Main Pool Drain and Cleaning

Sometimes a full drain and acid wash of pool is required to remove stubborn stains from an improperly winterized pool. In a residential environment, a drain and clean with an acid washing of the pool will rarely, if ever, be required. Careful and complete winterization will allow the pool to be filled and started year after year. In the event of major repair work requiring draining of the pool,improper chemical treatment for the winter, or the lack of a high quality cover, staining may occur that can only be removed through a thorough drain and clean.

Spa drain and clean

Full drain and acid wash of spa to remove stubborn stains.

Water bag cover removal, water and debris removal

We will remove the cover, empty the water bags, and clear the cover of any debris before folding and storing it on the customers property.

Heater inspection and initial ignition

(Required for all pools with gas-fired heaters to ensure safe and efficient operation).

If a return trip is required to actually start heater, a second trip charge of $50.00 will apply. It is recommended that you have all natural gas turned on and, where applicable, propane tanks filled to avoid second trip charges.

Pools with two heaters will incur a second charge of $35.

Real Estate Inspection

When buying or selling a home it is important to know the condition of the swimming pool. As a seller, an inspection showing that your pool is in sound mechanical condition can be a valuable addition to your marketing. As a buyer, having a professional inspection can give you the information required to help make an informed decision. Our inspections are unbiased verbal appraisals of the each major part of the swiming pool, and will communicate estimated age of item, remaining lifespan, and estimated cost to replace.

Winter Inspection

Winter can be a very damaging season for a swimming pool. Water that seeps into the wrong place and then freezes can bend steel and pulverize concrete. The weight of snow, ice and debris can tear or shift a pool cover. A solid preventive maintenance plan includes winter inspections to catch damaging situations before they take their toll.
