Having a swimming pool in Florida is an essential part of everyday living for many homeowners.

Why Does a Pool Turn Green? A chemical imbalance in pool water allows algae to grow and thrive, quickly turning a pool’s water color green. As long as there is adequate chlorine in your pool, algae and other microorganisms will have difficulty growing, but with the constant high temperatures and heavy rains we experience in Florida maintaining the proper chlorine levels can be challenging allowing algae to grow. Periodic shocking of your pool with chlorine is an essential treatment to avoid the potential for algae buildup combined by careful balancing of other chemicals important to maintain a healthy pool.
In Southwest Florida, the extremely hot and humid months don’t seem to end and unfortunately, that’s the type of climate algae blooms will thrive in best. It takes millions of these microscopic organisms to accumulate before you begin to realize you’ve got an algae problem in your pool. Yellow algae is even harder to deal with than green pool water, which is why you should call the expert pool techs at Swim Quest Pool Service.
The Health Risks! Some algae is very hard to spot making it even more important to hire a professional pool technician to properly assess, remove, and restore your pool back to its healthy crystal-clear blue water you’re used to. A green swimming pool may seem like a simple annoyance, but it’s actually a health hazard and the contaminated pool water should be immediately cleaned and treated, as blue-green algae, commonly known as black algae, can contain E. Coli causing humans or pets to become sick.
The easiest way to keep your saltwater pool clean and healthy is to let the salt water pool experts at Swim Quest Pool Service do the work for you. Our skilled pool technicians will ensure your salt system chlorine generator is free from damaging mineral deposits that can form and build up on the inside of your salt cell allowing your system to perform optimally and at it’s full capacity. As your pool conditions change throughout the year, our expert pool technicians will adjust the salt content as needed to maintain the perfect balance.
Why you should periodically drain your pool. Of course we all want our swimming pool to look great with beautiful clear and clean water, but maintaining a healthy swimming environment from chemical build-up, underwater stains, pool surface repairs or removing waste from your pool all require a swimming pool drain and refill. Here’s a list of a few of the reasons to call the team at Swim Quest Pool Services to drain your pool;
Why clean your pool tiles? So they last longer!
Proper cleaning of pool tiles and grout on a regular basis helps to prevent your tiles from cracking or becoming permanently discolored or stained and grout from prematurely degrading.

Our acid washing services consist of completely draining your pool or spa, followed by a thorough scrubbing of the interior walls and tile, after which a concentrated muriatic acid wash is applied removing the top layer of the plaster surface, similar to the chemical peel procedures dermatologists apply to skin. The acid washing process restores the beauty and luster of your pool or spa by removing calcium deposits, algae blooms and even more difficult stains, like black algae, which can seep deep into plaster.
Acid washing is an ideal option for homeowners who no matter which chemicals they use or how much scrubbing they do, still can’t get their pool or spa to look clean and stain free. Call Swim Quest Pool Service today to schedule an acid washing and pool plaster cleaning service to:
