Fix Cloudy Pool Water Sherman OaksSherman Oaks swimming pool owners ask us all the time about fixing cloudy water issues. Crystal clear water is vital to fully enjoy your backyard pool. As soon as the water gets cloudy and murky there’s a problem somewhere that needs fixed. There is a few reasons that will lead cloudy pool water. Here is a breakdown of the most common issues that turn your water murky and cloudy. Two leading contributors to water becoming hazy looking is pool equipment and the chemical balancing. Most times a chemical imbalance is to blame but not always. To make sure the water chemistry is balanced buy a water test kit. Factors like the pH and the calcium hardness makes a cloudy pool and lower than normal chlorine levels show some sort of contamination.

Clean Murky Pool Water Sherman OaksFor equipment check your filter to make sure its the proper size for your pool. Your pump and motor should also be the correct size to match your filter. Pumps that are too large can cause filtration issues leading to overcast looking water. Always have a clean pool filter so the water flows as it should. If you have a sand filter that has not been serviced and clean for a few years it needs cleaning and inspected too. For swimming pools that use a DE filter make sure to clean the parts inside before charging back up with DE powder. Also look at how long your filter runs daily. A good rule of thumb is to have your filter running 8-12 hours a day. Many cloudy water issues that plague Sherman Oaks pools is fixed by having your pool cleaned on a weekly schedule. Just vacuuming the bottom and brushing the walls of your pool on a regular schedule.Swimming water needs regularly maintained so it always has a crystal clean look.

Green Pool Cleanup for Summer

Green Pool Cleanup Sherman OaksEvery year at this time calls come in from Sherman Oaks pool owners for emergency green pool cleanup situations. Right before the memorial day weekend pool companies like ours get weekly calls from home owners who look to their backyard considering some sort of pool party for the holiday weekend and quickly see their pool is not ready. It’s best to have a professional swimming pool technician that’s licensed and is an expert at restoring murky green pool’s to swim safe, clean clear and blue. Once restored keeping your water clean and safe with a regular scheduled cleaning will make sure the green color does not return. If left unattended for even a few days you will notice a color change in the pool water from blue to green and the water may start to smell also. If left even longer with water sitting still that awful foul odor will become even more noticeable. Your neighbors will for sure start to also notice the smell coming from your back yard. Besides the obvious like being unsafe for swimming a green pool will turn into a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other dangerous micro organisms. Your chances of becoming ill from this dramatically increases and that is true for the surrounding houses as well. Just a couple of years ago a woman in neighboring Studio City got the west Nile virus from a next door neighbors home. The home was a bank foreclosure and instead of dealing with extra costs the water went green from being untreated. When water gets to this unsafe level there a cases where home owners get fined if not correcting the issue within days. There are even Helicopters that fly over many Los Angeles cities looking for mosquito infected pools. A green pool is not hard to spot from 1,000 feet up we’ve been told. Fines can reach up to $1,000.00 for severe cases.

Green Pool Cleanup Sherman Oaks CA

When the water is cloudy and you no longer see the bottom when standing above and looking down its time to have your problem looked at. Other factors like unbalanced water chemistry, bacteria and poor equipment maintenance on pumps and filters will further speed up the problem. If your pool has any of the above then it’s time for a green pool cleaning to make it safe for swimming but also ready for you to enjoy during the upcoming summer months. After the algae, bacteria or equipment problem is fixed a regular upkeep service for  your pool is important. If the cleaning falls behind and equipment not properly maintained the water will soon be not safe for swimming and green once again. It can take a bit of time to keep up the water safety and cleanliness of your pool on a busy schedule. This is a main reason many Sherman Oaks pool owners hire us for a green pool cleanup and then also help to support their pool or spa on a weekly bi-weekly basis to keep it blue and ready for swimming anytime.
