Valentine’s Day Done Right With Our Help

Tags : 

indexWe’re 3 weeks away from this beautiful holiday and we’d like to help you make it memorable and safe. Today we’re going to take some time to give you some ideas as to how to incorporate your pool (if you didn’t close it for the season) or your Jacuzzi/ hot tub . As always, we love helping you keep your pools and hot tubs clean and running smooth, because we love pools as much as you do!

Here’s our ideas on how to make this February 14th one for the record books!

  • Hot Tub Romance: Valentine’s Day being a Sunday means you and your partner can probably spend the whole day together, so why not plan in some Tubbin’ time? Turn on the jets, bring out the rose petals, and serve the bubbly! Before this surprise, have us stop by to inspect the unit and get it sparkling clean for you! You don’t need algae growth ruining the mood and making you and your hot tub partner slip around. Note: Be careful using rose petals to set the mood– check with us about how chlorine will affect the petals and how the petals will affect the water. You may want to opt for a synthetic– and reusable– option.
  • Couples Night: Bring by another couple (or more) for some couples night fun! Board games, movies, and some time in the hot tub! Unwind before the work week gets started again! Spread the love, guys.
  • Pools: If your pool is open (as well as clean, balanced, and working properly with our help) then you may find yourself able to surprise your partner with a pool party with your closest friends or other couples. You can also purchase any number of interesting multi-person floats for your pool. This will allow you to lay with your love to look at the clouds or the stars while you float peacefully across the water without a care in the world.
  • Indoor pools: Embrace your inner child and splash around instead of the droll exercising you probably do with your indoor units. Bring out the floats, or take a page from the hot tub romance and bring out rose petals and a floating bar or other interesting pool accessory. Relax the stress from the previous week away with warm water and the best company.

No matter how you spend your February 14th this year, we hope it’s a great one! Don’t forget that Pool Daddy AZ can help you with almost every pool and hot tub need you have! We can help you keep your units running year round as well as close them for Winter and open them for Spring or Summer.

Pool Services 2016

Welcome back, everyone! 2015 sure was a crazy year, and we’d like to help you keep 2016 crazy in all the right ways! We want to help you keep your pools, hot tubs, and Jacuzzis clean and in great working condition year round, so today we’re going to talk a little about our services to remind you how we can help come spring and summer, and to let the new readers know what we’re all about! We know we’ve been having some wintery temperatures here lately, so the last thing you’re thinking about is probably your pool, but don’t worry! We’re only a few months away from Spring!

Pool Services

Inspections: Before your open up your pool to regular use (be it residential or commercial) you may want to have it inspected. This will ensure the safety of swimmers and help catch any problems with equipment you may want to remedy to prevent future headaches.

Cleaning: A clean pool is a happy pool, and a happy pool keeps swimmers safe, healthy, and happy. We can help you keep your pool clean year round!

Closing and Opening: We can help you prep your pool for the off season and then we can help you bring it back up to speed for a new swimming season.

Maintenance and Repairs: No pool equipment is immune to damage or wear and tear. Keeping your equipment maintained is the best way to keep your costs of repairs low and keep damage at bay. Equipment that isn’t working properly can damage other equipment as well as your pool walls and tile!

Weekly Services: During the pool seasons, we can come by weekly to check the chemical levels, pH levels, do some basic cleaning, check filters, and much more! If you want to do some of this on your own, you can schedule us for less-regular visits or hire us on an “as needed” basis, but having us perform weekly services is a great way to keep your pool up and running! We’ll notice changes in your pool temperature, color, and other factors quicker than you might, so diagnosing problems will take less time and be caught early.

Check back weekly for blogs about pool maintenance, ideas for pool parties, news on prices and  pool services, and tips on keeping your pool running smoothly between our visits! We want to help you have the best 2016 you can have! Your pool or hot tub is an investment, and we’d like to help you keep it that way.

Have a great week, everyone. We can’t wait for Spring and Summer to come so we can all celebrate the warm weather with a dip in the pool!

