Maintaining a pool in pristine condition, however, calls for regular care and attention. That’s where professional pool maintenance services like Tortorella come into play. With our meticulous approach and comprehensive steps, we ensure that your pool remains a sparkling haven all around the year. 

In this article, we dive into the art and science of swimming pool maintenance, highlighting what difference a professional maintenance company like Tortorella can make to your pool experience. Here are our ten steps for effective pool cleaning and maintenance:

Step 1: Tile and Waterline Maintenance

The pool’s tiles and surfaces are vulnerable to scale buildup, mineral deposits, and staining over time. We carefully clean and maintain these surfaces to prevent unsightly staining or discoloration. We keep the pool looking attractive and extend the life of its components by using the latest cleaning agents and techniques.

Step 2: Skimming and Surface Cleaning

The first step in Tortorella’s pool maintenance regimen is skimming the surface of the water. This process involves removing leaves, debris, and any other floating matter using our quality skimmer nets. This not only keeps the pool looking inviting but also prevents any debris from clogging of the skimmers and filtration system. Regular surface cleaning ensures that the pool’s water remains clear and free of contaminants.


Step 3: Water Chemistry Balancing

Maintaining proper water chemistry is essential for swimmer comfort and overall pool and spa structure health. Our trained technicians regularly test the  water for chlorine, pH, alkalinity, calcium, stabilizer, metals and TDS. Based on the test results, we adjust your water chemistry to LSI parameters to prevent issues like cloudy water, skin and eye irritation, and the growth of harmful microorganisms

Step 4: Filter Inspection 

The filtration system is the heart of any pool that is responsible for removing impurities and maintaining water circulation. Our professionals routinely inspect the pool’s filter system and perform cleaning of the filter media. This includes cleaning modular cartridges and backwashing of sand or DE filters.  This step ensures the filter’s optimal performance prolongs its lifespan and provides a healthy swimming environment.

Step 5: Equipment Inspection

Regular inspection of pool equipment is crucial for identifying potential problems before they escalate. Our technicians test all pumps, heaters, lights and other components to ensure they are functioning optimally. Addressing minor issues promptly not only avoids costly repairs but also enhances the pool’s efficiency.

Step 6: Vacuuming

Vacuuming the pool and spa floor removes any settled dirt and debris. Our technicians use advanced pool vacuums to efficiently clean the pool and maintain hygiene and clarity. 

Step 7: Brushing and Scrubbing

Thorough brushing is weekly to prevent algae growth and any accumulation of fine dust or debris on the pool’s surfaces. The pool walls, steps, and floor are brushed using pool brushes designed for different surfaces. This step removes any stubborn dirt and debris, preventing them from settling and causing discoloration or texture issues.

Step 8: Adjusting and adding chemicals 

Our trained technicians will test and properly dose your pool to maintain safe and inviting water. Once test results are taken and adjusting is determined chemicals are adjusted to maintain LSI standards and keep the water sanitized and free from harmful pathogens.

Step 9: Monitoring and Reporting

Our commitment to quality service includes thorough monitoring and reporting. We keep meticulous records of water test results, maintenance tasks performed, and any identified issues. This documentation provides both our technicians and pool owners with a clear overview of the pool’s condition and its ongoing maintenance.

Step 10: Seasonal and Specialized Maintenance

Throughout the year, we adapt our maintenance routine based on seasonal changes and specific needs. We offer specialized services such as pool and spa summerizeration and winterizing for the off season, as well as services to address specific concerns like stain removal, leak detection, and equipment upgrades.
