Yes you heard me correctly. There are people that should in fact buy a vinyl liner pool. I estimate that somewhere around 5% of residential pool buyers should look at installing a vinyl liner in ground pool. There are some customer that have a project parameters that just cant always be accomplished with fiberglass pools. This segment of the market is typically going to fall into needing one of the following: Read More...
The easy and short answer is...'Sometimes' and or 'It depends' particularly when a safety cover is the proposed barrier. The complication stems from the multitude of building departments, zoning departments, and different guidelines at each. For some homeowners a lack of any governing department at all may actually work in this case to their benefit. Read More...
When testing your pool water for "available" or "free" chlorine (CL) you are measuring the amount of chlorine that is in the pool and is ready to attack a waste. If your test indicates 0.0 CL there may be chlorine in the pool working to sanitize the pool BUT there is no extra, "Free", or "Available" chlorine to attack new or additional waste. In this state it is possible to have a perfectly clear and clean pool as well as SMELL chlorine (really chloramines) but not have any CL register on a test. Read More...
If and HOW you're going to heat your pool is a definitely a consideration when you are planning your project. If a heater is in the budget I highly recommend heat pumps. They are by far the best and easiest way to heat your pool. If not many people ask if they should get a solar cover. My answer is no. Though they absolutely work to heat the pool as well as retain heat at night, they have other shortcomings that I think are not worth it. Read More...
As I talk to customers each day about the benefits of fiberglass vs. vinyl swimming pools I find myself sometimes just saying the words and not really thinking about the TRUE benefits of fiberglass. Sure the whole easy maintenance thing is a huge and REAL benefit as are the integrated bench seats and stairs, as is the gorgeous color! But the real benefit to most clients is the sheer durability. It most cases it's taken for complete granted or not even realized until they own the pool. What do I mean? Read More...
The answer is it doesn't have that much bearing on the installation cost. 3 reasons. (1) Efficiency - For some weird reason our efficacy increases out of town. I think our guys simply have a heightened awareness for a project that is out of town and they work more efficiently because they want to get done and go home. They also don't forgot much, if anything. When we are "at home" it's not as big of deal to "get it tomorrow." The team as a whole tends not be quite as diligent during the morning pack up if we are just driving across town. Read More...
"So how far out are you scheduling right now?" Asked an excited pool owner to be. "It depends" I replied. Many people ask how many pools we have in queue and where they would end up on the list. The truth however is that we don't operate (as it would be totally impossible) on a "first in first out" basis. There is a chance that your project could be a lot quicker than simply going to the end of the line. Once we have all the components we need we get started! Read More...
One important consideration when selecting your pool and designing your living space is how you're going to use it. For most people the pool is a place to cool off and socialize with friends. Despite that many people when they initially come to us thinking about their new pool they tend to focus on wanting a DEEP pool because they have tall friends. On the surface you would tend to think that if you and your friends are average height (5-8 to 5-10) you would want a pool that is at least that depth plus a foot or so. Not necessarily the case.

As you are putting together you new pool and living space one of the things you will be looking at is what to do about a cover. Though on the surface this may seem like a very basic component the truth is it's NOT. There are many different options when it comes to winter covers and you will absolutely get what you pay for in each. Read More...
One of the more common questions I get is: Do you do salt pools? The short answer is yes I do. What I have come to realize however is that there is an abundance of misinformation and lack of knowledge out there when it comes to what a salt pools is. Read More...
