We understand proper pool and spa maintenance is a big responsibility for home owners and commercial properties. For commercial pool maintenance the health and safety of swimmers in Orange County & Los Angeles depends upon proper water balance and care of equipment, and the equipment will depend heavily on the correct amount of chemical balance in order to avoid costly repairs which must be recorded at least 3x per day for state inspections. Pool and spa downtime can cost the pool facility money as well as the potential loss of customers. We always like to remind our commercial clientele that commercial pool equipment is expensive and needs to be serviced and maintained regularly.
When it comes to pool pumps, filtration, and resurfacing/ pool plaster, we like emphasize proper pool maintenance with chemical and equipment handling as the inability to manage these correctly can cost your property thousands is pool repairs. Proper water chemistry maintenance will avoid these long-term costly aquatic pool resurfacing and equipment issues. In regards to pool heater repair, low calcium water will attack metal fittings and heat ex-changers resulting in destruction of the fittings or pinhole leaks in the heater, not to mention when such corrosion occurs, it is also common for stains to appear on pool surfaces.

Pool Maintenance & Chemistry
It is important for your pool and spa maintenance to remain appropriately regulated and on-point when dealing with water chemistry. Without proper swimming pool maintenance and water chemistry balance, your pool plaster will deteriorate quicker than that of a pool with appropriate chemical balance resulting in you having to hire a pool resurfacing company like us to come in and fix an issue that could have been avoided.
We install professional auto-feeder chemistry regulators on our commercial property as well as some larger residential swimming pools, this is a great way to reduce your pool repair liability.
Frequently Asked Questions Related to Your Pool and Spa Services
I have a green pool. What is happening?
Like other types of pool equipment, regular maintenance is required for pool filters. When pressure remains high on your water feature filter, it is a sign that maintenance is required. Either refer to your owner's manual or talk to a professional pool service company about doing maintenance on your filter.
Why do I have high filter pressure?
Like other types of equipment, regular maintenance is required for pool filters. When pressure remains high on your filter, it is a sign that maintenance is required. Either refer to your owner's manual or talk to a professional about doing maintenance on your filter.
What is causing a white build up on my pool's water line?
When this happens, you most likely have high levels of calcium in your pool. This is also known as total water hardness. There are a couple of ways to solve this. Your best option is to add water softener or hire a pool tile cleaning company such as us.
How can the built up calcium be removed from my pool's water line?
This can be a difficult task. Consider hiring a professional pool tile company like ourselves or try fixing yourself. It might take a couple of months, but you can treat the water with chemicals after raising the water level above the line of calcium to remove it. On the other hand, a pumice stone and some elbow grease will work as well.
When does my D.E. filter need to be backwashed?
The owner's manual will have information about when your pool filter should be backwashed. The timing takes an increase in pressure into account. In general, when the pressure is 10-12 psi higher than it was when the filter was last taken apart and properly cleaned is the right time to maintain your pool equipment.
Why won't water prime my pump?
The most common type of problem with pumps that won't prime is an air leak on the side of the pump that provides suction. The fitting where the pump meets the plumbing is the most common site of the leak. In addition, a valve on the same side may be allowing air to enter.
Why does the D.E. shoot out of the pool returns when I pre-coat my D.E. filter?
Something such as a grid with a hole in it or an internal air bleed may be broken in the filter. When you clean the filter, be sure that all components are thoroughly inspected. Consider having your pool filter repaired or reviewed by a professional pool repair company.
You have service packages. Which one is best for me?
There are a variety of factors to consider before you select a pool service package - such as how many gallons of water will need to be maintained, the pool plaster condition, what type of pool equipment you have, and the amount of foliage around the pool. That's why we assess each pool's individual needs before we provide our free quotes.
Why does my pool constantly require that I add water?
There are many contributing factors to this problem. Water is removed from your pool due to evaporation due to the heat during summer. In addition, the possibility of leaks in the equipment pad should be checked out. Squishy patches or puddles of water are signs of a water leak. A leak detection specialist can professionally locate a leak if you cannot clearly identify one. Consider having your pool acid-washed or replastered if needed.
How long does my pump need to run?
The length of time that your pool pump should run will depend on many different variables. However, during the winter months, we would suggest three to four hours each day. If you are in a state where temperatures dip below freezing, the pool equipment and pump should be run continuously. Six to eight hours of daily pump operation are recommended for the peak summer months. Keep in mind that these times will vary depending upon the individual circumstances.
How often should the skimmer baskets be cleaned?
How often your skimmer baskets need to be cleaned out is dependent upon how much vegetation surrounds your pool and how much of that vegetation makes its way into the baskets. At least once per day, you should check them. While remaining conscious of the changing seasons, you can reduce the number of times you check it to once every two days if you notice that they don't fill up. There is more foliage that falls into pools during autumn.
How often should my pool cleaner's bag be changed?
Again, make a determination about how often to change the bag based upon how much vegetation makes its way into your skimmers. Make a habit of checking once per day or hiring a pool company to offer weekly maintenance and do this. You can decrease this and add another day before checking when the bags remain clear. However, as the seasons change, increase how often you check because conditions do change.
Why is my pool light broken?
If the pool light is not working there could be several causes. The most common problems can be categorized into two groups. The light is not working and has power; or the light is not working and does not have power. The corrective action is replacing the either the pool or spa light bulb or the whole fixture. Consider hiring a pool light repair company to fix this to avoid any potential injury.
Why is my pool and spa heater not working?
Typically we receive customers calling us who aren't happy with their pool or spa heating, these are the first things we look for when diagnosing a pool or spa heater.
- The thermostat may be set too low.
- Inadequate gas supply.
- Malfunctioning thermostat.
- You are losing heat faster then you are adding it. (If the heat loss in the pool is greater than the heat input, the heater might be too small or you may need a thermal barrier). Use a thermal barrier to help prevent heat loss
How to diagnose a broken salt-water generator?
When our customers have issues with their pool salt water generators these are the typical issues we see when diagnosing the salt water generator.
Corroded handrail and ladder anchors - The high salinity level of the water does cause galvanized deck anchors to corrode prematurely.
High Chlorine - One of the greatest advantages of salt water systems is that you reap the benefits of a chlorine pool without the adverse effects associated with chlorine.
Cell Replacement - Although salt chlorinators typically cost less during a given season than chlorine, there will come a day when the cell, which is the component of the machine that converts salt to chlorine, will fail.
Tough on Auto Covers - There’s simply no getting around this one. Salt systems are tough on the metal components of automatic covers.
Corrodes vinyl liner pool walls - This applies to inground and above ground vinyl liner pools with metal walls. Most vinyl pool builders today use polymer/plastic walls, so this is not so much an issue with new construction of liner pools.
What do I do about my pool plaster startup?
The start up is a very critical process required on all newly plastered swimming pools and spas. New plaster releases dust that must be properly brushed and vacuumed daily (for 5 consecutive days) otherwise the dust will stick to the surface and tarnish the appearance of the plaster. The start-up also includes a proper balancing of the pool’s water chemistry. The duration of the start-up is roughly a week (5 days) and we highly recommend hiring us OR another professional to perform the service.
