When you are building a new home and know that you want to have a pool you should keep a few things in mind. First is the placement of the pool in the back yard. It’s important that there are no utilities in that area such as electric service, sewer, waterline, and sprinkler mains. The next consideration is going to be elevation. Read More...
Fall can be a sad time for pool owners as we think about shutting down our pools and hunkering in for winter. It can be easy to neglect your pool once the swimming season is over, but it is important to resist the urge to ignore your pool before it has been winterized and closed. Read More...
How is the pool installer going to support you after the pool is complete? Will the equipment and systems be user friendly and will you be able to be comfortable with them? What is the process of testing your water and how do you know you are doing it correctly? Read More...
An automatic safety cover is probably the most common addition to any fiberglass pool. We install an auto cover on over half of the fiberglass pools we build.

The main features of an auto cover is that they keep the pool safe, increase energy efficiency, and keep the pool clean. The not so obvious benefit is that an auto cover can also serve as your winter cover saving you the cost of a winter mesh cover. It also means you don’t have to drill the holes in your deck that are needed for a winter cover. If you choose to go this route (and it really is a great way to go) there are a few things you will need to keep in mind and pay attention to through the fall closing and the winter season.

On the surface filling up your pool after winter and getting ready to open does not seem like a tough thing, and it's not, but you do need to keep a couple things in mind. Read More...
Why do people purchase salt chlorinators?
I honestly think that most are sold because of hype. Misinformation by both pool "guys" and pool owners alike flood the internet and make these systems out to be the "magic bullet" to pool maintenance. There are people that have been told and or read that a salt pool takes care of itself and they don't have to test it!!! That simply is not the case. These systems are handy and convenient in that you don't have to purchase chlorine. Most of our customers are buying a 50 pound bucket of chlorine every 2 years so it's not like that is a huge chore anyway. Spending $1800 on a system to not spend $150 per year is not a wise economic decision. That's a 12 year return on investment IF your cell lasts that long which it won't. Read More...
Via Phone call: 'How long will an auto cover last?' Asked a customer this week. 'I have read that they can fail in a few years. Is that true?' Read More...
Via Email 12/19/13: You have probably heard we have a VERY wet forecast the next few days. I wanted to reach out and refresh your memory about ground water.
Under most conditions ground water around the pool is not a factor. HOWEVER the conditions are just 'wrong' so to speak to put your pool at risk. The ground is VERY saturated and the forecast is for up to 3" of rain. 'Flooding is possible' were the bad words I heard on the news this morning. What is a sump tube and what does it do?

Taking care of a salt pool is no different than any other type of pool. Your Alkalinity, PH, and available chlorine all need monitored. Understanding the way the system works and that this is s means of MAKING chlorine rather than purchasing will help you understand how to take care of it. Read More...
Like it or not we live in a world where government seems to be involved in everything with an unquenchable thirst for control, money, and power. With the recent decline in construction type projects this has meant that building and zoning departments have found themselves with even MORE time to scrutinize projects that are going on in an effort to further justify their own existence. Building and Zoning departments though started as a result of a legitimate need for public safety and health have become no more than a means for government to get into your pocket and your lives without anything you can do about it. If the EPA is involved expect absolute rule and unchecked power. In other words if they say no, more certain than death – the answer is NO. Read More...
