Why Homeowners Hire a Professional Pool Service

Everyone loves to swim in a clean, beautiful pool. But, keeping a pool clean in Tampa, Fl. can be a challenge, especially in our busy society. The reasons people hire a pool pro fall into one or more different categories. Today we’re going to discuss those reasons and maybe offer some insight into your situation, which may not be as unusual as you think.

New owners

Sometimes people will buy a house with a pool, and they’re so excited, but then they realize that a pool requires competent care and maintenance. Rather than wasting a second on buyer’s remorse, they hire a pro so they can enjoy their new pool guilt-free.

Busy/Tired of doing maintenance


Some homeowners have children, pets, or sensitivities and don’t want chemicals around their home. Or they don’t want to mess with chemicals themselves. If a family is busy, they may not have time to devote to pool maintenance. Sometimes these clients start as summer customers but realize the benefits make a pool service well worthwhile even in winter months.

Sometimes, a homeowner will do their pool maintenance, but become tired of doing it and ask a pool professional to take it over, especially during the summer when the high temperatures make any outdoor work less enjoyable.

Balancing the pool

Balancing the chemicals in a pool can take some diligence and knowledge. A green pool is one of the more difficult conditions of a pool. Even though it happens from time to time as the result of irregular maintenance or just understandable lack of experience, having a green pool isn't fun.

Balancing a pool after its gone green can be a challenge. When it gets out of control, a professional pool service can return it to optimal condition. Restoring it might require some continued effort, but a professional will know what to do to make it right.


Whether it’s a malfunctioning pump, an electrical problem or some other repair problem the owner can’t fix, equipment troubles are another reason people hire a pool company. Sometimes, it can even be something like a leak or a crack in the liner.  But, whatever the reason, when the scope of repairs is beyond the homeowner’s expertise, they call a pool pro for help.


A professional pool technician understands the workings of a pool but also understands what can go wrong, why it does, and how to correct it. A pro keeps up on the latest in pool technology and practices, as well, which means the pool owner will get the benefit of those things which apply to his situation.

Because an expert deals with a variety of pools every day, it’s easy for him to develop a pattern of habits which keep a pool in tip-top condition. The result is a clean and beautiful pool.
