Top Pool Maintenance related questions

Take note that a clear pool doesn't necessarily mean that it's clean and fit for swimming. A pool's filtration system needs weekly maintenance to remove any accumulated dirt and debris. Pool water must also be disinfected regularly to keep algae, bacteria, and fungi at bay. Ultimately, weekly pool maintenance and service keeps your pool clean and safe for swimming and saves you any further damage costs in the long run.

How long you have to wait to use your swimming pool depends on the specific chemical treatment. 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.

Look for signs of leakage such as stain level lines, closed valves, damaged gaskets, and more. You can also conduct a simple bucket test which 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.

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. That's why it's essential to get your pool regularly serviced and maintained to avoid an algae outbreak.

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.

Booking your pool maintenance 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 swimming pool.

What do pool maintenance and repair services include?

Pool maintenance and repair services encompass everything that's required to keep your pool in great shape. Besides balancing your pool water and adding the right chemical treatments, 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 nearby swimming pool service engineer to help you with whatever you need, which can include:

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, motors, and filter systems for signs of damage, and address or repair any leaks and structural cracks. 

Afterwards, your pool maintenance expert maintains your pool water's pH balance by adding the correct levels of chlorine, alkaline, and other chemicals. 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 who can vacuum your pool, brush your walls and tiles, clean your pumps and filters, and balance your pool water. 

If you use your pool often, you can book weekly above-ground pool maintenance, so your 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.

Winter decommissions, on the other hand, 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!
