Pool Salt:

Salt water chlorination is a process that uses dissolved salt (2,500–6,000 ppm) as a store for the chlorination system. The chlorine generator (also known as salt cell, salt generator, salt chlorinator) uses electrolysis in the presence of dissolved salt (NaCl) to produce hypochlorous acid (HClO) and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), which are the sanitizing agents already commonly used in swimming pools. As such, a saltwater pool is not actually chlorine-free; it simply utilizes a chlorine generator instead of direct addition of chlorine......More

Saltwater Pools:

Salt water chlorination, is a process that uses dissolved salt (2,500–6,000 ppm) as a store for the chlorination system. In order to achieve this concentration, the chlorine generator (also known as salt cell, salt generator, salt chlorinator) uses electrolysis to break down approximately 200-500 pounds of salt (NaCl). The resulting chemical reaction eventually produces hypochlorous acid (HCIO), and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), which are the sanitizing agents already commonly used in swimming pools. As such, a saltwater pool is not actually chlorine-free; it simply utilizes a chlorine generator instead of direct addition of chlorine.....More

Liquid Pool Cover:

"According to the U.S. Department of Energy, approximately 70% of the energy lost from a swimming pool occurs through evaporation. Therefore, any product such as HeatSavr which slows down evaporation will result in substantial energy savings. If, as it appears from research conducted during this and other tests, this can be done at minimal cost to the consumer, and without affecting the water or harming bathers, its use should be encouraged."....More

Ozone Generators:

If ozone is injected at a depth of 20 (twenty) feet in water you will get almost 100% absorption. No spa is 20 feet deep though. While mixing chambers, and injecting it into long runs of pipe help, there is STILL a fair amount of ozone that DOES NOT get absorbed into the water. Spas that have ozone injected right at the jet have VERY LITTLE absorption... almost all the "kill" happens right at the surface of the ozone bubble where it's in contact with the water. "Most" spas (not all), have a fair amount of off-gassing. It doesn't take long for the ozone to fill the air space between the bottom of the spa cover and the top of the water, then start "spilling" out of the spa....More

Pool Algae:

Every pool owner has, at one time or another, done battle with the occasional algae bloom. Algae spores constantly enter the pool, brought in by wind, rain or even contaminated swimsuits or equipment. When conditions are right, an algae bloom can occur seemingly overnight. These conditions include out of balance water, warm temperatures, sunlight and presence of nitrates and/or carbon dioxide. Of course, a lack of proper circulation, filtration and sanitation may be the primary cause of the algae. The best process is one of elimination....More

Safey Videos:

Constant supervision is an important step to ensure safety around pools and spas. Making sure pools and spas have secure fencing and gates to keep children safe is an important safety step. Keeping pools and spas covered is an important safety step....More

Drinking Water Purification:

Water chlorination is the process of adding the element chlorine to water as a method of water purification to make it fit for human consumption as drinking water. Water that has been treated with chlorine is effective in preventing the spread of waterborne disease.....More

Things to Consider when You Hire a Contractor.

For consumers, paying "under the table" for a job is not a better deal. If you pay cash you have no warranty, no recourse for poor workmanship, and the added risk of liability if an injury takes place on your property.....More

How to Build a Inground Pool:

Before you order a pool kit there are several things you should consider.

  • Water table in the pool site area.
  • Easements and subdivision restrictions.
  • Building codes and lot line set-backs.
  • Fencing requirements and/or restrictions.
  • Location of septic tank, field lines, old cisterns etc.

CHECK YOUR LOCAL BUILDING CODES, PERMITS MAYBE REQUIRED.
IF YOUR ARE HIRING A CONTRACTOR MAKE SURE THEY PROVIDE REFERANCES AND ARE FULLY INSURED.  

THIS IS ONLY A GUIDE LINE.....More
