I was just looking over our online “eBook” library and I have to say —

Pool Construction - Pool Safety - Fort Myers - Naples Florida

WOW!  We have got quite the library of helpful information – from pool service & pool safety tips to pool renovation ideas to creating the ‘ultimate outdoor environment’ it’s in there!

Over the years, I’ve met with thousands of families, parents, and couples who have asked such wonderful questions.

I’ve helped dozens in times of need turn what was a not-so-good situation (a dark green, moldy, mildew infested pool, for example) into a dream outdoor experience…

But one of the most powerful things we started doing a few years ago (A BIG thank you to my friends and Internet Marketers at ISG!) was creating helpful eBooks that have truly empowered so many people.

With everything we create, we try to:

  • thoroughly answer the questions we receive,
  • provide thoughtful direction – hints and tips on creating and maintaining the best environment, and
  • assure you’re learning from all of the lessons we’ve learned over the years!

If you’ve met me, or my team, you know we want nothing more than the safest, happiest, and most fun outdoor environment for you, your family and friends.  That’s our mission! 😉

Please let me know how you think we’re doing, OR if you have any questions or ideas on what we can help you with, please send them to us too, either by commenting below, or Contacting Us on our website!

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to help you, I truly appreciate it.


Have you checked the chemicals in your pool lately?

Pool Service - Pool Chemicals

Did you know that if the chemicals that balance your pool are out of out of balance – it can harm your pool, its equipment, and your family?

Because the water in your pool is never ‘technically’ replaced, owning a pool means you have a continual battle to keep it in balance.

A balanced pool has proper levels of pH, Total Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness.

It’s really important to understand that pH is the measure of how acidic or alkaline the water is.  (Just so you know, pH is a logarithmic scale that starts at 0 and ends at 14 – with 7 being neutral.)

Like the human eye (which typically has a pH of 7.35 – which is slightly alkaline), you want your pool water to have a similar rating.

Easy to remember, right? 😉

One of the biggest questions we get this time of year (especially when a storm is tracking directly toward Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples – our service areas!) is:

“What do I need to do to assure my pool, and pool area, are safe if the storm hits?”

Solar Pool Heater

This is the fifth of 7 Ways to Save on Your New Pool which is available for free from our library of eBooks.

Soak up the sun and enjoy the warm savings!

If you’re like most, you probably like your pool temperature to be around 80 degrees. If you have been following my blog, Ultimate Swimming Pool & Spa, I talked about the joy of swimming year round by installing an electric pool heater. This is another option to enjoy your newly constructed pool any time of the year.

The initial installation of a solar water heater will be slightly more expensive than traditional pool heater options, however the cost is soon justified as you enjoy the benefits of low electric bills and minimal maintenance.

The simplest and least expensive solar water heater is the solar pool heater. Here’s how it works:
