Are you a new pool owner? Do you need to learn a few things?

New Pool Owner instructions:
  • We can show you everything you need to know to do it yourself the right way the first time.
  • We can even clean the filter out while we are there and show you how while we are doing it.
  • We can show you what test kit to buy to properly test your pool water.
  • Set your valves in the proper direction and show how to properly adjust them and give you options for automation if you choose to upgrade to an automatic remote system.
  • Pool inspection - make sure everything on your pool is working properly.
  • Test your lights to make sure they are properly wired to a working GFI so they turn off if water gets inside the pool / spa light. This is very important for safe swimming with the lights on. All pools should have their lights tested a few times per year.

Energy Efficient Pumps, also known as Variable Speed Pumps

We are a certified installer! This means you will have a 3 year warranty from the manufacture. If you choose an installer that is not certified you will have no warranty!

These pumps run at a lower speed but for a longer length of time. They always have the option to go to the higher speed if you need it for Spa mode or for water features. These pumps can save home owners up to $1,500 per year. Imagine if you had the pump for ten years. You would be saving $15,000 at the ten year mark. What would you do with an extra $15,000 that came from your pool pump?

Pool/ Spa Inspection Service:

If you are buying or selling a home with a pool or spa, you need a professional to inspect the pool and all of the equipment to make sure it is working properly. We can also check to make sure the chemicals are within range of where they need to be.

Does your pool have stains?

Acid washing

We can inspect your plaster to see if it is in good enough condition for an acid wash. If it is we can drain the pool and give it an acid wash that will bring the original plaster color to life. It will really brighten up the pool and make it look new again! More about Acid Wash

Chlorine Washing:

Does your pool have bad algae stains? It may be best to do a chlorine wash first and then an acid wash after to remove any algae stains that are deep in the plaster. We can check the plaster out and make a decision of what your pool needs to completely remove the stains.

Does your pool / spa tile have that horrible calcium buildup all over it?

Pool Tile Cleaning & Repair Services

We find the best way for most tiles to be cleaned is with a high speed polishing wheel using abrasive pads. There are other ways to clean tile but when you polish the calcium off with an abrasive pad and then a polishing pad, your tile will have sheen on it that will make your pool look new again. On certain occasions, mostly tile with have calcium build up we may need to take further action removing the calcium sometimes using a bead blaster. After calcium is removed we have anti calcium chemicals that will not allow the calcium to form on the tile again! We put this chemical call “Scale Tec” in the water. It really helps prevent calcium buildup, and we have noticed it almost eliminates calcium buildup in the salt systems! We use a tile sealer after the calcium is removed. It protects the tile and gives a nice shine.

Does your pool need a new deck seal?

Mastic / Deck seal replacement

The deck seal is very important. When rain water or any water falls down into the cracked deck seal it will eventually cause problems with the construction of the pool. This is caused by the erosion of the dirt underground that is actually supporting your pool. It is usually $5.00 per foot to replace the deck seal. We can stop by to give a free estimate.

Is your pool water very old?

Pool Draining and new water chemical startup

When your pool water reaches about 5 years old, your TDS (total dissolved solids) will continue to rise. High TDS can cause staining and problems balancing the water properly. The latest solution is to call a company in that has a trailer with a reverse osmosis system that can properly filter out and remove the TDS from the water. This does cost more money but it does save water and it is the right thing to do especially when California is in a drought. The second way is to just simply drain the pool and add the proper chemicals to the new water. You must be careful not to add too much stabilizer / conditioner!

New pool?

New Plaster Start-up:

Your new pool whether it is plaster or pebble tec needs to have the water balanced. Something as simple as too soft of water can completely ruin a new pool. We can make sure your new pool has water that is perfectly balanced so there are no problems with the plaster curing. This is an area that South OC Pools has more experience than the competition. We have done hundreds of new pool startups in Orange County for the local builders in the area.

Does your pool / spa light need to be fixed?

Lighting for your pool / spa

It may just need a light bulb, but what about the GFI? We can make sure your ground fault interrupter is properly shutting off your lights when it senses a problem. You must have a working GFI with your pool / spa lights. If it is not working properly this is a hazard and the pool should not be used, even if the lights are off. The new LED lights can save you money! They use much less energy and they even have COLOR options. Combined with an automation system you can change the color of your pool lights with your phone or remote system.

Is your filter clogged?

Filter Cleaning Service:

When we clean filters we make sure every part is in working order. The grids, o-rings, backwash valve, Air release, Pressure Gauge, internal air release. If any of these need to be replaced we will notify the home owner and we usually have these on our trucks and can replace them right away while we clean the filter. Make sure you have your filter cleaned at least 2 times per year or as needed. If the pressure gauge keeps rising this is a warning that the parts inside will actually crush from the pressure of the filter pump. The price for filter cleaning is $85 and any parts that need replacing is extra.

Did your pool turn green on you?

Green Pool clean up

There is always a reason the pool turned green. They can turn green over night if the chemicals are not balanced and if the yard fertilizer gets in the pool, it will turn green very fast. We can give you an estimate has your pool looking the way it’s supposed to very fast. We will even let you know why it turned green. We have test kits that can test for the common chemical in fertilizer. If this chemical is present we will then add chemicals to remove it from the water.

Is your pool remote not working? Tired of turning the valves by hand?

Pool / Spa automation troubleshooting and new installation

If your pool remote is not working, give us a call. We are experts in fixing pool remote controls. If you are tired of turning the valves manually we can give you an estimate on an automation system. The new systems even have the capability to control your pool using your phone / tablet or computer.

Salt Systems installation and troubleshooting

We can convert your pool to a salt pool. If you have a salt pool and your salt system is not working properly we do fix those and we are very good at it! It may be something simple as a bad sensor or not enough salt in the water. We can give you an estimate on a new installation or repairing your salt system. What we have learned to love about salt systems is that they can make the pool water last longer. If you compare the usage to a normal chlorine tablet fed pool, these chlorine tablets contain conditioner also known as stabilizer (cyunaric acid). When you keep putting tablets in the chlorine floater or feeder the conditioner levels in the pool will slowly rise. It will eventually get too high and you will have to drain the pool to avoid staining. The great thing about salt systems is when the salt is transformed into chlorine using electrolysis, there are no by-products. Just pure chlorine! This drastically lowers the rate at which the TDS (total dissolved solids rises) and makes your pool last much longer. Salt systems save water and they are less irritating to your skin and eyes!
