Why chose AGP Company for your above ground pool?

The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company

The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company

Just one example of what a above ground pool dealer can do for you in the future: Find replacement parts. Recently, a customer who purchased a “used” pool contacted us looking for parts. The Above Ground Pool Company had sold the pool to the original owner over 14 years ago. The new owner was thrilled to hear we still had the parts he needed. We can not promise to always be able to find the parts you need, but most  dealers do not even offer to find parts for pools they sold last year. The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company sells and installs high quality above ground pools.

So why do hot tub covers get so heavy over time?

AGP Company , San Antonio, Tx

AGP Company , San Antonio, Tx

The simple answer is that the hot tub cover foam core becomes waterlogged over time. This water soaks the core and is what is responsible for most of the weight.
When this happens, you hot tub cover will become very heavy and your cover will no longer be as effective at protecting your hot tub from the elements.
There are two main causes of a water logged foam core:
1. Poor Water Chemistry – If your water chemistry is not balanced properly it can become very corrosive. Over time this corrosiveness will disintegrate the vapor barrier around the foam cores allowing water to pass to the core soaking it over time.
2. Broken Cover – If there is a crack in your cover, water can enter the cover causing the foam core to become completely saturated over time. The foam core itself can also become broken if someone sits on the cover often penetrating the vapor barrier as well allowing water to enter the cover soaking the core.
While you can just ignore the problem and keep using the cover, a heavy cover that has been saturated from water will not protect your hot tub properly and will drastically impact the cost of running your hot tub. If you find your cover is getting heavy, it is best to address the problem right away.

Water level in above ground pool

The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company

Why is it important to keep a proper water level in your above ground pool? The majority of dirt and debris that enters the pool is airborne. It rides on the surface of the water for longer than you think. Dust can float on the surface of your pool for 15 minutes. Keeping the water level below the “skimmer ” opening allows the filter to capture surface water that is carrying this debris.
Allowing the water level to get too low causes your pump to “suck” air, making it less efficient. So, look at the faceplate on your above ground pool skimmer, the proper water level will help make your filtration more effective.

Yes, it is time for the live oaks to start covering the surface of your above ground poo0lo with leaves. While the filter is running this can clog your skimmer quickly. Make sure to check the basket in your skimmer at least daily. If the skimmer on your above ground pool gets too clogged it can starve the pump of water and due damage to your pool filter equipment. The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company has products can divert some of the leaves away from the skimmer.

San Antonio Swim Spa Dealer

SWIMSPA 08182012 005Did you know that swim spas are a great alternative to a traditional in-ground pool? Swim spas can be installed just about anywhere, are much more budget friendly than an in-ground pool and can be enjoyed year round. These mini pools have jets which can recreate a current which allows you to swim in place or simply soothe your body with the relaxing jets. Swimming is an effective low impact exercise, which is good for cardiovascular health. Working out in water causes less strain on the joints and muscles, making it ideal for recovery from injuries or illnesses.

Are you a water lover? The helpful staff at The Above Ground Pool & Spa Company have a great selection of hot tubs and swim spas choose from. Some benefits of hydrotherapy include increased range of motion, flexibility, improved coordination, posture and balance. And let’s not forget that soaking in your brand new hot tub or swim spa is pretty relaxing and fun!

When you’re looking for swim spa consider the following features: the pump design, the jet system and the shell design. The pump is important because it provides the power. The jet system is important because it controls the current in the water and the shell is important because the shape will dictate how it is used. For example, if you prefer to use it for swimming or training then you wouldn’t want a shell that has seats or benches. Find out more by chatting with one of our experienced staff soon.
