Did you know a swimming pool can go up to three years before draining and filling with new water depending on your location, maintenance and use of the pool. Most of the time, a partial drainage is all that’s necessary. Hot tub water should be replaced every three months, depending on use. If your pool and spa water does not contain algae or other debris, is free of chlorine and other pool chemicals, and has a pH level between 6.0 and 10.5, it can be discharged into the storm drain as per City of Austin Water Utility. Check with your local ordinance if you do not live in the City of Austin. Call us for assistance on what’s appropriate for your pool or spa. – (512) 636-4184

You can reduce your pool's energy consumption by using a properly-sized, high-efficiency pool pump and by operating it less. Your swimming pool may have an oversized pump, which might be more powerful and energy consuming than a 0.75 horsepower that may be sufficient. Also,if you are using a single-speed pump, you might be using more energy than you need to keep your water clean. Consider replacing your single-speed pool pump with a two-speed or variable-speed unit to cut your energy consumption. Not only do they provide efficient circulation, but variable speed pumps also tend to operate more quietly than most single speed models. Also, you may be eligible for rebates from Austin Energy. Call us at (512) 636-4184 for more information.

[01/24/14]   Hope everyone is keeping warm in this cold weather. It's pretty frosty, but a good lead into today's equipment safety tip - Swimming pool heater exhaust vents should be located away from windows, air conditioners, or roof overhangs so that exhaust gases (which are poisonous) will not enter any buildings in the area. Check with your pool professional for regulations concerning the location of heater exhaust relative to buildings. Also make sure there are no leaves or debris on or around the heater.
