Although there are many advantages to choosing ABC to help with your pool, what we hear most from our customers is that they appreciate that ABC is a one-stop shop for all their pool needs. From minor fixes and cleaning filters to remodeling your pool and resurfacing, ABC has you covered.

No pool owner wants to dive into dirty water—not to mention the impact an accumulation of dirt and other debris can have on your pool’s chemical balance and equipment. Taking a break from brushing, skimming and vacuuming your pool isn’t really an option, either. When you decide to call ABC’s meticulous and experienced pool cleaners, we’ll not only take this routine task off your to-do list but we’ll also check and adjust your pool chemicals, as needed. That way, you won’t have to spend time worrying about your pH, cyanuric acid, chlorine, alkalinity and calcium hardness levels. Our dedicated staff will often be the first line of defense, spotting and fixing small problems before they turn into a bigger headache. If we can’t tackle stubborn stains any other way, we can acid wash your pool and drain it so that your pool looks great again.
A minor repair can quickly become tedious if you aren’t familiar with the inner workings of all your pool’s components. Even if you do have the know-how, many pool owners simply don’t have the time to troubleshoot and fix most issues that come up. Losing an entire weekend to a repair would leave anyone frustrated, especially if an experienced technician can quickly take care of the problem and get things done right the first time. Whether it’s a malfunctioning pump, a broken filter or even if you have no clue what’s going on, an ABC specialist can get everything working again, no matter what brand or type of equipment you have. Since we bring some parts with us to every service call, we can even replace components in the same visit.
A pool is a big investment, and the way it looks and functions plays a big role in how much you get out of it. You may have moved into a home with an existing pool that doesn’t match your family’s tastes, or your pool may have become outdated over time. Perhaps you just want to add in new features, such as colored lights or calming waterfalls. Whatever your motivation for remodeling your pool, you want to carefully select a company that has the experience to bring your vision into reality. ABC’s experts can do just that, while advising you on practical concerns, including how to get the biggest return on your investment.
The heat and elements in Kingwood can destroy the surface of your pool over time. Your plaster will eventually degrade and become rough to the touch. In addition, your plaster can develop stains which can’t be removed using traditional cleaning methods. This is when you might consider pool replastering, a transformative procedure that enhances the texture and color of your pool’s surface. ABC’s pros can give you honest advice on whether replastering makes sense for your pool. We’ll also help you review your options. If you do decide to replaster your pool, our specialists have all the tools and training to take on this project so you can maximize your enjoyment of your backyard oasis.
A homeowner’s to-do list is a mile long, and it’s easy for pool issues to sink—quite literally—to the bottom of your list. With ABC’s help, you can focus on relaxing poolside rather than the time and hassle that comes with this work that also eats into your precious free time.
Ask any of our customers why they have stuck with us over the last few decades, and they’ll say it’s because we treat their pool as we would our own. Second, the thorough and comprehensive background checks and drug testing we perform on all of our employees make our customers feel safe having ABC on their property. Last, but certainly not least, we have a well-established reputation for providing the best pool services in the area. This has all helped ABC build and maintain a well-established reputation for delivering the best pool service in the area.
How often will you clean my pool?
After you reach out and share with us what you are looking for in a pool cleaning service, we’ll recommend a schedule that can best fit your needs. Some pools may require more cleaning than others, depending on where you live, the size of your pool and the volume of debris that makes its way into your water on a regular basis.
How regularly do I need to check the chemicals in my pool?
Keeping your pool’s chemicals balanced is the most basic and critical pool maintenance task. You’ll want to test your water at least once a week. After heavy rainfall or some other type of inclement weather, you’ll also want to perform a check and make adjustments, as necessary.
How long should I wait to swim after a chemical treatment?
If one of our specialists recommends “shocking” your pool as a way to treat green or cloudy water, we’ll make sure to advise you on what to expect and when you can get back to swimming.
