Your pool may be a place of relaxation, but taking full advantage of that relaxation requires a fair amount of work.
Keeping up with your pool’s maintenance demands plenty of diligence, which can be a headache all on its own. But it’s when you fall behind on that maintenance that issues really start to multiply.

Our pool cleaning & maintenance services can not only ease the burden of keeping your water pool clean but also help you avoid costly repairs down the road. Here’s what you need to know about professional pool maintenance and how it can benefit you.
There are many reasons you should stay on top of your pool maintenance. Some are obvious; others, not so much. Here are a few of the most notable.
No one wants to swim in a green, swamplike pool, but keeping up with water maintenance is more important than just combating algae. Along with being more pleasant to swim in, properly balanced water is also safer to swim in.
If you don’t take the proper steps to balance the water in your swimming pool, pollutants, contaminants, bacteria, and other undesirable substances can make their way into it and pose a threat to the safety of anyone who uses the pool.
The less pool maintenance you do, the harder it is for your pool’s mechanical equipment to continue running as you expect it to. It may still do its job, but the lack of maintenance can put undue stress on it. Eventually, this stress can cause it to break down prematurely.
Swimming pools can be extremely dangerous if you’re not careful. Regular pool maintenance can help keep your swimming area safe and free of hazards that might put you or a guest at risk. It will also help spot conditions that may be a threat to your swimming pool itself.
Calm Waters offers many pool residential services in Florida that can help keep your pool in great shape, including inspections, pool equipment repair service, and regular cleaning.
We’ll perform a thorough inspection of your pool to confirm that everything is up to code and rule out the need for repairs. If we discover any issues, we can perform the equipment repairs & equipment maintenance needed to keep your pool running properly.
After the initial inspection, we’ll clean out your filters and service any equipment that may need it, making sure your swimming pool operates at full capacity regardless of its size, age, or construction.
Once we’ve serviced your equipment, we’ll balance your chemicals, skim and clean the water and surrounding deck, and ensure that the pool pump and filtration systems are in good working order. This takes the pressure of maintaining a clear, sparkling pool off of you.
Hurricanes are one of the most destructive forces on the planet. While you may have more pressing things to worry about when one is predicted to hit, you should know that your pool could be in big trouble if it’s not properly protected.
Hurricanes can damage every part of a swimming pool, from the mechanical equipment and electrical panels to the main surfaces and crucial accessories. And that’s without factoring in the potential for water displacement, replacement, and contamination.
Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate or even avoid these issues, provided you know how to properly prepare a pool for a hurricane.
Here are a few essential tips for getting your pool ready to weather the storm.
Many people instinctively drain their pools before a hurricane. In reality, this isn’t a good idea, as the water’s density serves to protect the pool’s structure. You should also resist the urge to cover your pool, as all it will likely do is damage your expensive pool cover.
To avoid damaging your electrical equipment, you’ll want to turn off the power until the hurricane has passed. You’ll also want to move as much equipment as possible to a safe, dry place and cover anything that can’t be moved with a well-secured tarp.
Anything around the pool that may be swept up in the wind and turned into a projectile should be removed from the area and stored safely. That includes pool toys, tables and chairs, umbrellas, and anything else that’s not strapped or bolted down.
You never know what may end up in your pool after a hurricane has passed through. Any number of foreign substances can contaminate the water and cause serious problems. To avoid that, add a little extra chlorine to the water in your pool before the storm hits.
