Here’s What We Recommend
The Zodiac family of products, including Jandy and Polaris, in particular, we have found to be exceptionally reliable for both operation and manufacturer support. As such, you will see they are our recommendation for pumps, filters, controls, salt generators and automatic cleaners. Also, as a member of the Zodiac Pool Pro Network, we can provide extended warranties on all Jandy, Polaris, and Zodiac products and parts.
Links to each of the manufacturer websites are included, or you can contact us for more information or to schedule for a FREE estimate.
The pump is the heart of a filtration system, and should always be properly sized to the hydraulics set up by the original pool builder and features of the pool. Certain situations require specific types of pump, but for most pool fitration, we recommend the Jandy FloPro variable speed pump.
The Jandy FloPro pump offers the best of all worlds in a pump. It is one of the quietest pumps in the industry, provides plenty of power for any size pool, and is easily maintained. The clear plastic trap lid makes it easy to see if the basket needs to be cleaned, and the union plumbing on the intake and discharge make it easy to remove for maintenance. And with a variable speed pump, you are able to lower energy consumption and operating costs by up to 70% compared to single speed pumps.
Our particular favorite is the Jandy DEV Diatomaceous Earth filter coupled with the Jandy exclusive Neverlube backwash valve. With this combination, you are getting the best quality of filter and a design of backwash valve that requires little-to-no maintenance.
The Raypak digital heater utilizes a simple and long-tested design to provide heating for pools of all sizes. The digital display allows for easy programming and will self-diagnose many problems within the heater for faster troubleshooting and maintenance. As a division of Rheem, Raypak focuses almost exclusively on the production of heaters, and the reliability of their product is a testament to that.
With many variations available, any pool can be equipped with a control system to control the simplest of on-off functions to more complex lighting, heating and spa schedules. When considering a remote system, we recommend the Jandy Aqualink RS system along with the iAqualink control to allow for controlling of everything from your computer or smart device…ANYWHERE. Their web interface and app are easy to understand and control, and with many options offered in the Aqualink family, you can find a perfect configuration that works for your pool without paying for any overkill.
Within this style of cleaner, the particular cleaner that we recommend is the Polaris TR35P along with a Polaris PB4-SQ booster pump. The design is similar to the tried-and-tested Polaris 380 model that has been around for years, with an upgrade in some critical components and a sleeker look. With 4-5 hours of operation each day, it’ll keep your pool clean of leaves and small debris.
Salt chlorine generators are a rapidly growing alternative to standard chlorination for your swimming pool. Originally made popular in Australia, over 40% of the new in-ground pools built in the US now use this technology. But don’t be mistaken, Salt pools are still chlorine pools.
With chlorine generators, standard table salt (Sodium Chloride) is converted into free chlorine to sanitize your pool water. During the sanitation process, the chlorine kills bacteria and then reverts back to Sodium Chloride, thus restarting the whole cycle, eliminating your need for chlorine sticks, and considerably lowering your chemical costs. In addition, the introduction of salt to the water gives it a softer feel on your skin for an improved quality of swimming.
Of the salt chlorine generators in the industry, we recommend both the Jandy TruClear system for it affordability and ease of maintenance and the Jandy AquaPure system due to its simple interface and ability to easily work in conjunction with the Jandy control systems, for an entirely automatic pool experience.
We can all do our part to create a greener environment, even in our swimming pools. With the introduction of new, greener options, such as variable speed pumps, which can save up to 90% in energy costs, and LED pool lights, which save up to 86% compared to standard incandescent lights, there are options out there. Contact us if you’d like to consider either of these, or would like to know of other green options for your pool. Some even come with money saving rebates from the state for making the switch!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The pool looks brand new......it is 27 years old. They also put a dolphin and beach balls on the bottom (made out of tiles) to show where the pool depth changes. I use this company now to maintain the pool and keep it in good shape. They are very good at keeping problems from happening."
"Pooltek exceeded my expectations. We opted for a somewhat minimal service, but my pool was left sparkling and ready for winter. Even in October, they were booked out a bit (good sign), but we had them come as soon as possible.
They showed up and got right to work cleaning out the mess of old leaves we weren't able to get ourselves. The techs were professional and friendly and offered some advice on my options.
Their prices are very reasonable! Highly recommended!"
