Hot temperatures and your swimming pool here in Las Vegas

July 3, 2017
So summer is here! Hard to believe, but it's true. It seems like seasons go by in about a month. But with time flying as it does, sometimes the green of algae sneaks up on us. But we can help! If you would like us to stop by and have a look at what's going on with your pool, just give us a call or shoot me a text and we will stop by for free and take a look. If you are looking to take care of it on your own, let us know and we can help out with some suggestions. Basic treatment of algae will consist of first, making sure your water chemistry is where it needs to be with everything in balance. From there, you will need an algaecide to kill the algae. And remember, as you kill algae, this process will most likely deplete all chlorine from your water. So have on hand some liquid chlorine and some powdered shock (make sure it is trichlor, not calcium hypochlorite). For further details, let us know and we will help out.

So believe it or not, winter is coming to an end and summer is rapidly approaching. As a matter of fact, it may be here sooner than later since we are reaching near highs for day time temperatures.

Pool Service in Las Vegas during the off season

December 5, 2015
Many wonder if they need swimming pool service in Las Vegas in the off season. As it cools, pool chemical consumption does go down, but what doesn't go away, is the need to keep the pool clean. With the winter season, comes Las Vegas wind and when this is combined with all of our trees dropping leaves like crazy it makes for a difficult situation. The pool fills up with leaves and debris as fast as we can get it out. This debris needs to be removed from the pool because first, it will stain t...

Summer is Winding Down What do I do with my Swimming Pool?

September 9, 2015
The biggest misconception in owning a swimming pool in Las Vegas is the idea that once summer is over, the maintenance of the pool can be paused or even completely stopped. This is simply not true! Once the weather changes and our daytime highs aren't in the 100's any more, our work isn't over. Leaves, dirt and debris continue to fall into the pool and if left, will stain the plaster. Also, our filter pumps continue to work and collect dirt and small debris and will also need to continue nee...

How do I best service my swimming pool here in the Las Vegas summer heat?

September 9, 2015

As most of us who have been in Las Vegas for any sort of time know that summer months can be brutal!  And those  of us fortunate enough to have a swimming pool can really lessen the "pain" the summer heat can cause on our bodies and our emotions!  Before having a pool, I often contemplated leaving Las Vegas every summer just because the heat was so draining on my whole life (mind, body and spirit!).  But now having a home with a swimming pool has been great!  The kids are having the time of t...

Cleaning Swimming Pool Filters to minimize problems

June 10, 2015
The reason our swimming pools stay crystal clear is due to a number of things.  First of all, correct water chemistry will ensure our water stays clear and algae free.  But another important factor in keeping our equipment running at it's highest efficiency is making sure to periodically clean the filter cartridges.  You see, every little particle of dirt, debris and even our skin particles that flake off while we swim are all captured by the pool filter.  It does an amazing job at catching p...

What to do with my pool in the winter?

January 4, 2015
Just wanted to touch on a couple of concerns pool owners in Las Vegas have every winter.  The most commonly asked question I get is:  "How long do I run my pool in the winter?"  I always respond by telling them the most important thing is not how long to run the pool, but when to run the pool.  You see, even though we live in a desert that during summer months is hotter than Haiti, during the winter it does get cold here and often times freezes!  So when you need to run your pool in the Las V...

How Long Do I Run My Pool Pump?

May 6, 2012
With the hotter summer months getting closer and closer, many have a question as to how long to run their filter pump every day.  I recommend setting your pool time clock to run at least 8 hours a day once temperatures reach 90 degrees through the end of September.  The time to run the filter pump is typically 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or maybe 9 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.  That way, the pool is circulating through the hottest hours of the day and will have uniform chlorine levels throughout the pool, because wh...
