Pool Service Scripps Ranch And What It Requires
Pool service in Scripps Ranch has some very specific issues that our pool cleaning technicians contend with. Seeing that Scripps Ranch was developed around an old eucalyptus farm, the area still has thousands of these trees. And with the eucalyptus trees comes a unique set of issues for swimming pools. This problem does not count for the entire area of Scripps Ranch though it is still a large area of old Scripps Ranch. This type of tree grows very tall and has a few issues that make it a burden for pool owners. The trees leaves are very oily which allows them to have a lot of dirt to stick to them. Once they enter the swimming pool, it is very common for the leaf to cause a temporary organic stain. Organic stains are usually not permanent unless the leaves stay on the pools surfaces for to long. The eucalyptus is also a leaf that does not breakdown very fast so it becomes very difficult for the pools vacuum to pick them up.
For the other areas of Scripps Ranch the tree problems are not nearly as much of an issue. North Scripps Ranch communities like Stonebridge and the Scripps poway Parkway area have few if any eucalyptus trees. This area is also a much newer community which also has newer built swimming pools. These swimming pools come in all shapes and sizes as the backyards in this area vary in size. There are large backyards and much smaller backyards where homeowners build their families swimming pool. A large percentage of these swimming pools are also built with higher end finishes. Materials consisting of pebble pool finishes, glass and natural stone tile, and natural stone coping. When it comes to pool service in Scripps Ranch, each pool has it’s own unique set of requirements. Our technicians make sure to clean your pool and keep an eye on your surroundings to ensure you get the best swimming experience each and every week.
What We Provide To Our Scripps Ranch Pool Cleaning Customers
Our pool cleaning technicians are trained to follow a list of procedures every pool service visit. When we are out cleaning your swimming pool we follow the steps listed below. This ensures that your Scripps Ranch swimming pool is cleaned the same way every visit. You should expect to see a pool and spa that is free of any dirt and debris along with knowing that the water chemistry is balanced correctly. As we always say ” Anyone can clean a swimming pool but the waters chemistry protects your family and your large financial investment”. If your water chemistry is out of balance, your pool service technician can be causing problems. These problems consist of damaging your pool equipment along with possibly staining or breaking down your pools plaster or pebble pool finish. We always stress to customers that proper water chemistry means everything when deciding on the pool service company you hire. If they are not doing the job correctly, they are likely costing you money in the long run by damaging your pool and equipment.
Below we will explain the steps we take to ensure your pool is safe and clean every pool service visit.
Step One: Cleaning The Pool Tile
When cleaning the pool tile first, it allows us to remove the debris stuck onto the pool tiles. By cleaning the pool tile it also allows us to remove any loose dirt and debris along with any oily build up. Removing the oily build up ensures that the pool tile will be clean and not continue to get more dingy and dull. During weekly pool cleaning, we are not cleaning the tile to remove calcium build up as that is a specialty service. Also calcium on pool tile is normally caused by bad water chemistry or that the tiles are very old and damaged. If your seeing white build up on your tile, you should check that your pool service company are doing their water chemistry correctly.
Step Two: Netting Your Swimming Pools Surfaces
Netting your pool surfaces allows us to remove any of the floating debris and leaves.This is necessary to perform at the beginning of the pool service visit so that the debris does not go into saturation. Saturation is when the debris falls into the middle of the water where it is very hard to net or to vacuum out. By netting we are getting the majority of the surface debris out of the water so when we vacuum, the pool is clean and aesthetically pleasing.
Step Three: Vacuuming The Entire Pool And Spa Surface
If you have had various pool service companies before then you know, not always are they vacuuming the floor of the pool. Vacuuming the surfaces should be performed every pool service visit to ensure that everything is cleaned out of the pool. Without vacuuming the surfaces, there is no way for your pool to be cleaned to the best of it’s ability. When our pool cleaning technicians are performing the cleaning, we always make sure to vacuum everything and not just go through the motions. Ensuring that the floor of the pool is clean lets our customers know that the cleaning was performed correctly and makes the pool look nice. Some pool service companies only rely on the in pool vacuum which can not vacuum the steps and benches let alone the inside of a hot tub.
Step Four: Check And Balance The Pool Water Chemistry
As sated before,this is the most important part of the pool cleaning process. When you hire a Scripps Ranch pool service company, make sure they understand and have knowledge of pool water chemistry. If not, they are likely damaging your swimming pool. With our water chemistry testing, we check your chlorine, pH, and alkalinity every week. On top of that, we also check your conditioner levels (Cyanuric acid), and your phosphates at least monthly if not more. This allows us to make sure that your pool water is safe for your family and is protecting your financial investment.
What Else Our Scripps Ranch Pool Service Offers
Empty The Pool Pump And Skimmer Baskets
Each time we clean your swimming pool, we also make sure to empty the pump and skimmer baskets. This is where all of the leaves get collected and it is important to get them out of the pool and equipment. By not cleaning your baskets, the leaves start to break down causing phosphate levels to rise. Phosphates are a food source for algae and is never good to have phosphates in your pool water. By removing the leaves, it also allows your swimming pool to achieve the proper flow rate so that the pool does not start to grow algae.
Final Steps Taken During Our Weekly Cleaning Visit
The last step that we take is to check that there are no leaks or pool equipment issues. If we see any pool equipment repairs that are necessary, we always get in touch with our customers. This way, we can ensure the pool is always working the way it should. When pool equipment fails, we are also able to perform any pool equipment installation that is required. Over time, pool equipment will need to be repaired or replaced and we are a licensed contractor that can handle all of it.
We also take care of any preventative maintenance such as your routine pool filter cleans that should be done three to four times per year. This service keeps the pool working correctly and prevents any premature replacement of parts. If you need a quality Scripps Ranch pool service company, look no further!