Pool Services – Common Pool Problems and Concerns

Tags : 

Pool Services

As cool as this could look for Halloween, don’t let it stay green too long! Regular cleaning is a must.

Pool Services

We’d like to take some time during the pool off-season to just brush up on some pool services information, refresh your memory on some things we’ve discussed in the distant past, and keep you up to date on pool services maintenance ideas, terms, and more. Today we’re going to talk about some of the most common problems pool owners come across, with brief explanations as to how the problem is addressed.

  1. Discolored water: Pool water can change color with a bunch of different causes. A hazy or cloudy pool can be caused by poor water circulation, problems with the filter, water balance issues, high alkalinity, low sanitizer level, calcium build up, high levels of total dissolved solids, and the presence of too much organic waste. Most of these issues are handled with adjusting the levels of chemicals and other such products, including shocking your pool.
  2. Green Water: Green water is a common problem, which means algae is growing in the pool. Shocking the pool can be a solution to this problem if you catch it early, but adding algae killers, scrubbing the walls and floor, and cleaning out the residue can also help. For extreme cases, acid washing may need to happen.
  3. Black spots: Black algae isn’t as common as their green relative. It’s much harder to get rid of and it appears in small patches, so it’s easy to miss. Purchasing and using special algae killer designed for that is your first level of defense.
  4. Pink growth: Bacteria growth like this is remedied with shocking the pool (usually twice) and then extra algaecide is used for 2 or more days.
  5. Yellow or green dust: Mustard algae can occur in some pools, and shocking your pool is the best way to remove it, with the addition of special algaecide designed to kill mustard algae after the shock.
  6. Correcting chlorine and pH levels: If your pool has too much chlorine, stop adding it until the levels balance out or add a neutralizer. For pH levels, you may need to adjust the chlorine levels, decrease alkalinity, or increase alkalinity. There are products available to fix all of those problems.
  7. Sudsy water: Too much algaecide can cause the pool water to start foaming. There are non-foaming brands out there, so switching to that and replacing some water in your pool can remedy this issue.
  8. Salty water: If your total dissolved solids levels are too high and your pool is salty, you need to drain the pool (up to half way) and replace the water.
  9. Water burns eyes or skin: If the pH levels of your pool are off (too high OR too low) it can cause irritation to the eyes or skin of swimmers. The culprit may also be an excess of sanitizer. Checking the levels of your pool regularly can help prevent this from becoming a regular problem.

Pool Remodeling and Building? Start Thinking Now!

Pool Remodeling and Building

Christmas is less than a month away, meaning 2016 is right around the corner! If you’ve considered pool remodeling, upgrading, or installing a pool in the near future, it might be a good idea to start planning now! You can never be too prepared or start planning too early. Today we’d like to take a few minutes and remind you of some things to keep in mind when budgeting and planning a pool remodeling or installation.

  1. Budget: Once you’ve budgeted the cost of the installation of the pool itself (including excavation, shipping, labor pay, material costs, etc) you may want to take a moment to consider the cost of keeping a pool running. This will include pool cleaning tools, pool chemicals, and (when applicable) the cost of regular cleaning or maintenance with a reliable pool cleaning company—like Pool Daddy! Give us a call for a quote on general pool cleaning. Pools are expensive to install, but don’t forget the ongoing cost. It may also be wise to converse with other pool owners in your area to talk about the changes in their power and water bills.
  2. Choosing the right pool: The first step is to decide if you want an in-ground or above-ground poo Then you must decide if you want fiberglass, vinyl, or concrete as your pool liner style. You will then want to consider the differences between different filter systems, salt water versus traditional chlorine water, and the type of pump you will need. There are endless combinations available, but choosing the right pool for your budget, lifestyle, and needs is important.
  3. Pool Repair Phoenix AZChoosing the location: Above ground pools can be moved around on your property (though the process can be difficult, depending on the type and location of the pool) but they can also be put in a more permanent location like built into a deck. In ground pools take a lot more time to install, and the process can be quite time consuming. Making sure you like the location before the digging begins is very important. You must consider sunlight levels, locations of sewer pipes and septic tanks or ground water, and other factors before installing your pool.
  4. Choosing the right crew: Give us a call about any pool installations, pool remodeling, and improvements. If we can’t do it, we’ll point you in the direction of the best crew to do it!
  5. Maintenance: Weekly maintenance is important for all pools. This goes from basic cleaning and chemical checking to ensuring the filters, skimmers, and vacuums are operating properly. Some pool owners choose to do this on their own, but we’d love to help you keep your pool running smoothly to keep you happy and swimming all season long.Related Topics:Swimming Pool Renovation

