TIPS TO SPEND LESS ON SWIMMING POOL REPAIR & MAINTENANCE

HIRE A REPUTABLE COMPANY – By hiring a reputable swimming pool repair and maintenance company, you are taking a step forward to maintain your pool, which is otherwise a difficult task if done on an individual basis. Allowing chlorine levels to dip too drastically will allow algae to begin to grow. Levels that are too high can result in chemical burns and itching eyes. Your pool filter should be cleaned and replaced at regular intervals to help it continue functioning at its best. The team of experts of Esposito Pools is knowledgeable in all aspects of swimming pool repair and maintenance needs. Allow us to reduce some of these stress-inducing things and call our professionals to keep your pool repaired and maintained.

CLEAN & MONITOR YOUR POOL FILTER – Pool pumps use a significant amount of electricity. You can enjoy clean water and smaller electric bills by limiting the amount of time that your pool pump runs. In most cases, four hours per day is enough to maintain optimal water quality. It will help you save money by running your pump for limited time period. On a regular basis keep monitoring all your pool equipment to get small repairs done on time, so that you can avoid costly repairs later on.

POOL COVER – KEEP THE MAINTENANCE COST LOW – A pool cover is also an excellent way to keep the pool maintenance costs low. Having a pool cover that fits properly and used appropriately can help reduce the number of those pesky “love bugs” from getting in. Once you start seeing them flying around ensure that your pool is properly covered, and if you happen to neglect, they will be everywhere. It will also keep leaves, grass and even tiny little objects, which create the most hindrances in the proper functioning, away from your pool.

Regular pool maintenance is very much vital for the proper functioning of your pool. Being the most trusted pool repair company in Cypress, Esposito Pools can help you keep your pool well-maintained. We will handle all your repair needs, from top to bottom with utmost care and perfection.

Why buying pool parts on the Internet could cost you Posted by Esposito Pools | Comments: (0) | News, Pool Repair

More warnings and policies are now coming directly from manufactures about internet sold pool products:

I was talking to some reps tonight and one told me they most all have similar statements on their manufacture websites warning homeowners about warranties and internet sales issues, something internet purchasers will not see nor will be told be the internet seller.  They have statements that internet purchases can affect your warranty and also give additional warnings. 

And finding a reputable company to install an internet part, as they suggest, is not easy.

Why?  Because most all of us have been burned by a damaged part the customer purchased from the internet.  And when manufactures won't warranty it, the seller blames the shipping company or the installer. 

When the shipping company says the package was delivered without any reported damage, the homeowner blames the trained installer and that ruins a good customer relationship. 

Not to mention, who's paying the extra labor for installing a motor that did not work, then uninstalling it, then return to reinstall another one at a later date after the homeowner pays shipping and more costs to get a replacement.  Even heavy motors have delicate windings and internal parts that are not meant to be tossed around before a qualified installation.

No thanks! No reputable company can make money this way and you'll find it hard to find a good company to do it.

My company has been blamed by some 'internet sellers' for being the reason a major INTERNAL part broke in a cleaner, rendering the month old cleaner useless and not covered under manufactures warranty.  The seller probably shipped a good product or it sat in a hot warehouse for too long or it was tossed around too hard in shipping.

As the internet becomes a larger place to find low priced items, buyers must beware of the additional risks involved in buying from an internet seller.

Mainly, warranty claims on internet sales are much higher and mainly due to the fact that manufactures do not package their goods for individual shipping.
Manufactures package their goods to be shipped in bulk, on tightly wrapped pallets for damage free shipping, to authorized distributors.  Then it can be hand delivered to your property from a local distributor by your authorized, trained and licensed installer.   This process, no doubt is more expensive, but it greatly insures you have a working product for years of it's intended life.

Compared to an internet seller sending an individual item through a postal service that is rushing to get your purchase delivered on time, (along with thousands of other fragile packages that day).  Do you want your expensive computer board, pool cleaner or heater being handled like a suitcase being unloaded from an airplane. 

No one thinks twice about a box that has no major damage, but you should think twice if your unsecured computer board or your expensive pool cleaner with small delicate parts inside can handle the tossing around and still operate error free for years to come.

Many parts are also not plug and play and should only be installed by a trained, authorized professional.  This includes everything from automatic pool cleaners to motors and heaters.   All pool professionals have taken classes to be authorized do these installations. 

Even hooking up a new cleaner in a pool requires training and involves the risk of improperly cutting the hose assembly which can be a $150. cost. 

Why would any company install an internet purchased part with risks and problems like these. 

If the internet were a good place to get pool parts, all pool companies would stop paying higher local distributor pricing.  But you can learn from the many reputable companies doing business every day. 

We don't buy from the internet because of these and other problems associated with electronic or delicate products and the fact that the manufactures recognize the higher warranty claims associated with internet sales.

All this being said, buying none electrical or non mechanical items can save you money and much lower risk of damage.  Items like skimmer baskets, pool cleaner bags, skim nets, pool toys and similar may be able to save you a few dollars getting them shipped to your door.

However, even a simple automatic pool cleaner must be set up and installed specifically to manufacture details (specifically for your own pool) or it will not operate properly and it will shorten it's life.

When we sell a pool cleaner (or any product), we include trained and insured installations and additionally will save you $150-$250 or more with our installation set up.

