Pool Planning Season Starts NOW to Beat the Heat for This Summer!

Presidential Pools and Spas Offers Practical Tips for Creating Your Own Backyard Oasis

Has thinking about this summer’s sweltering weather had you thinking about installing a new aquatic oasis in your backyard? Don’t hesitate because now is pool-planning season. Start your planning now and beat this year’s heat with an affordable, energy-efficient environment for connecting with family and friends.

Presidential Pools and Spas recommends these five tips for starting the pool-planning process:
1. Ask yourself – and those most important to you – what you’d enjoy out of having a pool and spa.

• Your pool is an extension of the most popular living areas of your home. Think not just about a pool, but an environment that will meet your needs, suits your lifestyle, and will bring you the most joy when you’re slipping into the water.

2. Consider affordability.

Pools can be surprisingly affordable. Your individual costs will depend on such considerations as size, spa or other water features, screen or landscaped enclosures, heater (gas, electric or solar) and deck or patio design. As you advance in planning, you’ll also review the quality of workmanship and design, underground strength, ease of maintenance, warranty, and service.

3. Think about how the ideal pool type will meet your needs, budget, and setting.

What size and shape will fit your surroundings? From there, you’ll start to think about what materials will work and how the purchase and installation fit with your budget.

4. Consider equipment and other options.

Will you want fresh water, salt water, or another medium? Should your pool be heated? What kind of equipment will keep the water sparkling and energy needs low? A good pump is essential, so ask about energy efficiency, capacity, quiet operation, warranty, and, of course, price.

5. Where should your pool go?

There’s a size, shape, and type of pool for almost any environment. From landscaping to lavish decking, from outdoor kitchens and fireplaces to cascading waterfalls, there are countless – and affordable – ways to make your pool an inviting addition to your home.

Presidential Pools Building the Best Aquatic Centers in Phoenix

Below is an excerpt from

“What a revolutionary concept — to have a fitness center dedicated to people with disabilities.

The Virginia G. Piper Sports and Fitness Center for Persons with Disabilities is to be distinguished from hospitals and therapy centers. There are plenty of those, and their value goes without saying. But this Phoenix facility is a gym for people with disabilities who want to work out for fitness, athletic training or any of myriad reasons in addition to therapy.

Called SpoFit, the fitness center is only the second in the country dedicated to serving those with disabilities and their families, with the purpose of making life as easy as possible. It was named by the local Phoenix New Times as the “Best Gym for Everyone” for 2013.

In many gyms, those who need more space for wheelchairs or just steadying themselves can find the equipment packed pretty tightly. And while pools and spas must have accessibility equipment to comply with federal law, sometimes staff members aren’t as comfortable working with this population. “I think this just gives a new level of comfort,” says Brienne McDowell, SpoFit’s membership coordinator.

It is used by a wide range of clients, from those just looking to maintain their health to residents of assisted living facilities to aspiring Paralympians. The center serves about 1,500 individuals — approximately 500 with monthly or annual memberships, another 500 with punch passes committing them to 12 visits in a year, and the rest visiting from adult assisted living facilities, day programs and schools.

The aquatics facility within the center is built to accommodate this wide range. It includes a hot tub, therapy pool and lap pool. Each pool has a lift, and the lap pool has a transfer bench with shallow steps connected to it so users can easily enter and exit.

Both pools are equipped with an elevator lift that lowers users approximately 3 feet from deck level to pool floor. Those who need it can use a plastic wheelchair designed for the water. The elevator essentially replaces a ramp or zero-depth entry, which require substantial pool area to gradually slope down to the floor. This way, more space is devoted to classes and swimming.

The therapy pool is kept at 88- to 92 degrees and has underwater handlebars to make aerobics easier.

Currently, the aquatics center offers six classes, ranging from those aimed at arthritis sufferers to water walking to variations on tai chi and yoga.

Accommodating family members makes going to the gym more convenient since the hardest part of any exercise program is just showing up. “If it becomes, ‘My husband’s going to this gym but I’m going to that gym,’ it gets less likely that either will have success,” McDowell says. “We’re doing our best to break down barriers or speed bumps.”

