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 Cleaners Tricky Services That You Should Be Aware

Tags : 

Pool CleanersBeware of Tricky Pool Cleaners

Services from Pool Daddy will always be done correctly the first time and we pride ourselves with honesty and conduct business with integrity. There are things some pool companies do that we would like to warn you about. Here are 5 things some pool companies may do to you.

  1. Skip your home. Some pool cleaners will skip homes when they are behind schedule. Reputable companies will not skip appointments if they can avoid it. The right company will either reschedule or inform you of the problem and work something out. Some companies, however, will just skip and hope you don’t call the company and ask about it. Check with your pool cleaning service provider if you have been missed or if there was some other issue.
  2. High turnover rate of employees. Smaller companies tend to keep a close knit group of employees far better than larger companies. Larger companies can afford to train multiple people but often don’t train them past the minimum requirements. You gain a much more intimate relationship with smaller local companies since they tend to take pride and time in training technicians who are trained in the chemistry, engineering, plumbing, and other required fields for proper pool maintenance. Be leery of companies who seem to have new groups of technicians at every visit and ask about the training provided to employees.
  3. Changing fees or charging more for chemicals. While the expected or agreed upon cost may change depending on the season, services provided, and gas prices, the price shouldn’t randomly increase beyond a discussed flat rate. General chemicals like chlorine shouldn’t change the cost significantly, but special ordered chemicals or products may. Regardless of amount used, a fixed amount should be applied for the use of chemicals.
  4. Used parts in maintenance. While there may be nothing wrong with a used part (installed for one season, refurbished, etc) some companies may be using parts which are likely to break or malfunction due to age or amount of previous use. Insist upon knowing the age and prior usage of any parts involved in repairs. If they refuse to tell you, there’s a good chance it’s a cheap used part.Pool Cleaners
  5. Be aware of regulations. Some states only require tax based information and minimal licensing to open up a pool cleaning and maintenance company and some companies may sub out repairs to other companies. Make sure you are aware of the licensing and any third party companies involved in your pool maintenance, cleaning, and repair. Do your research and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

At Pool Daddy you will receive highly trained technicians who care about providing work done correctly the first time. Check out sites like Angie’s List to read about companies and gather some tips for choosing the right pool cleaners or other service provider.

Pool Daddy At Your Service

Pool Daddy

Last week we talked about some of our general services offered with Pool Daddy. Much of what we will talk about today is the lesser-thought of services we offer.

Pool filters need sand. Specific sands work best with pool filters and the wrong sand or too much of it can cause problems. This sand is also filled with bacteria by the time a change is needed and our professionals have the best equipment to keep all of the grime and bacteria away from your loved ones. This job can be done without full training, but at our prices you’d be crazy to do it on your own. Hiring us for your sand changing needs reduces the stress on your body and the worry of doing it right. The best part of this? The sand only needs to be changed every few years!

Pool heaters help keep a pool comfortable and refreshing year round! You wouldn’t think much of a pool heater in Arizona, but with those cool nights pools can retain cold temperatures for hours after sunrise. A cold pool may be refreshing in the middle of the summer during the peak temperature hours, but for a nice relaxing afternoon in the pool, slightly heated pools are great, and at night they’re even better a little warmer! We’ll keep your heater working properly so you can use your pool all day, every day if you want. Better yet, have us help with your heating pumps and we’ll hook you up with an amazing system which takes the heat from the outside air and transfers that heat into the water, saving your power system.

Above ground Jacuzzis are a great addition to any home. These require much less initial set up than in ground spas and Jacuzzis. Cleaning, maintenance, repair, setup; Pool Daddy will help you keep your unit running smoothly so you can enjoy it year round.

2012 brought in the new standardization of 2 speed or variable pumps in pools in Arizona. These pumps help keep your pool clean since all water must pass through the filters at some point, keeping contaminants out of your water. If you have not yet upgraded or want to make sure your pump is up to standards and working properly, call Pool Daddy and we’ll help you out. Our technicians know these things inside and out.

