Frequently asked questions
Owning a pool requires regular maintenance to ensure it stays clean, safe, and enjoyable. The amount of maintenance a pool requires can vary depending on factors such as the pool’s size, location, usage, and the surrounding environment. Generally, pools need weekly or bi-weekly maintenance, which involves skimming debris, vacuuming, balancing water chemistry, checking and cleaning filters, and inspecting equipment. Additionally, seasonal tasks like winterizing and opening the pool in spring are essential. While maintenance may seem daunting, our pool experts are here to guide you through the process and offer professional maintenance services to keep your pool in optimal condition.
Maintaining a pool by yourself can be manageable with the right knowledge and tools. Here are some essential steps for DIY pool maintenance:
a. Skimming and Cleaning: Regularly skim the surface to remove leaves, debris, and insects. Use a pool brush to scrub the walls and floor to prevent algae buildup.
b. Water Chemistry: Test the water chemistry at least once a week using a reliable pool testing kit. Adjust pH, chlorine levels, and alkalinity as needed to keep the water balanced and safe for swimming.
c. Filter Maintenance: Clean or backwash the pool filter regularly to ensure optimal filtration and circulation.
d. Pump and Equipment Checks: Inspect the pool pump and other equipment to make sure they are functioning properly. Address any issues promptly or seek professional assistance if required.
e. Covering: Use a pool cover when the pool is not in use, especially during the off-season, to reduce debris and evaporation.
f. Winterizing and Opening: Properly winterize the pool before freezing temperatures arrive, and follow a comprehensive checklist for safely reopening the pool in spring.

While both inground and above-ground pools have their merits, inground pools offer several advantages that make them a preferred choice for many pool enthusiasts:
a. Aesthetics: Inground pools seamlessly blend with the surrounding landscape, enhancing the overall visual appeal of your property.
b. Size and Customization: Inground pools can be designed in various shapes and sizes, allowing for more flexibility and customization to suit your preferences and available space.
c. Durability and Longevity: Inground pools are typically more durable and have a longer lifespan than above-ground pools, providing you with years of enjoyment.
d. Property Value: The presence of a well-maintained inground pool can positively impact your property’s value and attract potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future.
e. Versatility: Inground pools offer more possibilities for additional features like waterfalls, integrated hot tubs, and custom landscaping, creating a luxurious and personalized oasis.
While the initial cost of installing an inground pool may be higher than that of an above-ground pool, the long-term benefits and aesthetics make it a worthwhile investment for many homeowners.
The lifespan of an inground pool depends on various factors, including the quality of construction, the materials used, and how well it’s maintained over the years. Generally, a well-built and properly maintained inground pool can last for several decades.
Concrete or gunite pools are known for their durability and can last 25 to 50 years or more with proper care. Vinyl liner pools have a lifespan of about 20 to 30 years, while fiberglass pools can last between 25 to 40 years.
Regular maintenance, timely repairs, and attention to potential issues will significantly extend the life of your inground pool. As a reputable pool company, we provide expert maintenance, repair, and renovation services to ensure your investment lasts for many enjoyable years ahead.
