Our experienced pool professionals help homeowners across the Metroplex with all their pool and spa needs, including routine maintenance and repair.
Specifically, we offer:
Cleaning a pool doesn’t seem like that big of a deal—that is, until you realize what’s really involved. To maintain that crystal-clear water you want, you need to brush, skim and vacuum your pool regularly. Most experts recommend spending 15 minutes every single day engaging in pool cleaning tasks. Think of all the other things you could be doing with that time.
Another big part of maintaining your pool is keeping the chemicals in balance. ABC’s pool technicians will make sure you have the right ratio of chemicals to keep your pool balanced and make adjustments as necessary.
Until you own a pool, they mostly seem like they run themselves. After all, it’s just a big bowl of water, right? What is there to go wrong?
Once you have a pool, you quickly learn that pumps can get clogged. Skimmers may start to leak. Heaters might break. The list goes on and on.
Of course, these types of problems are pretty much guaranteed to occur when you have absolutely no time to learn how to fix them yourself.
So don’t. Our licensed pool specialists can get your pool or hot tub back up and running again in no time.
Beyond actual breakdowns that require immediate repair, pools also need routine maintenance if you want to catch possible problems before they blow up into expensive headaches. That’s why we offer monthly or seasonal inspections.
ABC’s pool specialists will come by and check out everything that keeps your pool or hot tub running smoothly: drains, filters, ladders, skimmers and any other important components. These inspections also double as pool cleanings, meaning you’ll return home to a brushed, skimmed, vacuumed and chemically-balanced pool.
We know that a number of homeowners in the Dallas/Fort Worth area either have or are considering a salt-water pool. Because of this, our technicians are trained in best practices for cleaning, repairing and maintaining saltwater pools, as well as the process to convert your current pool to salt water.
Even if you’re just interested in learning more about salt-water pools, our specialists can discuss both the benefits and what it takes to convert. Drop us a line and we’ll be happy to set up a consultation.
After that initial visit, we can return for cleanings or repairs when you are not at home.
For our first visit, we do need you to be there, so you can talk to us about your pool and its parts, as well as giving us instructions on what we need to do to gain access to the pool area.
The answer to this question depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The time of year
- The type of pool
- How often the pool is used
Based on those factors, we will work with you to come up with a schedule that works for your needs.
First things first: you’re not alone! We can’t tell you the number of times we’ve received this question from Dallas/Fort Worth pool owners. It may seem gross, but pool water turning green is actually one of the most common issues around.
There’s not one simple answer for why this happens, because it can be due to several different things:
- chemical imbalance
- filter build-up
- pump problems
Depending on what is causing the issue, our pool technicians typically resolve the problem by adding algaecide or sanitizers or performing a shock treatment.
We advise checking pH and other chemical levels at least twice weekly for residential pools.
Why so often? Because maintaining the proper chemical balance is the main way that you keep your pool safe for the people swimming in it.
In order for you to safely swim in your pool again, the chemicals need to be circulated through the water. This happens when all the water in the pool has passed through the filter once, something that typically takes 8 to 12 hours in residential pools.
Because of this, chemical adjustments tend to be made at night, so the water will be safe to swim in on the following day.
It comes down to trust.
People tell us they choose ABC because they trust that our technicians know what they’re doing. Where does this trust come from?
First, ABC customers here in Dallas/Fort Worth can also rest easy knowing that all our employees undergo both background checks and drug tests. That may seem like a small thing, but it matters a lot when you’re inviting people onto your personal property.
Beyond this, ABC is a certified pool and spa operator, which means our employees get special training in safety considerations and industry best practices. Additionally, our technicians are extensively trained in-house on what the ideal chemical components of pool water should be, as well as the mechanics involved in a pool’s operation.
Basically, ABC specialists understand and love pools. Our professionals will treat your pool like it’s their own.
