After-all, an in-ground pool is a large investment, so why not treat it with personalized care!?

In our experience in the Greater Houston & Montgomery County climates and the average amount of swimming a swimming pool in Texas will need service each week. Things such as water evaporation, splashing water out of the pool, and leaks can cause dilution of pool chemicals. Allowing a pool to go un-serviced for longer than a week may result in the formation of green algae.
Clean the pool from the top down. Working with the pool tiles and the net first.
Brush the upper tiles first, and the pool bottom after vacuuming.
Move the net in a zig-zag motion overlapping strokes.
When switching to spa, move quickly for less air pockets.
Close other suction valves for stronger vacuum.