Holiday Pool Style: Unwind With a Hot Tub

Tags : 

Holiday Pool Style: Unwind With A Hot Tub

Holiday Pool

This time next week we’ll be eating Thanksgiving leftovers, still fighting crowds for Thanksgiving Weekend sale prices, or recovering from Black Friday shopping. Unwind the best way possible with your hot tub, indoor pool, or Jacuzzi. From the infinity pools to your basic above ground Jacuzzi, warm or hot water can be the best way to relax after holiday stress. Keep your water-based-stress-saver running smoothly with our help! Regular cleaning, checks, and maintenance will help keep your hot tub working from now until New Year’s (and beyond).

To encourage you to keep your hot tub or Jacuzzi (or even a heated pool) through Winter, we’d like to remind you of just how much better your life can be when these units are working.

  1. Stress Management: Exercise is a great way to manage stress, so if your pool is still open you may want to consider going for a swim before or after spending hours in the kitchen making a meal or after you spend hours shopping for the best Christmas presents. Hot tubs are great to loosen up those tense muscles and calm your nerves from the in-laws or screaming kids at the mall.
  2. Stay fit: If your pool is still open (and comfortable enough to swim in during these cooler months) you may want to keep up with your swimming regiment during the holidays! We all know we’re prone to overeating and eating comfort foods, sweets, snacks, and more at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Don’t let yourself fall out of shape, use your pool to your advantage if you haven’t closed it for the season.
  3. Easy Entertainment: While the kids are playing with their new toys or their friends and cousins, some of the adults could easily slip away to the hot tub and have a glass of punch and share some stories that are less-than-fit around certain family members. Or, you can share great memories while letting the water jets and bubbles relax you all, making great memories.

No matter what you do this Thanksgiving (and Christmas) holiday, don’t let your pool or hot tub fall into disrepair. If you neglect these investments, you’ll be paying much more in the future to have them repaired. Keep up with your maintenance effortlessly by scheduling weekly (or other regular) maintenance with your favorite pool company, Pool Daddy! We’d love to help take that stress of “did I clean my pool this week?” or “I that a leak in my Jacuzzi?” off of your shoulders this holiday season. Give us a call or check out our Contact Us page to talk about any question, comments, or concerns you have about your pool, hot tub, Jacuzzi, or other water feature you may have on your property.

Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy your holiday pool style everyone.

Pool Services : 10 Gifts to Give Pool Owners for Christmas

Tags : 

Pool Services

Pool Services

Christmas is coming, and it may be time to start thinking about Christmas presents. If you have a pool owner on your list, we may have some ideas for gifts you can give them!

