Spring is Here.....!
.....And unfortunately every year our showroom is flooded with calls, and customers who's pool resembles the pic on the left vs. the pic on the right. It's actually pretty easy to start the season with a pool that looks like the pic on the right, but I will save that for another time.
Sooo what's next? Well it's a pretty easy process, it's just time consuming and the price tag can add up depending on the severity. Hopefully you have cleaned the filter in the fall before the pool went dormant, if not guess what you get to do? It starts by bringing in a water sample for computerized water analysis. The pool must be balanced first for the process to be most effective. This will tell us where the water is "at" from balancing perspective, where it needs to be, and how to get there with no guess work. It's now time to increase pool circulation times. We will recommend pool run times based on your pool size. Next add the recommended products per the read-out based on the analysis results. It's highly recommended to run the pool 24hrs the first day during this process.
If you have followed all the recommended instructions on the analysis print out you should see improvement within a 24hr period. There is no answer as to when any pool will "turn the corner" but, the 24hr window is a good indicator if the pool is making progress. It is also a good idea to check progress by monitoring the chlorine level, visual status, and sharing this info with the Energy House. We should be able to let you know whether the pool is progressing.
Once the pool is clear and resembles the pic on the right, re-clean the filter and bring in another water sample for final balancing. Keep us in the loop by bringing in a water sample every two weeks to at least once a month. This should keep you "on track." Remember it is easier and less expensive to maintain rather than rescue a pool.
It is always the goal to have our pools look like this....
Brilliant! ...See ya soon!
