|Tarzana Pool Maintenance Tips
Here in Los Angeles we experience mild seaonal changes, but these seasons do mark a shift in how we maintain our swimming pools and spas. In the Spring time we get our pools prepared by making sure that the filters are cleaned as they rid the water of microscopic particles and create the best chance for crystal blue clarity while minimizing algae spores proliferating. Also, it's a good time to test all of the chemical parameters. Make sure conditioner is present in the water to stave off rapid chlorine depletion by the sun. In Tarzana, pool maintenance includes chemical balancing, but many choose to rely on the support of professionals like us. So keep us in mind when you need a technical question answered. Now, don't forget to check for water hardness, pH, Alkalinity, and total dissolved solids, as these factors contribute to a beautiful and healthful pool. And lastly, be sure to reset the timer to run approximately 6-8 hours in warm weather- depending on the size of your structure. Winter can go from 4-6 hours, but water clarity may diminish if circulating for too short a time. Regular vacuuming, brushing, netting, and weekly testing should make your oasis all easy to maintain - depending upon keeping your landscape relatively clean. It is always best to trim the shrubbery regularly, and with a major tree trimming every 5 years. Give us a call for any of your needs whether service or repair - we're here for you.
