Halloween Pool Party: Good Idea This November

Tags : 

Halloween Pool PartyHalloween Pool Party

We’ve talked a bit this Fall about whether you should Winterize your pool or not. You still have a few months to decide if you’re considering closing it down for the actual winter. Fall is here to stay for a couple months, so if you plan on winterizing for just Winter, we’d love to give you some ideas on how to use your pool and give tips on keeping it clean and working properly until you shut it down (if you do).

We’re a few days into October, and social media is filled with people getting ready for Halloween. “It’s the 4th day of Halloween,” some of your more Halloween obsessed friends may be saying. Let’s plan an amazing Halloween Pool  Party that people will be talking about for years, with a little help from your pool, hot tub , or Jacuzzi.

If you love Haunted houses, what better way to add some flare than to make your pool look like a foggy swamp (with dry ice or a fog machine) or throw in some sea monster decorations or fake corpses. You could even have people jumping in and out of the pool in interesting creepy costumes. Or you could drain your hot tub and have some fake limbs coming out of the cover, or have someone pop out while guests are being led past it! The possibilities are endless. In fact, even if you’ve closed your pool or hot tub for the year, you could incorporate many ideas into a haunted house.

If you’re not as fond of the jump scares, gore, and creepy costumes, you could throw a great Halloween Pool Party and invite people to take a dip in your pool or warm up in the Jacuzzi. Be careful with that, however. Someone may want to show up in a full costume and want to take a dip. We’d recommend you inform guests that it’s best if no one wearing a costume or makeup gets in the pool. Put up some Halloween decorations, get some pumpkin-colored beach balls or some spooky pool toys and go nuts.

Halloween Pool Party

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

No matter what you do this Halloween, be safe. If you’re involving your pool, hot tub, or Jacuzzi, be warned that you may want to have a thorough cleaning after the party to remove any candy wrappers, food debris, costume pieces, and other Halloween related trash, gunk, or junk. We offer weekly services as well as non-scheduled cleaning and maintenance to suit your needs.

We hope you have a wonderful Autumn. If you’re keeping your pool open, don’t neglect it. You may need to do just as much work in the Fall as you do in the Summer. Pool Daddy is here to answer questions and help you keep your pool clean and in the best working condition it can be in.

Above Ground Pools Vs. In-ground Pools

Above Ground Pools Vs. In-ground Pools

Swimming pools are awesome and some people greatly prefer in-ground pools over the above ground pools options. Today we’ll talk about each type to help you decide which one to add to your home this summer! For more information check out this article as well as this one.

No matter what pool you choose, contact Pool Daddy for your pool repair, weekly cleaning, maintenance, and more. No pool is self-cleaning and any pool can come across issues.

In-Ground pools:

Above Ground Pools Vs. In-ground PoolsThis style is very popular and can increase home value in many ways. The initial investment may cost a hefty amount but if you plan on selling it can increase your property value due to the water-feature which is pleasing to the eye and the recreation uses will also increase the home value.

In-ground pools can be pricey. The installation cost is usually pretty steep as is the cost of filling or emptying the pool, chemical cost, and replacing water removed from evaporation. Cleaning and maintenance can also seem costly (Pool Daddy offers pool cleaning and maintenance for reasonable and affordable prices, by the way). Areas that allow for year round use of a pool can make the investment seem more useful but it will cost more than closing the pool for the winter.

In-ground pools are amazing, however. You have tons of options regarding size, shape, tile colors and patterns, lining styles, cover styles, accessories, decking or paving materials, and more. Concrete, vinyl, and fiberglass are the most common options for in-ground pools. Wall panels have even more options like different metals, plastics, wood, and more. Concrete tends to run for higher prices than vinyl and vinyl offers a variety of patterns while concrete offers higher customizability as shape goes.

Keeping up with modern equipment for pools (filters, heaters, pumps, etc) are a great way to keep your pool costs down and regular maintenance, though it may seem costly, can save hundreds on pool repairs by catching problems early.

In-ground pools can be considered dangerous for young ones and animals if they are unsupervised or have easy access to the pool. A way to combat this is locked gates kids and animals can’t get through.

