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 their lives and we, as adults, love to jump in every day to cool ourselves and uplift our spirits!  But, the biggest challenge pool owners face anywhere here in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, etc, etc is no matter where we live in Clark County, summers are super hot.  And with swimming pools, heat equals all kinds of challenges; a non-stop, never ending work of keeping up with testing water that never seems to stay anywhere near levels we hope it will i/e Free Chlorine, Total Chlorine, Total Alkalinity, pH, Total Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids!  Are you kidding??  And to make matters worse, the more "off" our water chemistry is, the worse the water looks and more importantly, the less healthy it is for ours and our children's sensitive skin, eyes and hair!  We end up with eyes stinging, skin itching and a pool that looks more like a swamp from the Everglades than a swimming pool.  Add to that the thought of brushing pool steps, walls, tile, netting the debris, vacuuming the bottom, emptying skimmer baskets, pump baskets and cleaning filters, suddenly our dream turns into a nightmare!  And from there, I look and there is water dripping from my pump, valves and heater!  It at times makes the fun part of having a pool turn into a disaster!  

Ok, ok, so perhaps that was a bit dramatic!  But for those of you who own a pool know first hand that it certainly seems that way more times than not!  We are all busy working our tails off, raising children, grandchildren, trying to coordinate events at work, kid's dance recitals, football games, soccer games, practice, practice and more practices.  We of course forgot that we haven't had a family vacation in a year and we then try to plan that too!  So first hint for those who want to maintain their own swimming pool:  What helps a bunch is designating a certain day of the week to take care of your swimming pool maintenance.  Depending on your days off, this could be a Saturday morning, Monday evening or whenever you can fit it in.  That way it is part of your weekly routine.  If you don't set it up this way, you will think:  "I checked on the pool yesterday!" (when it really was 3 or 4 days ago!) "I'll do it tomorrow!"  Tomorrow you work late and are exhausted afterwards and forget about testing the water and cleaning the pool.  Time flies by and it has been 10 days since you tested and cleaned the pool.  You look out and the pool is as green as split-pea soup!  Modern pools are often easier to maintain than older pools, but still need consistent maintenance and chemicals.  If not, plain and simple they will turn nasty!  We can certainly help out in any capacity possible.  For those that have pools with floor cleaners or floor systems and have a pool that stays relatively clean, we offer very affordable chemical services for cheaper than you will pay to try and maintain it yourself.  We are proactive with our services.  Most homeowners are reactive (the blue and green proactive/reactive are a little hint haha) not by choice but by simply having a busy life and complicated schedule.  Typically one with a pool and not much experience usually ends up putting too much of one chemical and has to put another chemical in the pool to counteract the other chemical.  And then that changes the water chemistry with total dissolved solids and hardness.  I could go on for days telling stories of customers with experience after experience of swearing up and down that they are going to get it right with their pool this year and they end up hating the pool because of the added work and pain in the neck it creates in our lives.  We are honored to have the opportunity to help you out in any way we are able with your swimming pool and we do swimming pool maintenance and repairs in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, Southern Highlands Henderson and all areas in between!  Let me know if I can help!  Shoot me a text or give me a call at:  702.701.3876
