Salt Water Pool Service

Salt Water Systems

It’s affordable and easy to convert to a salt water system using your existing equipment.

Having your own swimming pool is awesome, especially with our blistering Northern California summers. When the heat becomes unbearable, all you need to do is put on your swimsuit and take a dip for as long as you like. With a swimming pool, you and your family can escape from the uncomfortable heat and have fun together at the same time. Of course, having your own pool means a lot of responsibilities, foremost among them is keeping the water sanitary at all times. No one wants to swim in a pool filled with bacteria and other pathogens. 

Benefits of Salt Water Pool Service:

One might argue that a salt water pool is still a chlorinated pool, and he or she would be right. Salt water pools, however, have advantages over regular chlorinated pools. For example, a salt water pool has none of that irritating chlorine smell. The water is also clear and smooth, as well as gentle on the skin and eyes. There is also no more need to store, handle, or smell the chlorine because the chlorine generator produces it for you. Most importantly for many people, the annual cost of salt water pool maintenance is lower.

  • No harsh chemicals needed
  • No need to store expensive and hazardous chlorine
  • Unpleasant taste and odors are greatly reduced
  • Sparkling clear pool water every day
  • Fully automatic chlorination
  • No hard water feeling

If you ever decide to go for a salt water pool, that’s where we come in. A family-owned swimming pool cleaning and maintenance company, Clear Choice Pool and Spa Service provides first-rate swimming pool services to residents of the foothills and the Sacramento valley. 

Green to Clean

Green Pool? No Problem – “Green To Clean”

We specialize in reviving even the greenest pool back to clean and clear no matter the severity of the algae. An algae filled green pool is unhealthy, unsafe and unsightly. Getting a green or algae pool back to clean/clear and healthy can take a lot of work. 

When a pool turns green with algae there are many causes.  When we come out to clean a green pool, we also access the equipment. We attempt to help you figure out the root cause of the poor water chemistry that turned the pool green in the first place. Whether it is poor filtration, bad equipment, old water, etc. Turning a green pool into a clean pool requires Clear Choice Pool and Spa’s knowledge. Our experienced pool service and pool cleaning company can turn your pool around.

First in our process we test the overall water chemistry for dissolved solids, hardness and Cyanuric Acid, this determines the route we take with the below options:

Cleaning Option 1: Chemical treating is recommended If the water chemistry is good.  We would add the required amounts of shock, algaecide and phosphate removers.

Cleaning Option 2: Deep cleaning is recommended if the basic water chemistry is poor. Draining the water from the pool and starting over with fresh water.  Once finished, the pool is filled and the starter chemicals are added.  Included with the service: We would clean the filter if it is a Cartridge or DE style filter tank. Imagine what the pool filter looks like if the pool water is green! If the pool uses sand filtration, we inspect and stir up the sand before back washing to flush debris from the sand filter. We usually also recommend a chlorine wash upon draining.   A Chlorine wash consists of our technician getting into the pool and spraying all surfaces with liquid chlorine to kill the algae.

Pool Start Ups

New Pool Plaster? Consider a Start-Up Program!

Whether you’ve recently poured a new pool or just re-finished an existing pool and you are almost done with your fresh plaster, it’s time to start thinking about the “Start-Up Phase” of your pool.

From different chemical balances to strict brushing regimens, every type of plaster requires its own specific care and maintenance program which can last from one to three weeks.

If a pool start-up is in your near future, please review the information regarding our procedures and consider Clear Choice Pool and Spa Service to complete this phase of your project. You only have one opportunity to get your pool plaster perfect. You can TRUST US in your backyard.

  • Prepping Equipment to Run Again or for First-Time Use: Equipment prep can include programming, labeling, scheduling, pulling plugs and priming lines, cleaning filters, installing cleaners repair, and more. Setting and labelling equipment can cut down future identification time.
  • Proper Chemical Balancing: The chemistry of your new pool water needs to be balanced according to the particular type of plaster that is present. It is of utmost importance in curing your new plaster properly. For many plaster types, this includes a different chemical balance than you would normally operate your pool with, as well as an accurate timeline of varying chemical profiles as the plaster cures over the first few weeks. Along with brushing, proper chemistry is the most important aspect of pool start-up. Chemistry balance ensures that your plaster cures properly and evenly. An improper start-up can lead to permanent color mottling and unevenness. It can even result in rough plaster which isn’t pleasant to walk on. It can also cause algae problems in the future.
  • Brushing – All new plasters require daily brushing of the entire plaster surface. This is a strenuous and time-consuming task which often calls for an experienced hand. They help to eliminate the possibility of rough spots or staining on the plaster, especially in corners and on steps. Improper technique or a lack of force can lead to streaking or rough spots.
  • Knowing What to Do and When to Do it – Some types of plaster are highly resilient to environmental change. You can install a cleaner or vacuum in the first week, swim after five days, and use the heater after a week. Other plasters require 3-4 weeks before you can swim, install a cleaner or a vacuum used on the plaster, or use the heater.

Why Join a Pool Start-Up Program?

As mentioned above, your pool plaster only has one opportunity to settle into its new location and take to its new water conditions. Often, pool builders will complete startups as part of the cost of the build. If this is not the case, consider a pool maintenance professional to complete your startup phase and protect your investment. Clear Choice Pool and Spa Service has trained technicians experienced with all types of plaster finishes and start-up procedures. Clear Choice Pool and Spa Service is ready to take care of your pool, so you don’t have to, from start-up to sundown!
