7 Mistakes that smart people make


SWIMMING POOL CHEMICALS, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

Hot tub chemicals are required to maintain the most advantageous working order of your hot tub, much in the same way of chemicals in a pool.  Since the amount of water is smaller, hot tub chemicals are even more essential.  Keeping your tub clean and making certain it is all set for use when you ready to use it requires proper chemical maintenance. 


SWIMMING POOL VACUUMS, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

Pools and spas are great additions to your backyard offering many hours of fun and relaxation with family and friends.  As with most expensive, luxury purchases, routine maintenance is required so that they will function properly and germ-free.  Occasional clean-up is necessary to remove dirt and debris that has entered the pool.


SWIMMING POOL FENCES, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

The main reason to install a swimming pool fence is safety, the safety of small children.  It only takes a moment for that precious little child to slip into the pool that is unguarded by a fence.  And only 5 minutes under the water can cause brain damage and even death.  Swimming pool fences are an important child safety feature that you can install.


WHEN TO OPEN YOUR SWIMMING POOL? INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER TULSA, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

The widely accepted belief suggests that you open your inground pool about two weeks before you expect to use it; this of course assumes that temperatures are such that your water will not freeze.

Working up a good sweat is healthy for you!  A sauna is an excellent way to do just that.  A conventional sauna can have a pretty hefty price tag.  But now there is a cheaper alternative, a portable sauna.  You get all the health benefits of the conventional sauna but without paying thousands of dollars toward the cost of installation and maintenance.  A portable sauna runs a few hundred dollars.


SWIMMING POOL PUMPS, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

Pool pumps serve to keep the water fresh, healthy, and chemically correct.  They keep water moving, circulating the water to preserve chemical continuity, keeping the chemicals distributed and preventing stagnancy.


SWIMMING POOL TIPS, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

Above-ground pool or in-ground pool?  That is your first decision.  The average cost of an in-ground pool is considerably higher.  And it depends on the construction material.  A vinyl-lined in-ground pool will cost twice as much.  A fiberglass pool runs four times as much.  A concrete pool can top six times as much as a typical above-ground pool installation.  If your in-ground concrete pool is of high quality, it will likely increase your home's value.  A basic above-ground pool will not add significant value to your home.


SWIMMING POOL REPAIR, INGROUND SWIMMING POOL BUILDER, BY MIKE FOURNIER, One Of Tulsa's Leading Swimming Pool Contractors

Examples of swimming pool repair issues are cracks in the pool walls, tears in the lining, defective or cheap filter and pump systems.  These repairs are best accomplished by a professional. And they can be quite expensive. Sometimes these issues necessitate replacement of a component instead of repair.