Our installations on pool cleaners for example will extend the life of your cleaner and your future part replacement costs.  Not to mention, we will make sure you get the best model cleaner for your pool and not the most expensive one or the one sold to look like the best deal.

And the same care goes into other products we sell.  Our heaters are the best in the industry and after all hookups are completed we return again to tune up your heater to manufacture design specs. 

We do this to make sure you have an optimal running heater for many years to come.  Not just a few years after we've been paid to sell it to you.

Here is one example: RAYPAK INTERNET WARNINGS

Troubleshooting Tips To Help You Avoid Pool Pump Failure

Owning a pool can be an exhilarating and luxurious experience. Swimming pool is a paradise where you can relax and unwind, have fun, or create memories with your family that will last a lifetime. However, sometimes pool problems such as pool pump failure can create stressful moments. Esposito Pools, specializing in pool service in Cypress, is capable of handling all of your pump related needs.

Below are mentioned the troubleshooting tips that will help you stop a small problem before it becomes a gigantic mess.

Troubleshooting Tips To Help You Avoid Pool Pump Failure

INSPECT YOUR POOL ON REGULAR BASIS – Make it a habit to visually inspect your pump and filter the system on a regular basis. Look for the signs of corrosion on bolts, pump housings, and between threaded connections. Also, keep a check on any type of water stains that might have developed in the time span. O-rings, gaskets or cracks in the unit need professional repairs, so call your pool repair company before complete pump failure sets in.

CHECK THE WATER FLOW – You have to inculcate the habit to determine if the flow from your water return is weak or strong. This can be easily done by simply feeling the flow with your hand. If the flow is weak, 9 times out of 10 it is a dirty filter. However, there can be other reasons, such as an obstruction in the inlet or outlet lines or your pump system could be sucking air. If you have cleaned your filter and skimmer but still need help to get the optimum flow from your pump, give our knowledgeable technicians a call.

DETERMINE ITS CYCLING – While the pump is still operational, keep a check whether it is cycling between on and off at irregular intervals. Check out if the motor is overheating or shutting itself down. This type of problem occurs due to faulty electrical cords. If this is the case, an electrician should be contacted to fix the problem. However, if the electrical wires are not the actual cause, then probably it can be the malfunctioning of the internal part. Contact your reliable company specializing in pool services in Cypress to prolong the life of your pump.

Pool pump failure can lead you in a troublesome situation where you will be left with no solution, but hopefully the aforesaid tips can be of some help. Therefore, choose a company that can provide you with satisfactory pool services in Cypress. Give Esposito Pools a chance to help you with your swimming pool repair or maintenance needs, so that you can enjoy your pool every day.

Choosing the Right Type of Pool Cleaner: Suction Side, Pressure Side or Robotic

Pool cleaning is always considered the great activity as it enables the pool owners to cut back on a large portion of pool maintenance. People often wonder as to which type of cleaner is best suitable for their swimming pool? Esposito Pools, being a leading provider of impeccable range of pool cleaning services in Cypress and surrounding areas, knows what are the prons and cons of different pool cleaners. Before you purchase pool cleaners, check out the prons and cons of these three types of cleaners - suction side, the pressure side, and robotic cleaners.

Choosing the Right Type of Pool Cleaner: Suction Side, Pressure Side or Robotic

SUCTION SIDE POOL CLEANERS – Suction-side pool cleaners work along with the dedicated suction line in your pool. They get attached to the suction line and utilize the suction to propel the cleaner throughout the pool while scrubbing the pool surface, eliminating dirt and debris from your pool.

Pros:

The moving parts are fewer

The cost incurred in less

Easy to maintain

Cons:

Increases the pressure on filter

Requires pool pump to run

PRESSURE SIDE POOL CLEANERS – Pressure-side pool cleaners make use of existing pressure side line so that the cleaner propel throughout your pool. The water returned back into your pool fuels the cleaner, but it can require an additional booster pump to run. Unlike suction side cleaners, pressure side pool cleaners do not use your pool’s filtration system. Instead to accumulate dirt and debris they make use of filtration bag, thus relieving pressure and avoiding wear and tear of the filtration system.

Pros:

Relieves pressure on filter

The cost incurred in less

Easy to maintain

Cons:

Can sometimes require extra booster pump

Requires pool pump to run

ROBOTIC POOL CLEANERS – Likewise other pool cleaners, robotic cleaners do not use pool cleaning equipment and nor do they run off the power from your house. The best thing is they free up pressure on your pool equipment and reduce overall power costs and consumption while providing superior cleaning power. They use the simple technology of “plug and play” and pick up large and small debris in the built-in filtration system. Many times they also scrub the pool floor and steps clean thus eliminating the need to clean your pool walls with a brush. The reason why the robotic cleaners are considered ideal for most pools is that they reduce the maintenance cost and wear and tear of the pool equipment.

Pros:

It offers superior cleaning

Energy efficient

Eliminates wear and tear of pool equipment

Cons:

The upfront cost involved is higher

With it arises the need to clean the filter

Professional pool technicians send by Esposito Pools provides reliable pool cleaning in Cypress at an affordable price along with pool equipment inspection & maintenance as well as monitoring of pool water level. Along with outstanding pool service, we give our clients the direct estimate of their pool cleaning and maintenance requirements.
