Having a pool is great. It is a place to relax and have fun. It gives you a reason to invite friends and family over and it also raises the value of your Delray Beach property. But as all pool owners know, having a pool does take a fair amount of work. To properly care for a swimming pool you need to:
- • Check and clean baskets
- • Inspect the pH level and adjust when necessary
- • Vacuum the pool
- • Skim the surface
- • Examine for leaks
- • Add specialty chemical
- • Clean pool filter
- • Shock the pool when necessary
- • Review the working condition of equipment
- • And a great deal more
The daily ones are easy enough as they take very little time but other tasks can take significantly more time or may require technical knowledge that you don’t have.
Whether you are looking for a one-time inspection to check the overall health of your pool and its systems or you are looking for a monthly maintenance service, Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. is here for you.

Best Time of Year
Let’s be honest about it, for most people in Delray Beach, summer is definitely the best time of year. So, whether that means a weekend trip to the beach, regular family barbecues in the park or simply lounging around enjoying some refreshing drinks with friends, this sun-filled season needs to be enjoyed to the maximum. However, a summer in Delray Beach is not really a summer without getting the most out of your swimming pool. Irrespective of the size of your swimming pool, it should be the highlight of your activities in the warmest months of the year. But, there’s no doubt that if you want your pool to be at its best in the summer, then you need to ensure that all the required maintenance work is undertaken well in advance.
Pool Maintenance Excellence
In general, we recommend that our clients have the required maintenance work carried out on their swimming pool during the months of the year when the pool is least active. For most of Delray Beach pool owners this is usually in March or early April, before the busy summer season really begins. The cleaning, chemical balancing and pool equipment maintenance service that we provide is so important for a summer of fun in the water for you, your family and friends.
Common Pool Problems
Having spent so much time in the pool maintenance business, we have noticed certain questions being asked and concerns risen over and over again. For your convenience, we thought it would be best to outline some the common pool problems that can be regulated and resolved when you acquire our professional pool maintenance services.
My Pool is Green
If your pool’s water has lost its crystal-clear quality and has been replaced by murky, moldy-looking water, it is most likely due to a lack of sanitizer. When you get in touch with Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc., a member of our team will be happy to test the sanitizer and if the levels are low, figure out what an appropriate dose would be. A green hue could also be caused by metals. We will try adding a metal inhibitor product if the sanitizer test comes back negative.
My Pool is Cloudy
Before a pool goes green, it is likely very cloudy, which can easily be fixed by adding some sanitizer. If the pool was green, you shocked it and then the pool turned cloudy, the cloudiness is likely caused by the dead algae in suspension. Getting rid of these suspended particles isn’t easy. You will need to shock the pool again, add a clarifier and then vacuum the pool’s floor. Of course, if this doesn’t work, then there is likely a problem with your sand filter. If a simple shock doesn’t fix the problem, consult with the pool maintenance professionals at Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. and we will quickly figure out what the root of the issue is.
Why Is My Pool’s Pump Squealing?
If your pool’s pump is making loud noises, it is most likely that the motor bearings that got wet from a pump seal is leaking into the motor. Motor bearings can be repaired for a minimal rate if Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. is called immediately. Typically, the only thing that we can do when a motor gets too loud is replace it.
I Think My Pool is Leaking
A leak is very difficult to detect. And if there is a leak, there is a lot of investigation that goes into it. How long have you had the leak? Does the pool leak more or less when the backwash valve is on? If you suspect that there is a leak in your pool, don’t hesitate to contact us immediately. We will conduct a pressure test to see if the pool is indeed leaking and depending on the results, we will then conduct some dye tests around all the common problem areas to prove that everything is in good condition.
My Pool is Stained
The last thing most Delray Beach pool owners expect to see in their pool is staining on the walls and floor. After all, your pool is full of chlorinated water leaving it impossible for staining to happen—right?
