Alternate Pool Use Product Testing

Alternate Pool Use Product Testing

Have you ever wondered about testing out certain types of products on the water?  Dart Aerospace has and they used our pools to do it!  They land Search and Rescue helicopters to test out the flotation device attached to the landing gear.  Our pools are incredibly tough!  Of course, most are more mainstream.  Maybe you run a sporting goods store and want to test out and later display your new stock of kayaks or something.  Our Product Testing Pools are just the thing to help you in your endeavor.

Dog Life Jackets and Water Therapy

Thinking about Dog Life Jackets and Water Therapy

Today I saw someone hauling a boat. It got my thoughts churning. People use life jackets for themselves all the time. I have even seen some clever adaptations as a floating beverage cooler. But what about using a Dog Life Jackets for your dog?

While we don’t sell boats, we do sell pools. One of the ways are pools are used is for water therapy treatment. And there is nothing better than Dog Life Jackets and Water Therapy

Sometimes dogs need water therapy too. But what if your beloved pup doesn’t want to get his or her paws wet? Here’s a solution; snap on a Dog Life Jacket and it makes it easier to get Princess Scruffy into the water and begin her therapy.

Koi Garden

Koi Garden

Imagine this:

You are sitting in your hammock style swing, there’s a warm breeze on your face and the sunlight is gently kissing your sandal-clad feet that occasionally peeks out of the shade as you swig back and forth.  Your line of sight flows to the beautiful Koi Garden you have installed in your yard.  Peacefully, the koi swim like works of living art, pop to the surface testing and hoping to taste morsels of fishy treats that they gladly follow your hands for.  What a blissful moment!

I also like to watch a brilliantly colored displayed Koi. What if you have a pool you no longer swim in?  Did you know that you can transform your above ground pool into a Koi Garden?  Here’s a bonus: it’s proven a beautiful yard increases the value of your property. 

Maybe you don’t have a small pool.  We can help you with that.  We have 4.5ft x 4ft x 48” or 12ft x 12ft x 32” sized pools that could bring your Koi Garden to life.

 

Westminster Dog Show and Dog Therapy Pools

Westminster Dog ShowWestminster Dog Show and Dog Therapy Pools

Like other people I like to watch dogs run around being cute. With great big doggy grins, flapping ears & helicopter whipping tails they are a joy to watch. Next to finding stuff on your favorite video website, is by watching the Westminster Kennel Dog Show week.

These pooches are the pampered of the pampered! I’m talking about doggy massages,  specialty chefs & fur-stylists and doggy-parents stacked ten deep! No more are these dogs simple canines,If they’ve ever been!

These Westminster Dog Show  pups are agility athletes, four-legged princesses & princes.  They show up and square-up to artfully put to shame Parisian Fashion Shows. Whole all the time zooming through tunnels, flying over hurdles, & dancing the Dog-Trot with their handlers!  Finally, when the week of competitions comes to a close, Doggy Therapy Pool spas will be opening up their appointment books ready to relax Fido, Fee-Fee & Fritz!

You can help your precious pup have fun in his or her very own bone-shaped therapy pool (rubber floaty not included). Or if you wish to pamper your pooch Westminster Dog Show  style, by getting Duke his own heated pool to ease his fatigue after chasing squirrels all day long!

Heated Pools for Little People or Dwarves

So I grew up…just not to a height to cause any rulers to break.  I’m what most people call a “Little Person” or a Dwarf.  Being so vertically compact often comes with aches and pains.  Dwarfism is a condition of not just short stature, but ailments that attack joints and muscles.  Let’s face it folks…being a Little Person is not for wimps!  We are tough!  We are so active just to keep up with non-vertically challenged people.  (I won’t say normal; we are all normally human last time I looked out my window).  We climb on and off chairs, pull ourselves up and down stairs, and power walk through stores to find height-helpers when we don’t wish to have shelved items smash into our noggins! Phew!  Just thinking about all that we Little People do just tackle everyday life…makes me want to get a massage! 

Which proves my point; our bodies need ample doses out T.L.C.  One form of gentle tender loving care is through weight-bearing exercise – Swimming.  As a child, I used to swim in my bathtub.  It was great for the chronic muscle aches and stiff, arthritic joints.  Fortunately, I love to swim! Unfortunately it was counter-productive to swim in a regular pool. But then again, who wants to get in a ice-cold pool?  Other than those brave Polar Plungers that is.  Not me! And now I don’t have to, and neither do you!  Check out our Aqua Therapy Pools Heated Pools for Little People or Dwarves today!

The pools are the answer for a steady long treatment for aches and pains.

Olla The Lion was coming to to the end of her life in a small cage in small animal park, but she was rescued by the Big Cat Habitat in Sarasota Florida, and they called us up to provide a pool she would need after her surgery to rehab. She lived a long good life after that.

Who We Are

About Us: We started as a toy store chain just after World War II. When Doughboy first introduced the concept of above ground pool, we were one of the first companies in California to feature them. We sold toys and pools together for almost 50 years. Then in the mid 1990’s two important events happened. We joined the internet sensation and the portable above ground pool was invented.

