Pool Draining and Refill
The pool water needs to be emptied for either regular cleaning work or to enable repair of the pool efficiently.
Bossneo is at your disposal to cater to all pool cleaning and maintenance services at your doorstep. Depending on the intensity of the pool repair work, our technicians will decide to either empty the entire pool water or to drain just a part of it to facilitate the repair work. The pool draining process is done best when it is handled by experts. Rather than experimenting by oneself, pool-owners should leave the job to professionals like us, as any minor mishandling can cause more damage to the pool and simply lead to spending more money.
Why Pool Draining Is Important
For a thorough filtration and cleansing process of the pool, the pool needs to be drained and refilled. Bossneo recommends its clients to replace the water of the pool every 5 to 8 years to maintain the freshness of the pool water and keep it unadulterated. The frequency of draining your pool also depends on other factors, like how often the pool is being used. Dirty water can make you sick and cause skin problems. The chemically imbalanced murky water can produce algae, deposit calcium on the walls of the pool, and develop foul odor making it absolutely unpleasant. Moreover, substances like dead skin, hair, oil, etc, dissolved in the pool water interfere with the filtration system and fail to allow it to perform its function optimally.
When the murky water gets too old, say about 5 to 8 years, it starts to damage the plaster of the pool. This is due to the unnecessary mineral deposits that affect the tiled walls which then settle down in tiny crevices of the pool. Bossneo highly recommends cleaning the water of the pool as it is economical to run a draining process every now and then, rather than waiting to fix the pool when the damage is already done.
We cannot reiterate on the fact that how important it is to seek expert help for the draining process and undertake it only when it is necessary at the end of the given interval. If the correct protocol is not followed, the harm done to the pool and yourself could be manifold.
How We Drain Your Pool
There are many requisites that we keep in mind before proceeding with the actual pool drainage process. For instance, the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels must be checked and if it is found to be too high, it is an indication that the pool needs to be drained. Another factor that we check is the ideal temperature. If the draining process is scheduled on a hot summer day, the pool walls could get damaged due to exposure to the hot sun. Therefore, our technicians check the weather conditions and only then proceed with the draining activity. We also see to it that the chemicals such as chlorine and pH levels in the water are not too high. A chlorine neutralizer can be used to speed up the process.
Another important component to consider is to have a water dispersal plan in place. This includes determining where the pool water will be directed before it is actually pulled out. We also see to it that all automatic pool equipment running on a timer are turned-off before the water is pumped out, to avoid hindrances during the dispersal process.
The hydrostatic valve located at the bottom of the surface of the pool is opened and the process of pumping out the water begins. Once the water is drained to the appropriate level required, we start the repair and maintenance work immediately. We do not allow your empty pool to be exposed to the air for too long, as this may cause damage. All the damage work is fixed within one week and the pool is refilled with water once again.
To refill the pool, we attach one or more hose to the water supply and allow the pool to patiently fill itself with water. The amount of water to be filled must be accurate. A slight overfill works, as we take into consideration the loss of water due to some evaporation, especially in the sprawling Dubai weather.
The last step is to chemically balance the pool to make it safe, clean, and comfortable to swim again. Adding too much chlorine can cause irritation to the skin and eyes, while too little chlorine will serve no purpose and not aid in killing bacteria and other contamination. We also adhere to the rule of adding the right quantity of pH to the water. Too much pH makes the water cloudy and leaves deposits on the wall, while too little pH can lead to corrosion of the pool equipment and make the water black which is unfit for swimming.
