How a Home Watch Professional Helps with Pool, Spa, and Outdoor Water Feature Maintenance

June 12, 2024


Hiring a Home Watch professional when you are away for an extended period offers substantial benefits for maintaining pools, spas, and outdoor water features. Their expertise ensures that all aspects of water maintenance are handled efficiently to protect your investment. This post outlines how Home Watch professionals can assist in the care and maintenance of your water features through water quality management, equipment maintenance and seasonal adjustments as part of their service package.

Algae and Debris Control

Algae and storm debris can quickly build up in a pool, spa or water features that’s left alone while you’re away. Your Home Watch professional can help by maintaining proper chemical levels and arranging for regular cleaning, skimming and vacuuming when needed.

Water Quality Management

Home Watch professionals can conduct regular testing of pH levels, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels to ensure the water in your water features remains clean and safe. By preventing issues such as algae growth and calcium buildup, they help maintain the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your water features.

Energy Efficiency

Your Home Watch professional can help optimize energy use by monitoring equipment and energy outputs.

Routine Equipment Inspections and Maintenance

Proper functioning of pumps, filters and heaters is crucial for the longevity of your pool, spa or outdoor water feature. Your Home Watch professional can perform regular inspections to look for potential issues. They can also help or arrange for cleaning and maintenance of filtration systems to ensure operational efficiency, with routine checks that also include plumbing and electrical components often overlooked by homeowners. By discovering small issues early, you can prevent costly repairs and extend the lifespan of your equipment.

Seasonal Maintenance Needs

Different seasons can present varying challenges for maintaining pools, spas and outdoor water features. Your Home Watch professional understands the seasonal demands and can adjust maintenance routines accordingly. In summer months, the focus may be on managing water quality due to higher temperatures. In colder months, winterization such as lowering water levels and addressing plumbing can help protect against freezing temperatures.
