Why wait? Get your Fiberglass Pool Installation this Winter

With the cold weather upon us, it’s easy NOT to think about swimming in your own backyard pool. However, getting your new dream pool installed over the Winter will save you money and time. This is off-season and there are benefits for scheduling your new pool design and install today. What about a fiberglass pool?

STRENGTH and DURIBILITY

You may wonder if a fiberglass pool can sustain through cold weather and the answer is yes. In fact fiberglass pools have amazing strength and believe it or not, flexibility. The pool will not crack simply because it’s cold, in fact fiberglass pools stand the test against Winter, even offers more structural stability than other materials like concrete and vinyl.

SHAPES

There are many shapes to chose from such as rectangular, classic, free-form, custom, kidney, lap pools and more. Let our team of professionals help you decide the best layout for your backyard paradise. You can add tanning ledges, steps, spill over spa, additional recreational add-on’s, lighting (underwater illumination) and coping just like you can with any other pool types.

MAINTENENCE

Fiberglass pools can be easier to maintain because the surface is not porous and algae does not grow as much as it does with other types of materials.This saves you on the chemicals and overall maintenance. If you properly maintain your pool year after year, you will also be pleased with the longevity your fiberglass pool will offer you.

Already have a fiberglass pool? Have you Winterized it yet? We would like to help you get your pool ready for Winter.

Think beyond the swimming pool itself, imagine soaking in a bubbling hot spa. Want to stay warm and swim during the Winter month’s? We can add gas heat to the pool and just like that, you are swimming all year round. Your new fiberglass pool is waiting!

All of us here at Aqua Fun Inc would like to thank you for reading our blog! If you know anyone who would like to know more about Fiberglass Pool Installation This Winter, then be sure to share this article or simply call Aqua Fun Inc. today – (770) 419-7119 or schedule time to talk here.

Guard Your Inground Swimming Pool Against Bad Weather

aqua-fun-prepare-pool-storm

What do you do if a storm is coming?

What can you do to prepare your swimming pool for an impending bad storm?

You’ve most likely heard of people who decide to throw their lawn furniture inside the in-ground swimming pool to keep it from flying around during high winds. Don’t do this, the furniture could tear the vinyl pool liner, damage the pool tile or chip the fiberglass or cement. Our suggestion is to bring inside anything that can not be tied down.  Here are a few more tips when preparing your unground pool for a storm:

  • Take off the pool cover, it’s a lot of money to replace a cover and it could actually cause more damage to leave it on.
  • Turn off the electric at the circuit breaker and shut down the gas line.
  • Cover the motors for the pumps if possible.
  • If your pool was built by Aqua Fun Pools then rest assured knowing there is proper overflow drainage, but if another pool builder did not allow for proper drainage then you can take 1 foot of water out of the pool. Do not drain it as it could literally pop out of the ground under certain circumstances. Prevent this from occurring and do not drain your pool.
  • Tree limbs hanging? Get them trimmed up before Hurricane season.
  • Treat your pool to algaecide before the storm and shock it after the storm.

Once the storm is over it’s time to remove the debris, bring the PH balance back or simply “shock” the water to get rid of any contaminates that may have entered the pool during the storm. Then you can run your filter until the water runs clear. You may wonder if it is better to drain the pool because it can look impossible to clean but don’t do it. Follow these simple steps or better yet, give our team a call and we can come service your inground swimming pool after the storm to make sure it is in running condition, safe for family and friends to take a dip.

One last note, you may want to give your pump 24 hours to dry out before using it

We want to thank you for checking out Aqua Fun’s latest blog post. If you know anyone who is interested in Bad Weather Proofing Your Inground Swimming Pool please don’t hesitate to share this post. Contact Aqua Fun and schedule your no obligation consultation, be sure to schedule it here.

With the first day of school coming up, throw the pool party everyone will talk about. Throw the ultimate end of Summer Pool Party at your house!

Our team at Aqua Fun receives feedback from our clients and others with their reasoning for wanting a new in-ground swimming pool. One of the recurring stories we hear go back to their childhood or family Summer memories at the pool. Most people growing up in America can remember laying out by the pool, swimming in the pool from day to night, perfecting their front flip off the high dive or getting a gorgeous tan while listening to music.

