I am happy to say Spring is on the way. As you shop around for your swimming pool ask all the companies you are looking at what material they use to backfill your install. We have found through the years we have been in the pool business, that stone is the best. Question the use of stone dust, sand or the dirt that came from the excavation as these materials do not allow for a good install. The correct type of stone stays in place and allows for constant drainage. Call me for more information.
Our hours this season:
Monday and Tuesday 11 am -3pm. Closed on Wednesday. Thursday through Saturday 1pm – 4pm. We make appointments for your convenience and return all calls. Be sure to leave a message. Diane
Another season is winding down. The pool office is open Tuesday 11am-4pm. Wednesday 11am-2pm, Thursday and Friday 11am-5pm. Always leave a message at 1-877-993-7727 or 518-993-5151 and your call will be returned. Appointments will still be made, we can install your pool until the frost is in the ground.
It looks like the word for this season is ENZYME. A great and safe way to get rid of buildup caused by lotions, oils and other common pool water contaminants. Fight scum line build up and cloudy water with Super Pacs by Jack’s Magic.
Just one packet treats up to 20,000 gallons of water for 2 weeks. You just put the packet in the skimmer basket and enjoy nice clean water.
Enzymes are natural proteins and can work while you swim. They should be added at least 6 hours after super chlorinating or shocking the pool at opening. Heavy doses of chlorine reduce enzyme effectiveness. Help stop oils building up in your filter so you backwash less.

We will be closed Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. Enjoy the holiday.
Happy Spring – I have new hours for this season:
Tuesday 11 am – 4pm

As you shop around for your swimming pool keep in mind that in addition to getting a quality pool the method of installation, in particular the backfill material, is of utmost importance.
There is never an instance when backfill material is not needed. Using sand, stone dust or the dirt from the dug hole is never the correct backfill material.
The best material is jagged gravel, it locks together and allows for drainage. Gravel will not wash away leaving your pool without the very necessary support of the backfill. Sand, stone dust and dirt will wash away with ground water and you end up with hollow spots under your pool floor, which in turn can cause cracks.
