A well maintained filter is key to a clean pool and helps extend the life of the filter and other components. I do this service approximately every 6 months at a charge of $125.00.
Salt Cell Service
In order to keep your salt system online the salt cell needs to be cleaned of calcium that builds up on the inside. It is done as needed at a charge of $49.00.
PoolRX Mineral Unit
A great addition to help lower chemical usage and kill algae for up to 6 months. The special minerals recharge as they pass through the PoolRX cylinder. Check 'em out here...
Also known as water clarifier. It suspends particles together so they can be filtered out resulting in sparkling water.
Beautec Stain and Scale Preventer
Helps mitigate calcium build up on pool tile and stone. Also works great to keep salt cells clean and extending cell service frequency.
The majority of pools have pool cleaners these days. It's the best way to keep your pool looking its best while helping to prevent algae and stains from forming. If you do not have one we can manually vacuum for a nominal fee.
Protects your pool from electrolysis and galvanic corrosion. A must for saltwater pools.
Test Pool Water
I test your pool water for chlorine, pH level, and total alkalinity. This helps me determine proper type and amount of chemicals required to balance your water.
Add Proper Chemicals
I administer chemicals, taking into consideration current chemical levels as well as overall condition of pool and pool water.
Empty Skimmer Basket
The skimmer is the main collection point for debris. I'll completely empty and inspect the basket as well as inspect the diverter assembly.
Clean Skimmer Throat
A clean skimmer (the big rectangle hole in the side of your pool) makes a big difference, but is often overlooked by service technicians. I will clean the scum line that can form inside the skimmer to keeping it clean and sanitary.
I use a nylon brush to thoroughly brush the waterline. This knocks off all the "cling ons" but will not damage the surface. I also utilize a scrub pad for ceramic tile to help eliminate scum and pollen.
The net is the most important tool in removing debris from your pool. With a fine mesh and a smooth lip on my pro net, I can usually make quick work of top and bottom skimming the entire pool. (25 years experience doesn't hurt either).
Brush Walls, Steps, Swim Outs
Undoubtedly, the most important step in algae prevention is to brush all surfaces. I go around the perimeter, brush all walls, floors, swimouts, steps, and anyplace else that I can reach. I also identify and focus on any problem areas.
Inspect and Adjust Pool Cleaner
I inspect the pool cleaner to make sure all parts are in good working order. I also check the flow and adjust the flow valve for efficient performance.
Check Pool Equipment
"Stop, look, and listen"... That's my approach to checking out the pool equipment. I look for leaks and overview all the equipment and plumbing. I inspect the pumps and empty the strainer baskets. I check the filter pressure to make sure the system is functioning properly. I listen for odd noises that may indicate a problem or that a setting requires and adjustment.
