Thank you! - September 01, 2015
Yesterday Pool World wrapped up our annual Splash for Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser! Every year our staff and customers donate generously. 2015 totals are still being calculated but over the previous six years, with your help we’ve raised over $39,000.
The donations that were raised this year will stay right here in our local area at Sacred Heart’s Cystic Fibrosis Center.
Thank you again to all of our very generous staff and customers!
Labor Day Weekend - August 31, 2015
Summer is coming to an end with Labor Day Weekend but it’s not too late to throw a huge barbecue! Invite some friends over to grill on the patio and create a delicious yet simple meal.
Create a delicious brisket on Traeger, a beer can chicken on the Big Green Egg or sear some steaks on a Weber. Make it simple sweet. For more information on the brands of barbecues and grills Pool World carries, please visit our Barbecues/Grills page.
Winter Pool Closing - August 27, 2015
As fall approaches with cooler temperatures, there is still plenty of time to start thinking about winterizing your swimming pool. In our area it’s a necessity to winterize your swimming pool in order to protect it from freeze damage. Making sure to close your swimming pool properly also has the ability to make your spring opening go a lot smoother.
Balance your swimming pool water about 4 to 7 days prior to closing your pool is the highest priority other than blowing out the lines of the pool. The week allowance provides you with plenty of time to make any water chemistry adjustments before closing your pool. Preparing the swimming pool chemistry prior to closing is slightly higher then normal operating levels. Ideal closing chemistry is having your pools ph at 7.6-7.8, pool alkalinity above 125ppm, calcium hardness above 150ppm and then shocking the swimming pool.
If you haven't scheduled your fall pool closing, please call our Service Department at 1 (800) 876-4340 to find out rates and available dates for an appointment in your area.
