The Benefits of Keeping Your Pool Clean

Have you ever been to a residential or community pool and thought, "wow this pool looks disgusting"? What happens to your emotions? You were just excited to go for a swim, and that excitement turned to disappointment. Unfortunately, we've heard countless horror stories of this very thing happening.

In this blog, we discuss the importance of keeping your pool clean and how it can affect more than just your ability to go for a swim.

Ready When You Want to Use it

Whether you have a pool in your backyard, or you've moved into a community with a pool, what were your expectations? To be able to go for a swim when you want to, right? A swimming pool is a major investment and you're not getting the most out of your investment if you can't use it willingly. Even if it's a community pool, there are probably fees connected to your ability to use the facilities.

Keeping your pool clean at all times will be convenient if you have a pool party or small gathering of friends. You won't have to scramble to make sure the pool is clean or try to call a pool service company at the last second because it will be ready for use!


Swimming in dirty pool water can be extremely detrimental to your health. If you're not taking the right steps to clean your pool, bacteria can accumulate and create a hazard.

Are you familiar with the term Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI)? This is when a person becomes ill from swimming in contaminated water, including pool water. Things such as RWI are avoidable, just make sure your pool water is clean before you go for a swim.

Visually Pleasing

If a pool is dirty, it most likely looks dirty, which isn't just a turn off for people who want to swim, but for anyone who even looks at the pool! There's nothing quite like relaxing poolside with a cocktail in-hand on a glorious Sunday afternoon. But is it as relaxing if you see algae and bacteria growing in the pool or on the pool walls? My guess is no. Studies show that looking at something clean and aesthetically pleasing can help you relax and relieve stress, and a clean pool can have the same effect!