Above Ground Pools:

Above Ground Pools Vs. In-ground PoolsAbove ground pools options are usually very quick to install and have a low startup cost. It can take only a matter of days (as opposed to a week or longer for in-ground) to install a pool of this style. Fancier options include deck, fence, and railing options for an additional cost, increasing the visual appeal of the pool.

Like in-ground pools, above-ground pools can be heated or you can allow the sun to do the heating for you for less money (but with less heat in the pool).

This style of pool is much less permanent than the in-ground option, so it does not add value to your home. Even if you’ve worked this pool into your deck and landscape of your home it does not increase the home value. They also are not as deep as in-ground pools can be. The typical depth is between 48 and 52 inches deep; meaning not safe for diving and they often do not have a “shallow” end.

Sizes and shapes can vary for these pools, but they are usually less customizable than in-ground varieties. Ovals and circles are the common shapes for above-ground pools but they come in various sizes. It is a good way to introduce a pool to your family, especially if you cannot add an in-ground unit to your home due to zoning, construction laws, or property restrictions (like rentals).

Above Ground Pools Vs. In-ground PoolsDue to the impermanence of an above-ground pool, you can (usually) take it with you if/when you move! So if you don’t plan on staying in a home for long but you still want the cooling fun of a pool you can opt for the above ground option.

Above-ground pools still need maintenance, but depending on the equipment you have installed you may have less maintenance needed. Ladders or steps and filters are necessary but heaters are options. Many of these pool owners opt to use rain water or hose water (or a truck) to fill their pools, decreasing the need for a pump (but you can still have one installed).

Back-washing Sand-Based Filter

Tags : 

Back-washingSand Changes and Back-washing

If you’re unfamiliar with how pool filters work, you may be confused when someone mentions changing the sand in the filter having sand in a filter, to some, may sound like a problem. Pool filters often use sand to help trap dirt and very small particles (between 20-100 microns). Sand filters are some of the lowest maintenance filters on the market.

Most sand filters need to have the sand replaced after around 7-10 years because they will eventually require frequent back-washing or they get calcified or other forms of buildup caused by water balance issues.

Soft Swim or Baquacil (Biguanide chemicals) filters requite annual cleaning to keep it running smoothly. Eventually, the water being pumped over the sand will wear down the sharper edges of the sand, decreasing functionality.

Back-washing your sand-based filter is important. When the pressure gauge reads at 8-10 pounds above the clean, it is time to backwash. This process is done by turning on the valve so the water runs through the filter backwards (removing dirt). This process can be done roughly every 4 weeks. More often backwashing may indicate a problem (such as the sand needing to be replaced). Make sure to shut off the filter pump before doing anything to the filter. Detailed steps on backwashing can be found here.

There is one very common misconception about sand filters that we need to address. Yes, a “dirty” sand filter can be more efficient than one with fresh sand, but there is always a point where the amount of dirt is hindering the ability. Brand new sand doesn’t always filter as efficiently, but regular cleaning and replacement is key to a clean pool. Detailed instructions on replacing the sand in a poll filter can be found here.

There are other filter options for pools, but the sand filter option is commonly chosen because the sand is easily, and cheaply replaced and the back-washing process is not very complicated. Those looking for cheap maintenance often choose this option, though the biggest downside is the frequency at which the sand needs to be back-washed. They are great for pools with high GPM (gallons per minute) capacity and are simple to use and operate. Some may be concerned with the amount of waste water created when using and cleaning sand filters, which is understandable—so always check with your local codes before considering using sand filters.

No matter what type of filter you have or how often you need your sand filter maintained, Pool Daddy is here to help. Our weekly or monthly services can include back-washing, sand replacement, and more. Our technicians will help keep your pool running smoothly year round! Why replace the sand in your filter or backwash yourself when our technicians can do it with ease while you relax!

Pool Winterization!

Steps of Pool Winterization!

Winter is officially here! It’s time to winterize the pool. You may be thinking “but it’s so warm out, I can use my pool year round!” but unless you plan on using the pool and cleaning it regularly, you may want to consider winterization to save time, effort, and money during the season you probably won’t want to swim.

