Our Pool Maintenance Services:
Skim Debris and Clean out Baskets.
Skimming significantly increases the efficiency of the pool’s circulation system and lowers the amount of chlorine you’ll need to add to your pool.
Cleaning out strainer baskets at least once a week also helps circulation and lowers chlorine demands.
Vacuum the Pool and Brush Walls and Tile.
A pool should be vacuumed every week to keep water clear and reduce the amount of chemicals you need to add to it.
Brushing the walls and tile helps minimize algae buildup and calcium deposits so they don’t fester and become larger problems.
When dirt gets into small cracks and pores in your pool wall, it can create fast growing algae.
A pool brush attached to the telescopic pole is most commonly used to brush algae off the walls.
Clean the Pool Filter.
The main purpose of the swimming pool filter system is to keep your pool water clear and clean.
When you filter your pool, a lot of dirt and debris is caught in the filter sand.
Your filter will become clogged and will need to be backwashed and rinsed to clear it.
There are three kinds of pool filters: cartridge, sand and diatomaceous earth.
While there are different maintenance procedures for each type, all require periodic cleaning depending on the type of filter and how often a pool is used.
Check and Maintain Water Level.
The water level of your pool will decrease due to evaporation and activity such as swimming, splashing and exiting the pool.
Maintain the pH Level.
Pool water should be tested regularly to make sure it’s clean and healthy.
Maintaining the proper chemical balance in your pool water not only keeps the water sparkling clean, it also helps protect your heater, pump, and other system components from damage, and can assist in keeping your pool finish looking like new.
- Low pH causes eye and skin irritation.
- High pH inactivates chlorine.
- Unbalanced pH can damage vinyl liners.
- Low pH can lead to corrosion.
- High pH causes cloudy water.

Pool Leaks and Structural Pool Repairs
Concrete, vinyl and fibreglass are the 3 main types of swimming pool materials. They each have advantages and disadvantages and each one can be susceptible to a different type of disrepair.
- Concrete pools
Minor cracks in the pool walls can be patched whereas bigger cracks might require completely overhauling your swimming pool.
- Vinyl pools
These types of pools are vulnerable to tears in the lining. Small tears can be repaired and if you have larger tears, they may require replacing the lining. The good news is that replacing a liner is a lot cheaper than replacing concrete.
This type of swimming pool is almost indestructible but reactions to minerals and chemicals can cause discolouration. This problem can be solved.
Pool Pumps and Filters repairs
If your pump or filter hasn’t broken down completely, it may not always be clear which on isn’t working properly. It could be that both are working fine but a system was installed whereby the pump and filter don’t work well together. This is, however, more common in older pools.
We can assist you in detecting the problem and advising you what is required to get the pump and filter running efficiently.
