Swimming Pool Maintenance



Every owner of a swimming pool in their house or villa deserves to enjoy splashing around in a clean pool on hot summer days on the French Riviera.

After all, no one wants to swim in a pool infested with germs, bacteria, and potential illnesses.

Your pool needs a dedicated professional committed to the health and safety of your loved ones. At Clean Nett Riviera, we offer you pool cleaning services that help protect you and your family. Our pool professionals are highly skilled, trained, and licensed to handle the cleaning process and make being a pool owner enjoyable again.

What Happens When You Don’t Keep Your Pool Clean?

It would be a shame to have a stunning pool in your house that isn’t maintained properly. More than a passing annoyance, an unclean pool can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria that can cause many health issues, including exacerbating chronic conditions.

Additionally, an unclean pool can:

  • Leave stains on the surface of your pool and irritate your eyes
  • Break down pool filters and pumps, causing components to malfunction
  • Contain a wide range of bacteria and viruses, leading to hospitalization
  • Cause significant health problems, including ear, nose, and throat infections

Other factors, including rain, airborne microorganisms, and synthetic oils and lotions, can lessen the quality of your pool water. For these reasons, regular pool cleaning and care can help you prevent harmful pollutants from entering and remaining in your pool.

Signs You Need a Professional Pool Cleaning Service

Keeping your pool clean is a combination of attention to detail and having the right tools to do the job. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or resources to devote to sufficient pool care or knows the indicators that cleaning is overdue. When it comes to the upkeep of your pool, the water will give you several visual signs that it’s time to hire professionals to help.

Discolored Water

One of the most overt signs that your pool needs to be cleaned is water discoloration. When your water isn’t treated properly or frequently with the right combination of products, the water can develop algae or other contaminants that affect the color. Whether your pool is green, brown, or yellow, any color other than clear is a significant sign that professional cleaning is necessary.

Bugs, Bugs, and More Bugs

Bacteria aren’t the only thing that could be living in your pool. Bugs tend to find their way around the water and sometimes accidentally fall in. No one likes to look in their pool and see bugs having a field day. Insects like mosquitoes, water beetles, gnats, tiny red pool mites, and more can end up in your pool, creating an unclean and unsanitary environment. The best thing you can do is call one of our professionals to get rid of these critters once and for all.

Irritation to Eyes and Skin

Minor skin and eye irritation is fairly normal if you’re swimming and like to keep your eyes open underwater. However, you could get a serious skin condition called “hot tub rash” from unclean water that lingers on the skin long-term. The germ Pseudomonas aeruginous is a common cause of negative reactions to pool water, especially when water isn’t treated properly or chemically balanced.


Scaling is the build-up of inorganic material found on pool tile, stone, fiberglass, and other hard surfaces. Normally, scaling is an indication that the calcium, pH, and alkaline levels in your pool are too high. Having your pool professionally cleaned can help mitigate these kinds of issues.

Bubbles or Foam in the Water

Bubbles or foam on the surface of your pool water might look fun, but this simply means your pool has strong surface tension caused by:

  • Contaminates like sunblock, lotion, and/or soap.
  • A high concentration of surface bacteria and germs.
  • A chemical imbalance (having too many or too few chemicals).





                  Why is pool water testing important?

Pool water testing is also critical because it helps the water and chlorine to remain non-toxic from external environmental conditions. If the proper chemical levels are not properly maintained, the chlorine can become unhealthy to the skin, eyes, and internals if swallowed by swimmers in the water.

N.B What happens if you don't add chemicals to your pool?

Even from a health standpoint, it is simply not safe to     operate a pool without some added “chemicals” to combat bacteria and contaminants in the water. A pool without chemicals is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, viruses, and parasites.

How Often Should I Have My Pool Cleaned?

We recommend cleaning your pool at least once a week, especially during the summer when it gets used most. This includes using the proper tools and adequate chemicals to treat your pool and maintain the correct pH levels.
