Servicing the Phoenix, East Valley..
Operating as usual
Crystal Oasis Pools is committed to continuing service through these challenging times.
Proper sanitization will keep bodies of water safe for our community. As children and families across the country are being asked to shelter at home, providing the means for properly sanitized home pool environments is critical to helping maintain community health.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), COVID-19 [cdc.gov] cannot survive in properly treated pool and hot tub water.
Untreated water can promote many other types of bacteria (Pseudomonas, Cryptosporidium, E. Coli, Shigella etc.).
The World Health Organization (WHO) [who.int] states that controlling water quality is necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.
For these reasons and unless otherwise instructed by a particular jurisdiction, Crystal Oasis Pools will remain open throughout this crisis to ensure proper water chemistry of your swimming pool!

Another green pool, another opportunity to make a new customer happy! This pool turned green shortly before the new owner purchased the home. Guess the previous owner decided not to maintain the pool for them prior to closing.
We came in and treated the water, cleaned the DE filter and within 24 hours, this pool was back to normal operation and looking great! And with our weekly maintenance expertise, the new owner will be enjoying their pool throughout the rest of the summer and for many years to come!

If you have ever hired a service company you may have realized you get what you pay for. A swimming pool service is no different. Lately I have come in contact with several potential clients who value monthly costs more than quality of service. I’m the latter.
You can hire a pool cleaner, or you can hire a pool maintenance company. A pool cleaner does just that. They come in, drop some chemicals and maybe skim some leaves or empty baskets. Out of your yard in 5 minutes or less. But hey, you are only paying $85 a month which includes chemicals. You struggle with algae issues all summer long, your pump burns out often and you have filter problems which all leads to higher yearly costs.
Or you can hire a pool MAINTENANCE company. A pool maintenance company not only cleans your pool, but we also maintain your water chemistry, your pool equipment, the above ground PVC, heater, salt water system, pool surface and even your pool deck. We go above and beyond cleaning in order to cut down on costly repairs which believe it or not, have a lot to do with the cheap companies who do not understand the intricacies of water chemistry and how it affects your investment.
So if monthly fees are most important, go ahead and hire a pool cleaner. If you value quality and knowledge of the industry, give us a call.
If your pool is looking festive on this St. Patrick’s Day, give us a call. 🍀
Until then, have a safe and enjoyable holiday!

Tearing out a sand filter and installing a much more efficient, cartridge filter. I tend to work a bit faster when the temperatures reach triple digits! Lol!
Sand filters are the least efficient filters on the market. During the summer monsoon storms, your pool may develop algae or turn green from all the dust and debris. Switching to a cartridge or DE filter will improve your water clarity and add to your enjoyment of your pool!
Call us today for a free estimate and say goodbye to that green, cloudy pool water forever!
Installing a heater when it's 117? You bet! Winter is right around the corner...and down the block a bit but it will arrive eventually!

Have a great weekend everyone!
It's the start of another beautiful day here in the valley! Watch your kids around water and remember to ALWAYS close your pool gate!
The summer swim season is upon us and it's time for a few helpful hints geared towards improving your pool's appearance and performance.
A pool vacuum is a great way to clean the dirt and leaves from the bottom of your pool. However, they can be a nuisance and tend to get in the way while you are trying to swim. If you take your vacuum out of the pool, be sure to lay the hose in a straight line on the deck or nearby gravel. Coiling or laying the hose in a heap will damage it and limit the vacuum's ability to move freely around the entire pool. The sun will bake the hose in whatever shape you lay it in and the straighter, the better!
Disconnect the vacuum from the hose and lay the hose out as straight as possible. If your hose is already damaged from coiling, it may be necessary to lay something slightly weighted on each end to remedy the curved hoses. It only takes a short time in the sun to correct the problem. Always put your vacuum back in the water after you are finished swimming.
Just a helpful hint to keep your pool looking great from Crystal Oasis Pools!
Summer is right around the corner and it's time for some water safety tips. As always, please watch your children around water and always close your pool gates!
I see this one quite often. Netted fencing is a great, inexpensive way to secure your pool. However, when the fencing is left like it is in the first photo, pets and even young children can get their necks caught in the "V" shaped opening, and cut off blood flow to the brain causing possible injury or death.
Always latch the fence at the top after use as shown in the second photo. Promote child and pet safety and enjoy the summer swim season!
Is your pool deck in need of a facelift? We can help! Summer is right around the corner so now is the time to add some color to your faded and sun damaged deck surface! We offer a variety of paint colors to choose from which will make your deck look new again. Impress your friends and family this summer with your beautiful backyard oasis!

This is just too good not to share. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
I am a happy guy anytime I can remove an inefficient sand filter and replace it with a D.E., or in this case, cartridge filter! Why the change?
A sand filter will filter particles down to 40 microns, and require back-washing somewhat regularly
A D.E. filter will filter down to 5 microns, and require back-washing (less often than sand)
A cartridge filter will filter down to 10 microns and cartridges are cleaned manually (no backwashing)
This customer was tired of fighting algae after dust storms and was not happy with the water clarity. A D.E. or cartridge filter is far superior and in the event of the pool turning green, they can clear the water up in a matter of hours vs. weeks with a sand filter!

TIPS ON SURVIVING MONSOON SEASON!
Last night's monsoon storm brought wind, lightning and rain to the East Valley. If you have a swimming pool, the next few weeks could prove costly and at the very least, disrupt the enjoyment of your pool. Here are just a few tips to help keep your pool looking it's best and in working order.
1. Empty your skimmer and pump basket daily! Very important!!
2. Remove large branches and palm leaves immediately.
3. Be sure your pool vacuum is moving and not clogged with leaves or rocks.
4. Confirm your pump is still operational.
5. Contact us if you are having trouble with any of the above procedures
Lightning can sometimes short out your pool pump. If this is the case, please call us immediately so we can get your pool back up and running. In this heat, it only takes a matter of days before your pool turns green if your pump is burned out.

Torn filter elements in a Diatomaceous Earth (DE) filter. When adding DE powder to the skimmer after backwashing, the powder was blown back to the pool from the return lines. This indicates torn filter elements or possibly a damaged manifold. This must be repaired in order for the water to filter correctly and keep your pool from looking cloudy and algae free!
The only way to fully inspect each element is to take the base apart completely. The picture shows what a torn element looks like. While age of the elements can eventually attribute to damage, most problems I see from homeowners is due to infrequent backwashing or lack of cleaning. Yearly and even bi-yearly cleaning will not only improve your swim experience but also extend the life of your filter parts.

Do you have a bee problem? Bees sometimes take up residence in pools where the hive is somewhere close by. They carry the water back to the hive but obviously, this is a nuisance to your swim experience.
Not sure you can see the swarm in this video but there are literally hundreds of bees. How do you get rid of them you ask? Simple, by adding a product called "Skill-It"! Produced by Bio-Dex, this product is a great algaecide which contains ammonia. Bees dislike ammonia and used monthly during the hotter months, not only will this product cut back on algae growth, but it will also keep bees away from your pool.
Just another helpful tip from Crystal Oasis Pools!
