Resolution Season Is A Good Time To Plan For A Better Pool


The start of a new year is typically a time for Resolution. The thought of greeting a new year often presents us with unlimited possibilities. Feeling greater enthusiasm?  How about increased optimism?  If you’re hoping for better things this year, let Monarch Pool Care help you achieve your goals, especially as they relate to your pool and the upcoming swim season.  Read along to find great ways to better your swim experience this season with Monarch Pool Care’s help.

Proper Seasonal Maintenance

We all love to swim.  That’s no secret.  Swimming is excellent for your health and a great way to socialize with family and friends in a fun environment.  But let’s face it, if you’re a pool owner you know that there’s a lot of work that goes into keeping that little oasis in the backyard running smoothly and looking crystal clear and safe.  Don’t have the time?  Or maybe you’re new to pool ownership and unsure what to do.  Monarch to the rescue!  Our service packages take the burden of maintaining the pool off your shoulders so all you have to do is relax and enjoy!  Our full maintenance packages include pre-booked appointments, seasonal opening and closing, weekly maintenance with chemicals, electronic reports delivered to your e-mail after each visit, in-store discounts, prioritized service and more.

The importance of your Pool Filter

Did you know that your pool’s filter is as important to your pool’s cleanliness as the sanitizer you use?  It’s true!  Filters remove dirt, organics, and impurities from the water.  In the process, this helps your sanitizer work more effectively and keeps your pool water clear and swimmable.  Regardless of the type of filter you use, regular maintenance is key to its proper operation.  DE and Cartridge filters need to have their internal grid or cartridge elements cleaned and inspected throughout the swim season.  And while sand filters use a media that’s longer lasting, that media needs to be removed and replaced at least once every three years.  Monarch inspects DE grids and filter cartridges both at opening and closing to ensure that your filter is operating optimally.  Your DE filter should also be disassembled and cleaned thoroughly mid-season (July).  If you have a sand filter and have not had the media replaced in the past three years, call us today to schedule this service in time for your spring opening.  Because we offer discounted winter labor rates, now is a great time to take advantage of this service to prepare yourself and your pool for the upcoming swim season.

Upgrade your Pool Pump for Energy & Cost Savings

Did you know that your pool pump can be the second most costly item to run in the summer months – just below your air conditioner?  Many people try to offset this cost by reducing the run time of their pump and in turn, their filter.  Unfortunately, many times these reduced filter cycles leave the pool water “dingy” looking and, water that is not circulating can develop “dead spots” that encourage algae bloom.

An alternative to this potentially problematic situation is to upgrade your single speed pump to a new variable speed unit.  Variable speed pumps utilize a permanent magnet brushless DC motor that is quieter, more energy efficient, and cooler running for extended motor life.  Many homeowners who invest in this upgrade realize up to a 90% cost savings per season with a return on their investment in less than two seasons!  Another plus, most variable speed models come with a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty vs. the standard 1-year warranty seen with single speed models.  Ask Monarch today about available variable speed pump options.  We’ll help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

Clear Comfort – New Chlorine-Free Sanitizer for the New Year – an Alternative to Salt, UV and Ozone

Using a process inspired by nature, Clear Comfort’s chlorine-free pool system offers superior water treatment beyond salt, ozone, and UV.  Enjoy healthy, clear, fresh-feeling water with your Clear Comfort pool.  Clear Comfort’s technology produces powerful hydroxyl radicals that destroy contaminants on contact and eliminate the harmful disinfection byproducts created during chlorine sanitation.

Salt systems generate chlorine, while ozone and UV pool systems require normal levels of chlorine for residual sanitation.  With Clear Comfort you can reduce your chlorine level to what is right for you.  With Clear Comfort, you’ll notice the soft feeling of clean, clear water and the revitalizing difference on your skin, eyes and hair.  With the elimination of disinfection byproducts, you’ll be able to breathe deeply without the heavy scent of chlorine.
