We will come on the same day each week unless an illness or a holiday requires us to reschedule, and an email will be sent to announce holiday schedule changes.

Let's talk about some key aspects of pool maintenance in the lower keys that ensure a clean and inviting swimming experience for you and your guests!

First up, pool water. It's crucial to keep your pool water pristine, as it directly interacts with your skin and that of others. Nobody wants a pool full of debris and gross contaminants! We'll make sure your pool water remains free from unwanted substances, leaving it fresh and enjoyable.

Next, let's discuss the pool interior. When your pool interior isn't looking its best, it affects the overall appeal of your entire pool. We understand the frustration of dealing with stubborn algae growth and unsightly stains. That's where our expertise comes in! Our team will keep your water balanced to help prevent any staining or calcium buildup.

Now, let's focus on the pool filtration system. We can't stress enough how important this component is. It's the heart of your pool system, responsible for trapping those unwanted contaminants and particles. To keep your filtration system in top shape, we recommend running the pump for around 8-12 hours daily. If your filter needs repair or replacement, we've got you covered!

Don't forget about the filter element—it needs some TLC too. Backwashing is a simple yet effective way to keep it clean. Essentially, it involves reversing the water flow through the element and flushing out any accumulated dirt or debris. Just follow the instructions provided by your filter manufacturer for the backwashing schedule.

Proper pool circulation is key to preventing issues we've mentioned earlier. Running the pump consistently ensures better distribution of chemicals throughout your pool's system, keeping everything in balance. If you notice any pump-related problems, we offer a range of pump repair and replacement services. Together with your filtration system, the pump keeps your pool looking its best.

Lastly, let's touch on the pool skimmer and return. These two play different roles but are equally vital for your pool's health. The pool skimmer acts as a cleaning tool, pulling water into the filter for effective cleaning. On the other hand, the return pushes clean, filtered water back into the pool, ensuring proper circulation and hygiene.

So, whether it's maintaining clean pool water, rejuvenating your pool's interior, optimizing filtration, or addressing pump issues, we're here to provide expert solutions that keep your pool in top-notch condition. Dive in and enjoy a worry-free swimming experience!


Let's go through some essential pool maintenance tools and techniques:

Net Skimmer: Grab your trusty net skimmer to effortlessly remove debris from your pool water. It's the perfect tool for quickly skimming away leaves, bugs, and any other unwanted items floating around.

Pool Brush: Keep your pool walls sparkling clean by giving them a gentle scrub with a reliable wall brush. Don't forget about your tiles too! Give them some extra attention with a thorough tile cleaning to restore their original shine and eliminate any stubborn scale or calcium buildup that may have accumulated over the years.

Pool Vacuum: Whether you opt for an automatic or manual vacuum, it's important to give your entire pool a good vacuuming session. Pay special attention to areas with limited circulation, as they tend to be hotspots for pesky algae growth. Make sure every nook and cranny gets the attention it deserves!

Cleaner Options: If you find that your pool gets dirty soon after a cleaning, it might be worth considering a suction-side or pressure-side cleaner. These nifty devices can help maintain a cleaner pool for a longer period, saving you time and effort in the long run.

Remember, a well-maintained pool not only looks more inviting but also provides a safer and more enjoyable swimming experience for everyone. So, grab your skimmer, brush, and vacuum, and let's keep that pool in tip-top shape!


When it comes to pool cleaning in the lower keys, the water testing kit for your pool's chemistry takes center stage as the most crucial component. Your swimming pool's chemistry consists of three essential parts:

PH Level: It's important to keep an eye on the pH levels of your pool water, which indicates its acidity or alkalinity. Ideally, you want to aim for a pH level between 7.4 and 7.6. Maintaining this range ensures a comfortable and balanced swimming environment.

Alkalinity: The alkalinity of your pool water acts as a buffer, preventing it from becoming too acidic or too basic. You should aim for an alkalinity range of 100 to 120 parts per million (ppm). This helps to stabilize the pH level and keeps your pool water in optimal condition.

Sanitizer Levels: The amount of sanitizer, such as chlorine or bromine, needed in your pool will depend on the specific type of sanitizer you use. It's crucial to regularly monitor and maintain the appropriate sanitizer levels to keep the water clean, safe, and free from harmful bacteria.

Before adding any chemicals, it's essential to consider the factors mentioned above. Imbalanced pool chemistry can be felt by swimmers, affecting their comfort. Frequent and accurate water testing will ensure that your pool water stays clean and inviting.

Always follow the instructions provided on the chemical labels for proper usage

Remember, maintaining the right balance in your pool's chemistry is key to enjoying a refreshing and safe swimming experience.