  1. Pay for Pool Cleaning Services: Even the most hands-on pool owner may want a break from the cleaning and chemical checking. Talk to us about paying for a pool services, pool cleaning for your loved one! Give them a week off of the regular cleaning and scrubbing and filter checking this holiday season.
  2. Pool Floats: A simple Google search will wield a ton of interesting pool floats! There are some simple floats made from high quality material, novelty ones shaped like pizza or other unusual shapes and colors, and there’s even unsinkable ones! You can also find ones for two or more people as well as child and pet friendly floats.
  3. Games and Toys: From floating houses and riders to basketball hoops and volley ball nets you can find cool games and toys for any pool owner.
  4. Entertaining guests: Some of the coolest pool accessories you could gift are the ones that will make party hosting so fun. You can find floating coolers, snack trays, speakers, and other accessories to help keep the fun going. You may even be able to find floating tables with umbrellas and card tables with water proof cards!
  5. Lights: You can find light shows and fun colored lights for nearly any pool style to take any post-sunset pool party to the next level!
  6. New cleaning equipment: As the years go by, cleaning tools haven’t changed a lot, but new brushes and nets or a replacement for the 10 year old pool vacuum may go over very well—especially if you can find something that’s a little fancier than the old equipment they had.
  7. Pool Side: From pool side tables and chairs to new serving trays to carry out snacks and refreshments, to a new umbrella for the pool-side table, anything that surrounds the pool can stand to be replaced or improved upon! Especially after years of being close to water (and probably splashed by children or grandchildren) and years in the summer sun.
  8. Protection: If you can afford a slightly more expensive gift, consider a new pool cover for your loved one. Improper storage of even the best pool cover can cause damage, so if you notice something wrong with their existing cover, a new one may make the perfect gift.
  9. Towels, suits, and more: Any swimming accessories could make great gifts and stocking stuffers. From new goggles to plush beach towels, you can never have too much swimming gear. The same goes for water wings for children or life vests for pets.

Pool Services : Pool and Hot Tub Safety for the Holidays

Tags : 

Pool ServicesPool Services For The Holidays

Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, and before you know it Christmas and New Year’s will be here. ‘Tis the season for family gatherings and parties with friends, so be prepared to receive guests. If you have a pool on your property, you may want to take some precautions (whether the pool has been shut down for the season or not).

  1. Children: If a kid sees a pool in your back yard and they can get to it, they may try to check it out or jump in (despite the weather or if you’ve got a cover on it). Small children may not listen to warnings and directions from you and other adults, so keeping doors that lead to the pool closed and locked can prevent children from messing with the pool and equipment. Explain to older children (especially those who can work locks) that the pool is off limits. If the pool is open and you’re allowing swimmers, make sure basic pool safety is followed and adults are present any time children are near the water.
  2. Pets: If there are pets at your party (from house guests or your own personal pets), keeping the doors closed and locked should prevent any pet-related problems. However, if outside activities are going on, pets can run out easily in the commotion of the plethora of guests. Keep pets away from doors that lead to the pool.
  3. Pool covers: Not all pool covers can hold the weight of a small child or pet, let alone that of a full grown adult. If you do not have a hard cover or a cover which can safely hold the weight of a person, take extra precaution to keep people, kids, and animals from stumbling into danger.

If you’re keeping your hot tub or Jacuzzi open for your guests, be sure they understand how the tub works, or that they are observing general safety rules (capacity, proper attire, and safety around any slick areas covered in water). Hot tubs are a great way to unwind with a few people after a heavy meal and an even better way to relax after preparing all of the food and setting up decorations or chasing kids around.

  1. Be careful who is allowed in the tub, as small children and animals can get hurt easily.
  2. If your hot tub is in an area where people will be passing by regularly and you are not wanting anyone to mess with it or get in it, ensure the cover is secure and, when possible, apply some locking mechanism.
  3. Try to prevent people from leaning on or climbing on the tub (empty or full, cover on or off). The last thing anyone needs is a broken cover or a hurt guest.

After your parties, have us inspect and clean your pool or hot tub, or call us if you suspect anything is unsafe about your pool covers or anything related to your hot tub or Jacuzzi.

Pool Services : Hot Tubs, Jacuzzis: Warmth, Comfort and Fun!

Tags : 

Pool Services

We’re nearing the end of October, which means Winter is right around the corner! This weekend we’re going to talk a little about hot tubs and Jacuzzi’s. They’re a great way to unwind and you can use them year round! We’re going to talk about how they can improve your life as well as why it’s important to keep them in peak working condition.

