Our experience makes a CLEAR difference in your pool
We all know that a swimming pool does not clean itself, despite our advancements in technology in the 20th century. If you own a pool it’s a good thing to have a pool service professional on call. Developing a reliable maintenance plan is critical to the longevity of your swimming pool investment.
Pool & Spa Routine Care & Service
While most pools & spas may be efficiently designed allowing for extended periods without service before they turn green, for example, even more swimming pools are a bit more difficult to maintain. In either case, it is always best to service a swimming pool every 7 days.
Once per week you or a trained professional should be checking out a few things to ensure there are no problems, and to keep up with changing pool chemical demands. Allowing your pool to go longer than 7 days without some type of basic service will end with problems.
Your Weekly Pool Cleaning Team
When cleaning a pool, think of the process in a “top-down” method. Starting with all serviceable items at the water level, and then proceeding to vacuuming and finishing off with a good brushing. By the time you or our trained service tech has completed the weekly service you will have touched nearly 95% of the pool surfaces or materials. The best pool maintenance plan to follow is weekly full service, that takes about 1 – 2 hours to complete once each week.
Here are the key points of routine pool service to perform:
Daily (by the Pool Owner)
Visually check the pool water level
Add water to proper level as needed
Ensure the pool has been on for the day

Weekly Pool Care Checklist
Here is what you should do each week to keep a clean swimming pool:
You need to be dedicated and perform each of these tasks on the same day each week.
In our experience in the Greater Houston & Montgomery County climates and the average amount of swimming a swimming pool in Texas will need service each week. Things such as water evaporation, splashing water out of the pool, and leaks can cause dilution of pool chemicals. Allowing a pool to go un-serviced for longer than a week may result in the formation of green algae.
Clean the pool from the top down. Working with the pool tiles and the net first.
Brush the upper tiles first, and the pool bottom after vacuuming.
Move the net in a zig-zag motion overlapping strokes.
When switching to spa, move quickly for less air pockets.
Close other suction valves for stronger vacuum.
