10 Dec Pool service technicians and what they do
A pool is not a pool if it does not look enticing enough to want you to run up and take a jump into it when you see it, but it takes some effort to get it like that and keep it that way, so hence proper care is absolutely necessary to keep the swimming pool running well as well as nice and clean.
Now, natural water bodies, such as rivers and lakes are naturally clean and beautiful as long as harmful human activities don’t pollute it but with swimming pools, there is an actual need for human intervention to maintain and service it because there is a less body of water and the natural elements cant keep it clean, so we need to use mechanical equipment as well as someone to keep an eye on it.
That’s why we have pool service technicians to take care of these things for us. We can obviously do everything ourself if we want to but it can become a daunting task.
What is a pool service technician and what do they do?
A pool service technician is a professional provider of pool services in whose hands lie the responsibility of keeping a swimming pool clean and the equipment running well and fit for use, the goal is to keep the water germ free to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases and to keep the water crystal clear.
Their job includes not just cleaning the pool but also servicing and maintaining all equipment used in pools such as filters and pumps as well as boards, pool covers, etc. While many people clean their pools at home usually homeowners can get into a predicament if the maintenance isn’t done for a while as well if there is something faulty with the equipment.
A simple tool like the skimmer is used mechanically by a technician to remove dirt from the pool.
Nowadays, an ‘automated pool cleaner‘ is also used, which, as the name suggests, is an automatic device for cleaning pools: it is a vacuum cleaner that cleans the sediments and dirt in the swimming pool, and as with other automatic devices, this device too decreases the need for human effort in the whole cleaning process and is less time-consuming.
Some other services carried out by a technician
A pool service technician’s other works include testing the overall water quality and the pH balance because a stable pH balance is required to be maintained in the pool; ensuring the proper cleaning and servicing of water filters and equipment such as dehumidifiers and pumps used in the pools; keeping a check on pool walls and floors for corrosion or leakage and repairing it when necessary.
Since the entire responsibility of hygiene maintenance of the pool is on his shoulders, a pool technician, basically, has to do everything that forms part of keeping a swimming pool clean and hygienic, which includes hygiene maintenance of the swimmers, keeping the hygiene standards is part of his job.
