Manufacturers recommend weekly cleaning to keep your pool water clear and to maintain your pool balance. We can work with you to come up with a schedule that best fits your lifestyle, whether you opt for this regular cleaning or for more periodic appointments.
If you opt for our recommended weekly cleaning schedule, an ABC pool technician will visit your property on the same day each week to perform your service. On rare occasions, we may need to reschedule, including in the event of severe weather or during holiday weeks. In those cases, we will reach out to you well in advance to let you know about upcoming schedule changes.
We understand that your schedule may change over time, and so we will do our best to accommodate our customers’ requests to clean your pool on a different day. Please contact our Customer Service Department to make your request or simply ask your ABC technician when he is at your home.
The last thing a pool owner wants to see is an unsightly white line along the side of your pool at the water line. In most cases, white residue indicates that your pool’s calcium levels are high. There are a few ways you can solve this problem, but the first thing you will want to try is to add a water softener to lower your total water hardness.
When your sand or Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filter’s pressure gauge reaches 8-10psi more than the start-up pressure, you’ll want to backwash the filter to remove dirt and debris. You may also consider backwashing your filter after you clean your pool after a big storm, when you notice an algae bloom in your pool or when you are trying to address cloudy pool water. For Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filters, you’ll need to add new DE powder to the filter through the skimmer after each time your backwash.
The clarity of your pool water is based on three factors: physical, chemical and biological. Cloudy or green water may indicate that your filters are dirty or defective, your water isn’t circulating properly, your pool chemistry is out of balance or that you have a buildup of algae.
Although your pool pump won’t likely be completely silent, louder than normal noises can indicate a problem. If your pump suddenly becomes noisier, you may hear a knocking sound, which can indicate higher pressure than normal. This situation, called cavitation, can damage your pump over time. Suction leaks or bad motor bearings may be to blame. ABC’s skilled pool techs can diagnose any underlying problems and suggest a course of action.
Our customers trust us with any problem they are having with their pools, whether the issue is related to the pump motor, filtration system, lighting, automation system or with leaks. Trust the experienced staff at ABC to quickly diagnose your problem and suggest a solution, so that you can get back to enjoying your pool.
Typically, you should run your pump about 8 to 10 hours during the summer months, when you are using your pool more often, and just four to six hours during the winter. As with many other parts of your pool’s mechanics, however, the amount of time you should run your pump depends on several different factors. The best way to get recommendations on how long to run your pump is to ask your pool technician to take a look at your pool and the specific equipment you have.
