In order to properly maintain your pool to ensure a safe and healthy swimming environment, you’ll have to adhere to a strict weekly maintenance schedule. It will include the balancing of all the pools chemical levels (chlorine, alkalinity, free chlorine, PH and TDS), brushing all your pools walls and steps, vacuuming your pool, emptying canisters to remove debris and more! If this sounds “easy” and enjoyable then maintaining your own pool may be for you.

Keep in mind that certified pool and spa professionals, such as the technicians at Pristine Pool Service and Repair, are trained to notice subtle changes in your pools performance. If they sense an issue they can immediately address it BEFORE it becomes a major problem. This kind of expertise is not something the common pool owner has but it will save you a lot of money and worries in the long run.

If you’re a homeowner that really LIKES to maintain everything around the house then DIY may be an option. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about maintaining your pool step-by-step. However, if you’re doing it in hopes of saving a few bucks on pool service then it may not be the most economical way to go.

Let say you make $15-$20/hr. If you’re spending 1 hour a week maintaining your pool that’s effectively $60-$80 a month. That’s just your time. Next add in the pool chemicals which will average about $50-$60 per month. Between your time and chemicals you’re already looking at about $110-$140 monthly. We still haven’t added in the time and gas it will take to go back and forth to the pool supply store.

Wouldn’t you rather be spending time with your family and enjoying your pool rather than worrying about it? Eliminate the headache of pool maintenance and spend this valuable time with your family. The certified professionals at Pristine Pool Service and Repair can maintain your pool for you.
