For pool owners, the thought of diving into dirty water is enough to make them want to take a break from brushing their pools. The accumulation and build-up on dirt algae can have an impact not only for your balance but also on systems in place like filters that keep everything running smoothly. I
Instead of stressing over all that hard and dirty work, let ABC’s meticulous and experienced pool cleaners take this routine task off your to-do list. While we’re at it, they’ll also check chemical levels as needed, so you don’t have to worry. That way, you won’t have to spend time stressing about your pH, cyanuric acid, chlorine, alkalinity and calcium hardness levels.
The ABC staff is often the first line of defense against bigger problems, since they can spot small problems before they turn into a big headache.
A minor pool repair can get complicated very quickly, especially if you aren’t familiar with the inner workings of all the components. Even if you do have a strong understanding of the ins and outs of pool maintenance, many 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.
It makes no difference if it’s a malfunctioning pump, a broken filter or even if you have no idea what’s going on, an ABC specialist can get everything working again, regardless of the brand or type of equipment you have. Since we bring some parts with us to every service call, in many cases we can replace components in the same visit.
As a pool owner, you’re probably well aware that a pool itself is a huge investment and the way it looks or functions plays a big role in how much you get out of it. Maybe you moved into a home with an existing pool that doesn’t quite match your family’s tastes, or your pool may have become outdated over time. Or maybe you just really want to add in some innovative features to improve the overall swimming experience. Whatever your motivation for remodeling your pool may be, it’s important 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 high levels of exposure to heat, sunlight and other elements found in The Woodlands can definitely take a toll on the surface of your pool. Over time, the plaster may degrade and become rough to touch. In addition, your plaster can even become stained in such a way that traditional cleaning methods just won’t do enough to wipe away the built-up sediment.
The good news is that your pool surface can be transformed in both texture and color when you have it replastered. ABC’s pros can give you honest advice on whether replastering makes sense for your pool and 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 dealing with the time and hassle that comes with maintaining the appearance of your pool.
We frequently hear from our customers that our comprehensive background checks and drug testing on our employees make them feel safe having ABC on their property. ABC has a well-established reputation for providing the best pest control services in the area. Finally, we strive to treat your pool with the same care and attention that we would our own.

What do ABC's pool schedules look like?
Since every pool is different, we take pride in creating the perfect schedule for your needs. Some pools take a little more care than others. ABC’s pros will take into consideration the size of your pool and the season, which can dictate the volume of materials that makes its way into your water.
How regularly do I need to check the chemicals in my pool?
A pool’s chemicals need to be balanced and in good condition. You’ll also want to test the water weekly. After heavy rain or inclement weather, you should also perform a check and make adjustments to keep your pool water clear and safe to swim in.
How long should I wait to swim after a chemical treatment?
If we recommend “shocking” your pool, we’ll make sure to advise you on what to expect and when you can get back to swimming.
We typically tell our customers that manufacturers recommend re-entering the pool when chlorine levels return to normal. For most pools, that just takes an hour or so. We’re happy to perform this service for you. We are also happy to answer any questions our customers have about the work we have done or how to keep your pool running smoothly.
When can you get started?
When you call us, our team will take all your information quickly over the phone. They’ll consider any necessary details like your pool size or materials before starting work on yours. Then, our team will do our best to schedule a service call in just a few days. We’ll work with you to develop a regular schedule for cleaning and maintenance.

ABC offers other home services to make our customers’ lives easier.
Just a few examples of what we can do include:

How do you address pool owners' concerns about the impact of chemicals on kids and furry family members?
We care deeply about the well-being of your family. That’s why we are happy to address any concerns you may have about the chemicals we are using in your pool. We use the standards set forth by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals. Our team is also knowledgeable about manufacturer guidelines on how to maintain and repair your pool.
Will I be charged extra for pool chemicals?
Our pool service cost includes any pool chemicals we need to add to your pool to maintain the levels recommended by the manufacturer.
In the rare case that an ABC specialist discovers a bigger problem with your pool chemicals, we will be in touch about a solution, but we will wait for your approval before we start any additional work. In these situations, we may need to schedule an appointment separate from your normal cleaning time.
What parts are you able to replace in my pool?
We will only recommend replacing a part when absolutely necessary. When we do advise installing a new part instead of repairing it, our experienced pool technicians can put in these components, sometimes in the same visit. To give you a better idea of what types of work we usually perform, we can swap 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?
The ABC team is always ready and willing to help you out. We have a wide range of parts on hand, so in many cases, your repair will be quick with no shipping fees! If we can make the necessary repairs using existing components, then we will. If you notice any issues with the parts in your home, don’t hesitate to ask us for help. We’ll only use new components when installing them and make sure everything works correctly before leaving.
