unsafe to swim in, you can end up spending much more on unnecessary chemicals when trying to get it right.
2. Getting It Wrong Puts Swimmers at a Health Risk
As mentioned, adding the right chemicals and maintaining the right balance are always vital. Done wrong promotes the growth and harboring of harmful microorganisms, such as algae growth. If you have had a pool with algae, you know how it can be extremely challenging to get rid of.
4. Extend Pool Filters Lifespan
For those with pools, we know the cost of replacement filters. Knowing the ins and outs of filters will lengthen their life, so in the long run, hiring a professional can save you money.
In addition, when it gets dirty and old, a professional can clean it properly, saving you from purchasing new.
5. Doing It Yourself Can Be Frustrating and Time-Consuming
Many of us have full-time jobs, are taking care of families, and, simply put, have very hectic schedules. Trying to squeeze in a DIY pool cleaning can add unwanted stress on the weekend when you want to unwind and relax.
Yes, hiring a professional to maintain your pool does come at a cost, but it can undoubtedly relieve your stress and let you spend that time doing something you like much better.
6. Customized Services
Many professional pool maintenance companies can work around your busy schedule. Are you having a big party on Saturday and need your pool to look and feel amazing quickly? Are you going on vacation and need someone to maintain your pool while you are gone so you can enjoy it immediately when you return? Or do you want weekly, bi-weekly and other individualized maintenance services?

9. Extend the Life of Pool Equipment & Pool Components
Let’s face it; the pool equipment is the heart and soul of the pool. Without it, crystal clear, beautiful water is just not going to happen. But do you know how vital it is to maintain it with the utmost care?
Caring for your pool equipment and components is critical to keep them working efficiently and extend their lifespan. Inefficiency creates cloudy water and undoubtedly increases its wear.
Proper pool equipment maintenance will save you lots of money in the long run. Even when a repair is needed, it will likely be much less costly than purchasing new pool equipment and components.
10. Focus on Yourself
Do you use your pool for relaxation with a book in hand after a long day at work or a coffee poolside in the early morning? Are you into physical fitness and use your pool for aerobics and various fitness activities? How about entertaining? Are you a lover of parties poolside?
