With the colder months in the Dallas area on it's way, the question that we get is...
"Do I really need Pool Service during the cold months of the year?"
Well, from a pool industry pro point of view.. YES you do need service...
You may be asking why is that? We don't swim during this time of year (unless you are heating your pool during the cold months), so what's the point??
I will outline just a couple reasons that it is important to continue, or start service in the cold wintery months, even though your may not be swimming.
1) Equipment has a tendency to break more in the summer and WINTER months due to the harsh weather conditions.
If you have a pipe, for example, that busts during the winter months and you, as the pool owner, don't catch it in time, you could be looking at a high repair bill to fix not only the pipe (not too expensive), but possibly any other equipment (pumps, motors, filters, etc.) that is directly effected by that one pipe breaking.
Alternatively, having a trained "eye" on your property even if only 2 times a month could provide you not only peace of mind, but possibly bring to the your attention any leaks or problems that could cause future issues.
2) Chemical Balance
It seems people are under the misconception that pool chemical balance is NOT important during the cold months because they don't see algae in their pools. While it is true that algae has a hard time growing in water temperatures lower below 60 degrees F/ 15 degrees C.
However, the water still needs to be balanced due to the effect that the chemicals have on your pool plaster and metals within your equipment. These things are DIRECTLY affected by the levels of Chlorine, pH, Total Alkalinity, Stabilizer and Calcium that are in the pool.
3) The pool is still a beautiful thing
Regardless of whether you are using the pool or not, the thing still needs to look good. Last thing you want is to be having a party and NOT have anyone available to come clean your pool on short notice...
Give us a call and see how affordable peace of mind can truly be.... JT
