FAQs

  • Q.How long does it take to install an inground pool?
  • A.Weather permitting it should take three days for a typical inground pool installation.
  • Q.When can I swim after installation?
  • A.We recommend you swim after four days of installation! Let the chemicals circulate for 24 hours before you start enjoying the inground pool.
  • Q.Do you install the pool only, or can you complete the yard with surrounding concrete, pavers, etc.?
  • A.We are a licensed contracting company. If you would like us to contract your entire project, we provide design services to help bring paradise to your backyard. We work with some of the finest craftsmen, each master at their trade to meticulously execute the job at hand.
  • Q.What are the benefits of vinyl liner steps vs. fiberglass?
  • A.Over time, fiberglass steps can crack, fade and stain, to say the least. Steel or poured steps with ¼” foam padding and vinyl liner covering can always be changed or patched over time, if necessary. For example, if it’s time to change your liner, you get a fresh set of steps. However, if you have old fiberglass steps, you are stuck with them for life if you do not want to rip out your surrounding deck to replace them.
  • Q.What are the benefits of a salt water pool vs. chlorine?
  • A.Don’t be mistaken, even a salt water pool has chlorine. All pools, be it salt or chlorine, have to start with a chlorine base. Salt coupled with stabilizer are then used to maintain your chlorine levels. The pool water containing salt passes through an inline cell, which, through the process of electrolysis, turns the salt in the water to Hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid is the same component that is produced when any chlorine is added to pool water. As the water returns to the pool, it will introduce the newly produced chlorine. Salt is not a chemical, so your “salt” chlorine is less harmful to your skin and eyes.
  • Q.Does Chlorine or Salt corrode my other pool equipment?
  • A.Yes, over time chlorine and salt can corrode your equipment. To help eliminate this issue, we install a zinc anode system with every new pool installation. An in-line zinc anode is attached to the bonding wire, thereby protecting all metal parts (heaters, lights, rails, pumps, etc.) from galvanic corrosion.
  • Q.Can a zinc anode be installed to my existing pool?
  • A.Yes, our technicians can install a zinc anode system.
  • Q.Can I convert my pool into salt water after it’s been installed?
  • A.Yes, a salt cell and control panel can be installed on an existing chlorine pool.
  • Q.How many hours per day should I run my filter?
  • A.Running your filter depends on the outside temperature. Since salt and chlorine are not generated when the water temperature in the pool is less than 60 degrees, it is recommended to run your pool for at least 4 hours/day. As the temperature increases, your pool should be left to run longer. A pool of approximately 400sqft should run 8 hours a day on average during the summer months.
  • Q.What are my options for inground pool automation?
  • A.We highly recommend the Hayward Omnilogic Automation system. With this system you are able to operate your entire pool, water features and outdoor/landscape lighting via your phone or Alexa. This allows you to synchronize your lights, set timers, create light shows, and turn on your heater, etc. from anywhere!
  • Q.Does automation work with my current home automation or Alexa?
  • A.Hayward Omnilogic works with most home automation systems and is compatible with Alexa.
  • Q.I have water under my liner. Can you fix a floating liner?
  • A.Yes, we have the solution to fix your floating liner forever. We have a 100% success rate with our methodology.
  • Q.If I have fiberglass steps, can I switch to liner steps after my pool has been installed?
  • A.The best time to change the appearance of your pool is when you need to change your liner. At this time we would remove the existing fiberglass steps and change the entrance into your pool with either a steel step or handmade block and concrete steps. However, keep in mind this project may result in damage to the surrounding pool deck.
  • Q.Can I change the depth of my pool?
  • A.Yes, you can! We suggest making this change when you need to replace your liner. Our team can fill in/or dig out your deep end to make it more conducive to your needs.
  • Q.Can you run a spill-over spa all year round?
  • A.Being that your spill-over spa works in conjunction with your pool equipment, it will shut down on closing the inground pool.