See The Difference Between Legacy Brand Portable Pools And The Discount Store Brands

legacypoolsusa

We understand that sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between a quality portable above ground pool like the Legacy Pool and a chinese knock off you will see in the discount chain stores.

The difference is Night and Day

First The Liner with these portable pools the liner is the pool and is the most important part of the entire pool.  The only thing standing between you and a flooded out pack yard is a quality Pool Liner.

/p>

Do Not Buy FromReally EZ Pools

We really don’t like calling out a competitor as we have a few good ones in the industry.  But there is one so bad that they are harming the reputation of all pool companies and selling really dangerous pools on the internet and they need to be addressed

Be very careful who you are buying from! Just because someone says they can do something doesn’t mean they can!  Legacy Pools may cost just a bit more, but you won’t find videos like these on the internet

ReallyEzPools

We have received many calls and photographs from customers telling us they have done business with this company and that there pools failed, some times in the most dangerous situations

Here Is a list of Dangerous ReallyEZPools Failures

  1. The Clear Pool.

IMAG1208 A Customer asked us if we could make a clear pool, and we told her that we could not reliably make a clear pool as it would have no embedded scrim. We later were told that she wen to reallyezpools and was told that it could be done.  They actually made this pool for her, shipped it to here, she filled it  and with a day the pool had developed a leak and failed. She contacted the company and was sent another pool…..which failed the next day as well.   She asked for a refund and was refused. She did a charge back and ReallyEZPool lied to the credit card company and the woman got the money back.  This company called her a liar and a thief when they kept the money. Then they had the nerve to put a picture of her pre-failed pool on his website,  and said “see what we can do”

End Result Pool Failed Disastrously  In ONE DAY (twice)

But don’t take our word for It. The customer made a very convincing video


2. The Swim School Pool

Image 11

Another disastrous and complete failure from Reallyezpools. The Mitchell Aquatic Club In North Dakota thought they could save some money by buying from reallyezpools. All they ever bought was trouble. They had the pool up one day and at the end of the swim session just minutes after the kids exited the pool, the pool ripped wide open sending water into the electrical outlets and two neighboring stores a tanning salon and a paper store. A lawsuit was filed against reallyezpools for more than 100,000 dollars damage. And the kids were left high and dry without a pool. But it could have been much worse! If the kids were in the pool when this happened fatalities could have occured!

End Result Pool Failed Disastrously 100k Lawsuit

But again, don’t take our word for it watch the news report.


3 The Boat Show Disaster

boatshow

At the Georgia World Trade Center, for the Atlanta Boat show, another customer trusted that ted could make a pool that would last for them to display their boats at the show. This time the pool did not even last until the opening of the pool show, when it completely shredded sending water cascading through all the nearby booths. Needless to say like the pool, the show was a complete bust for that exhibitor. All because he’d save a few hundred bucks buying a pool for reallyezpools.  Damage again was in the tens of thousands and it made for a good laugh for the news anchors, and tears for the people who lost money on the pool, on the show and in business lost from this show failure

End Result: 1 Disastrously Failed Pool and $100K Lost

But don’t take our word for it, Check Out The News Report

 


bbb

 

Oh and BTW ReallyEzPools has an A+ rating.  How is this possible? You can buy positive ratings with the BBB  for $1500.00 …..but don’t our word for it…check out ABC’s 20/20 expose on the BBB

 

 

And these are not the only case.   

From Home Owners to Wounded Iraqi War Vets this company has sold pools that have failed on a regular basis and has failed to stand behind them.  Frankly, we know the owner (as the pool business is rather tight knit) and we would prefer if he stood in in front of these pools.  

We realize we are a competitor and our views are suspect, which is why we have offered separate sources. Please do not buy from this company…there  are other good companies out there besides Legacy Pools   but this is not one of them.

Other Notable Really EZ Pools Failures


 Again, we don’t normally call our competitor, but this company is dangerous, and we wanted you to know.

Thank you for coming to our rescue!

We originally bought a portable pool from another company and had nothing but trouble with the pool and the company.  The pool was of such low quality it leaked a river of water in the first few days and when we tried to contact the company who sold it to us, they were unavailable.  We packed the whole thing up and send it back.

Then we bought a Legacy Pool From Arthur’s Pools and it was a dream. The we got the pool when they said we would, it set up in about an hour, and when we needed advice they were right there to help us out.  We recommend Arthur’s Pools as being a good pool dealer with a good product.

Olla The Lion was coming to to the end of her life in a small cage in small animal park, but she was rescued by the Big Cat Habitat in Sarasota Florida, and they called us up to provide a pool she would need after her surgery to rehab. She lived a long good life after that.

Who We Are

About Us: We started as a toy store chain just after World War II. When Doughboy first introduced the concept of above ground pool, we were one of the first companies in California to feature them. We sold toys and pools together for almost 50 years. Then in the mid 1990’s two important events happened. We joined the internet sensation and the portable above ground pool was invented.

