Q: Should I handle pool repairs myself, or hire a professional?
A: A professional should always perform large repair projects such as tile repair, liner repair, replastering, and major equipment repairs. Smaller pool repairs such as small equipment replacement can be performed by anyone.
Q: How do I know how many gallons of water are in my pool?
A: To determine the total gallons of your pool, follow these simple equations:
Length X Width X Average Depth X 7.5 = total Gallons
Diameter X Diameter X Average Depth X 5.9 = total Gallons
Long Diameter X Short Diameter X Average Depth X 5.9 = total Gallons
Q: Why is controlling my pool’s pH so important?
A: pH is the measure of alkalinity or acidity in your pool. Pools with unbalanced pH levels are uncomfortable for bathers and can cause eye irritations, skin discomfort, and hair and bathing suit bleaching. Too much acidity in a pool is corrosive to pipes, filters and metal fixtures. Too much alkalinity in a pool causes “scales” to adhere to metal fixtures and reduces the effectiveness of chlorine.