Let’s talk about the steps of winterization.

Pool Winterization

  1. Remove debris. Using a pool vacuum or a net, remove leaves, dirt, bugs, and other debris from the pool water. Clean the skimmer and pump basket. Clean tile with tile cleaner, to prevent buildup over winter.
  2. pH levels: Adjust the water to the recommended pH levels to keep corrosion and build up from damaging your pool. Things like alkalinity, calcium, and chlorination should also be checked and adjusted. Some chemical kits are designed for winterization and should be considered. They often contain algaecide and extra chlorine.
  3. Be careful of chemical levels: More chlorine isn’t always a good idea. To prevent damage to equipment, avoid using tablets or floaters. If you’ve used a tablet or other chemicals recently, you may want to wait for those chemicals to wear off before adding a winterization kit.
  4. Drain water to below the skimmer: Do not fully empty the pool, it can cause freeze damage if temperatures get low enough.
  5. Disconnect pumps and heaters: Once the water is drained, unplug pumps and heaters, and if possible, turn them upside down to ensure excess water is removed. You can use a compressor or shop vac to assure all water is removed from a heater. Drain plugs should be removed and stored. Also remove jet fittings, skimmer baskets, and pump baskets.
  6. Remove water from all pipes: using a compressor or a wet-dry shop vac, force all air out of plumbing and skimmers, drain lines, gate valves, etc.
  7. Clean filter: Remove filter hoses, spray the filter elements and diatomaceous earth grids with Filter Cleaner, and rinse. Sand filters will need back-washing. Drain water from the filter as well.
  8. Flotation device: This is used to balance the rainwater and ice that will form on the winter cover and it eases the pressure on the pool walls.
  9. Cover: These covers are stronger and more reliable than summer covers, since they’re meant to withstand rain and ice. Ensure the cover has no rips, tears, or holes. They can be patched to an extent, but replacement may be needed. There are multiple cover options, so do your research or ask your local pool companies.
  10. Store diving boards, ropes, floats, and supplies: Keep things like ladders, diving boards, pump baskets, and anything that was removed during winterization and keep them in a garage or other dry place to prevent damage.

 

Contact Pool Daddy about Pool Winterization services. You can do this process yourself, but it never hurts to have the professionals do it.

Green Pool? Here’s Why And How To Fix it!

Green Pool? Here’s Why And How To Fix it!

Green Pool in ScottsdaleAny time you suspect there’s a problem with your pool (functions, filtration, aesthetics, and more) you can always call Pool Daddy and we’ll come take a look. Green pools are a common problem and should always be taken care of quickly. Today we’ll talk about how this happens, how you can prevent it, and how it can be fixed once it happens.

Causes: It’s common to open up your pool in the Spring only to find a gross green pool! Algae is the culprit here, so do not get in the pool until the problem is addressed. Algae loves warm water, especially if it’s still. If your pool is left still for too long (with little water circulation through the filters) it’s likely to get green due to bacteria and algae.

Improper pH balance, clogged filter and weather are all factors to consider as causes of green pool. Improper pH balance leads to the algae and bacteria being able to thrive. Clogged filters keep the culprits from being properly removed (even with good pH levels) and warm water is a breeding ground for gross things.

Treatment: One method of fixing a green pool is a shock treatment. After the sun begins to set (to avoid excess sun exposure which can ruin the treatment), fill a 5-gallon bucket with water and add a bag of shock. Add it to the pool and keep the filter and pump running. Light green pools often needs 2 pounds of shock for every 10,000 gallons of water in the pool. Green to dark green water requires 3 pounds of shock for every 10,000 gallons of pool water. Dark green/black water (think “lagoon”) requires 4 pounds of shock per 10,000 gallons of water. Cloudy blue water is the goal after the shock treatment. Blue or white water means the treatment is working and it will turn gray when all of the algae is dead. Keeping the filter and pump on continuously will remove the dead algae and return the pool to the normal color. Consider checking your filters before starting this treatment (And probably getting them cleaned afterwards).

It is possible to reverse the green effects with regular and thorough cleaning, but the most effective method is the shock treatment.