Here are a few tips to throw that end of summer pool party everyone will talk about:

  1. Create a great theme. Here are a few ideas: Hawaiian Luau, Back to School Bash, Star Wars pool party or Football theme. It could be all sports themed simply by adding a volley ball and a volleyball net inside the pool and/or adding a floating basket ball goal with a waterproof basketball. Having a score keeper and referee will bring the intensity up a notch.
  2. Invite people about 2 weeks out. Mail invitations, send an Evite or start a Facebook Event. Let them know there will be food, fun and great memories made. Be sure to incorporate your theme on the invitations.
  3. Plan your meal or snack plan in advance. Here are some quick and easy ideas for a refreshing food spread: fruit salad, cream cheese rolls, fresh sliced vegetables with fresh buttermilk ranch dressing, eskimo pies, watermelon, pasta salad, kabobs, Rice Krispy Treats and Lavender fruit pops. Find perfect recipes on our Pinterest board and plan in advance.
  4. Add fun pool toys. Even if you don’t have a theme, these ideas are fun for every pool party: noodles, beach balls, volleyball net, small squirt guns and super soakers, floaters and of course glowing light balls. Lay out on a big pink flamingo or swan float and dive to the bottom of the pool to get the glow stick. Fun pool toys are a must for any pool party!
  5. Classic Pool Games and other Pool Games can be planned in advance. Make it easy, pick a game from one of these blog posts – classic pool games and/or other pool games, then modify the games and pool toys to match your pool party theme.
  6. Keep extra supplies such as sunblock for adults and children, tanning lotion, chapstick, bug spray, aloe lotion, a first aid kit and water bottles. Buy a few decorative baskets or buckets to hold these items for easy access and aesthetic visibility.
  7. Hire a professional photographer. You can find a good deal on Groupon or use Thumbtack to find a local photographer. Make it a tradition every year, create those memories!
  8. Fire and Water! (Another fun theme idea) – There are many creative ways to incorporate an outdoor fire to the backyard activities, especially at night. Roast marshmallows, make s’mores and tell summer stories around the fire. What a great way to end the pool party with a nice relaxing fire crackling in the night air. Dip your toes in the water after drying off next to the fire. Want to build that backyard fireplace or fire pit? We can help you with that! Just click here to request more information about building an outdoor fire pit or fireplace by your in-ground pool.
  9. Send everyone off with a special gift. If you want to make a lasting impression, send everyone off with a gift of some kind. If it’s for children may be a goody bag with fun little games and candy would be a great place to start. What about a t-shirt with the party theme and year saying something like “We survived the Thompson’s Back-To-School Bash 2017”. How about an adult goodie bag with items such as customized drink coozies, pens, calendars, hats, paper fans, hand-made soaps or lotions.
  10. Start a theme based Song Playlist. 

At Aqua Fun, we love to hear about your great Summer experiences around the pool. We appreciate hearing from you and witnessing all the fun you’re having by posting your Family & Friends Pool Party pictures on our Facebook page.

Swimming Pool Games Are Summer’s Most Fun

We wrote a blog post called Classic Pool Games and had great feedback. Our team at Aqua Fun Pools decided to offer you a few more pool game ideas with a focus this time on Modern Pool Games.

Water Hoops

Love basketball or volleyball? If so, then you will love water hoops. There is an entire cottage industry built just for pool games. Water Hoops is at the top of the most popular Modern Pool Game list. Check out the different types of water hoops for sale on Amazon – inflatable basketball hoops, side mounted basketball goal, volleyball hoops and  floating basketball goals. This is a great way to bring family and friends together in a competitive manner.

Another Water Hoop Game smaller children love to play is swimming underwater, through a hula-hoop.

Watermelon Relay

Watermelon, as we all know, is a Summer fresh fruit staple and is also known for it’s All-American, Summertime image. Fun thing is, whole watermelons can easily become a thrilling pool game. You have to be in decent shape because technically you won’t be ale to touch the bottom. Players must push a watermelon from one end of the pool to the other with other touching the bottom of the pool with their feet. The challenge comes with a greased down melon.

Fish

Have you ever played games with the basketball such as P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E? Well think of Fish as the swimming pool version of P-I-G or H-O-R-S-E. It’s a repetitive game where player #1 performs a task that must be repeated. If any of the players are unable to do the task then they get the first letter in the word F-I-S-H. Be careful, whoever gets all four letters looses. Also, rules should be set to determine fairness.

Octopus

In the pool game called Octopus, someone is “IT”. It’s similar to Sharks & Minnows but in this game, the solo-Octopus or “IT” stands in the middle of the pool while players line up one one side of the pool and attempt to get to the other side without being tagged. Whoever gets tagged has to hold hands with “IT” and they tag the players together. With each round, the Octopus arms extend further and all players must be tagged. Then a new round can start and a new “IT” can be picked.

Do you have any modern pool games y0u’d like to add to this blogpost? We’ love to hear from you, and if you have photos of your family or friends playing any of these pool games post it on our Aqua Fun Facebook page.

