Weekly Pool Service in Las Vegas
Hello friends and welcome to another edition of our weekly blog. With 100-degree temperatures just around the corner in Las Vegas, it is now time to start thinking about how to care for your pool when the water warms up. Let’s face it, taking care of a pool when the water is cold is relatively easy but it is a much different ball game when the water temperature warms up. The reason why is algae loves warm water and it will turn in a day or less if you aren’t taking care of your pool properly. So what changes? What needs to be handled differently? First and foremost you’re going to need to take care of it weekly and sometimes more than once a week.
Clark County Pool & Lawn has many years of service in the Las Vegas area taking care of your residential and commercial swimming pool. We pride ourselves on having many years of knowledge to share with you if you want to take care of your own pool but also have the staff that can always make sure your pool is clear, blue and ready to swim in. That is why when the weather warms up in Las Vegas you’re going to need to increase your chlorine levels to a minimum of 3 parts per million (ppm). Depending on what you’re dealing with it might even need to be higher but most importantly when it comes to chlorine, pH, and Total Alkalinity you need to balance it weekly. One of the biggest reasons why algae will creep into the picture is when your water chemistry isn’t balanced.
Another reason why this happens is that you don’t clean your pool regularly. You must brush the steps, tile, interior finish, and benches regularly. Brushing usually gets forgotten about but it is one of the most important steps you must take on a weekly basis. The other issue is your filtration run times. These must increase to a minimum of 8 hours a day to properly allow circulation of the chemicals and water into and out of the filter. Proper weekly pool service in Las Vegas is essential and Clark County Pool & Lawn is here to help you. If you should have any questions, please contact us today.
