Hiring a Swimming Pool Service

Backyard swimming pool maintenance is easy to neglect if you have a busy schedule. However, it is important to keep the chemicals balanced in order to prevent corrosion from damaging the pipes as well as keeping the water pleasant to swim in. Some people choose to hire a pool service in order to ensure everything is kept in tiptop shape without having to do it themselves.

What does a pool service take care of, you ask? Generally, someone will come out about once a week. Their duties may vary from service to service, but many include such staples as balancing the water, vacuuming the swimming pool, checking the filter, and clearing out the skimmer baskets along with the pump's strainer basket. Cost will vary depending on your location, but expect to pay $100 or more a month for this service. Also, you'll probably have to still do some routine hand skimming between visits, as well as ensuring the skimmer baskets stay clear of debris.