The First Thing You Need Is That Legacy Pools Is The Most Powerful Name In Above Ground Pools – Portable Pools

Portable Pool FAQs

 

Understanding Your Pool

The material used in making your portable pool liner is the very strongest poly-reinforced liner material available.  So strong is this type of material, it actually resists ripping and tearing.

However, it can be punctured.  Although punctures, pin-holes and small drip leaks are not covered under warranty it is important to understand that they have no impact on the structural integrity of your pool and never has a small leak or puncture resulted in a failed liner.  So take care when unpacking, moving and assembling your  pool liner.

 

“Heal Thyself Pool.”

As hard as it may be to believe, your pool actually can heal itself.  How is that possible? Because of the tightly woven polyester scrim embedded in the liner material, a puncture will not rip or tear further.  In most cases, an unintentional puncture is as small as the head of a ball-point pen. In this case, the impurities found in your water will eventually clog-up the opening. You can actually see it happening over a period of time. However, if you don’t want to wait, you can use the included repair kit. Oh, and you can even repair your pool while it is still filled with water.

 

Trouble-Shooting

What is “weeping”?: Weeping is a natural occurrence with welded liner material. What is happening is a small amount of pool water is being squeezed out of a new liner’s welded areas.  If your ground has a slope or grade to it, this small amount of water may form a puddle.  Weeping is only temporary and stops within a short amount of time.

 

My pool was punctured what can I do?: A puncture on your pool is easily fixable.  In most cases, the puncture can be fixed without draining the pool.  Simply use the repair kit included with your pool.

 

I have been told that a leak is the sign of a pool liner about to give way: This is true of the old non-reinforced vinyl liners of yesteryear (used with the metal-sided above-ground pool). If a leak occurred with those liners, they would easily rip further. This is NOT the case with your pool.  The reinforced material used in your pool is similar to what is used with military inflatable boats. This material actually resists ripping and tearing.

 

Can I let my dog or cat play in the pool?: We would be very surprised if you can get your cat to play in the pool.  Dogs, on the other hand, love our pools.  Their claws will not damage the liner, but may scuff the surface.  But be careful, dog hair could play havoc with your filtering system.

 

My U-Pipes are digging into the ground.:  This may happen, even if you place your pool on asphalt.  Water seeks its own level and if your ground has settled at all, the U-Pipes may dig down a bit.

 

The pool wall is really bowed in.: As mentioned before this may occur as your pool is filling or if it is only partially filled.  But once the pool water reach 2/3 full the bowing should decrease.  If it persists, then your ground has compacted and maybe settling under the liner more the perimeter. You may need to drain and relevel the ground.

 

The Vertical openings in the liner do not line up with the holes in the horizontal pipes.:  If the frame is not firmly connected, this can slightly misalign the holes and openings (usually on the long sides).  This is not a problem and will not interfere with your pools structural integrity.

 

One on my corners has popped out.:  It is rare, but it has happened. Your pool will not fail, fall over, or collapse (our competitors do not even have corners on their pools).  Unfortunately, the only way to re-attach the corner is to drain the pool. If this happens, leave it for the season, then, when the pool is not being uses as much, drain it and re-attach the corner.

 

My pool is creaking.: This will probably happen for the first few days.  The pool is settling and the liner is adjusting on the frame. There is nothing ominous about this sound.

 

There is a dirty ring at my water edge.: Just like a bathtub, a dirty ring may form along the water edge. This is a combination of pollutants in your water combining and drying on the water edge of your inside liner. Usually just a little rubbing will remove it. For more stubborn stains check with your local pool supply dealer, they will have something for you to use that will not harm the liner.

 

Are there any chemicals that can harm my liner?: Chlorine is perhaps that harshest chemical you will introduce to your pool.  This, if poured directly on the liner, may/will cause fading but will not deteriorate the liner material. Do not use any kind of petroleum solvent (paint thinner, acetone, etc…). This will dissolve the PVC coating on your liner.

 

What can I use to clean my liner?: In most cases, regular dish soap and water will work fine.  For more stubborn stains, you can use denatured alcohol (found in most hardware stores).  This will clean without damage to the liner material.

 

Can I leave my pool up all year-round?:  Yes.  It can even freeze solid without any damage to the liner. Remember this liner material is NOT like the traditional non-reinforced vinyl-liners used with metal-sided above-ground pools.  Your liner will not dry out, become brittle, crack or rip and tear like the non-reinforced liner material.

 

Characteristics of Your Pool

Punctures, Pinhole Leaks, and Drip Leaks: It is not uncommon, that during assembly, your liner develops a small puncture or pinhole leak.  These punctures are caused by various reasons (something was dropped on the liner, something poked through the liner during the install, it was dragged over an abrasive surface, etc.). although these kind of punctures are not covered under warranty, they do not have any structural effect on your liner or warranty and are easily fixable using the repair kit included.

