Let us service your clean and healthy swimming pool

Your busy lifestyle means that your time has become a precious commodity. As a result, the Pump and Pool People now provide home pool servicing to save you time and effort. Let the experts help to maintain a clean and healthy swimming pool for your family and friends to enjoy.

A clean and clear swimming pool starts with a good pool filtration system and then requires regular pool cleaning throughout the year. Should your pool filtration system or pool cleaners require any maintenance or repairs, contact us today so your pool can stay in amazing shape all year round.

Additionally, we offer regular pool servicing which means that we take on full responsibility for the maintenance and care of your pool. You can choose to have our technician visit weekly, fortnightly or, monthly.

Helping you service a clean and clear swimming pool

It’s necessary to keep the water clear and clean with pool water testing. A water test will determine the:

  • amount of chlorine present
  • the PH level

If the findings of the test are inadequate, we can check whether or not your pool cleaners, pump, and filtration system are working properly. To ensure your pool is safe, let the experts at Pump and Pool People take a look at your pool. This way you can avoid having to replace the pool water during the year or increase the use of chemicals to restore water clarity.

The average swimming pool holds 22,000 to 60,000 litres of water. This requires at least 8 to 10 hours a day running a filtration system during the summer months.

Our pool servicing technicians are fully trained and experienced in all areas of pool care.

Jobs that are performed on every regular pool maintenance service visit include:

  • Brush down steps and other areas of potential algae growth
  • Vacuum pool
  • Backwash sand/DE filter or hose down cartridge filter
  • Water testing
  • Add required chemicals
  • Check pump, filter and chlorinator
  • Empty pump and skimmer baskets

As an owner of a sparkling pool, you want it to stay that way. Another important way to keep algae at bay is to vacuum. Removing debris such as leaves, and other foliage keeps your pool not only healthier but looking impressive! The Pump and Pool People will always be on hand to vacuum in its entirety, to the best standard.

To keep a sanitary pool, filters are paramount. They are designed to remove all sorts of unwelcome debris and dirt. Impure water rushes into the filter and returns into the pool, cleansed, and purified. Pool servicing is important as cleaning these filters is not only time consuming but tricky! Let the Pump and Pool People do the professional work for you.

As you may already know, it is surprising what you can find in a skimmer basket! These are an integral part of your pool system that allows surface water to be sucked back through into the filter. You can be left with all sorts of leaves and debris; therefore, it is important to have these removed so your skimmer basket does not overflow.

It is extremely important to keep your pool sanitized. If you don’t keep your pool clean, you are certainly welcoming yourself and your guests to become ill! By adding chemicals such as chlorine, you are eliminating germs, therefore, preventing algae from forming and turning your pool green.

More importantly, by keeping your pool clean in this way, you are protecting the health of your swimmers! Trust the Pump and Pool People to keep your pool gleaming.

As Pump and Pool People, we know that testing your water is key to cleanliness and prevention of an algae outbreak. Firstly, we test your water to ascertain the pH level and alkalinity. A high pH level could result in cloudy water, scaling on your pool appliances and even skin rashes! Too much alkaline will be detrimental too, causing your chlorine to be less effective, therefore a much higher chance for germs to flourish.

Secondly, we test the chlorine level in the pool. This is the chemical that keeps your water in great shape, sterilising the germs and keeping you healthy. The Pump and Pool People make sure that the amount of chlorine in your pool is at the optimum amount to retain that glistening look.

The facts about algae

Algae is the name of an aquatic organism that uses photosynthesis, much like most plants. Interestingly, their size can range from microscopic to massive kelps, spanning up to 60 meters in length. Algae can survive in a range of different places such as on trees, rocks, and damp soil, however, most algae thrive in freshwater lakes, oceans and even ponds.

Some algae are perfectly harmless and are an important part of our ecosystem. They form a crucial food source for frogs and aquatic life such as fish and small pond-based insects. In addition, they can also absorb CO2, helping to promote clean air. Nevertheless, it is not all good news.

The harmful effects of algae

Certain types of algae, predominantly ‘blue-green algae’ or ‘black algae’ can pose a dangerous threat to all forms of life e.g. animals or humans. Encountering blue-green algae can cause skin irritation, flu-like symptoms, and gastrointestinal illnesses. To make things worse, severe cases of close contact or consumption of algae has been known to cause liver failure, respiratory problems, seizures and even death. Although these symptoms are rare, it shows the severity of what is possible from exposure.

This form of algae can grow in swimming pools and the ramifications can be a lot worse than an unattractive, green pool, but do not fear! The most effective way to ensure your pool is free of any form of algae is by using preventative measures. Trust the Pump and Pool People to organise a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly service of your prized swimming pool. Be safe in the knowledge that our professional and fully-trained specialists will be on hand to keep your pool optimised and gleaming, algae free.
