A few common problems and thoughts on opening your pool

Happy Spring from Saratoga Pool & Tub Co.-

Summer is coming and it’s going to be pool time soon! Of course we are all excited for the hot weather and after this very cold start to 2015 there may be items in and around your pool that need attention. One thing that commonly breaks on in-grounds are the jet-return collars which have 4 screws holding them. If you see that these are cracked in the pool get them replaced. You can lose water from this area of the pool!; make sure the jet collars are intact and like-new. The cold and ice can also take its toll on o-rings, equipment, plumbing and even heaters located near the pump. If you open your own pool make sure to inspect this area thoroughly; if we open it we’ll do it for you and replace anything that needs it. Above-ground pools got it pretty bad to this year too; lots of structural damage out there.  If you’re in the market for a new pool stop in and see us.  We sell quality pools and above grounds that stand up to ice like we had this year.

Whether you have an in-ground or above ground we have all the parts and chemicals you need, in stock, at our store in Saratoga on Weibel Ave behind the golf driving range at or below Walmart prices! Stop in, say hi and take advantage of the plethora of knowledge, experience and local expertise at your disposal..come and see what Saratoga Pool & Tub Co. is all about!

Now go out and get that pool ready for swimming!!

I grew up around the pool. I love pools and swimming. I truly believe that swimming is one of the most important skills a child can learn. That is where it all started for me was in the pool. I have been maintaining pools since I was a young kid. I was a lifeguard for 8 years and I also instructed swimming at this time as well. In a perfect world I would be instructing swim lessons all day :) I have been working in the pool service industry for a long time and I take a lot of pride in being able to provide help and insight for pool owners in need. I also have a wealth of knowledge and experience with pool water chemistry. I enjoy business.