What we usually say to our customers is that manufacturers recommend re-entering the pool when chlorine levels are back to normal. For most pools, that’s an hour or so. Feel free to ask your specialist questions you may have about the work we have done or how you can keep your pool running smoothly.
How quickly can you get me on the schedule?
We realize that pool owners don’t want to spend more time than they have to not be enjoying their investment, so we try to gather as much information as possible from you over the phone to better understand your needs. We’ll do our best to schedule a service call in just a few days, at a time that’s convenient for you, and work with you on a regular schedule for ongoing cleaning and maintenance. Our top goal is to get back to swimming as soon as possible.
What are all the kinds of pool repairs ABC can handle?
ABC has been in the pool business for decades, meaning we’ve seen (and taken care of) just about any kind of pool problem in both fresh and salt water pools. Among those service calls are to fix:
- Leaking skimmers, filters or pumps
- Salt cell or pump blockages
- Non-working filters
- Clogged pool cleaners
- Pool heater problems
- Deteriorated pump fittings
- Excessive air in pump baskets
- Pool lights that aren’t working correctly
- Leaking or another type of water loss
- Broken pumps or filters
- Damaged ladders, diving boards or other equipment
- Cracks in plaster or tile or widespread staining
My pool looks great, but the area around it could use some love. Can ABC do anything?
Your pool is often the focal point of your yard, so any eyesores around it quickly become more visible, especially if you have guests and visitors over, as many pool owners do routinely. That’s another reason our pool customers are grateful they chose ABC since we offer many different home services to make our customers’ lives easier.
Just a few examples of what we can do include:
- switching out the grass around your pool area to artificial turf or another species that can handle the high foot traffic and moisture in these spots
- updating your pool deck with ornamental plants or attractive beds
- controlling your mosquitoes so you aren’t constantly swatting away these bloodsucking pests while you are trying to relax
- creating pathways, walkways and other hardscaping features to help your swimmers easily move to and from your home
What can you tell me about your pool technicians' qualifications?
We couldn’t get the results we do without having highly-trained professionals serving Kingwood pool owners. In addition to keeping up to date with the latest industry standards and new technologies, ABC puts employees through rigorous in-house training. Experience, superior customer service and decades spent here growing in the community dealing with all types of pool issues make us the pool service experts.
How do you address pool owners' concerns about the impact of chemicals on kids and furry family members?
The well-being of your family will always remain a top concern for our company. We are happy to address any concerns you may have about the chemicals we are using in your pool. ABC follows standards recommended by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, the leading industry association. We also are well-versed on manufacturer guidelines on how to maintain and repair your pool and help you avoid any pool-related hazards.
Will I be charged extra for pool chemicals?
We don’t like hidden fees, so we can only assume our customers don’t, either. For that reason, we strive to be completely transparent with any fees so that you don’t feel like you are paying for anything unexpected.
Our regular pool service cost covers any pool chemicals we need to add to your pool to maintain the manufacturer-recommended levels. We charge a per visit fee for these services.
In the rare event that a technician discovers a bigger problem with your pool chemicals, we will be in touch about a proposed solution, which of course we’ll get approved before we do any work. In these situations, we may need to schedule an appointment that’s separate from your normal cleaning time to give your pool the attention it requires.
What parts are you able to replace in my pool?
We will only recommend replacing a part if it’s absolutely necessary. To give you a better idea of what types of work we usually perform, we can switch out:
- Pool lighting
- Circulation and suction lines
- Time clocks
- PVC pipe (plus any needed materials to fix leaks)
When performing a repair, does ABC install used parts?
ABC’s technicians have many of the most commonly-needed parts on hand, so in many cases, you don’t have to worry about waiting for a part to be shipped to you. If we can make a repair using existing parts, we certainly will. If we see a component is too worn to work properly, we’ll check with you to approve getting the replacement installed. When we do so, we’ll use new parts only, and we’ll make sure the new part is working correctly before the service call is over.
