To better understand pool equipment, you must understand that each piece is part of the whole. A weak link poses a problem. If a piece of equipment is malfunctioning, the entire system may still be able to run, however, it will not operate efficiently. There will be a disproportionate drain on the components that are operating at optimal levels. Ultimately, system failure is imminent. Premature pool failures simply mean that more money will come out of your pockets. To prevent pool emergencies, contact Mesa Pool Cleaning Services for seasonal equipment upgrades. A little goes a long way.
The Most Common Equipment Upgrades
Pool pumps and motors are the most common upgrades. We listen to your motors during each pool visit to ensure that everything is working as it should. Pool sanitation systems are the second most common upgrade. Due to increased technology and efficiency, plumbing, heaters and filters are upgraded frequently. Every year, new and improved filters are introduced to the market. Each one promising to be more effective than the next. A great deal of the marketing is just hype. Let a veteran in the business tell you which equipment is worth an upgrade and which can be left to function another day. Lighting is a quick and inexpensive way to upgrade your pool.
Why It Is Advantageous To Upgrade
You want your pool to perform for the duration that you own your home. One way to ensure its longevity is to upgrade the operating equipment whenever necessary. We will agree that newer is not always better. Many of the new products have a large marketing budget to convince you that what you currently have is outdated. They want you to try their product because it’s ‘new and improved’. Mesa Pool Cleaning Services knows better. Let us tell you what is worth your money and what is a waste of valuable resources. Marketing ploys aside, upgrading operating equipment regularly is the best way to prevent premature pool failure.
Fool Proof Maintenance Tips
Upgrades are great, but if you routinely maintenance your pool, you won’t have to spend so much money on seasonal upgrades. In between weekly services, make sure to keep the pool full. The water will evaporate quickly in the Arizona sun. When the pool is not full, the equipment has to work harder to function. Plus the pH becomes imbalanced. An acidic pool is bound for premature failure. Even if you’ve decided to save some money by servicing your own pool, stick to it. Swimming pools require weekly cleanings. This means you must skim, vacuum and maintain the chemical levels consistently.
Equipment Upgrade Costs
We don’t blame you for wanting to know the bottom line. Everyone wants to know, ‘How much is this going to cost me?’ The cost depends on the degree of decline and malfunction. The price of the replacement item is another major factor. Swimming pools are not short-term investments. They are long term expenditures that increase the value of your home and your neighborhood. When you’re invested for the long haul, you know that upgrades and repairs cost less than new installations. When you don’t upgrade your equipment, eventually you will need to shut down your pool or pay for a new installation - you do the math.
