Pool Chemicals

Pool chemical safety is the responsibility of backyard pool owners, professional pool service providers, and community pool managers. If you’re reading this you’re likely a backyard pool owner, perhaps you’ve purchased or are thinking of buying your pool from the number one Omaha pool company – Phoenix Pools. We proudly offer the industry-leading E-Z Pool water care program. If you have a pool or are thinking of getting one, you’re going to need to learn something about pool chemical safety.

Why Chemicals?

Pools can be compared to communal bathtubs. Although they’re a lot more than that, and nobody is using shampoo and soap, the bottom line is oils, dirt, and bacteria that is on people get washed off and mixed in pool water. Chemicals are necessary to help maintain pool water quality. Their role is especially warranted when people ignore the advice to shower before entering the pool – which seems to be most of the time. Each person who enters a pool without showering first brings with them about 0.14 grams of fecal matter. We know it’s gross, but aside from that, it’s dangerous. 

Pool chemicals destroy pathogens that could be ingested by swallowing even small amounts of water. Other chemicals are used to control the pH of the water, which maximizes the effectiveness of the disinfectants. Chlorine-based chemicals, the most popular, do a fantastic job at destroying a wide range of pathogens in pool water.

E-Z Pool Water Treatment

E-Z Pool is a once a week application that keeps your pool water safe and clean. It’s a unique blended multi-tasking formula that eliminates the confusion of adding multiple chemicals every other day. E-Z Pool is the ultimate swimming pool water care program because of the packaged benefits that include:  

  • A stable oxidizer that immediately breaks down contaminants in the water to increase sanitation results. 
  • An algae shield formula that becomes increasingly effective the longer E-Z Pool is used. 
  • E-Z Pool inhibits scale build-up and metallic staining on your pool’s surface and equipment.
  • No harsh chemical residue on hair, skin, or bathing suits.   
  • Reduces the need for excessive testing and chemical additions.

Ready for a Consistently Clean Pool?

E-Z Pool eliminates all the headaches of traditional water maintenance programs that require a multitude of chemicals. The problem with those programs is they are based on a reactive rather than preventive model. They rely on waiting until there’s a problem then treating it. E-Z Pool is proactive, meaning it prevents water problems from ever occurring and the dangers associated with them.

Planning Ahead for Inground Pools

It may seem like an inappropriate time of year to talk about inground pools. But, just in case you’re considering giving your family an inground pool for the holidays – let’s talk about planning ahead for the summer months.

Planning and building a swimming pool isn’t something you should do on a whim. It’s a big-time investment that can both dramatically alter your landscape and lifestyle. Starting the discussion with our Omaha pool company in the spring won’t get you swimming by Memorial Day. So, consider the following:

  • If your space is suited for a pool – Is there enough room? Are you willing to give up a large portion of your yard?
  • Zoning restrictions
  • Budget
  • Time management for pool maintenance
  • Safety
  • Insurance

Figuring out the logistics and finding a trusted Omaha pool company to plan and install an inground pool takes some thought. Meeting with our inground pool experts can help kickstart ideas, or even assist in deciding if an inground pool is right for your family.

The planning and installation of an inground pool should be trusted to a professional with a large portfolio. Our Omaha pool company has planning and installed pools across the Omaha-metro, and we are marked by quality work and excellent customer service.