However, that’s not the case. If you see mysterious brown stains on your pool’s wall or floor, get in touch with a pool cleaning service. Your stains are likely caused by high mineral levels that our pool maintenance expects will be able to take care of quickly through the use of a pH decreaser.
Pool cleaners and maintenance pros are going to be your best friends as a pool owner in Delray Beach!
Clogged Pool Filters
The Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. gets a surprising amount of calls in Delray Beach regarding clogged pool filters! The first thing we’d like to say is: if your filter is clogged, it’s doing its job.
Your pool may have been exceptionally dirty at the time, but you want the debris to head to your filter, otherwise it’s going to stay floating around on your pool’s surface just waiting to get inhaled into a swimmer’s mouth or trapped in their hair.
When your filter gets clogged, you will need to hire pool cleaners to clear it out. Luckily for you, our team can get the job done for around $60 and your pool will be swimmer-ready in no time.

How Often Should I Drain My Pool?
Although most swimming pools in Delray Beach come with a built-in filtration system, the fact of the matter is that if you want to make sure that your pool is operating at an optimal level for longer, then you need to make sure that it is drained out and refilled from time to time. But why is this the case? When should you do it? How frequently? And should you do it yourself or get the help of a trained team of professionals. We will provide answers to all these questions below.
Why Should I Drain My Pool? Given the unique temperatures that we occasionally experience here in Delray Beach, it should come as no surprise to hear that your swimming pool can be affected by the weather it is exposed to. As swimming pool industry experts, we recommend that you should replace your pool’s water every five to seven years. The reason for this is simple: As pool water is subject to harsh chemicals, a challenging environment and the build-up of biological remains including dead skin, oils and hair, the reality is that if it is not changed at least every seven years, it will no longer be able to be effectively treated and could lose all its good. On top of that, pool water that hasn’t been drained and is unmaintained can also damage the surface of your pool, as well as contributing to harsh environmental reactions like hard water and calcium and mineral deposits.
When Should I Drain My Pool? As was mentioned above, all in-ground pools should be completely drained, and the water replaced every five to seven years. Exactly how often comes down to your pool’s maintenance schedule, how frequently it is used and what kind of environment the pool is in. At Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc., we recommend that pools should be drained during mild seasons to prevent unnecessary sun, heat or moisture damage to the pool surfaces and filtration systems. It is also important to remember that pools should never be drained for cleaning, as this can be done underwater. Similarly, pools should not be drained after significant rain or storms as that will affect the bottom of your pool.
Should I Use a Professional Pool Draining Service? The short and simple answer to this question is yes. Attempting to drain your swimming pool independently is a very challenging task and one that should not be attempted by those who don’t know what they’re doing. Failing to hire a professional to drain your pool could see it suffer irreparable damage. Similarly, a botched draining job can often end up costing you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars more in repairs than would have been the case if you had hired a professional pool draining team like Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. to do the work for you. So, while it might seem like a solid business decision in the short-term, the reality of the situation could prove to be very different. Don’t make this mistake and call us today!
Protect Your Investment
If you’re the owner of an inground pool, it’s likely you’ve paid between $30,000 and $200,000 for that pool. It may even be the largest investment you’ve made in your home. That’s why it only makes sense to maintain your investment. You can expect to spend between $125 and $200 for a season tune-up, with weekly or monthly services as low as $90.
Pool maintenance costs are minimal when you think about how much you paid to install your pool originally. A pool that isn’t properly maintained will become unusable quickly. Not only that, but it can become physically damaged and require pricey repairs. Did you know, that if the hydrostatic relief valve at the bottom of your pool isn’t used properly, that water pressure can build up and push your entire pool right out of the ground? Scary.
When you invest in pool cleaning services with Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. for your Delray Beach pool, you’ll not only have a beautiful clean pool to swim in, you’ll save yourself money in the long-run.
Let’s be honest about it, having a pool is a luxury that you have, most likely, worked very hard to afford.
