Real Stories From Real Customers

Our customers love The Pool Lady, and we think you will too!

Absolutely wonderful family business! Very responsive and reasonable prices , they go above and beyond for any call-large or small. We are first-time pool owners and inherited a mess last year with our new house. The Pool Lady came over right away and explained pool chemistry to us as well as getting us on the right track with making our pool clean and sparkling! The opening this year has been just as smooth. Very pleased and recommend The Pool Lady to anyone who asks, "Who does your pool?"

    Frequently Asked Questions

    +
    What does pool maintenance include?
    Pool maintenance includes: skimming debris from the surface, vacuuming the bottom, brushing the walls and floor, emptying skimmer and pump baskets, backwashing the filter, checking current chemical levels of the water, adding chemicals to bring water to safe levels, emptying automatic vacuum systems, and examining pool equipment for potential issues or concerns.
    +
    Why do I need to make sure my pool water is properly balanced?
    When your pool water is balanced, your sanitizer will be more effective, and your water will be sparkling. Your family and friends will feel more comfortable, and the pool’s surface and equipment will last longer. Improve the effectiveness of your pool system and the life of your pool with balancing products.
    +
    I am having a pool party. Can you service it tomorrow?
    If you have an important event coming up and you plan to use your pool for this function you should be testing and preparing the pool weeks in advance. Balancing a pool requires time for the chemicals to circulate through your pool’s system. It is best to begin this process prior to guests swimming.
    +
    When should I open/close the pool?
    Opening and closing your pool depends on many variables like usage and heaters. Typically, in this area pools are opened in May and closed in September.  However, environmental factors play a large role in your decision. Have flowering bushes around the pool? Best to open when they have finished blooming. Large trees that drop leaves in the fall? You may consider closing before this happens.
    +
    I bought a home with a pool - HELP!
    Many pool owners never anticipated having a pool. If you find yourself with a pool and want to learn more about it (or have someone else take care of it!) give us a call! We would be happy to come out and give a tutorial on how your system works and even basic pool chemistry.
    +
    How long does it take to clear a green pool?
    If your pool is green, most likely your chemicals are unbalanced which allowed algae to take over. Bringing your chemicals back to normal levels is the first step in the process. Once chemicals are balanced, we provide you with an expected time frame for clear and clean water.
    +
    If I just add "shock" is that good enough?
    Shock is a fancy name for chlorine. Shocking the pool means raising your chlorine residual high enough to kill any algae and bring your free chlorine levels into normal range. Chlorine and “shock” do not work unless your other chemical levels are in the normal range. Therefore, if you are unsure of your alkalinity and pH levels, do not add shock.
    +
    Why should I brush my pool?
    Brushing should be part of routine maintenance. Brushing the walls and floor of your pool will prevent algae buildup because it prevents those algae spores from attaching to the surface and beginning to grow in the first place. It is always good to remember with algae that it is better to prevent it than to treat it.