 

An Out-of-Level Pool:  There is no way to predict what your ground will do when thousands of pounds of water weight are placed on top.  Despite all your best efforts, the pool may still end up being out-of-level. This may require you to drain, disassemble, and remove the pool so you can re-level (and possible re-flatten) the pool site.  We reserve the right to void your warranty if your pool is out of level or uneven.

 

Never Use Blocks to Level Your Pool:  It is common misconception that you can make this type of pool level by placing blocks, tiles, wood or other rigid surface underneath the base U-pipes.  This may keep the frame level but will not be leveling the pool liner. We reserve the right to void your warranty if your pool is out of level or uneven.

 

The Pool Wall is “Bowing” In:  “Bowing” is a natural characteristic of a soft-sided pool. This “Bowing” may be much more dramatic and profound during filling. This is because the water weight is pulling the liner downward forcing the top rail frame to lean in. In most cases, this bowing will decrease as the water level rises. However, it is not uncommon for slight bowing to remain.  If your ground has settled at all, or is slightly out-of-level, one side may bow more than another.

Water Levels Chlorine, Salt Or Copper Silver

2016-03-11 00:02:23 helpagpools-net
Water follows certain natural laws just like other thing around us.     Sanitizing  as in 1.4 chlorine and 7.4 ph  factor.  The Copper Silver unit or the Salt water generator would maintains the levels. You put a cup fill of salt in the water and the unit will convert to chlorine .It doesn’t mean there are chemical  In the water it mean the  salt is eliminating the impureness in the water to safe levels for neutral water..  The salt you introduce to the water will create the chlorine to sanitize the water.  The Copper and Silver ion unit will sanitize the water as it passes  over the diodes as the water return to the pool on the right side of the filter we send you.  Its not the chemicals in the water its balanced water  with the salt and the diodes which ever one you choose..   Yes, the water can be heated  will include in the price we give you.  The skamper ramp is a floating  platform for the animal to get in and out as it slowing sinks in water. The dog moves up and out.  Give him a treat several times and  he will remember and use it to get in and out anytime at his will.  The price on the dog pool is the correct one.  I didn’t  see the other one you referred to.   The cost to send to Netherlands is to the Port in Rotterdam or Amsterdam.  About 799.99.  After you receive a call from Port Authority you drive there and pick it up.  Or arrange with us .  The pool comes a a pallet 4’x 4 x 4 x 4 by 52” high. Can be be broken down to individual cartons for loading on your vehicle. The pallet is shrink wrapped tight and secured to pallet.

5 Things The Above Ground Pool Industry Does Not Want you To Know

You might be seeing some killer deals on old fashioned steel above ground pools these days, Well There is a reason…..5 to be exact

 

1. They are a pain to assemble and wrinkled liners.  They are not all that hard to put together but they are a challenge to put together right.  So many issues , so many potential problems and if you don’t get it just right your backyard dream will be a nightmare. And so called professional pool installers are no answer. We hear more negative feedback about these “professionals” that we have stopped referring them. So if you want leaky and wrinkled liners possible pool failures and all sorts of nightmares….these steel pools well let you have it.  install
   
2. Liner replacement So you bought a pool with a 50 year warranty.  You were  aware that your warranty does cover the liner and you could be replacing it ever few years. and going through the same installer nightmare all over again. These 20 and 25 mil liners as they are advertised can be as thin as fifteen mill in some places.  And finding a leak in  an above ground pool liner is like finding a needle in a haystack  tornliner
   
3. Lumpy Bottoms Pinhole leaks and rust spots. In a typical pool installation sand is used at the bottom, and sand has some unique properties.  It moves and causes lumpy bottom pools and the dirt just loves to gather in those depression. Also sand loves static electricity and will happily stick to the pool wall while you install the liner.   over a couple of years that little grain of sand will cause a pinhole leak in the liner, causing a tiny rust spot to develop on the pool. get enough of these and your lovely pool wall starts looking like a acne ridden teenagers face.  rustysand
   
4  Replacement parts and warranty satisfaction.  As your pool gets to be about five years old you will notice the acrylic parts are starting to crack from exposure to the extreme cold and heat that a year can put them through. And you will want to replace those. But good luck doing that. Pool companies have been bought and sold so many times, that you don’t even know if your pool’s manufacturers are going to be around in 5 years.  Then even if you can locate them and get them to answer the phone, getting them to honor their warranties almost takes a lawyer.  Wilbar, Sharklline, Swimnplay, Doughboy, Trevi and Cornelius Pools are most notorious for poor customer service and their pools should be avoided altogether  dealer
   
5. 60 year old technology. These pools were developed soon after World War II and nothing has really changed about them.  Rust, Leaking around the plumbing fittings, blowouts at the bottom of the pools, difficulty services and cleaning, usually turn these pools into green frog ponds in a year or two as the owner soon becomes disillusioned with the idea of pool ownership and the family dream of the backyard vacation spot fades into the memories of summers past  damaged

 Grass Poking Through, Wrinkles in the Liner, Leaks, Top Ledges that are hot to the touch  and can burn

So…..how can you keep the dream alive?

