Top Pool Maintenance related questions

The cost of maintaining a pool can range from $60 to $300, which includes basic cleaning and checking. This also depends on different factors, such as the size, type of maintenance needed, and state of your pool. If you need to clean your pool, expect the rates for pool cleaning services to fall between $63 and $150. Set a budget and include all the necessary information about your task to get the best quotes and find the right pool maintenance specialist in your area. 

A clear pool doesn't necessarily mean that it's clean and fit for swimming. If not cleaned or maintained regularly, this can become a breeding ground for bacteria, mould, or algae. A pool's filtration system needs weekly maintenance to remove any dirt and debris build up. Pool water must also be disinfected regularly to maintain proper pH levels and keep algae, bacteria, and fungi at bay. In certain cases, pool specialists can conduct water testing, add a stabiliser (cyanuric acid), or perform other treatment methods to sanitise and make sure the water is clean and clear. Ultimately, weekly maintenance and service can keep your pool clean and safe for swimming and save you any further damage costs in the long run.

Booking your pool care service a few days to a week ahead is ideal. Doing so gives you enough time to prepare your pool, especially if you're planning to hold a party or an intimate gathering in your backyard. However, if you need it serviced right away, that's no problem as well. Airtasker can help you find maintenance experts in your area who can get straight to work, so you can soon get the most out of your pool.

The green discolouration is due to algae growth in your pool. Algae can quickly grow and spread in warm weather conditions, and a mild case can rapidly turn into an infestation overnight. Algae growth comes down to the imbalance or lack of chlorine in your pool water. To avoid an algae outbreak, book regular pool care services with a Tasker.

Look for signs of leakage such as stain level lines, closed valves, damaged gaskets, and more. You can also conduct a simple bucket test that involves filling a bucket with the same water level as your pool and placing it in the second pool step. After two to three days, check if your pool level has dropped more than the bucket. If it has, that means there's a leak that needs immediate repair as soon as possible.

This depends on the specific chemical treatment you had. In general, it's best to wait at least 20 minutes to an hour if you've added chemicals to balance the pool water. For chloride and chlorine, however, it's recommended to swim only after 24 hours or when your chlorine level has reached five ppm.

Showering helps remove sweat, body lotions, cosmetics, and traces of urine and faecal matter on the body. These substances can contaminate the pool and cause an imbalance in the water's pH level. When this happens, your pool needs to work harder and requires harsher chemical treatments. Showering before swimming helps ease the burden on your pool, prevents illnesses, and keeps swimming healthy for everyone.

What do pool maintenance and repair services include?

Swimming pool maintenance and repair services encompass everything that's required to keep your pool in great shape. While it's tempting to DIY this task, it's always better to leave it to the pros who have the experience, knowledge, and tools to maintain swimming pools. Besides balancing your pool water and adding the right chemical treatments to ensure proper pH levels, pool maintenance can also include assessing your pool for damage or leaks and cleaning your pool filters and pumps. 

Airtasker makes it easy to find a swimming pool service nearby to help you with whatever you need - from pool cleaning to pool repairs

Domestic pool maintenance

Domestic swimming pool maintenance starts with a visual inspection to check if your pool equipment is in good running condition. Pool specialists carefully examine your pumps, skimmer baskets, motors, and filter systems for signs of damage and address or repair any leaks. They can also check your pool walls for structural cracks. 

Afterward, your pool expert maintains your pool water's pH balance by adding the correct levels of chlorine, alkaline, and other chemicals. They conduct water testing to see if additional treatments are needed to maintain chlorine levels and keep the water clean. This way, you can fully enjoy your pool without having to worry about its safety or cleanliness. 

Once your pool is ready for use, how about getting lessons from a swim instructor? Whether you're an adult needing to polish your swimming skills or a parent looking out for your child, there are plenty of experienced instructors you can hire for safe and professional swimming lessons.

Above-ground pool maintenance

Above-ground pools are becoming increasingly popular, and it's not hard to see why. They not only cost less, but they're also faster to install and easier to maintain. If you need someone to take care of your above-ground pool for you, Airtasker is here to help. We can connect you with pool service specialists around you to vacuum your pool, brush your walls and tiles, clean your pumps and filters, and balance your pool water. Some specialists can also help with hot tub maintenance or hot tub cleaning. 

If you use your pool often, you can book weekly above-ground pool maintenance, so your swimming pool is kept clean and well-maintained. Why not take a step further and enhance your backyard? Our platform also lets you find experts who can install pergolas to add to your home's aesthetic appeal. You can even take it up a notch and find contractors who can put up a fence and make your backyard the perfect place to kick back after a long day.

Seasonal pool maintenance

Whether you need to prep your pool for the summer or have it winterised for the cold months, pool service specialists on Airtasker can get it done. A pre-season check can include removing your pool cover, clearing away debris, adding the required chemicals, and reconnecting all pool equipment.

Swimming season might be over, but that doesn't pool owners should leave their swimming pools during the cold months. Taskers can offer seasonal maintenance services to help with these tasks. Winter decommissions involve draining your pool, protecting your pipes, balancing the water chemistry, and finally fitting a winter cover to protect it from harsh temperatures. With seasonal maintenance, your pool is kept in excellent condition all year round. 

If you're opening up your pool for the summer season, maybe you also need a handyman to assemble your outdoor furniture? Or how about someone to put together your new BBQ for that perfect summer grill? Whatever you need to get done, Airtasker can lend a hand!
