To maintain a clean and fresh swimming pool, regular maintenance is very important. If we follow some simple routine steps, we could easily maintain a nice pool. The 3 C's of the pool care must be remembered. They are circulation, cleaning, and chemistry.
Stagnant pool water inhibits the growth of microbes and various species of algae. To keep water fresh, the pool water must be regularly circulated and filtered.
The pump sucks water through a skimmer and feeds it to the filter which cleans the water and removes all debris and dust particles. After the filtration, the same water is injected back into the pool through inlets. Depending on the size and usage of pools, circulation systems need to be activated from 8- 12 hours daily. The filter needs to be cleaned when the pump gauge reading is about 10 lbs higher than normal levels and goes in the red zone. Regularly cleaning pumps and skimmer baskets increases their life. If pump buckets are clogged, it puts an extra burden on pumps. This could damage the connected equipment and the pump may break down. Inlets should be angled towards the skimmers to ensure circulation is optimal. Our outdoor swimming pool cleaning Dubai service takes care of all aspects.
It is a good habit to clean the pool manually at least twice a week.
To stop the harmful bacteria and organisms flourishing in the pool water, several chemicals are available for pool water treatment. The aim is to maintain the quality parameters of clean water. The following properties of water are regulated by the use of different chemicals. Our outdoor swimming pool cleaning Dubai service pays special attention to balance pool chemistry.
Parameters Dubai Municipality Range Chlorine 1- 2 ppm, pH 7.4 – 7.6, Cyanuric Acid, 20 – 60 ppm, TDS 100 – 1500 ppm, Calcium Hardness 100 – 500 ppm, Total Alkalinity 70 – 100 ppm
Maintaining pH levels of pool water around 7.5 can prevent corrosion and algae growth. Calcium hardness levels between 100 to 500 are ideal. Below normal calcium hardness can damage plaster and vinyl finish while higher levels could leave calcium deposits on pool walls. Chlorine is used as a sanitizer for pool water and should be maintained between 1 ppm to 2 ppm. High Phosphate levels also encourage algae growth.
The water of a swimming pool appears to be transparent and clear, but this is not a guarantee of healthy or safe water to swim within the swimming pool. There could be contaminants that are so small and invisible to naked eyes. Our outdoor swimming pool cleaning Dubai service will bring you the best swimming experience. Pool Masters employ experts who take care of aspects related to chemistry.
The use of sanitizer and chlorine can make your pool clean and keep it away from all the possibilities that may turn it into a swamp. The attributes like pH value, calcium hardness are needed to be balanced correctly in the water.
A lower pH level means that the water is acidic, and this can cause etching on the side of pools. It can also destroy the metal fixtures of your swimming pool by corrosion.
If you believe higher pH levels to be harmless for your pool installations and fittings. We advise rectifying the pH levels of pool water immediately, or it will cause damage to the plumbing and fittings.
If the pH value of your swimming pool water is maintained within the normal range as per Dubai Municipality recommendations (see table above) between 7.4 to 7.6, then there would not be any problem.
The pool water standard level is between 70 to 100 parts per million. There are chemicals that balance the high and low alkalinity.