Green PoolAvoiding the Green Pool Mess: Regular maintenance is the best way to battle green pools. Having the bottom of the pool vacuumed, scrubbing/vacuuming the walls, skimming the surface, cleaning/checking/replacing the filters regularly, and checking the pH and chlorine levels are all ways to prevent green pools (and even fix minor levels of green-pool-syndrome). Pool Daddy will help you set up weekly (or monthly) pool services to make sure all systems are working in harmony to prevent your pool from growing colonies of algae and bacteria. Proper winterization can also prevent the green algae, but even proper winterized pools are at risk.

If you suspect your pool is becoming infested with algae, contact us and we’ll check it out to keep your pool clean and your family swimming in clear beautiful water.

Hot Tubs Installation and Maintenance

Tags : 

Hot Tubs

With the weather getting a little cooler (though still warmer than other parts of the country) you may want to spend more time in your hot tubs—or you’re considering installing a hot tub. Today we’ll talk about the installation and maintenance of hot tubs.

Installation: Not all hot tubs require constant water supply. Many just requires the ability to fill it up with a garden hose. This can work with above-ground and in-ground versions. In-ground hot tub are generally much more expensive because it requires much more work and can include major remodeling of the surrounding area.

Hot TubsMaterials: Most hot tubs are made from man-made materials. They can be made from plaster, tile, or wood but it’s much harder to maintain. Due to the ease of installation and maintenance, most hot tubs use an acrylic tub with a fiberglass back. They provide easy cleaning and reliable insulation. Centrex (tough thermal plastic) is sometimes used in tubs, but it has color restrictions—white only. Another popular option is ABS plastic with foam or fiber backing.

Sizing: Two person hot tubs generally hold around 250 gallons while the larger 6 person tubs hold up to 500 gallons. The heating bill tends to increase by around $12 per month and the water should be replaced at least every 6 months (meaning an increase in the water bill at every refill).

Locations: Many hot tub owners opt to have their unit installed outside, but some choose inside installation in the master bedroom/bathroom. The indoor options can also include a number of different shower system, steam options, whirlpools, and more. These installations recommend additional ventilation systems for the room to decrease the chance of damage done by the increased humidity.

Features: Modern hot tubs can include many new and interesting features like: stereo/speaker combo, head rests, additional lights, exercise swim jets, and more.

Hot TubsOzonator: these devices spray ozone gas into the spa water, which kills bacteria better than bromide or chlorine without the chlorine smell. It needs to be used for a short time every day and in conjunction with other chemicals, so it cannot replace chlorine, but it’s a great additive.

Winterization: Speak with our Pool Daddy technicians when you’re ready to winterize your hot tubs, especially if you plan on shutting it off completely for a few months at a time. Any water left in the tub or piping can cause cracking and other expensive damage.

Filters: Anything with a filter needs to be checked regularly to work properly. To avoid hair or bacteria build up you cannot neglect your filter. Speak to technicians for regular maintenance or opt for programmable filtering functions available for newer hot tub models.

No matter who you are or how often you use your hot tubs or how long you’ve had your hot tubs, Pool Daddy is here to help. Schedule regular cleaning, checks, and maintenance and call us whenever you have a hot tub (or pool) related emergency to keep your water-based entertainment safe, clean, and fun year round.

Pool Tile Repair: Fix It Now or Suffer

Tags : 

Pool TilePool Tile Repair

Pool tile helps pools look new, clean, pretty, and customized. Tiles falling into disrepair can cause problems both visually and functionally. Whether it’s the tiles cracking or a deeper problem, Pool Daddy is here to help.

The biggest problems in tile repair come from pools in locations where the water has the potential to freeze. Water getting into weak seams or pre-existing cracks can cause problems—but mostly when the water is allowed to freeze. If the water in your pool has the chance to freeze (freak weather incidents, for example) water that is in an existing crack or a problem with the grout can freeze and when it begins to melt, it cracks the tile. Surrounding materials and ground can also cause problems with swelling from excess water or freezing.

