With today’s technologies your pool can be safer, easier to maintain and more energy efficient than ever. New innovations like saltwater generation, ultraviolet light with ozone and hybrid backwash-free filtration will actually save you money, save you time and make pool care easier while adding value to your home.
We can even build a new pool inside your pool! There are so many new options are available to you since you originally built your pool.
Saltwater Pools and Ultraviolet Ozone
Saving money on pool care is important, but not as important as safety and comfort for your swimming family! That’s more important than ever!
Having a salt water pool equipped with a salt generator means your pool has the ability to make chlorine from salt. No more buying chlorine or shock! But, the greatest advantage is the ease! The equipment does the measuring and dosing for you. Your pool will be a dream to take care of!
They’re not all the same.
Some salt systems have the electronic control together in the same housing as the flow-cell rather than separately. This means should it go down, you may have to replace BOTH parts costing you a lot more with double the down time!
The Hayward Aqua Rite AQR940 cell produces 25% more chlorine and has a four year warranty. Other brands such as Pentair, 25% less cell life and only a one-year warranty. Clearly a better unit!
Adding an Ultra Violet Ozone (UVO) system with a salt generator can eliminate 99.9% of pathogens including the ones that chlorine do not kill. This means much safer water thats incredibly easier to maintain!
Most major pool renovations take only a few days – not weeks! Tile, coping, decking, the plaster interior surface, equipment and water features can all be updated very quickly.

Common Pool Restoration Questions
Should I replace my pool tile or coping style?
Coping is the brick, concrete, stone, or aluminum material that tops off the wall of the swimming pool. Although coping is designed for durability, it can take a beating. Signs of pool coping damage include loose or “hollow” sounding stones, cracks, and crumbling joints.
If your pool exhibits any of these signs, the damage can grow beyond repair, and may even be hazardous for swimmers. Replacing the pool coping style can enhance the safety of your pool, while preventing potential hazards.
Can I make my pool shallower?
A recent trend among homeowners is to remove diving boards and make the pool shallower toward the diving end. This is often a safe choice, since older pools likely don’t meet today’s modern building diving safety standards.
A depth renovation will depend largely on the material from which the pool is made. However, a typical project will chip out the floor to eliminate or relocate drains, and then compact an aggregate base of crushed rock. From there, the old shell is then connected to the new area by a steel bonded grid. Finally, the pool undergoes complete resurfacing before unveiling the beautiful finished product.
How can I prevent further damage?
A lot of homeowners know that their pool needs work, but don’t know exactly where to start. Depending on the amount of wear affecting your pool, a professional from our company might suggest new concrete, stone, or brick decking to better resist the freeze/thaw environment here in Maryland. For example, stone as opposed to concrete might best serve regions with high levels of humidity, since this material is less porous and therefore less susceptible to damage.
How can I improve the function and style of my pool?
The growth of technology has benefited multiple industries, and the swimming pool industry is one of them. With more efficient filtration systems and automatic cleaning devices, your swimming pool can will require much less maintenance.
