Monsoon season in AZ and your swimming pool

Monsoon season is almost here and it is time to do all we can to prevent issues with your pool. Algae blooms can come at anytime, but are more common during the Monsoon storms. The reason for this is that algae needs food and that food is provided more readily during numerous storms. With the blowing wind and rain, organic matter is being introduced to your pool on a nearly daily basis and on some occasions many times a day. This raises the levels of phosphates in your pool and increases the demand on your sanitizer. Every pool has organic matter naturally: swimmers, soap from swimsuits, pets, leaves, dirt, rain water are all forms of just some of the phosphates that are introduced to your pool regularly. But with the heat of the summer, along with this higher phosphate level, you are creating a prime situation for a algae party in your pool. Keep your swimming pool in great shape all Summer long with one of our weekly swimming pool maintenance programs. Learn more at the link below:

Is your swimming pool green? Algae spores constantly enter your swimming pool, brought in by rain, wind or even contaminated swimsuits. When conditions are right, an algae bloom can rather quickly. Out of balance water, lack of proper circulation, filtration and sanitation (lack of chlorine) can be the primary cause of the algae that is turning your swimming pool green. The process for treating a green swimming pool depends on the severity of the green pool algae problem.  When you contact Pink Dolphin Pool Care for you estimate on green pool cleaning, we will ask you a few questions to such as: Can you see the bottom of the pool? What type of pool filter do you have? Do you have a plaster or pebble pool? These questions will help us determine the best course of action to take when cleaning up you green pool.  Prices for green swimming pool clean ups start as low as $350. Prices may be higher depending on the severity of the algae problem and size of the pool. Give us a call today at 602-688-7465  to set up for appointment and get your pool looking great again

Pool Equipment System Check

Every year, due to the extremes in heat and low humidity in Arizona, it is a good idea to have your pool equipment inspected. O-rings, pump seals filter grids or media, and many other parts of the pool equipment, generally need some maintenance. In the dry Arizona climate, many of these items dry out and can potentially create leaks that can damage or affect the pool equipment operation.

Pink Dolphin Pool Care offers a complete pool equipment system check for a flat fee of $75. If your swimming pool equipment need anything repaired that is discovered during the pool equipment system check you will be given a detailed report with the appropriate recommendations.

Call us at 602-688-7465 to schedule your full systems check.

Arizona Pool Pump Law-Title 44

If you are an Arizona homeowner with a swimming pool you’ll want to be aware that the Arizona Legislature passed Title 44 on January 1, 2012. This new law mandates new energy-efficiency standards for residential swimming pool pumps and motors.

The Arizona law doesn’t mean you have to  change your in-ground pool motor right away, but it does require any newly installed pumps that are one horsepower or greater to meet the new standards. Two speed motors will be the minimum efficiency for pool pump installations moving forward, and non energy friendly single-speed pumps will no longer be allowed under Title 44.

If your swimming pool pump has only has one speed, it’s running full-blast, 3450 rpm even when your pool cleaner, waterfall or in-floor system aren’t operating. There is no option to dial back to a lower rpm to circulate the pool water which is what is needed a majority of the time.

This is a huge waste of energy, and it’s costing swimming pool owner about 80 percent more in electric bills than the owner should be paying.

While some critics of the new regulation complain that it will require Arizona homeowners to purchase expensive upgrades, most pool owners should recoup the cost within three years with the amount of money saved on their monthly APS or SRP electric bills.

Excluding your air conditioner, most residential single speed pool pumps consume more electricity than any other household appliance. Most Arizona swimming pool owners can expect to save between $40-$60 per month on their electric bill by replacing their single speed pool pump with a variable speed swimming pool pump.

Additional information about the Arizona law regulating pool pumps can be found in Title 44, Chapter 9, Article 19, Section 44-1375 of the Arizona Revised Statutes