Best Inground Pool Size & Shape

Tips from Aqua Fun Swimming Pools & Spa’s

FreeForm Shaped Pool

Free Form Shaped Pool with Flagstone Coping, Spillway, Tanning Ledges and Diving Board

How do you know if you are choosing the right pool for your budget, needs and yard?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What is the purpose of getting a pool?
  2. What is your budget?
  3. How much space do you have to build a pool?

Purpose for swimming pool?

Are you adding a pool to your backyard for the purpose of daily exercise? Or are you planning to entertain a large family and/or group of friends? Do you enjoy playing classic pool games with your family?  If the purpose is exercise then a lap pool may work, those tend to be rectangular in size. You can opt for a sports pool which is great size and shape for an afternoon Volleyball game and tend to be shallow on each end and deeper in middle and can extend past a rectangle shape looking more like an “L”.

On the other hand if you are building your new dream inground pool mainly for entertainment purposes you may want a free-form or kidney shaped pool with a spill-over spa and tanning ledges. The choice is yours and together with our experienced designers and builders, you will have the pool of your dreams!

How much pool can you afford?

Depending on your budget, you have choices. The first place to start is looking at the price difference between a vinyl pool, fiberglass pool or gunite pool. With any of the three choices, there are always pool maintenance costs associated with it so you want to equate that into your choices as well. For example, Vinyl Pools do require vinyl pool liner replacements over time, and the fun thing about replacing the vinyl liner is that you can give your pool a make-over.

If you want to make your neighbors jealous, think about going with a gunite pool upgrading  to a  Pebble-Tec finish. Just like with anything, details matter and the details can increase the cost. For example, adding glass pool tiles may cost more than just adding standard pool tiles, but the reward is magical! Imagine these glass tiles glistening in the sun and reflecting off the water.

Get financed for your new pool with our preferred partner.

How is your Backyard Space?

Do you have a small space with a sloping backyard? If you do then that will affect the layout of your pool. There are creative ways to maximize even the smallest yard. If your backyard is a wide open space you have more choices in size and shape and our team at Aqua Fun work with preferred quality construction builder partners who can work in conjunction with us to make any backyard more functional and as beautiful as you want. With larger backyards you can add backyard kitchens and fireplaces to compliment the pool decking and theme.

Here are some different pool shape and size choices to consider:

Geometric Shapes – circles, ovals, rectangles, square
Free form, Kidney, Figure 8, Lazy L, Greek & Roman shaped pools

Exercise – lap pool, sport pool

Pollen and Your Swimming Pool

A recent report from the AJC says that the 2017 Spring Pollen season is going to a “pollen explosion”. Multiple news reports say that people who are susceptible to allergies may have a hard time this Spring.

Pollen is not only potent for allergies, but it can weigh on your mind when deciding the date for your Pool Opening. Our team at Aqua Fun is ramped up for a busy Pool Opening season in spite of the high pollen count predictions. Don’t hesitate to give us a call and get your pool opening scheduled – (770) 419-7119.

We’d like to offer some tips that will make your pool opening decision a clear experience.

Since the pollen is predicted to be worse this year, should you go ahead and open your pool? Our team at Aqua Fun says “yes” and it’s “never too early to start swimming again”. To make it easier, here are a few things you can do to prepare, maintain and prevent damage to your inground swimming pool this Spring Season:

  • Plan to skim it everyday during the heaviest pollen counts.
  • Maintain and Prevent Damage by adding Aluminum Sulfide.
  • If skimming is not enough, you may need to vaccum the pollen out of the pool.
  • Run Filtration Pump more than normal to keep surface clear of pollen film and other debris.

Keep your kids and pool safe from pollen!

Your inground swimming pool and home are obviously very important investments, so taking the extra time to keep the pool safe from the damaging effects of pollen will pay off in the long run and allow for an enjoyable start of your swimming season this Spring and Summer.

Don’t let your swimming pool get full of this:

3 Pool Trends You Should Consider in 2017

white pool lighting waterfall

White Waterfall Lighting

Eco Friendly

When you design the eco-friendly pool the right way and maintain it properly you will have a chlorine-free pool with plant zones offering clean and clear water without the toxic chemicals. If you want to heat the pool there are solar panels that can be installed to generate heat and run water features.

 

Fire & Water

This trend incorporates a bit of Feng Shui. The two elements of fire and water brought together in such a unique way creates intrigue and calmness. Adding Underwater Illumination is important but the LED lighting emits a different ambiance then a firepit floating on water.

 

Small Pools

Otherwise known as a dip pool or plunge pool, many of these small pools are meant to fit into a tight space yet offer the therapeutic benefits such as floating, soaking sore muscles and even doing water aerobics. Small pools are trending because they make sense.
