Some residential buildings and almost all hotels in the UAE have an in-built swimming pool. Keeping it clean will not be a challenging task at all if one seeks expert professional help.

Pool maintenance companies offer many services that include maintenance of the water quality and pH level (pH levels should comply with international and national safety standards), cleaning and repair of filter and pool equipment, re-plastering, re-tiling and rectification of leaks.

These companies offer annual cleaning and maintenance contracts, apart from regular services which include weekly pool care, testing the water, vacuuming the pool, backwashing the media filter, emptying the pumps and inspecting equipment. There are also firms that conduct water analysis when the client feels that the water causes skin allergies.

Maintenance companies offer custom-made packages as well depending on the specific needs of the customers. Check the services included in each package and select the one that best suits your requirements. The charge for each package differs according to the services provided.

When choosing a pool maintenance service provider, make sure the workers are qualified and well experienced and they are equipped with modern tools to give you the best value for your money.

Handy Hints
• Select firms that follow international standards
• Firms provide daily, monthly and annual cleaning
• Ensure the firm has well-experienced personnel