The center also offers free memberships to veterans who suffered physical or psychological/emotional injuries while serving. A program coordinated with the Wounded Warrior Project also includes free personal-training sessions each month for its members. The center is able to accomplish this through grant funding.

The aquatic classes have a diverse range of students, and staff must be able to tailor the instruction to meet many needs. Some employees have parks and recreation degrees or other backgrounds appropriate for a fitness center, but few specialized in serving those with disabilities. To respond to clients’ needs, these employees have been trained in a variety of areas pertaining to the disabled community.

To that end, local veterans’ organizations offer presentations about what it’s like to have suffered both physical and psychological injuries. A recent session dispelled some of the myths about post traumatic stress disorder. “I think through television and movies we have these overly dramatic ideas of what PTSD is,” McDowell says. “But it’s not always that dramatic and big. People respond to issues in a lot of different ways. So we learned how we can assist and different ways to step in when needed.”

But one of the most important lessons has been to treat those with disabilities just like anyone else. “I think there’s this belief that you have to give more assistance to someone if they have a disability,” McDowell says. “But do I want to suddenly be bombarded by people trying to offer me advice and help me when I just want to have a quiet swim? Say hello, see if I need anything, but other than that, I’ll go about doing my workout.”

Team up to Giveback!

The Ronald McDonald House in Phoenix creates a home away from home atmosphere for families who are dealing children that are hospitalized or undergoing procedures. Their facilities have been a comfort zone for those kids and their families for many years. Recently the Arizona Diamondback’s Give Back League organized a complete renovation of the playground at the facility. Some popular names like Miguel Montero (Diamondbacks Catcher) and Derrick Hall (CEO) just to name a few were in attendance during a special dedication and ribbon cutting. Presidential Pools and Spas along with the help of Flo Patio Landscaping and US Grass and Greens of Phoenix were able to add beautiful new landscaping and also much needed furniture for enjoying Arizona’s amazing weather.

The Arizona Diamondbacks released a statement from Montero stating:

“This means a lot and it’s just a great feeling to see these kids smiling and having a great time,” said Montero, who was joined by his wife, mother and mother-in-law at the ribbon cutting ceremony. “I’ve been blessed and I want to help others. I’ve been here a few times in the past and to see what the Diamondbacks did and all the work that the D-backs employees put into this, it’s amazing.”
Using a $50,000 financial contribution from Montero and the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation, a group of D-backs employees from the D-backs Give Back League undertook the renovations of the playground, which is modeled after Chase Field. It features a baseball diamond with a replica of Montero at home plate and the walls are padded just like the outfield at Chase Field. The project also included new lighting, fans, a mister system, grilling area, patio furniture and landscaping.

Thank you to the Diamondbacks and all those who participated in making this project so great!

Monsoon Tips from Presidential Pools and Spas

Arizona has some of the most volatile monsoon seasons. These storms bring in blinding dust, tornado worthy wind gusts, relentless lightning shows and don’t forget the torrential downpours of rain. These events can cause damages to houses, cars and will create a mess in your swimming pool. In order to prevent hours of cleaning and damage to your swimming pool pumps and cleaners follow these few simple steps.

Make sure you start your swimming pool cleaning system manually before the storm reaches your home. (Presidential Pools and Spas emphasize safety and do not advise activating your swimming pool and/or spa during a lightning storm). Your swimming pool circulation system will help prevent the settling of debris and dirt during a sand storm. The circulation of the pool will direct water to the cleaning drains and eventually into your filtration system. Presidential Pools suggests you clean your skimmer baskets by removing leaves and other debris after each storm. Keeping optimal suction and water flow is very important to keeping your swimming pool clean. If your swimming pool and/or spa are equipped with a backwash it would help to run a backwash once a week until the water runs clear. Also, brushing your pool and spa after a storm will help keep your interior surfaces clean.

Presidential Pools and Spas hopes everyone enjoys the summer months with a sparkling pool despite the filth the monsoon storms bring. Following these simple steps along with proper chemical balance will ensure a stress free summer!

Presidential Pools and Spas also sell factory made replacement Pentair and Hayward Cartridges. We recommend you clean your cartridge filters twice a year and replace with new after three years to ensure proper a functioning swimming pool.
