Your Pool After the Snow

We just got a lot of snow, a bit of ice, and a lot of cold weather, and more is on the way next week!

We all know that Kansas weather is unpredictable and, at times, vicious. And the last few storms have been nothing short of freezing, icy, snowy, and not a lot of fun.

Pool maintenance in the winter and after a snowstorm is different from what you’d do after a rain storm. In this article, we look at what to do with your pool after the snow. (more…)

3 Tips for Extending Your Pool Season

Well, we don’t have to tell you it’s July-hot outside this year! It seems like the warm weather in the Wichita area often seems to last forever.

It’s a great time to swim, and leaving your pool open longer is really inviting. So, why is it that many pool owners only leave their pools open for a few months each season?

Did you know that you can leave your pool open longer for maximum enjoyment?

By leaving it open longer, you can enjoy your pool well into September and sometimes even early October. It gives you and your family a place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate over the weekend!

Let’s look at three tips for extending your pool season. (more…)

Should You Buy a Swimming Pool Now?

The best answer to that depends on a few things. So, should you buy a swimming pool now? Let’s uncover why in this article.

First, the “now” is the end of September, the early part of October. Most people aren’t really thinking about swimming as they look toward pumpkin spice, chili, and all things fall.

However, fall and winter, or the off-season, is often a great time to buy a swimming pool. Whether you’re looking for an inground pool or an above ground pool, you may find this is the best time of year.

Let’s look at a few things to think about as you consider whether or not to buy today.

Demand is Usually Lower

In the spring and summer, everyone wants a pool. During this time of year, demand is often lower, so we can generally install your pool quicker.

You’ll Often Find a Sale

Yes, pool companies usually run a sale on above ground pools and sometimes even inground pools during the fall. It’s always a good idea to ask.

If You’re Ready, Buy Now

We always tell our customers that if they’re ready to buy a pool, they should buy it then.

Don’t wait until next season and get bogged down with wait lists. Don’t wait for prices to go down (in case they don’t). Set a budget and work within in to buy that pool when you are ready!

Our advice: buy a swimming pool when you’re ready. Don’t assume prices will go down next season or that some amazing deal will come along. Instead, use your budget and your desired timeline to determine when to get started on your dream pool.

We can’t predict the cost of above ground pools or inground construction because those prices rise and fall with the markets. The trend has been upward for the last several years, so if you’re ready, it’s a good idea to take the “plunge.”

You’ll find that there really is no wrong time to buy a pool. You may find a “better” time, but you can’t go wrong buying when you’re ready.

Do Your Research

When buying your pool now, make sure you research it and understand all of your many options for both above ground and inground pools. Check out our website, read our blog, contact us, or stop by. We are always here at three locations to answer your questions.

Plan for the Cost

You should buy a pool now if you have the finances ready to do so. There are many costs that go into a swimming pool, so come talk to us so you have a concrete idea. You can use our quote to decide if you can financially afford your pool.

How To Keep Your Pool Cool

Sweltering, sticky, sweaty – these are just a few of the words that describe the weather in Wichita and the surrounding area. We bet you can’t wait to “beat the heat” by taking a dip in your swimming pool. But, what if your pool isn’t cool?

While bombarding your pool with large blocks of ice may reduce the temperature, it certainly is cost prohibitive and only temporary.

In this article, we look at how to keep your pool cool.


How to Shock Your Swimming Pool
