1. Acid Wash
Many of our customers have issues with staining at the bottom of their pool or have pools that have become taken over by algae due to poor maintenance during cold seasons, stagnant water or lack of pool care. A service that is especially helpful in these instances is acid washing your pool, often referred to as “drain & clean”.
Acid washing removes a thin layer of your grout to reveal a fresh surface. This removes algae, mineral, chlorine and even dirt stains from the bottom and sides of your pool. If your pool was poorly maintained in the past or has had stagnant water which turned into an algae bloom, algae and phosphates can become embedded in your pool’s finish, making it nearly impossible to get rid of. Acid washing your pool removes any algae or phosphates that are not otherwise removed with chemicals. When finished, the acid washing process gives your pool a clean, fresh new finish and clear, sparkling water.
2. Sand Filter Change
For pool owners, few things are as satisfying as crystal clear water on a hot sunny day. To ensure that clarity remains all season long, it’s important to properly maintain and clean your pool’s filter. Effective filter maintenance is important throughout the entire pool season, but it’s especially critical to make sure your filter is working properly as peak season approaches. Whether you have a sand, cartridge or DE filter, there are important maintenance procedures you should follow and key products you can incorporate into your filter-maintenance program.
Every 2 to 3 years you’ll have to replace the sand in your sand filter. The sand in the filter actually wears out. The sharp edges of the sand particles become worn and rounded from friction and don’t capture the contaminates as well. Also the sand will start to ball up or the water will create channels thru the sand. You will notice that your pool water is not as clean or the interval between required backwashes is shorter. Eventually, if you own a Sand Filter it will require this type of repair service. Changing the sand is definitely not something many pool owners are equipped to handle and that’s when it’s wise to call in the professionals at Bluewave Swimming Pool Services.
Don’t Tackle The Hard Jobs Yourself – Call The Professionals!
Knowing when to change the sand in your filter probably won’t be obvious. But if you’re keeping up on regular maintenance and don’t have an issue such as algae in your pool—and your water still is not as clean and clear as you expect—it might be time to change the sand. If you’re like most pool owners with a sand filter, you’re changing the sand about every three to five years, depending on use. Because changing the sand is not part of your daily and monthly maintenance routine, it’s important to contact a professional Pool Service technician to handle repairs that can otherwise damage your pools plumbing or equipment.
3. Clean Salt Cells Chlorinator
We Install & Service Salt Cell Chlorine Systems
Saltwater chlorination for pools and spas is fast becoming an industry standard for swimming pools in Kenya and we specialize in the installation and repair of salt cell equipment. Now you can turn ordinary salt into a self-regenerating supply of pure chlorine for both pool and spa water that’s clean, clear and soft. Electronic chlorination has become the simple, safe and affordable alternative to using harsh, chemically-produced chlorine to sanitize pools and spas.
A salt chlorination system can save time and money on your chemical bills, but it still needs to be serviced from time to time. The number one maintenance item for a salt water chlorinator is to clean the salt cell regularly, every 2-6 months, but only as needed. Mineral deposits bridge the space between the metal plates, and not just in hard water areas.
Bluewave Swimming Pool Services technicians will clean the buildup from your cell and restore it to its maximum efficiency. If your salt system shows Inspect Cell or Clean Cell, call Bluewave so our service technician can correct the problem. If you live in an area with high calcium levels, you may need to have your salt cells cleaned even more often.
How To Tell When It’s Time For a New Salt Cell
You may not know this, but most salt cells won’t work well in water temperatures less than 16 degrees celcius. For this reason, they may have trouble creating enough chlorine during the cold seasons. They can also be overworked in such temperatures, leading to a shorter lifespan.
Eventually, you’ll need a new salt cell. You’ll know it’s time when the chlorine output drops to low levels, despite a clean cell and sensor, proper water balance, salt levels and water temperature.
