Energy Efficient Pump Installation

Starting July 1st 2011 a new law goes into effect banning the single speed pumps that we have been installing for years here in the Orlando area. The reason for this ban is that these pumps are quite frankly energy hogs compared to the newer energy efficient pumps. The only thing that consumes more electricity at the typical home is the air conditioner. Many pool builders have been putting in bigger and bigger pumps as the years pass by. I can remember when I was just starting out about 20 years ago when almost every pool had just a 1HP…

A Move Toward More Efficient Swimming Pools

This month's Aqua magazine (for spa and pool professionals) reports a movement in the industry toward more efficient swimming pools.  The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals is working to establish national efficiency standards under APSP-15.  In the past, efforts like these have come haphazardly at the state and local levels through laws and regulations.  APSP-15 will offer the industry a more uniform standard. What does this mean for your pool?  Aqua reports, Pool efficiency laws are ushering in a new age of pool equipment design for residential pools.  The movement is having a strong effect on the way the pool circulatory system is put…

Are you ready for a Pool Heater Orlando?

As far back as the first century BC people began enjoying heated swimming pools.  This was when Gaius Maecenas, a rich Roman lord and patron of the arts, built the first heated swimming pool*.  I'm guessing that just as we are feeling a touch of spring in the air here in Orlando, Gaius felt that same way and was ready to take a dip long before the water was warm enough.  Despite our warm Orlando afternoons and sunny days it is not quite swim season and your pool water is likely to be fairly cold.  You can easily extend your swimming season - and start swimming now…

Swimming Pool Handrail Installation in Orlando

This week we installed a pool handrail for an Orlando Police Officer that needed some help getting into and out of her pool and spa. She was in a car accident while on duty and is now disabled. The use of her swimming pool and spa is to help with therapy from ongoing operations she must have. We can install swimming pool handrails, ladders, slides and diving boards on any type of deck. This installation was on a concrete deck and took about two hours per handrail to complete. Due to Florida and Orange County building codes all swimming pool…

Commercial Pool Maintenance Florida

This week in Orlando, I took on a project for a commercial pool pump repair. This was for a large community pool in the west Orlando area in the city of Winter Garden. The scope of work included replacing a large 5 horsepower pump, a broken ball valve, and fix plumbing leaks. Even though our quote wasn’t the lowest of all the bids, the Homeowners Association went with us because of our Professionalism and attention to detail. Many commercial pools have their equipment stored in a large container called a vac-pac. This container protects the equipment from the…

Orlando Pool Filter Valve Repair

We have many unique tools that enable us to work on and repair pool equipment that a vast majority of other Orlando pool repair companies do not have. For this repair, the pool filter valve also known as a multiport valve needed the spring to be changed in order to stop water leaking out of the discharge line. You will usually find these valves on a Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filters as well as on sand filters. These valves are used to backwash your filter tank when it gets dirty as well as draining your pool when the…
