Residents of Rock Hill, South Carolina, enjoy a reasonably mild climate. The city is far enough inland that hurricanes and other tropical storms aren’t much of a concern. Even so, there are some intense storms that sweep through the area from time to time, sometimes bringing severe hail.
In order to ensure your pool’s cleanliness, safety, and longevity, it’s important to conduct some basic pool maintenance. Sometimes, pool care isn’t exactly simple or straightforward. In this post, we’ll address a few of the most common inquiries we hear from pool owners.
Springtime means birds singing, insects chirping, leaves budding, and plants flowering. It also means you will find pollen in your pool and lots of it. This is far from ideal. It will turn your pool an unsightly yellowish or greenish color and is just plain annoying. Fortunately, there is plenty you can do about it. This is your guide to removing pollen from your pool and making sure that it is always summer-ready!
When it’s cold outside, you may go days or even weeks without giving your swimming pool a second thought. As soon as the temperature hits 70, though, you’ll likely start hoping for pool season to begin.
As a homeowner, one of the last things you want to see is water pooling in your yard. Standing water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests; what’s more, it raises the risk of dogs and humans tracking mud through the home.
The residents of Charleston, SC are no strangers to storms and other adverse weather, including intense floods. Flooding is not only a hazard to your home, but potentially to your pool, as well.
There’s nothing more refreshing than diving into a sparkling-clear pool. But what if your pool isn’t so sparkly? Without the right pool maintenance, you may find yourself with water that is visibly dirty; in some cases, this water may even be unsafe and unsanitary.
A ruptured water main can cause all sorts of problems. For one thing, it can leave water pooled on your front lawn; if you don’t act fast, that pooled water can attract pests and bacteria. A water line rupture may also leave your home or business without a clean water supply. In other words, you may need to hire someone to come fix the rupture, and also someone to deliver some emergency drinking water.
Water line breaks don’t happen often, but they do happen… and if you’re ever around to see one, you might be surprised by just how dramatic it can be. Sometimes, a water line break will send a spurt of water erupting up through the ground. Gallons upon gallons of water may be spewed into the air, in what can resemble a small geyser.
