Coachella Valley Pool Maintenance Keeps Your Equipment Safe

Improper chemical levels in your pool can have serious repercussions. Serious enough, that discolored water would be the least of your concerns.

Swimming in a pool with improper chemical levels isn’t safe. It can lead to skin and eye irritation and sickness. Imbalanced chemical levels can also damage your pool pump, filter and heater. Hard water, what happens when your pool contains high levels of calcium and magnesium, causes these issues.

In simple terms, corrosion is what happens when a material begins to deteriorate (a common form of corrosion is rust). And there’s no getting around it: corrosion will affect your pool equipment. It’s a sure thing because your pump, filter and heater are in constant contact with water and chemicals, hence the importance of maintaining your pool’s chemical balance. Too much corrosion is a sign of hard water. You ideally want to avoid this because it will often require new equipment or expensive repairs. Fully preventing corrosion is unrealistic, but regular pool maintenance in the Coachella Valley will manage it.

Scale Buildup

Those unsightly white lines you may have on your pool tiles are because of calcium buildup. Pool tile cleaning includes getting rid of calcium buildup, also known as scale buildup, but unfortunately, it can affect more than just your pool tiles. Scale buildup can also damage your pool equipment. By coating pipes, scale buildup can ruin your pool equipment from the inside. Allowing this to continue will only worsen the issue, like leaving you to deal with a clogged heater.
