“We’re your specialists on pool and spa chemicals. We carry everything you’ll need to manage your pool or spa and at the best prices.”
1. Don’t make the mistake of back washing too long or too often. Only backwash your pool when indicated by a change in pressure and only as long as it takes the water in the sight glass to run clear.
2. Waste water average is calculated between November and March so the best times to refill your pool are between Spring and Fall.
3. Regularly using a pool cover reduces evaporation up to 95%.
4. If you suspect your pool may have a leak, place a bucket filled with water on the top step (add a brick or rock for additional weight). Mark the water level on both the inside and the outside of the bucket. 24 hours later, check to see if both mark levels are the same. If you notice a greater drop on the outside of the bucket, a leak in the pool is indicated.
