Mike and his team have taken the time to resolve several issues with our pool system. Some of them were unresolved by our previous pool company. It is now running properly and we can enjoy our pool and hot tub again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers To Common Questions

How often should my pool be serviced

The frequency of pool service depends on several factors such as the size of the pool, the type of filter system, and how often the pool is used. However, most pools should be serviced at least once a week to maintain water clarity and sanitation levels.

What does a standard pool service include?

Within each cycle, on a weekly basis, we brush the pool basin, brush the tile line, measure and log the basic chemistry (sanitizer and pH), make any necessary chemical adjustments, skim out any debris, and perform a cursory inspection of the equipment pad. In that, the most important task is brushing. Like our dentist tells us to brush our teeth to avoid buildup, we need to brush the basin to avoid the staining and discoloration caused by microalgae.

At scheduled points within each cycle, we do a deep dive into the chemistry evaluating your LSI (this is a vital benchmark of the water's health and will protect the basin as well as the equipment); make any chemical adjustments necessary to balance the LSI; vacuum the pool; wash the filter element; and apply a chemical tile soap to the tile to minimize buildup from sunblock and bodily deposits. A properly balanced LSI will prevent etching and scaling but can also preserve the lifespan of the equipment.

At the end of each service, you will receive an email report outlining the services performed, chemical readings and adjustments made, picture(s) of the finished product, and any notes we would like to relay to you.

Why is my pool water cloudy?

Cloudy pool water can be caused by several factors, including improper chemical balance, high calcium hardness levels, poor filtration, or the presence of algae. A pool professional can test your water and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Why is my pool losing water?

Pools can lose water due to evaporation, splash-out, or leaks. If you suspect a leak because the water loss is greater than what can be attributed to evaporation or splash-out, it's best to contact a pool professional for a leak detection service.

How do I get rid of algae in my pool?

Algae can be treated by adjusting the water chemistry, brushing the pool surfaces, vacuuming, and using an algaecide. Regular maintenance and balanced water chemistry can help prevent algae from growing in the first place.

How often should I shock my pool?

It's generally recommended to shock your pool once a week during the swimming season, and more frequently if the pool is used heavily, after a rainstorm, or if you notice signs of algae.

How often should I replace my pool filter?

Most pools in SW Florida operate with a single element cartridge filter. Depending on the size of the element compared to the pool and the typical bather load of the pool, most manufacturers recommend replacing the elements every 12-18 months.

Can I service my pool myself?

While some pool maintenance tasks can be done by the pool owner, others, like repairing equipment, handling certain chemicals, or diagnosing complex issues, should be left to professionals to ensure safety and proper care. Most equipment manufacturers will not fully warranty the equipment unless it is installed by a licensed contractor.

What is the ideal pH level for my pool?

The ideal pH level for a swimming pool is typically between 7.2 and 7.6. This range is safe for swimmers and helps sanitizers work effectively. With the use of stabilizer in most outdoor pools, pH does not have the same impact on chlorine as it otherwise would. That being said, pH is an important part of the overall health of the water as it relates to the basin and your pool equipment. We monitor and manage the saturation index of your pool because a complete view of pool chemistry is vital for the long term health of your entire pool system.

What are the benefits of hiring a professional pool service?

Hiring a Wave 6 Pools can save you time and effort. We have the knowledge and experience to handle chemicals safely, diagnose and fix problems, and keep your pool clean and safe for swimming. Regular professional service can also prolong the life of your pool and equipment.
