What’s the #1 routine task pool owners dread the most? Having to clean the pool, since you don’t really get a vacation from this regular task, unless you close off your pool for the winter. Understandably, no one will swim in a pool with green or cloudy water, and your filters and pumps will quickly get overworked if you allow debris to build up on your the surface of your water or the bottom of your pool. ABC customers don’t have to worry about any of these scenarios, as our detail-oriented and reliable technicians will come at a regular interval to brush, skim and vacuum your pool. You can say goodbye to all those unsightly leaves, dirt and other debris that wash into your pool—without your having to even lift a finger. In addition, ABC will make any necessary adjustments to your pool chemistry—your pH, cyanuric acid, chlorine, alkalinity and calcium hardness—and even acid wash and drain your pool, in the rare likelihood that you need that done to restore your pool chemistry or remove the most stubborn stains.
The mechanics behind the operation of your pool can be complicated and time-consuming, especially since we only have to learn more about equipment and parts when there is a problem. When something is amiss, you may spend hours upon hours trying to pinpoint the problem, finding the right parts and then actually doing the repair. Why spend all that time and hassle when you can have an expert from ABC on your doorstep to get your pool back up and running quickly, especially when you know it will be done right the first time? Our trained and experienced technicians can fix your broken filters, pumps and other worn or malfunctioning parts. We often have replacement parts with us so that you aren’t waiting for a delivery to start using your pool again.
Some of us move into a home with a pool that doesn’t match our style or tastes, while others of us may realize it’s time to invest in some upgrades to help your family make the most of your investment. If you know what you want or want to explore what’s possible, ABC can advise you on your options to improve your home’s resale value and increase the enjoyment of your pool.
Over time, the elements here in Sugar Land can lead to significant wear and tear on your pool plaster. Some of the signs that you may need to replaster your pool include a rough texture to your pool floor or stubborn stains that just won’t go away. Replastering can also give you a whole new look or color to your pool surface. Whatever your motivation, ABC can give you an honest assessment of how to address your pool issues and whether replastering makes sense for you. If you do decide to have your pool replastered, our experts can help you with all the options so that the end product exceeds your expectations.
Your pool should be a place where your everyday stresses fade away, not somewhere that increases your blood pressure. With ABC’s help, you can truly relax and just keep swimming!

How often will you send a technician to my home to clean my pool?
When you contact us about our pool cleaning services, we can discuss your desired schedule and what would make the most sense, given the amount of debris that regularly ends up in your pool, the size of your pool and other location-specific factors.
How often would you recommend we check our pool chemicals?
Maintaining a balanced pool is the best way to keep your water safe for your swimmers. Pool manufacturers generally recommend testing your water at least once a week, although you should also check your chemical levels after a large rainfall or another major weather event.
When can I use my pool again after a chemical treatment?
Our pool specialists may recommend “shocking” your pool to counter the buildup of chloramines in your water. If we do suggest taking this step, we will be sure to get in touch with you to get your approval and to tell you more about the process, so you don’t have any unexpected surprises.
What we usually tell our customers is that they can begin using the pool again when your chlorine is back to manufacturer-recommended safe levels. In most cases, your pool will be safe to swim in again in about an hour. As is the case with any question you may have, our specialists are happy to provide you with an answer or address any concerns you might have.

We completely understand that once you make the decision to hire a pool service, you are ready to make a change.

I'm thinking about giving our backyard makeover. Can ABC help?
The pool is often the centerpiece of our backyards and where we spend a significant amount of our free time, so why not invest in making it an even more appealing gathering spot? ABC is much more than just a pool service, so enlist us to:
- substitute grass around your pool area that can tolerate a higher level of traffic and moisture
- add in ornamental plants to turn your pool deck into a more inviting space

We make sure that our technicians stay up to date on the latest pool technologies, as well as industry best practices.

What pool chemicals do you use, and how will they impact my family and pets?
ABC’s pool technicians only use chemicals recommended by the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, and maintain the pool using manufacturer-recommended levels. As a family-owned and run business, the well-being of your family is our priority, so we take special care to keep your pool balanced so that your swimmers will remain safe. Our technicians are happy to answer questions you have about the products we are using in your pool and address your concerns.
Does ABC charge customers for adding chemicals to my pool?
ABC’s pool service includes regular testing of your water by our pros, who make any adjustments needed to keep your chemicals in the proper balance. Our pool cleaning customers are invoiced for each visit.
If your pool technician uncovers a larger problem with your pool chemicals that requires an involved fix, we will reach out to you to let you know what’s going on and what we’d recommend to do to resolve it. If the scope of the project lies outside of the normal pool cleaning schedule or times, we will get you an estimate to have that work done. We will wait for your approval before moving forward.
What types of equipment can you replace in my pool?
If we can, we will repair a malfunctioning part. In some situations, it makes more sense to install a new part than repair the failing equipment. The replacements we can do are for:
- Pool lighting
- Circulation and suction lines
- Time clocks
- PVC pipe (plus needed materials to fix leaks)
Will you repair my pool with used parts?
One benefit of going with ABC is that we often have spare replacement parts with us, so you don’t have to worry about ordering those from a third party. If we do find that it makes more sense to replace a part, rather than repair it, we are happy to install that new part for you, once we hear back from you that the repair has been authorized. We’ll also make sure the new part is working correctly.
