Rainstorm Pool Maintenance Repair Tarzana

5 Post-Rain Pool Maintenance Cleaning Tips

  1. If there are trees in your backyard and leaves have fallen into the pool make sure to skim them all from the surface. Also, check the filter baskets and remove any debris and leaves from there as well.
  2. A rainstorm combined with heavy winds also blows all sorts of nasty things into the swimming pool. Make sure to brush the walls above the water line that will also remove any of the nasty build up.
  3. Shocking your pool will eliminate any of the contaminants that got into the water potentially making it unsafe for swimming.
  4. Check the water chemistry levels and adjusted back to normal. A light rainstorm should not affect the safe water chemistry levels too much but definitely need checking after heavier storms.
  5. It’s a good idea to check the pool pump and also filter. Debris and other contaminants clog filters and backwashing will help fix circulation issues.

Be prepared before the rains and winds arrive. Things get blown around laying near the pool when winds arrive and need storing indoors. That includes floats, furniture and other things that can end up in the water.

From replacing filters, stopping leaks, fixing pumps and keeping water heated these 3 areas have common issues over time. Even though some of the below common problem areas won’t destroy your pool overnight they over time will lead to equipment breakdown.

Swimming Pool Repairs Tarzana CA

3 Common Swimming Pool Repairs for In Ground Pools

  1. Pool Filter Replacement
  2. Skimmer Leaks
  3. Pool Heater Not Heating Water

Swimming pool filter issues usually arise because the filter has gone past its life-cycle. If backwashing more often to keep the water clear it’s likely your pool filter is old and needs replacing. The three common types of pool filters are Cartridge, Sand and D.E. filters. Cartridge filters last around 5 years, sand filters 7 years and D.E. filters last about 10 years.

Pool skimmer leaks often are the cause of leaking water. Concrete pools have an area of separation where the skimmer is. Vinyl pools are subject to leaks due to a skimmer faceplate that has a leak due to a bad gasket. Plaster mixes and putty will most times fix the leak but for more serious issues have a pool leak detection performed to find the leak.

Pool heater problems are plentiful and so are the reasons. It’s usually a problem with a filter that needs cleaning or an impeller that has become clogged up. Both issues are easy fixes but in some instances, a problem with the pool heater settings are the reason. Fortunately, modern pool heater systems will have a readout of anything that is preventing the heater from turning on and warming up the water.

Basic Pool Cleaning Service Fall Season


Basic Pool Cleaning Service options are available to Tarzana homeowners for the Fall Season. Summer has come and gone and so has many of the hot days, outdoor parties, and the sound of family and friends splashing. It is easier to think about sparkling, clean water when there are kids in bathing suits with blow up floaties and swim noodles in their arms. Maintenance to keep your backyard oasis clean and inviting for family and friends is not just for Summer though. Even though pumpkin lattes and jack-o-lanterns and new Autumn sweaters are top of mind, a clean pool is still vital for the health and beauty of your Summertime outside friend. And, here in the Valley hot days still come to call, and taking a dip can still make it onto your to-do list. We have Fall solutions that basic pool cleaning service and maintenance can offer.

Basic Pool Cleaning Service Fall Tarzana

Tips for Basic Pool Cleaning Service in the Fall for Tarzana Homeowners

  • Basic Pool Cleaning Service plans are available for off-season months, like Fall. These services will keep your water clean, clear and free of debris that the Santa Ana winds and seasonal changes bring. It will also allow for those every so often hot Valley days when a backyard splash is a welcome relief.
  • Chemical levels change when Summer turns into Fall. You need more chemicals in the Summer because of water evaporation and use. Lower chemicals are now needed as the outdoor temperature lowers, and swimming becomes less frequent. The chemical chemistry needs monitoring after the Summer to Fall transition. Basic Pool Cleaning Service plans include this maintenance.

Wind and Weather and your Tarzana Pool

  • The San Fernando Valley may not have the kind of changing leaves that other parts of the US do, but leaves and other foliage are still an issue in October and November. The Santa Ana winds, as well as Seasonal changes, can clutter and pollute the outdoor water. A Basic Pool Cleaning Service can help with not just leaf skimming, but also vacuuming the bottom of the pool, and brushing the sidewalls clean. They can also keep up with the emptying of baskets, skimmers, pumps, and backwash filters.
  • Changes in weather and fallen debris can overwork filter systems. Overflow from baskets and missed skims will clog the system. Now is a good time to have your filter checked, cleaned, repaired, or replaced, if needed. Our specialists can decide what your filter needs before it is an urgent problem. They can also decide if reducing the use of your filter during the cooler months is an option for your home.
  • Fall means less backyard activity, shorter days and kids being back in school. You use your pool less in the Fall. The pool pump that usually runs for 8 hours can be reduced to 4-6 hours instead. This will help to lower your energy bills. That said, we highly recommend that any change in pump use be discussed during a maintenance visit with your basic pool cleaning scheduled service. We are here to help you save money, but we also want to make sure an algae problem or any other issue occurs.