Pool DaddyEven with the best filters, your pool will need some cleaning details performed. Tile can become gross over time and even the best at-home cleaning supplies might not help. Our technicians will clean your tile with ease and restore your tile to a sheen you’ll want to show off ASAP. We also offer pressure washing to remove algae, dirt, and bacteria off of tile, walkways, and more. This low-energy consumption method is safe, powerful, and lasting.

Some people opt to have a salt water pool and these work differently than the standard chlorine types. Those who want a touch of the ocean or simply dislike other methods choose salt water and should be aware of the increased amounts of attention they will need. Our technicians are trained in the upkeep and maintenance of these systems as well so you don’t have to stress about whether you should have gone with the more conventional method when problems arise. Call us and we’ll help you prevent any future issues and keep your pool clean.

Finally, whether you’re swimming a few laps before breakfast or relaxing in your spa after dinner, lights in your pool are functional and pleasant. The right lights can change the entire mood while in your oasis. Keep your lights operating at full capacity year round so you never have to worry about swimming from sunup to sundown.

Keep you and your loved ones safe with every aspect of Pool Daddy’s maintenance, cleaning, and repair services!

Pool Daddy, No One Does It Better!

Pool DaddyPool Daddy Services

Welcome to Pool Daddy, your solution to all of your pool maintenance needs in the Phoenix Metro area.  Some companies only offer cleaning, some only do repairs, and some will overcharge you. At Pool Daddy, we do nearly anything related to pools, and we won’t charge your first born child. Today we’ll talk about some of our pool services, next week we’ll discuss the rest.

If you have a pool and you don’t have the time, energy, or expertise to keep it up, call us. We offer weekly services for general maintenance. Trained technicians will inspect the clarity, color, and contaminant levels of the water after a thorough removal of debris. Next, the pH is tests alongside the chlorine and alkalinity levels. If any of these settings are not satisfactory, they will be adjusted during our visit. The water level will be checked to ensure the proper function of the pump and filters will be checked and maintained. Tile and the sides of the pool will be scrubbed and an algaecide may be applied if the technician feels it’s necessary. Weekly cleaning will keep your pool clean and running well all year long. It can also heavily reduce the chance of problems which will need repair and if the repair is needed, our technicians will fix it on the spot (additional fees will apply) or they can schedule the repair.

Whether you have a personal pool at your home or you run a hotel, motel, apartment complex, or public swimming pool, we’re here to clean and inspect your pool. While cleaning can prevent many issues with equipment and sanitation, inspections go deeper. Inspections fully investigate the quality and functionality of pumps, heaters, filters, and check the pool tile and near-by areas for cracks or other potentially hazardous problems. This will keep you, your family, and/or your tenants healthy and cool in the hot summer sun. It’ll also keep your Jacuzzi’s, spas, and pools at the perfect temperature year-round.

General repairs can be time consuming and costly when done through the wrong people. Sure, there may be some parts you can replace yourself, or you may feel confident in your ability to repair the pool pump. Someone who isn’t fully trained may end up causing more damage than was initially there.  Our technicians are fully trained and will come to your location to give a fair estimate “(with a $45 service call fee, which will be waived with repair).

There’s almost nothing grosser than a green pool. Algae and other bacteria or grown can cause many health problems to those using the pool and those around you. While chlorine is designed to decrease the green mess, it will not fully prevent it. Regular cleaning will keep a pool fresh, but should your pool go green, we’ll find out why and restore your pool back to the oasis-like beauty. This process may take several hours or a few days, but in the end it’s worth it. Never enter a pool which looks green, or you may end up feeling green yourself. Do yourself and those around you a favor and call us.

These are some of the basic, common services Pool Daddy offers. Next week we’ll discuss more specific services like tile cleaning, Jacuzzi repair, and pressure washing. Send us a message from our website and let’s begin getting your pool and recreation back on track. Summer may be nearing the end, but that doesn’t mean your fun in the sun has to cease!

 


Yepp! Give us a call when you are looking for professionalism in all your pool needs.