With a 21st century solution.   The Most Advanced, Toughest, Reliable Pool With Kevlar Technology can take you away from all the troubles of a “traditional” above ground pool

Sometimes…they new school, is the best school

INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE

Proper installation and maintenance of your heat pump pool heater can optimize its efficiency. It’s best to have a qualified pool professional install the heater, especially the electric hookup, and perform complicated maintenance or repair tasks.

Read your owner’s manual for a maintenance schedule and/or recommendations. You’ll probably need to tune up your pool heater annually. Because of a heat pump pool heater’s many moving and electrical parts, it will probably require periodic service by an air conditioning technician.

With proper installation and maintenance, heat pump pool heaters can last 10 or more years.

This is not  a LEGACY Pool Warranty

This is the warranty of another Pool Company we didn’t have to remove the name because no company name was provided, meaning this warranty is invalid…useless.

We hereby certIfy that the pool liners and frames (hereby referred to as “Pool”) are free from
any manufacturer’s defects. “Pool” has a warranty for a period of 5 years from the date of
purchase under a pro rata basis with the terms and conditions described below. This
limited warranty is extended to the original retail purchaser only

.
90 Days from Purchase – Zero Cost if deemed a Manufacturer’s Defect,
91st Day through Year One – Zero Cost for Repair, (shipping extra)
Year Two and Three – 50% of Cost for Repair (shipping extra)
Year Four and Five – 70% of Cost for Repair (shipping extra)

This is only a five year warranty, and only 90 days  if it needs to be replaced. Otherwise the will repair it after you spend $600.00 in shipping, and that is only for the first year!

Legacy Pools Have a 30 year warranty and the first 3 years are full replacement. and if something goes wrong with our pool, you don’t pay shipping

A warranty procedure is such so that we may determine the cause and nature of your
claim and the best way to facilitate a remedy:
STEP ONE: If a problem occurs with your pool purchase, send us an email, with a
description of the problem. Send to: customer.care@reallyezpools.com. You should receive
an email confirmation from us, confirming receipt of your email, within 24 hours of the next
business day. STEP TWO: In most cases, you will be instructed to photograph and email
photos of the problem. This determines the nature of the problem and provides us with
information on how to best help you.

The power to decide to cover their warranty is in their hands, they can simply say you do not qualify and you are done.

Legacy warranties , while rarely called upon, take care of you

This warranty covers only a “Pool” component. All other components, parts and/or
accessories that were part of your purchase may have their own warranty provided by their
manufacturer.
Any part repaired or replaced and returned to you shall be removed and installed (or
reinstalled) at owner’s expense. Under no condition will the maker be responsible for labor
charges, cost of loss of water or chemicals or any other related damages that may have
occurred.

At no time will the maker be responsible for any damage to the liner caused by your acts,
the acts of others and shall have no liability to repair liner, or part(s) so damaged. The

Portable Pool FAQs

Understanding Your Pool

The material used in making your portable pool liner is the very strongest poly-reinforced liner material available.  So strong is this type of material, it actually resists ripping and tearing.

However, it can be punctured.  Although punctures, pin-holes and small drip leaks are not covered under warranty it is important to understand that they have no impact on the structural integrity of your pool and never has a small leak or puncture resulted in a failed liner.  So take care when unpacking, moving and assembling your  pool liner.

 

“Heal Thyself Pool.”

As hard as it may be to believe, your pool actually can heal itself.  How is that possible? Because of the tightly woven polyester scrim embedded in the liner material, a puncture will not rip or tear further.  In most cases, an unintentional puncture is as small as the head of a ball-point pen. In this case, the impurities found in your water will eventually clog-up the opening. You can actually see it happening over a period of time. However, if you don’t want to wait, you can use the included repair kit. Oh, and you can even repair your pool while it is still filled with water.

 

Trouble-Shooting

What is “weeping”?: Weeping is a natural occurrence with welded liner material. What is happening is a small amount of pool water is being squeezed out of a new liner’s welded areas.  If your ground has a slope or grade to it, this small amount of water may form a puddle.  Weeping is only temporary and stops within a short amount of time.

 

My pool was punctured what can I do?: A puncture on your pool is easily fixable.  In most cases, the puncture can be fixed without draining the pool.  Simply use the repair kit included with your pool.

 

I have been told that a leak is the sign of a pool liner about to give way: This is true of the old non-reinforced vinyl liners of yesteryear (used with the metal-sided above-ground pool). If a leak occurred with those liners, they would easily rip further. This is NOT the case with your pool.  The reinforced material used in your pool is similar to what is used with military inflatable boats. This material actually resists ripping and tearing.

 

Can I let my dog or cat play in the pool?: We would be very surprised if you can get your cat to play in the pool.  Dogs, on the other hand, love our pools.  Their claws will not damage the liner, but may scuff the surface.  But be careful, dog hair could play havoc with your filtering system.

 

My U-Pipes are digging into the ground.:  This may happen, even if you place your pool on asphalt.  Water seeks its own level and if your ground has settled at all, the U-Pipes may dig down a bit.

