In Sydney, pool maintenance is an important step to ensure your swimming pool stays clean, operate efficiently and ages longer. This is why you should have your pool cleaned once a week or a few times a month.
Plunging into a swimming pool’s cold water during hot summer days is one of the best luxuries on earth. Swimming is one of the staple activities many families look forward to as they’re a great place to spend time with your family and cool off from the scorching heat. People now are realising the importance of owning a private pool in their backyards as it grants better access, convenience and comfort compared to swimming in a public pool. However, people often forget that owning a pool is a great responsibility. If you do own a pool in Sydney, pool maintenance is an important factor to ensure a safe and clean environment. If you don’t maintain your pool, it may increase the chances of having various accidents, diseases, and infections.

How Often Do Swimming Pools Need Maintenance?
There are two ways to keep up with pool maintenance in Sydney:
In Sydney, pool maintenance should be done regularly. Who can perform your weekly, fortnightly or monthly pool maintenance? You could decide to do the job yourself but if you’re not sure what the correct process is, it is highly recommended that you contact a pool maintenance specialist to perform the weekly pool maintenance for you. We are Sydney’s best pool service that supplies and installs only the highest quality pool equipment along with complete after-sales and warranty service. Our specialists will skim the surface of your pool at least once a week. Doing weekly skimming keeps dirt from sinking to the bottom of the pool.
Apart from skimming the pool, the specialist will clean the skimmer basket, backwash and rinse the filter, run the pool vacuum, scrub the walls and tiles of your pool to keep them free of calcium and algae build-up. Lastly, they will check the chemical balance of your pool with their computerised testing system, once a week. They will add the necessary chemicals to balance the pool water.
During summer the pool water level should be checked at least once a month. The Pool water can evaporate and the water level will go down. Hence, you need to check your water level and refill as required. A heat retention pool blanket would be recommended as it stops up to 97% of water evaporation.
Various pool cleaning services even recommend considering “shocking” your pool once a month. “Shocking” refers to the process of adding chlorine or non-chlorine chemicals to your pool to restore chlorine levels and get rid of the bacterias.
