Colder weather is approaching so you know what that means? Preparing to close your pool for the season. Winterizing your pool can save you a lot of time, aggravation, and money when you go to open your pool in the spring. Avoiding opening your pool and seeing it dirty is a very appealing offer. It could take weeks of treatment and the effort of finding the right chemicals to get the pool back into a condition that’s suitable for swimming.
A properly functioning pool pressure gauge, filter, and air relief valve are vital to the performance of your pool’s circulation system. The filter keeps grime and debris from building up in your pool, and circulation plays an important role in the water chemical balance. That said, it is important that you know how to read the filter’s pool pressure gauge, and use the air relief valve whenever necessary.
Building a pool is a big responsibility especially if you have decided on an expensive inground pool. You have to decide on your budget, overall vision and the location of where your pool will be at home. One of the most important decisions is deciding on a company to rely on to install your swimming pool. Signing a contract and allowing multiple people to do construction on your property should not be taken lightly. It’s crucial you ask all of the right questions and know as much information about the potential companies as possible. Don’t see it as being too forward or putting the contractor in the hot seat because at the end of the day you are the one left with the final project; the answers that the contractors provide for these questions should help you make the best educated decision on who you would like to work with to build your new pool.
As a new pool owner there is a huge choice for you to make. That choice is the decision between making your pool salt water or freshwater. There are pro’s and con’s for both freshwater and salt water pools. First let’s talk about both of these options and compare from there.
We often choose a certain color while shopping due to the aesthetic, or maybe you just really want “that red sports car” to “the gold iPhone”. In terms of solar covers the color is a vital part of how the product will perform.
Solar pool rings are seen as a solar cover alternative, it is a passive heating device that is seen as an effective method to retain thermal energy while increasing the temperature of your pool. Solar rings are easy to store and reduce water evaporation and chemical loss.
As pool owners, knowing how to properly install a pool liner is an invaluable skill. Whether it’s installing your liner on your brand new pool, or the inevitable day when a veteran pool owner must remove an old liner and replace it.
Keeping a pool warm can be an expensive and constant battle all pool owners face. About 75% of a pool’s heat is lost through evaporation, meaning some of your most valiant efforts to heat your pool may just evaporate before your eyes. The costs of running a heater constantly can add up quickly, so we highly recommend investing in a Solar Cover!