 

The pool wall is really bowed in.: As mentioned before this may occur as your pool is filling or if it is only partially filled.  But once the pool water reach 2/3 full the bowing should decrease.  If it persists, then your ground has compacted and maybe settling under the liner more the perimeter. You may need to drain and relevel the ground.

 

The Vertical openings in the liner do not line up with the holes in the horizontal pipes.:  If the frame is not firmly connected, this can slightly misalign the holes and openings (usually on the long sides).  This is not a problem and will not interfere with your pools structural integrity.

 

One on my corners has popped out.:  It is rare, but it has happened. Your pool will not fail, fall over, or collapse (our competitors do not even have corners on their pools).  Unfortunately, the only way to re-attach the corner is to drain the pool. If this happens, leave it for the season, then, when the pool is not being uses as much, drain it and re-attach the corner.

 

My pool is creaking.: This will probably happen for the first few days.  The pool is settling and the liner is adjusting on the frame. There is nothing ominous about this sound.

 

There is a dirty ring at my water edge.: Just like a bathtub, a dirty ring may form along the water edge. This is a combination of pollutants in your water combining and drying on the water edge of your inside liner. Usually just a little rubbing will remove it. For more stubborn stains check with your local pool supply dealer, they will have something for you to use that will not harm the liner.

 

Are there any chemicals that can harm my liner?: Chlorine is perhaps that harshest chemical you will introduce to your pool.  This, if poured directly on the liner, may/will cause fading but will not deteriorate the liner material. Do not use any kind of petroleum solvent (paint thinner, acetone, etc…). This will dissolve the PVC coating on your liner.

 

What can I use to clean my liner?: In most cases, regular dish soap and water will work fine.  For more stubborn stains, you can use denatured alcohol (found in most hardware stores).  This will clean without damage to the liner material.

 

Can I leave my pool up all year-round?:  Yes.  It can even freeze solid without any damage to the liner. Remember this liner material is NOT like the traditional non-reinforced vinyl-liners used with metal-sided above-ground pools.  Your liner will not dry out, become brittle, crack or rip and tear like the non-reinforced liner material.

 

Characteristics of Your Pool

Punctures, Pinhole Leaks, and Drip Leaks: It is not uncommon, that during assembly, your liner develops a small puncture or pinhole leak.  These punctures are caused by various reasons (something was dropped on the liner, something poked through the liner during the install, it was dragged over an abrasive surface, etc.). although these kind of punctures are not covered under warranty, they do not have any structural effect on your liner or warranty and are easily fixable using the repair kit included.

 

An Out-of-Level Pool:  There is no way to predict what your ground will do when thousands of pounds of water weight are placed on top.  Despite all your best efforts, the pool may still end up being out-of-level. This may require you to drain, disassemble, and remove the pool so you can re-level (and possible re-flatten) the pool site.  We reserve the right to void your warranty if your pool is out of level or uneven.

 

Never Use Blocks to Level Your Pool:  It is common misconception that you can make this type of pool level by placing blocks, tiles, wood or other rigid surface underneath the base U-pipes.  This may keep the frame level but will not be leveling the pool liner. We reserve the right to void your warranty if your pool is out of level or uneven.

 

The Pool Wall is “Bowing” In:  “Bowing” is a natural characteristic of a soft-sided pool. This “Bowing” may be much more dramatic and profound during filling. This is because the water weight is pulling the liner downward forcing the top rail frame to lean in. In most cases, this bowing will decrease as the water level rises. However, it is not uncommon for slight bowing to remain.  If your ground has settled at all, or is slightly out-of-level, one side may bow more than another.

Above Ground Pool Decks

 Step By Step Deck Building Made Easy.


This process is the same for Portable Pools Or Above Ground Pools

   
The floor framing around the pool consists of 18 trapezoidal floor-joist frames–4-sided frames with two parallel sides and two sides that angle toward each other. The dimensions for building the frames are contained in the plans. Begin by using 2 x 6s to build 17 identical frames. The 18th frame will be built to fit after the other frames are assembled around the pool. To speed up the job of building the individual frames, use galvanized-metal corner brackets to attach the four perimeter boards. Then, use joist hangers to install the center support joist. The floor-joist frames are supported by a series of 4 x 4 posts set in the concrete pier blocks. Begin by setting the first pair of blocks directly onto the ground beside the pool. You don’t have to remove the grass, but if the ground is uneven, use a shovel to level it out. Position the first pier block so its center is 12 in. from the pool wall. Place the second pier farther away from the pool, with its center 18 in. from the center of the first.
   
