There is a major difference in the amount of training and experience between an average pool owner and the technicians at Marin Pool Service.

Every pool in San Rafael is different and requires specific care. The Marin Pool Services staff are trained in Personalized Pool Service so they can answer questions and fix problems associated with your specific pool.

Our technicians at Marin Pool Service are experts in keeping your pools and spas clean and clear. The chemistry of pool water can quickly become unbalanced and setting that balance right again takes knowledge and experience. Our technicians have that knowledge and experience and will monitor and maintain your pool water for you. They are also trained in replacing the various parts associated with pools such as heaters, salt cells and filters which are very costly to deal with on your own. Let our technicians make the choices of the best supplies to maintain your pool.

If you are taking care of your pool on your own, you will have to store the necessary chemicals. The problem is that, if not used effectively, these chemicals will hit their shelf life. The longer they sit around, the less effective they are ,which means you have to use more to get the same results. This costs you money and time. Allowing Marin Pool Service technicians in San Rafael to deal with that eliminates these problems.

We’ll also take care of the physical cleaning too. Marin Pool Service technicians will remove the dirt from you pool with a vacuum, keep the tile looking new by brushing it and taking care of the sweep so that the pool continues to look great between visits.

If your pool does need more than the normal maintenance, our people will let you know and have the problems taken care of. Marin Pool Service will have our technicians deliver and install any part that needs to be replaced or fix anything that needs repairing in your San Rafael pool.

There is no need to make multiple trips to your pool store if you have a problem. The staff there is not usually trained or experienced as well as our technicians and may not be able to properly help you and with your specific needs. At Marin Pool Service, we can save you the hassle, time and money you would otherwise spend dealing with your local pool store.

It might seem like hiring a professional pool service costs more than doing it yourself, but in the long run you will save money. Plus the relief of letting Marin Pool Services take care of your San Rafael pool eliminates all the hassle and aggravation. That alone is worth the cost.

Marin Pool Service guarantees their work in San Rafael and is sure you will be completely satisfied.

Weekly Pool Service San Rafael

At Marin Pool Service, we want to communicate with you weekly. We put together a personal Weekly Pool Service to help you in keeping your pool looking great. We don’t like to call our service pool cleaning because it is not just checking the water and removing debris. We do preventative maintenance, inspections and changing out materials to keep your pool or spa running as well as it possibly can. We also try to communicate in whatever manner is most comfortable for you. Marin Pool Service will send you information either through our technicians, by email, phone or written letter.

San Rafael Pool Cleaning

Pool cleaning can be one of those things that often gets put off from your to-do list. Not taking care of your pool in a regular and timely fashion can be detrimental to its appearance and safety. Algae grows and turns the water murky. Bacteria and other harmful bugs multiply. Don’t let your San Rafael pool go to waste. especially when Marin Pool Service can take care of it all for you. We will balance the water chemistry and clean the pool. Our technicians are train to adjust the pH and alkalinity of your pool water to sanitize it and destroy and keep ugly algae and unhealthy bacteria from growing.

San Rafael Pool Water Testing

Pools in San Rafael need their water tested. Checking the water makes sure that all the chemical levels are in the right place to maintain pool safety. Marin Pool Service technicians are Certified Pool Inspectors and are knowledgeable of county pool health codes. Let us keep up with all the rules and regulations for you. The key to keeping pools safe is maintaining chlorine, pH and alkalinity levels. To do that you must use chemicals and each chemical has a specific set of legal guidelines as to how it can be used and stored. We are trained in all legal and safety aspects of pool maintenance.

San Rafael Solar Pool Heater Service, Repair & Replacement

Utility costs in San Rafael are skyrocketing so normal methods of heating your pool water are becoming less attractive. One way to heat your pool water in a cost effective manner is to use a solar pool heater. The solar heater uses no electricity or gas and leaves a much smaller carbon footprint. It hooks up to your pump system and the pump continues to circulate the water like normal. It just happens to also pump the water through the solar heater when it is turned on. No added power needed. Of course, we service and replace these solar pool heaters for you.

San Rafael Salt Water Pool Service

Salt water pools are more expensive to install but are easier to maintain. Installing one can be seen as a long term investment because the cost of maintaining them is lower than a standard chlorine pool. One misconception about salt water pools is that they do not use chlorine. They do have chlorine, but it is added to the pool through the use of a generator that converts the salt into chlorine. This is why the pools are so much easier to maintain. The chlorine source is already there so you don’t have to add any.

San Rafael Pool Filter Service, Cleaning, Repair & Replacement

Pool filters are another important part of your pool’s cleaning system. Without them, the pools in San Rafael would not be so clean and pretty. Pool filters work by sending pressurized water through the filter to removed debris. There are multiple filter types but the most common are pleated, grid and sand filters. We at Marin Pool Service will clean and maintain any filter system you have in your pool.

San Rafael Pool Pump Service, Cleaning, Repair & Replacement

The pump is the most important and expensive part of your pool’s cleaning system. Marin Pool Service will keep up the maintenance on your pump and check it regularly and repair it as necessary. If interested, we can also perform an energy audit on the pump you currently use, to show you recommendations on saving money.

San Rafael Hot Tub Service

Hot tubs have multiple health benefits. They help you to relax and drain away the stresses of the day. Removing your aches and pains also helps you get a better night’s sleep. Reducing stress and getting better sleep are excellent health boosts. Marin Pool Service can help you keep your spa healthy and clean with weekly cleanings.
