Other Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to upgrade my electrical service to handle the pool equipment?
Possibly — most newer homes have sufficient electrical capacity to handle the electrical load of the pool equipment. If your home is older, the electrical service may need upgrading. We will advise you if it appears your service is not adequate to run the pool equipment.

What are setback and easement requirements?
Setback requirements are rules adopted by each municipality and homeowner association that regulates the minimum distance that structures (such as pools, decks or houses) can be from the edge of your property. The setback requirements adopted by the city or county governing construction in your area will be a major factor in determining how your pool or spa is laid out on your property. Easement rights are rights of access across your property, typically for electric, telephone or other utility lines. There are a variety of rules and regulations regarding your ability to build or locate permanent structures in an easement.

 

What is the difference between a heat pump and a gas heater?
A heat pump runs on electricity. It removes heat from the air and uses it to heat the pool or spa water. A gas heater runs on propane or natural gas. Gas heaters generally provide much more rapid heating of a pool or spa but are more costly to operate than a heat pump..

 

What are automated pool controls?
These systems allow for the operation and control of your pool, spa, water features, lights and pool heating systems from a control panel inside your home or via a remote control device.

 

What size pool pump is best?
There is no standard answer to this question. Your pump configuration (number of pumps and size of pumps) will be governed by: (1) the various types of water features installed on your pool and (2) the water flow necessary for them to operate properly.
