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...

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...

The truth is that a crane is almost never needed to install a pool. In fact all it really does is increase the risk and the cost of the project. The neighbors may get a charge out of it and it may be thrilling for the pool guy but in my opinion it's reckless and unneeded with the right planning, diligence, and patience. See what can happen when a crane is misused... 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...
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.
