Pool School

Educating one customer at a time!

Even if you have weekly pool service, we believe every homeowner should understand the basics of maintaining their pool. We offer a 1-2 hour customized training session at your home, on your pool deck, and working with your equipment. If you don’t already have one, we can also provide a test kit for use in ensuring your pool chemistry is kept at the correct levels.

Our Pool School includes:

  • Chemistry - testing and adjusting
  • Cleaning - netting leaves, brushing, vacuuming, emptying skimmer baskets
  • Equipment
  • Filter operations - Backwashing (DE/Sand filters), cleaning/degreasing (cartridge filters), breaking down DE filters (discussion or demonstration)
    Pump operations - emptying pump basket
    Heater operation
    Pool Automation - operation, programming
  • Basic equipment troubleshooting including high/low filter pressure
  • Introduction to our video series and calculators on our website