   
Next, stand two 4 x 4 posts in the square sockets molded into the piers. Lay a 4-ft. level across the top cap of the pool–the coping–and mark a level line across the 4 x 4s. Next, remove the posts and measure down from each line a distance equal to the thickness of the pool coping, plus 1-1/2 in. for the 2 x 6 decking, 5-1/2 in. for the 2 x 6 floor frame and 1/2 in. for expansion. Make a mark at this position on each post, and cut them to length. Now you can put the posts back onto the piers, but make sure they’re in their original positions. Repeat this procedure for the next pair of piers and posts. Refer to the plan or use one of the assembled floor-joist frames to position the pier blocks. Once the second pair of posts is cut to size, set them into the piers and place a floor-joist frame on top. Drive 2-1/2-in. deck screws down at an angle through the frame and into the tops of the posts. Continue to work your way around the pool, setting pier blocks, posts and frames. After installing the 17 assembled frames, measure and cut the last one to fit the remaining space.
   
Complete the pool-deck frame by screwing 2 x 4 diagonal braces to the 4 x 4 posts. The bracing isn’t required if the deck is less than 30 in. high. 

Now set the pier blocks and posts for the 10 x 18-ft. sun deck. Again, refer to the plans for the exact positioning. The 42 piers are arranged in 11 rows spaced 24 in. on center. Once the posts are cut to size and set in the piers, install the 2 x 6 floor joists. Fasten the joists by screwing down at an angle into the tops of the posts with 2-1/2-in. deck screws.

One common technique used for decking around a circular pool requires each board to be tapered so they all radiate from the center of the pool. The method we used is a lot easier. Cut several 2 x 6s into 4-ft. lengths with one end of each cut at 80° instead of square. Slip the angled end of the first decking board under the pool’s coping, keeping it at least 1/2 in. away from the pool wall. Set the long edge of the deck board directly on the joint running between two adjoining floor-joist frames. Fasten the board to the joists with 2-1/2-in. deck screws. Lay the next board tight against the first one and screw it in place. (When the boards shrink, a 1/4-in. gap will appear between them.) Continue installing deck boards in this manner, with the angled end slipped under the coping, until you come to the next floor-joist frame. Lay a deck board in place and mark where it overlaps the joint between the two frames. Cut the board along the line and screw it in place. Trim the next two boards in the same manner, then go back to installing full-length boards again. Once all the deck boards are fastened down, use a circular saw to trim off their overhanging ends so they’re flush with the perimeter joists.
   
   
Now move over to the sun deck and start fastening down the 2 x 6 deck boards. Again, butt the boards tightly together and let them run long. Then, snap a chalkline and trim the boards flush with the joists Next, enclose the open space under the railing with 2 x 2 precut balusters (75 cents each)–these have one end beveled to 45°. Hold each baluster perfectly plumb, then screw it to the 2 x 6 railing and to the floor joist. Set the balusters 4 in. on center, with the beveled ends facing down
   
 
   
The final construction step is to build the stairs that lead from the sun deck down to the ground. To simplify this chore, we used five precut stair stringers ($7 each). Set the bottom ends of the stringers on concrete patio blocks. This will prevent them from sinking into the dirt and wicking up moisture. Screw the upper ends of the stringers to the floor joist. Create the stair treads by screwing 2 x 12s to the stringers.  

In backyards all across America, the summer landscape is once again blooming with above-ground swimming pools. According to the National Spa and Pool Institute, there are about 3.5 million of these opaline oases scattered from coast to coast, and 190,000 new ones are sold annually. 

It’s easy to see why above-ground pools are so popular: They’re affordable, quick and easy to install and require minimal maintenance. However, to get the most enjoyment out of your above-ground pool you need a wood deck that surrounds it. Not only will you never again have to climb a pool ladder, but a deck will also create a fun-in-the-sun gathering place for family and friends. It gives you a place to swim, sunbathe, dine at poolside or just visit. 

The trouble is that most pool decks are too difficult or complicated for the weekend carpenter to build. Plus, there are very few attractive pool-deck plans available, and most of those require you to dig and pour dozens of concrete footings. 

Fortunately, we discovered a better, simpler approach for building a handsome pool deck. Ours, shown here, may look complicated, but we employed a few timesaving techniques that greatly simplified the construction process and, in turn, dramatically reduced the amount of work required to complete this project. And best of all, we didn’t have to dig a single hole. 

Deck Design
Our deck is built around a 21-ft.-dia. pool. It’s constructed entirely of pressure-treated lumber and features a 360° wraparound pool deck that’s connected to a spacious 10 x 18-ft. sun deck. The 3-1/2-ft.-wide circular pool deck provides easy access to the water, while the sun deck is large enough to accommodate a table and chairs and a few chaise lounges. 

As mentioned earlier, we employed a timesaving deck-building method that didn’t require us to dig postholes or pour concrete footings. It’s called a floating-foundation system. The entire deck is supported by concrete pier blocks that simply sit on the ground. 

Floating foundations are generally allowed by building codes nationwide, including regions that experience frost heave. However, codes do differ from town to town, so be sure to check with your local building department before starting construction on your pool deck. 

For this project, we used  precast piers ($5 each), which measure 8 in. high x 11 in. square and weigh about 45 pounds. Molded into the top of each are 1-1/2-in.-wide slots and a 3-1/2-in.-square recessed socket. The slots accept 2 x joists, while the socket is used to support a vertical 4 x 4 post. 