Most pools are fitted with an expansion joint that helps account for any freezing that may occur. This isn’t usually a major concern in Arizona, but it can still happen. These joints should be checked periodically.

Age can lead to tiles cracking or falling off as well. Improper cleaning, careless installation, and other user/installer/maintainer errors can occur. Another way for tiles to have problems is if the water level is not being maintained properly. Pool chemicals and weather changes can affect the tile over time, meaning regular checks can help catch these problems early.

The best course of action for pool owners who are seeing cracks or loose tiles is to contact a pool maintenance company (like Pool Daddy). You can temporarily put the tiles back, but the problems will persist. After several years, even the most professionally installed tiles will begin to have problems, so don’t panic if your pool tiles are starting to have problems a few years after installation. This is often normal. A technician will help you discover the cause and work with you to rectify any issues. This can be related to the materials used to install the tile, the grout itself, the type of tiles, the water level, the type of water, the chemicals in the water, or more. Some small adjustments might be recommended to extend the life of the tile, but your pool will be good as new when we’re done with it.Pool Tile

If you don’t need your tile repaired or replaced, we can still do some tile cleaning for you. While we’re at it, we’ll take a look at your existing tile and help you prolong the beauty of your pool for as long as possible with our regular visits, cleanings, and inspections as per your request and scheduling.

Pool Heaters

Different Types Of Pool Heaters

Just like there are different types of heaters for your home, there are options for your pool. Today we’ll discuss various options with their advantages and disadvantages. Just remember, at Pool Daddy, we will service nearly all pool heaters. Even in warm climates, a heated pool is great. Cool nights can make a pool very cold, very fast. If you’re in the market for a new heating system or you’re about to have your first pool installed, check this out for some extra guidance.

Pool HeatersElectric Resistance: Electrical currents are used to create the heat. A current is applied to the resistor, heating the resistor. Water then passes over the resistor, heating the water. These pool heaters are usually used to heat small spas or therapy pools since the amount of electricity needed can be expensive for larger pools. They are used despite the high amounts of electricity, expensive installation, and high monthly operation costs because they operate independently of the air temperature and emit no air pollution.

Pool HeatersGas Heaters: Gas heaters, as the name suggests, burn natural gas or propane to generate heat. The gas is burned in a combustion chamber amongst a series of copper coils. Water runs through the coils, increasing in temperature on the voyage to the pool. These pool heaters are slightly cheaper than the electric resistance heaters and operate independently of air temperature but it can heat a pool quicker. They are also fairly expensive to maintain and are less energy efficient than the electric variety. They also tend to only last 5 years. One of the biggest turn offs of these styles of heaters in the past few years is pollution and cost of the fuel.

Pool HeatersHeat Pumps: These heating systems use electricity to transfer the heat to the pool. Some styles (Air-source heat pumps) take the air from around the pump to transfer the heat to the water. Geothermal heat pumps take heat from the water (for more information, check out the hyperlink). Heat pumps are the cheapest to operate on a monthly basis and are the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly. They can last up to 20 years, which explains the higher initial cost of the parts and installment. They can become inconvenient due to the dependence on air temperature and the slow rate of heating.

Pool HeatersSolar Heaters: Solar power is the way of the future! Only today. Solar panels are used to harness the heat from the sun. Water is then pushed through the circulation system, heating the water. Due to the nature of solar panels, most people using these types of heaters have auxiliary heaters to supplement the solar heaters during the night or cloudier days. These heaters are the most expensive upfront, but there is very minimal upkeep (no additional chemicals or products to purchase). They are very energy efficient, environmentally friendly and can last up to 20. One major turn-off most pool owners have about solar heaters is the installation of solar panels on a roof or lawn.

Hot Tubs Common Repair

Hot Tubs Common Repair

Hot tubs are wonderful ways to relax after a long day or spend a weekend evening with your significant other. Along with our weekly pool cleaning services, we also offer repairs, maintenance, and cleaning of hot tubs. Today we’ll discuss a few of the problems hot tubs can demonstrate and the parts involved.

