Pool Draining Service – Pool professionals in the Phoenix Area recommend draining your pool every 2 to 3 years depending on chemical and mineral levels. Has it been years since you drained your pool?
Older pool water will have high total dissolved solids (TDS), high calcium and mineral saturation, and may be over stabilized costing you hundreds of extra dollars in chemical costs and pool problems. Additionally, these common pool problems caused by old water will contribute to algae formation, staining, and calcium deposits in your pool.
Over time, bacteria and other organic materials build up in your swimming pool’s water, lessening the efficacy of the chemicals you use to keep the pool water safe for swimming. This is why pool water needs draining every two to three years. Failure to do so leads to recurring algae issues and cloudy pool water.
You may also need to drain your pool after a particularly bad algae outbreak. If your pool water looks more like a swamp than a sparkling oasis for more than a day or two, you may need to drain it completely, scrub the walls and tiles, and refill it.
Deckhand Pool Care drains your pool according to your area’s guidelines. If requested, our tech then performs a chlorine wash and pool tile cleaning, or acid wash if necessary. Next, the technician refills the pool, starts the pump to get the water circulating, and adds the right balance of chemicals. He or she then allows the pump to continue circulating before testing the water to ensure proper balance. If needed, the technician adjusts the chemicals.
