If you own a pool, you need to read this article.
If you are unhappy with your pool or dissatisfied with the service maintaining it, you absolutely must read the entire article.
This info will change how you view your pool and the relationship between your pool, your equipment, and your service provider.
This article will be oversimplified and appear rough at first, but we are attempting to quickly cover a bunch of info, so here it goes.
"time+money+chemicals+fuel = cost."
If you have a pool maintenance company, their primary goal is to service your pool as rapidly and inexpensively as possible.
I'm not bashing service providers; most are hard-working, decent guys; this is just reality.
This doesn't mean you're getting ripping you off; it's simply the business model of the pool cleaning industry.
Now throw into the mix that most service providers have no more than a baseline linear knowledge of pool chemistry and pool technology?
Most of them won't even utilize automation apps installed on the pools they service?
So to sum it up, if someone is maintaining your pool right now, there's a high probability that you've hired a service that succeeds by providing you less, not more.
THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD!
Now you know why so many pool owners can't find a pool service provider that they're happy with.
Now the good news, along with some fantastic info.
Did you know that a quality pool service provider can be a tremendous Godsend?
They can offer you intelligent solutions that will help them meet their goals while keeping you happy and saving you money!
Check out how these options for better pool water can radically change the game.
We recommended the technologies below
We believe in this tech so much that we install it on all of our signature pools.
We could spend a very long time explaining each one of these technological advancements in detail. However, as we said, we want to inform you first, then you can dig as much as you like.
Below we'll list the technologies we believe are game-changers.
1- UV systems - Ultraviolet can sterilize pool water without chemicals.
If you remember the Ebola outbreak of 2014, and now covid, a UV robot named "Saul" made his debut and did not disappoint.
"Saul," the UV robot, made by a San Antonio based company called Xenex, proved to be a germ-killing machine.
It's been well documented that UV is a power hitter in the world of disinfection.
Multiple medical studies have shown that UV can disinfect at a highly effective level that is changing the way hospitals view disinfection and even the use of bleach (chlorine).
It's the real deal!
2 - AFM (Activated Filter Media) - glass filtration media that can be put into a standard sand filter in place of the sand media.
This stuff filters down to around 4 microns, prevents algae, prevents biofilm, recharges with backwash, and it never needs to be replaced. Yes, it can outlast your filter.
3 - Mineral Induction Combination Systems - these units combine anti-microbial minerals into the pool water that automatically delivers bacteria and algae-fighting elements in combination with optimized chlorine induction for cleaner, more comfortable pool water that requires less maintenance.
4 - Centrifugal Water Pre-Filtration - a revolutionary new stage process which captures 80% of the particulate load before it ever reaches your filter. The separated solids are caught in a collection chamber while the clean water is directed back into the system.
Pre-filters can reduce maintenance by over 75%, minimize filter wear, reduce backwashing by over 50%, which keeps water and chemicals in the pool. This saves water which is always a good thing for the environment and your water bill.
So, there you go.
These are some of the technologies that get missed that will give you a more efficient, cleaner and healthier pool.
