Pool Season is almost here and Aqua Pros Annual Pool Chemical Sale is Going on now through April 15th!  Save 10% on your season's chemicals through April 15th!  The really great thing is that when you open, Aqua Pros extends the same discount to all your pool chemical needs at your opening.  If you only need balancers then get 10% off balancers.  If your pool's a swamp, get 10% off everything to clear it up.  Either way, you win with this "pool opening insurance"

Mid-Winter Pool Treatment: Stop into your nearest Aqua Pros and get a mid-winter pool treatment.  Its been an unseasonably warm winter and you don’t want to open to a swamp.  We suggest treating your pool with a shock and algae treatment immediately to help prevent opening to a bad surprise.

Sand Filters: Filter sand should be changed every 3-5 years (annually on a Biguanide pool). 
SAVE $50 on a sand change at opening.  Only $95 labor for a residential sand change when ordered with an opening.  Regular price $145! 
is a great alternative to sand on chlorinated pools.  Talk to one of our associates for details to see if Zeobrite is right for your sand filter.

Switch to a Cartridge Filter: Cartridge filters are a great method of filtration and we at Aqua Pros think they do such a great job, we start all our new pools out with a Cartridge filter.  Here's why: Cartridge filters have as much as twice the flow rate as a sand filter and filter particles more than half the size a sand filter captures.  Cartridge filters have as much as 3 Times the Flow Rate of conventional sand filters and can save you on your operating costs.  Cartridge filters have no moving parts to wear out, no laterals to break, and never get backwashed.   Backwashing a sand filter dumps as much as 200-300 gallons from a residential pool each time.  There's no backwashing a cartridge filter.  Cartridge filters simply get rinsed off when they get dirty and need cleaning, unless they get unusual amounts of oil in them in which case, they'd need a degrease treatment. 
When to Replace Cartridge Filters: If your cartridge filter is over two years old, and/or the element is not still white in appearance, its probably in need of replacing.  If it was not cleaned last fall, degrease with Strip Kwik and Klean It.  Always have an extra cartridge (or set) on hand for when you clean it/them.  Cartridge filters must be allowed to dry after they’ve been chemically cleaned.         

D.E. Filters: Always degrease any filter before cleaning scale or any mineral deposits.

Pump Replacement
If your swimming pool’s pump is in need of replacement this spring, ask the Aqua Pros experts about a Pentair Variable Speed Pump.  Variable speed pumps save you significantly on operating your swimming pool by running at lower speeds throughout the day or night, when the pool is not in use, saving you money.  The Pentair SuperFlo VS or the Intelliflow VS are 2 variable speed pumps designed to save money on pool operation. 

Liner Replacement or Pool Resurfacing/Replastering
Aqua Pros is holding prices on new liners!  Save now by ordering new liners at last season’s prices. 
If you're pool's vinyl liner is 10 years old or more, its time to consider changing it.  Take advantage of special spring offers and upgrades before they expire.  Order a new liner or pool resurfacing and get 10% off new pool equipment including: Saltwater pool systems, including BioGuard Mineral Springs Systems, Pentair Pumps, Filters, Heaters and Heat pumps.  We’ll also open your pool at no additional charge while we’re there.  Get details when you order.

Salt Water Systems: If you've considered a Salt Water system, at liner change is the ideal time to do it!  

IMPORTANT BULLETIN REGARDING SALT SYSTEMS AND ELECTROLYSIS:  To prevent damage to any metals in contact with the pool water in a salt water pool, such as heaters, we recomend installing a sacrificial Zinc Anode. 

10% OFF Automatic Pool Cleaners!
The Dolphin M-4 robotic cleaner is getting rave reviews from owners because it saves time and money.  Save time when the cleaner is vacuuming and sweeping your pool for you.  Save money because our robotic cleaners not only scrub your pool surface, the debris they vacuum is captured inside their internal filter, instead of your pool filter, which would then have to be backwashed or cleaned.  Getting debris out of your pool and filter saves chemicals, saves money.   Because of the many benefits of the Dolphin M-4, you can actually reduce pump operating time by using it to its full advantage. 

Save 10% OFF any pool cleaner with the purchase of your season's chemicals. 

Aqua Pros 21 Point Opening Checklist is our guarantee that your pool will be opened in the most professional manner possible.  Bob Davis found 21 points in a pool opening that must be addressed for a pool to be properly opened.
