Baton Rouge Commercial Pool Service

Commercial pool maintenance is a major responsibility. Depending on the type of property you have, your pool, or pools, are a significant investment that have substantial health and safety considerations. Whether you have a pool at a gym, apartment or condominium complex, hotel, or any other type of commercial property, proper maintenance and service should be a top priority. Here is everything you need to know about commercial pool maintenance.

Your pool water’s pH is an essential aspect of maintaining a safe and healthy pool. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with seven being neutral. A pH above 7 makes the water basic and below seven acidic. Ideally, your pool’s pH should be at 7.4, which is the same pH as the human eye. You should test the water weekly or after receiving a lot of rain to make any necessary adjustments.  

The cleaner your pool’s water is, the safer, healthier, and more enjoyable your pool will be. Clear and balanced protects against contaminants and prevents damage to your pool’s equipment.  

Not only does keeping your pool’s interior and surfaces clean make it look good, but it also keeps the water cleaner and safer. Because the stairs, floors, and walls are in constant contact with water, they are susceptible to mold and algae. When debris like sticks and leaves sink to the bottom, they can stain and damage these surfaces.  

The walls and floor of your pool are in constant contact with water. This makes them susceptible to stains, mold, algae, and other debris related problems. Keeping these surfaces clean will keep them looking new, and help in keeping your water clean.

The best way to make sure your pool’s filtration system performs reliably is to the skimmer baskets empty and the filter clean. When these components are clear, it reduces the amount of stress on the pump.  

The filtration system in your pool is made up of several components. The pump draws in water for the filter to clean before returning it to the pool. If one of these parts isn’t working correctly, your water can quickly become cloudy and unsafe.  

There are a few basic tools that make keeping your pool clean a simple task. A pool brush and a net skimmer two of the most common instruments that can be kept nearby and used when necessary. The skimmer is used to remove debris from both the water's surface and anything that has sunk to the bottom of the pool. The pool brush can clean the walls, floor, steps, and other surfaces of the pool. An automated pool cleaner can be another helpful tool that constantly keeps your pool clean.

Getting your busy swimming season off on the right start begins with a little basic maintenance. Vacuuming, skimming, and scrubbing will leave the water and surfaces sparkling and clean. Test the water and add any necessary chemicals to make sure it is safe and healthy. Inspect the filter, pump, and skimmer baskets to ensure they are in proper working order.

As the busy season for your pool winds down, a few additional steps need to be taken. The water should continue to be skimmed and the surfaces cleaned. This is a good time of the year to look over the pool’s equipment like the pump, skimmer baskets, lights, etc. Backwashing your filter is another good idea so that it will perform at its best during the colder months and be ready when you open your pool in the spring. Lastly, make sure that water is balanced.