To give you some idea of how much time and trouble we saved using the , consider this: It took us less than a day to set all 36 piers and 4 x 4 posts for the perimeter pool deck. If we had used the traditional posthole method, it would’ve taken at least two days just to dig the three dozen holes and pour the concrete footings. 

The plans for building this deck are available free of charge from , the company that sells  piers. We ordered the Splash Deluxe plan, which came with a detailed materials list, cost estimator and instructions. 

We spent about $2400 for materials to build our deck, which included the pressure-treated lumber, pier blocks, wood sealant, joist hangers and screws.

” I bought a pool from (edited) because the price was cheaper than from a pool dealer. I thought I was getting a bargain. Then a stack of steel and rubber was delievered to my door step. I didn’t have the first clue what to do with this, so I called (edited) for help. They didn’t have the first clue either.  I realized I made a big mistake! I called the above ground pools experts for help and they offered me ther advice service even if I did not buy the pool from them. It turns out that (edited) gave me a poor filtering system that would not keep up with the size pool that I bought.  Just one mistake after another.  I hope others can learn from my mistakes, which is why I am sending this to you. My advice, don’t buy from (edited) or any other store that sells pools as a sideline. Get your pool from someone who knows their stuff. If you did make the same mistake and need help, their service is worth every penny”

These pools require more expertise than most people have. But for our customers, we are happy to share.

Dear Consumer. “So you think your so smart” From the Backwoods of no where!.

The BBB RATING SCAM  Arthurs Pools

The biggest scam of all in America The

Crooks at the Better Business Bureau. The Bad Business Bureau. Its not a Govt. Agency. It’s a protection racketeering

Dear Consumer. “So you think your so smart” From the Backwoods of no where!. Do I have your attention now? Read on,… you are naïve my friend.

So, “you think you have done your homework“ “We’re really crooks, thieves and outlaws.” This deployment of a caricature of our business is to harm us and put us out of business with and F rating and folks like you fully believe it without really doing one more check of facts. Is this fair ? It’s the BBB who decide who can be in business and those who can’t by fraudulent ratings bought and paid for “under the table “.

Please do us a favor now go to BBB Rating Scam on a Goggle Search. You will find it’s the BBB who is the scar Artist. Amy be suspect of any business with an A plus rating. It might be bought and paid in cash in envelopes to BBB.

Its just the opposite !. Reliable Business don’t need a BBB rating. Its their years in business and still operating is a biggest factor than a BBB rating. Business don’t stack in business if they don’t satisfy their customer.

The Commercial Aquatic Sanitation Standard for your Pool

The Commercial Aquatic Sanitation Standard for your Pool

bumperballpoolThe first publication of the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) has been completed, a six-year process undertaken by the Centers for Disease Control and many industry experts to develop the uniform national standard for water quality and Recreational Water Illness (RWI) response. The CDC states that it is “intended to transform the typical health department program into a data-driven, knowledge-based, risk reduction effort to prevent disease and injuries and promote healthy recreational water experiences.”

Why should you be concerned about the MAHC?

The MAHC was conceived as a means to address growing problems with RWIs because traditional chlorine-based disinfection routes have not been sufficient enough to keep these outbreaks in check. With the public’s over-reliance on chlorine, the industry has seen an increase in chloramines and other chlorine byproducts such as swimmer’s asthma. One of the goals of the MAHC is to validate secondary disinfection options, such as ozone and UV light, which are safe and effective against chlorine-resistant pathogens.

How does DEL Ozone fit in?

Primary disinfection methods are traditionally completed with the use of chemicals such as chlorine and bromine, but with the rise of RWIs secondary disinfection methods are necessary to ensure complete sanitary swimming conditions. DEL’s own Beth Hamil was an essential member of the MAHC Disinfection & Water Quality Technical Committee utilizing years of ozone experience to recognize ozone and UV light as the secondary disinfection standard for aquatic sanitation.

While UV light inactivates contaminants as it passes through the chamber, it pales in comparison to continuously generated ozone which instantly oxidizes pathogens, organics, chloramines, and on-contact killing of crypto, regardless of water turbidity. Ozone is the most powerful oxidizer in nature, providing a wide spectrum disinfection that goes far beyond UV in effectiveness. DEL Ozone systems properly meet all of the conditions outlined in the code and are approved Secondary Disinfection Systems which eliminate RWIs and control chloramines levels.

Dear Tuxie: Can I have an Legacy Pool?

 

 dog

 Dear Tuxie,

I see other dogs on arthurspools.com have Legacy pools and they look like they are really fun. But my owner says that dogs are too RUFF on pools and I would hurt the pool.

 

Can Dogs Have Legacy Pools?

Signed Duke

 

 Tuxie

Dear Duke

Tell your owners they don’t have to worry about Legacy Pools. They are TUFF and they can stand up to any thing we dogs can do to them, I would tell you to ask Razor and Pete…but as you can see they are all tuckered out from a day in their pool.  Have your owners watch the videos below and they will see that not even lions can hurt these pools
