Why is my pool water cloudy?
Several things can cause a pool to lose its clarity – inadequate water circulation, chemical imbalance, poor filtration, or lack of oxidation. At Care4Pools, we are IPSSA Water Chemistry certified and perform more diagnostic pool inspections than any other pool service in the area.

Can algae really hurt my pool?

Yes! If left unchecked, algae can grow in free-floating patches or cling to pool walls. Not only can algae clog filters, it eventually can cause pool surface damage and impact swimmers’ health.

 Why does my pool have a strong chlorine smell?
You may be improperly administering chemicals, which is costly and can prove harmful to eyes and skin.

Can I experiment with chemicals until I get the water quality I want?

NEVER experiment! Improper measuring and mixing of chemicals – whether diluted or concentrated – can create both unwanted reactions and potential health hazards. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions with special attention.

What is RWI?

RWI stands for recreational water illnesses that are caused by bacteria found in water, such as pools and spas. RWI usually involves diarrhea-type illnesses, but also can cause skin rash and ear, eye or respiratory infections. Pool and spa water requires proper chemical treatment to lessen the incidence of RWI. Also, people should avoid swallowing pool water and not swim while sick.

Can poor water chemistry damage my pool?

Yes! Improper water chemistry will damage your pool equipment, plumbing, and pool surface.

Why does my pool have a strong chlorine smell?

Most likely the cause is chlormines. Chlormines are a mixture of bacteria, ammonia, waste and chlorine and which can prove harmful to eyes and skin.

What causes green hair?

Green hair is almost always caused by high copper level, due to poor water balance, and its after effects on plumbing and equipment, or using a copper based algaecide.

Isn’t it easier to just take care of the pool myself?

Taking care of your pool yourself is always an option. Proper pool maintenance requires not only the physical labor of cleaning the pool, but also chemical levels such as; Chlorine, Alkalinity, Free Chlorine, pH, T.D.S, and Cyanuric acid must be consistently maintained to have a safe swimming environment. In addition, we are trained to notice any changes in the performance of the pool equipment. We can then immediately troubleshoot any problems.

How much does Do It Yourself pool maintenance cost?
With the recent rise in the cost of chemicals, the monthly expense of chemicals will average $50 or more. Plus there is the extra cost of your time. Putting aside time every week to clean the pool, making trips to your local pool supply store, storing potentially harmful and corrosive chemicals. Your time is too valuable, let Care4Pools allow you to Enjoy Your Pool ~ Care Free!!