  • Nothing will turn on! This could be a fuse, switch, or something in the wiring. Most of these issues require high levels of electrical training to avoid injury. Never attempt to do this on your own.
  • The temperature is all wrong! This can be caused by problems with a switch or relay, a filter cartridge, thermostat, or the heating element. Whether your hot tub won’t heat up or it gets dangerously hot we have the tools to fix these problems.
  • The Pumps aren’t working correctly! This can relate to any number of switches, relays, and motors but it can also be the time clock or thermostat. Like with cars, this can be caused by a very small problem with cheap parts or it can mean a lot more labor intensive work. Don’t let a little lost pressure or increased pressure lead to major safety issues. Contact us the moment you feel something is amiss.
  • Lights issues: this can be a switch, transformer, fuse, or just the lamp. These shouldn’t affect the effectiveness of the hot tubs but should be checked on in case there’s a larger issue.
  • Burnt wires or melted insulation: This is likely issues with the terminal connections. Do not let these issues go unchecked.
  • Hot TubsLeaks, cracks, and pump issues: These are fairly common issues and can lead to a waste of water and an ineffective hot tub. Leaks may be something simple like seals, valves, or pipes but it can also be bigger issues like the heater manifold or something in the jets. A small leak can lead to bigger leaks, cracks, and leakage into the electrical components.

One major difference between hot tubs and pools is the electricity. Hot tubs have large numbers of chords, fuses, and electrical components in a small space and any problem should be addressed as soon as possible. If you feel there may be a problem regarding the electrical system of your hot tubs, drain the water if possible and remove it from the power source. This will reduce the risk of short circuiting or damage to people and property. Call Pool Daddy immediately to schedule a visit. If you are taking advantage of our weekly pool services you can ask about hot tub weekly or monthly service as well. We will check for cracks and possible future issues. We can’t predict everything but we may catch something before you do.

Pool Party For Thanksgiving Celebration

Thanksgiving Pool Party Celebration

Pool Party

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching—as seen by stores setting up Christmas decorations and displays already. If you’re struggling for ideas for your family or friends Thanksgiving celebration, consider throwing a pool party! It sounds insane for most of the country but Phoenix is begging for it! With average high temperatures at 70 degrees or higher, there’s no excuse not to enjoy your pool in November—especially if you have a hot tub or Jacuzzi for when it gets dark!

When you’ve spent hours upon hours cooking in a hot kitchen preparing the perfect turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes it would feel sublime to jump in the pool before serving dinner. Most of the country can’t enjoy warm weather in November but you can! Heated pools can provide relaxation, warmth, and cooling effects year round in the right climates.

You may be asking yourself “shouldn’t you wait an hour after eating to swim?” and you’re correct to think that because we’ve all been told that since childhood. As convincing as our parents were in telling us this, it’s a myth. Even if it were true, eating an early dinner provides your company with plenty of time to digest before taking a relaxing dip. Later dinner allows for pre-dinner swims to build up an appetite. Regardless of the time of the meal, swimming before and/or after such a big meal can be fun, relaxing, and energizing.

Pull out the floaties, turn on the Jacuzzi, and bring out the beach ball and take a dip this Thanksgiving. You have the day off for a reason; enjoy it before the temperature drops a little more.  Get in that inner-tube or pool lounger and digest the tryptophan and starch in the most relaxing way possible. Forget that your aunt and uncle had a fight at the table or that your nephews and nieces were screaming because you ran out of pumpkin pie.

After the kids are all taking their food-coma induced naps and your in-laws go home, why not turn on the jets and pull out the bubbly and relax in a hot tub with your closest friends and coolest family members. If you’re into Black Friday shopping, use this time to prep your body for the pushing and shoving to come.

Pool PartyIf you’re not fond of sharing your pool with your relatives, invite your friends over the next day and eat all the leftovers pool-side in the early afternoon. Keep cool and enjoy the 4-day weekend.

No matter what you do this Thanksgiving weekend, you can contact us for weekly pool cleaning or preventative repairs and maintenance. You can even ask us about some renovations or changes to make your Thanksgiving memorable. Also, if your creepy uncle spills gravy in the pool or the kids throw their pie at each other pool-side we can help clean the pool to its pristine glory before your Christmas party.
