Many people are trying to cut back on their expenses by completing home repair work on their own. However, swimming pools can prove particularly complicated to maintain on one's own. Whether commercial or personal, a swimming pool needs to achieve a proper chemical balance for safe and clean use. This can be very difficult for a pool owner who is unfamiliar with water analysis and maintenance.
We can clean your pool the same day in majority of cases.
First and foremost you want your pool cleaning service to be knowledgeable and reliable. These two key factors lead to having your pool stay clean and beautiful year round.

Chemicals: Generally, you should expect to spend approximately $100 per month in chemicals. Of course, this depends on many factors, such as the size of the pool, water temperature, bather load, sun exposure and where you buy chemicals. With a cleaning service we provide the same chemicals you would buy at any pool supply store coupled with the knowledge to apply them effectively and reliably; not to mention you can leave the cleaning to us!

It is not unusual for a dog to drink from a swimming pool. Although water in the dog's pet bowl is preferred, there should be no problem for a dog that drinks water from a swimming pool.
The water level in a pool should be approximately half way up the skimmer's mouth.
Most chemicals are not recommended to be applied directly through the skimmer. For example, shock has a very high concentrate of chlorine, and if applied through the skimmer, can cause damage to the pump, filter, and heater. Always follow directions given to you by your swimming pool professional to prevent damage to your pool.
Filtration is the mechanical system for removing visible matter from the water. The filter medium is designed to remove hair, dirt, minute skin flakes, metal or calcium precipitates and other visible debris that would otherwise cause the water to be hazy and cloudy.
This is dependent upon several factors. The size of your pool, size of your pool filter, the type of pool filter you have, bather and contaminant loads most manufactures recommend a minimum of twice a year complete filter tear down and cleaning.
The goal of sizing a pump and filter is to turn over the entire volume of pool water at least every 24 hour period. If your pump and filter have been sized correctly, this equates to 8 to 10 hours of run time every day.
Yes! Pumps are made to RUN. It's common sense, the more the water is filtered, the cleaner it is.
To retard chlorine evaporation, maximize water clarity and prevent algae your pool filter should run during the hottest part of the day.
The length of time between when you need to clean your filter is referred to as the "filter cycle". A brand new filer would be likely to run for about 30 days between cleans (however, cleaning cycles do vary). Consideration should be given to the following as these could be causes for shorter filter cycles:
- *Location of your pool (trees? beach?)
- * Usage level of your pool (high usage during summer months? Do pets use the pool?)
About $30-$50 in electric per month, depending on pool volume and pump size.
In your pump motor there are bearings. A loud pump motor is a sign of bad bearings. Bearings can be replaced but in most cases the motor is replaced.
Check the power, breakers, switches, etc. If you have a timer on the system, make sure it is working properly.
Pump motors typically last 2 to 5 years. Filter sand or cartridges can deteriorate over a period of time and increased backwashing is a good indication that it is time to change your filter media. As a general rule, filter sand should last between 5-7 years and a filter cartridge may only last 3-5 years before requiring replacement. Automatic pool cleaners such as Polaris' and Legends last roughly 3 to 5 years. Timers and other mechanical equipment usually last 3 to 5 years.
If the pool is well maintained, a new plaster should last about eight to ten years. Keeping your pool water balanced helps prevent normal wear and tear of the plaster.
When a pool begins to show wear or look outdated, many residential and commercial property owners mistakenly believe that a full pool renovation and restoration is their only viable option. However, at Aeon Blue Pool, our skilled technicians can perform a wide range of techniques to improve the appearance of your pool without the need for a full restoration, including:
- *Acid washing, which removes stains and deposits and restores smooth surfaces to improve the look and feel of your pool plaster and tiles.
- *Tile repair and replacement, which allows you to achieve a whole new style or look to your pool with minimal investment.
Over time, your pool plaster and tile can discolor and acquire unsightly stains. Additionally, plaster may become rough and uneven. When this occurs, many pool owners may think that a complete pool renovation is their only option. However, acid washing is an effective pool cleaning and restoration technique that helps remove scaling, stains, and calcium deposits from your pool walls and floor to make the surfaces look new again.
The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act is the federal law that requires anti-entrapment pool drain covers or other safety features on pool and spa drains. The Act came into effect after a young girl drowned when she was trapped underwater by pool drain suction. As of December 2008, almost all pool drains must be equipped with anti-entrapment covers, which feature two frames to prevent a person from being trapped in the drain. Single pool drains usually must also include an additional safety feature, such as a vacuum release or an automatic shut-off system.
Anti-entrapment drain covers are safety features designed to fit over pool drains to keep swimmers from getting trapped underwater due to drain suction. The covers are designed to conform to new pool safety standards, which were put in effect in response to a public awareness campaign brought about by the family of a young girl who drowned when she was trapped by a pool drain. The new drain covers feature an inner frame that fits into the pool drain and an outer cover designed to prevent a person from becoming trapped in the drain.
