  • Why is Salt Chlorination a good thing?

    Salt Chlorination has many benefits, the first being the condition of the water. With Salt Chlorination, you’ll find the water to be soft and silky to the touch. You will also find that red eyes are no longer an issue and that the common smell of bleach found in traditional factory produced chlorine pools is no longer a factor. The second benefit is the convenience of not having to buy and transport heavy buckets of chlorine. Furthermore, a Salt Chlorinator system regulates for the customer the amount of chlorine in their pool and allows the pool to stay in a more balanced state automatically. The final benefit is the cost. It allows the customer to save 50% or more on the chlorine cost.

  • How long does it take to remodel a swimming pool?

    A swimming pool remodel time frame depends on the scope of work being done. If you are simply doing a retile and interior finish, you can expect the process to take two to three weeks from the start of the remodel to the firing up of the pool. Should the scope of work include more elaborate details such as adding a sun shelf, rock water feature or new decking as well as new tile and a new interior finish, plan on adding approximately a week to the original two-to-three week time frame for each additional feature being added.