  1. Stress: So many hot tub and Jacuzzi owners get them to reduce stress, both physical and mental. Our bodies take a beating when we work long hours or spend all day helping others, and that can affect our mental capacities as well. Soaking in hot water, letting the jets massage your body is a great way to unwind. Some people take long, hot baths to unwind, but at Pool Daddy, we prefer a soak in the hot tub– alone or with your partner or friends. Keeping this stress relief investment clean and with working parts will reduce your stress levels even further! We can help make sure it stays in working condition so you never have to go without.
  2. Aches and Pains: From arthritis to pulled muscles, a nice long soak can relieve pressure on joins or relax muscles. Much like stress relief, pain relief is another major reason people install hot tubs or Jacuzzis.Pool Services
  3. Entertainment: We’ve all seen tv shows or movies where someone has a group of friends over in the hot tub, sipping on champagne or eating hors d’oeuvers. Having a hot tub is a great way to entertain small groups. Double dates, post-work bonding, and other small gatherings are made better with a hot tub– especially when it starts getting cold our or after a nice night out dancing.
  4. Investment: Some home owners opt to install a hot tub as an in-ground unit, usually adjacent to their in-ground pool. You can also install an above ground option into a deck. The more permanent the structure, the more you can get out of the property when it’s sold! If you own a property or apartment complex, having a hot tub or Jacuzzi can be a major selling point, much like a pool.
  5. Maintenance: Pool cleaning and maintenance can be pricey, but hot tubs take a little less work and parts. They still need to be cleaned periodically and the parts need to be maintained and checked regularly for leaks or failures, but filling it with water costs much less and any chemicals you may need or want to add will not need to be done in such high concentrations as the pool.
  6. Take it with you: Unlike pools, a hot tub may be easy to take with you if you move. Most above ground units are fairly easy to set up and take out. Some apartment owners can even install a hot tub! If you rent or own a property and are interested in installing a hot tub, you will face fewer road blocks as you would with a pool or in-ground hot tub.

Call today to ask about hot tub and Jacuzzi installations, maintenance, cleaning, and care!

Pool Services – Indoor Pool : Perks, Care, and More

Tags : 

Pool Services – Indoor Pool

Who doesn’t love a dip in a heated pool at a gym, hotel, or health club? Pools are great year round, but sometimes it gets a little too cold to swim in outdoor, non-heated pools. If you are a lucky owner of an indoor pool, this post is for you! If you’re not (yet) the owner of an indoor pool, you may want to get one after reading this!

Perks of indoor pools:

Pool Services

  • Temperature control: The weather is less likely to affect the temperature of an indoor pool. It may be easier to monitor and maintain temperatures during weather shifts.
  • Debris: While all pools can be victims of debris, indoor pools are less likely to have plant and animal debris from neighboring areas. Debris will still happen, but it’s a much more controlled environment.
  • Year round: A lot of indoor pools are open year round, especially for gyms, health spas, and other related uses. Water aerobics, therapy pools, lap swimming, and general fun can be had in an indoor pool.
  • Sunburn: Unless you have large windows in the pool room, sunburns are much less likely while swimming in an indoor pool.

Downsides:

  • Cost: It can be more expensive to install an indoor pool—especially if you already have the building set up. Building the walls around the pool may be easier—depending on the type of pool.
  • Maintenance: Most indoor pools are heated much more than outdoor pools, especially in the cooler months. Cleaning and other maintenance will need to be done as often as outdoor pools.
  • Less natural light: Sunshine can heat your outdoor pool (to a degree) and it’s nice to sunbathe in the natural sun when you’re poolside outside.
  • Social: Indoor pools are more often seen as serious. Hotels with business guests wanting to swim laps aren’t going to be too happy to see a family of 5 show up with their kids wanting to splash around—but if it’s a personal pool that’s not a problem!

All pools are awesome! Both indoor and outdoor pools have their perks and downsides, much like above-ground and in-ground pools have their positive and negative aspects. No matter what type or pool or hot tub you have, Pool Daddy can help you keep it clean and in proper working condition.

All pools will require regular cleaning, pH balancing, wall and floor cleaning, vacuuming, filter cleaning, shock treatments, and other basic maintenance functions. Lucky for you, Pool Daddy in Arizona knows what needs to be done and when. Give us a call to start scheduling weekly pool services or give us a call to have us walk you through what you should be doing regularly to keep your indoor pool open year round!
