Some more information about the pool services we offer
Whether you use your pool once in a month or every day, it’s essential to keep it clean and well-maintained. Swimming pools are notorious breeding grounds for bacteria and other harmful microorganisms, causing illness in swimmers. This can result in negative publicity, legal action, and a loss of business for company pool owners.
Sidepost’s pool maintenance and cleaning service offer a cost-effective solution to resident and commercial pool owners. We’ll take care of all the dirty work, removing debris, leaves, and other contaminants from your pool for all to enjoy. Furthermore, we’ll even offer advice on maintaining your pool and keeping it clean throughout the season.
General advice on how to keep your pool water crystal clear

Simply provide us with a water sample for analysis and we’ll provide you potential solutions and preventative recommendations. This will help you save money on expensive pool treatments, and you’ll be able to maintain your pool with ease.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is it important to keep a pool clean?
A: The primary reason to clean your pool is to prevent the growth of algae and bacteria. These can not only make your pool look dirty, but they can also be a health hazard. For commercial establishments like leisure centres and hotels, a dirty pool can result in dire consequences.
Q: How often should a pool be cleaned?
A: To ensure your pool is free from contaminants and looking its best, you should clean it at least once a week. However, depending on the size of your pool and how often it's used, you may need to clean it more frequently. A dirty pool can potentially cause health problems, so it's better to err on the side of caution and clean it more often than less.
Q: What is the white stuff on the bottom of my pool?
A: It's fairly common for our clients to see a white substance on the bottom of their pools, assuming it's paint flakes. This is usually calcium deposits from the water and is perfectly harmless. However, it may also be biofilm, a film of bacteria, or other microorganisms. If you're unsure, contact us today, and we can take a look for you.
Q: Why does my pool get dirty so quickly?
A: If you're cleaning your pool frequently, you may have an issue with your filter. Pool filters can become clogged with dirt and debris, which can then cause your pool to become dirty more quickly. The best way to combat this is to backwash your filter regularly.
Q: How long does it take to remove cloudy water from my pool?
A: It usually takes around 2-3 days for the chlorine to work its magic and clear up your pool. For pool owners using a clarifier, you need to run your filter throughout the day and night and ensure your water chemistry is balanced.
Q: What happens if my pool cleaner is unavailable?
A: If your pool cleaner is unavailable last-minute, we'll dispatch one of our other pool cleaners to your location asap. We understand that it can be disruptive to have a change and your schedule, so we'll do our best to minimise the inconvenience.
Q: How do I make changes to my pool cleaning schedule?
A: Simply log in to your Sidepost account and make the necessary changes to your schedule. If you need to cancel a pool cleaning, we ask that you do so at least 24 hours in advance. This gives us enough time to reassign your slot to another customer.
Q: Do I have to be at home when my pool cleaners arrive?
A: It's pretty standard for our clients to be at work or running errands while we clean their pools. We understand that life can be hectic and you may not have time to wait around for us. Just leave a key out for us, and we'll let ourselves in.
Q: How long does it take for a pool cleaner to clean a pool?
A: Pool cleaning is a straightforward process that doesn't take any longer than an hour. A small pool in good condition generally takes only 20 minutes to clean. Dirtier pools or larger pools that are regularly cleaned take approximately 45 minutes.
Q: Why choose Sidepost?
