Your home pool provides you and your family with a great deal of relaxation, therapy and entertainment during the long hot summer months. For this very reason, staying on top of the routine maintenance of your pool is critical to the overall appearance, safety and health of your pool. In addition, if you do not preform pool maintenance regularly, then at one point you are going to find yourself stressed out and faced with a larger task of cleaning, vacuuming, and servicing your pool. Further, regular maintenance of your swimming pool will extend its life expectancy and contribute to additional years of service from your home pool.

Pool filter maintenance is one of the most important maintenance services that every pool needs. Your pool filter helps to keep the water in your pool bright blue, crisp and clear of dirt and debris. Your filter also keeps other contaminants out of the water, which can ultimately lead to skin problems or other problems as well. Since our skin is remarkably absorbent, when swimming in your pool, if you do not have a properly functioning filtration system, then these contaminants are able to be absorbed into your body. Thus, the importance of both your pool chemicals and your pool filter that work together to alleviate any potential health problems.
