On the surface(!), swimming pool maintenance seems straightforward: fishing out leaves with a net and ensuring the correct balance of Ph, alkaline, chlorine, calcium etc. But there is a lot more to it than that. There is the weather to factor in too – one thunderstorm can turn your water green! Swimming pool water can also become “saturated”, at which point chemicals are no longer effective and the only option then is to empty the pool and refill it. This is not ideal due to the cost of water in Spain, but at least while the pool is empty we can take the opportunity to clean with a high-pressure spray and fix any loose tiles. We ensure a clean and healthy pool, ready to use all year round, with maintenance as often as required. We also have extensive experience in the installation of swimming pools and jacuzzis and we can advise you about which of the many different types of pool or jacuzzi would best suit your Costa Brava property. We can also help you decide between a chlorine or a salt water pool as each may have its advantages and disadvantages depending on your property.
One of the most basic tasks of swimming pool maintenance is one that many begin by thinking they can do themselves – the regular filter cleaning, surface cleaning and emptying skimmer baskets – but it often ends up becoming a source of frustration. Our team are specialists and have plenty of experience, plus all the right tools, to ensure these tasks are carried out efficiently and effectively.
Swimming pool maintenance is cheaper than repairs in the long run and there are lots of savings to be made by using a professional pool service company. Equipment and surfaces will last longer with proper water balance and associated chemicals, plus regular upkeep of pumps will ensure any issues are identified as quickly as they occur and remedial action taken before items seize up or fail altogether, requiring expensive replacement of equipment.
Apart from the regular swimming pool maintenance, another important factor which can be a challenge for anyone with a pool on their property here on the Costa Brava – particularly for those whose main home is abroad – is keeping up to date with changing Spanish legislation regarding the use and storage of chemicals. At callCarlos that’s just part of our day job! So give yourself additional peace of mind knowing that not only will you and your guests have a clean and functioning pool whenever you decide to spend time here, but also that any changing legislation and pool owner obligations will be brought to your attention straight away.
