It’s been a long winter, and nothing sounds better than a quick dip in your Skovish pool. You’ve balanced the pH, rinsed the laundry detergent out of your swimming suits and brought out the beach towels. It’s party time at the pool.
We know the feeling. That’s why we love what we do at Skovish Pools. We bring the experience home to you.
It’s also why we’re diligent about catching any problems with your pool or equipment while they are still manageable. Chemical treatments, mechanical adjustments or simple patches can all be useful.
Meanwhile, you can help us by keeping your eyes and ears open to anything that seems a little off-kilter. Here are a few tell-tale signs that trouble might be brewing:
- If you notice a sudden drop in the water level, more than you can explain by evaporation or an especially vigorous pool party, start looking for leaks. If you’re losing more than 1 in. a day, it’s time to call in the pros. Catching the problem early can save you time and money.
- A sudden change in the color of your water indicates possible problems with your pump or filter. If the water is a murky green, you might have an algae problem. Start by cleaning your pool equipment’s filters and baskets. Follow up with a shock treatment if chemical levels indicate an imbalance. Throw in an algaecide, especially this time of the year. Always feel free to ask for advice when you pick up your pool chemicals at our Luzerne and Shickshinny stores.
- Your pool is foaming, and your hair is turning green. Sounds like you’re using too much of a good thing, particularly algaecide. Scale back on the copper sulfate, and the problem should disappear.
Always remember, help is only a phone call away. At Skovish Pools, we don’t disappear when the installation is done. We’re there for you for the life of your pool.
