Why should I not DIY my Phoenix pool’s chemical balance?

Many homeowners have hopped aboard the do-it-yourself bandwagon, which has become increasingly popular since the advent of the Internet. Now that individuals can find virtually any type of information online, they question why they would have ask someone else to do it. However, when it comes to your Phoenix pool, trying to maintain the proper chemical balance on your own can result in a variety of problems.

When you keep a regular maintenance schedule with Poolman, you won’t have to worry about any of these issues arising.

  • Poor information: Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. Many of the things you will read on DIY websites will be written by unqualified individuals. When it comes to such a big investment as a pool, do you really want to leave its health and integrity to the recommendations of an unknown helper?
  • Health risks: When you don’t ensure that your pool has the proper chemical balance throughout the year, it could lead to substantial health risks for yourself, your family and any visitors who might go for a dip. For example, incorrect levels can lead to skin rashes, respiratory issues and myriad other risks.
  • Structural integrity: If you try to DIY and end up maintaining chemical levels that are far too high, such as with chlorine, it could begin to deteriorate your pool’s surface and structure.
  • Algae isn’t your friend: Your pool has the potential to be one of the favorite spots for algae to bloom. While you might feel as though these blooms aren’t so bad, they can quickly spread and become a serious problem.
