With weather like Arinona's we are fortunate to be able to spend the holidays entertaining outside. Get the most out of your pool for your next gathering. As your pool is not used to swim in these cooler months it sure does bring tranquility during a party. Here are a few tips on how to get your pool ready for the holidays.
1. Never leave your tub filled if you’re not going to maintain the water.
If you are planing on leaving your tub unattended for weeks or even months at a time have Vistancia Pool Care winterize it for you.
2. Don't leave objects on top of your spa cover.
Leaving anything on top of your spa cover can damage it. Heat from the sun can melt the foam.
3.Don't use your spa during extreme weather.
Using your spa during an Arizona monsoon can be deadly. If there is lightning in the area you could get electrocuted. Stay safe and out of the water during this time.
4. Don't use pool chemicals
We will only use chemical s that are designed for your spa because pool chemicals are too concentrated.
5. Over sanitizing your spa water can be harsh on the spa itself
If too much bromine is added to your spa, it can melt the spa cover.
While the rest of the Country have to "winterize" their pools, Arizona residences do not. This is due to Arizona's wonderful temperatures in the winter time. Our temperatures tend to not get below freezing. It is important to keep pH levels, Alkalinity levels, Chlorine levels and weekly maintenance the same as we would during the summer. This will help maintain the surface of your pool and other mechanical parts.

Over the years, Vistancia Pool Care's owner Mike Sullivan has had his fair share of run-ins with rattlesnakes while on the job. Armed with his trusty bucket and grabber stick, he'll come assist you in removing snakes from your property. Just give Vistancia Pool Care a call!
When comparing salt water pools and chlorine pools two things normally come to mind- cost and health.
As salt water pools offer a few perks they also come with some downfalls. Some of the perks of owning a salt water pool are that salt water is easier on your skin. It also requires less maintenance in chemicals and less frequent maintenance visits. These pools cost more to install and use more electricity than a chlorinated pool. Salt water pools can also damage pool features, plants and soil that can become costly to replace.
Chlorine pools are less costly to install initially. These type of pools also cost less in electricity and do not cause damage to your pools features. However, they are harsh on your skin and more expensive as far as maintenance goes.

With Arizona's high temperatures in the summer, the pool water tends to become too hot to enjoy. If you're finding that your pool is not refreshing due to the heat, we have few tips for you to follow.
Combat high temperatures in your swimming pool with the following pointers:
Let your pool get airflow. If your pool is surrounded by tall shrubs or thick trees the airflow is not being able to reach your pools surface.
Keep water moving with water features. Waterfalls and fountains help reduce heat by releasing it and lowering the temperature to your water.
Lose the pool cover. Pool cover help by keeping the debris out of the water but they also trap in heat.
