Greg Schulte, Arizona Diamondbacks Radio Announcer chooses Presidential Pools and Spas to build is custom backyard oasis. Presidential Pools and Spas has been building the finest in custom pools and spas for over 20 years. Presidential Pools and Spas takes pride in creating the ultimate outdoor lifestyle for you and your family.
When it comes to building pools, it’s an understatement to say that weather delays are not a popular topic.
However, it’s important to know that before Mother Nature brings you days of sunny poolside fun—she could rain on your construction parade: Unfortunately, weather delays are something that all pool contractors and some of their clients will have to face.
What can be confusing and particularly frustrating for pool buyers everywhere is how delays can be longer than the duration of the inclement weather. In other words: one day of rain does not equal a one-day delay in construction. There are several reasons why.
One is that the ground needs to dry before crews can proceed with certain construction phases; this process of soil drying out usually takes several days or longer.
In cases where rain was unexpected, an excavated pool hole that was awaiting gunite may fully or partially cave in, or it may fill with rainwater. Sometimes, water in a hole like this must be pumped out before the soil can even begin to dry out.
There is also the dreaded domino effect. Typically, pool builders have several or more jobs that are simultaneously under construction. When it showers on multiple pool sites, even a modest downpour can throw a wrench into construction schedules for everyone.
This domino effect even can occur when you would never expect it—it’s the phenomenon known as a “sunshine delay”: Even if a single drop does not fall at your house, a downpour in another part of town may delay crews from finishing work on another pool. This in turn holds up their arrival to work on your pool!
In addition to rain, other weather conditions can sideline progress. For example, pool plaster cannot be applied during gusty winds that could blow sand, leaves, or other debris into the smooth, freshly applied material.
Naturally, weather delays can be trying for anyone waiting for their new Presidential Pool to be completed. Do keep in mind that you and Presidential Pools and Spas will be on the same page regarding your pool’s completion: Like you, they want to finish as soon as possible.
Presidential Pools and Spas will also want to ensure the integrity of the pool structure—even if it means taking longer. Maintaining quality requires that we do not take risks during construction that could adversely impact the end result.
A pool is a major backyard addition. Ultimately, a well-built one will add beauty to your home and give your family years of enjoyment—all making any extra wait well worth it!

Presidential Pools of Gilbert, AZ (Carecraft Member) recently invited Carecraft to tour the completed aquatic facilities at the Salvation Army Kroc Corps Community Center in Phoenix. When Joan Kroc (widow of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc) died in 2003, she left $1.5 billion dollars to the Salvation Army to complete a project she had begun in San Diego in 1998. By the end of 2012 there will be 24 of these centers opened (with three more on the drawing boards) in the US and Puerto Rico. The video shares a few of the features of this center and the focus on safety for participants. The details in the video show how important safety is to the staff. Presidential Pools and Spas Commercial Division ran by Edward Fletcher made this high-tech project come to life for this special Phoenix community.

Presidential Pools and Spas has teamed up with US Grass and Greens to sponsor the Cups for Pups event to support canines! The American Mustache Institute Arizona Bureau began this annual event two years ago in a friends backyard to pay tribute to a beloved family dog who had passed away due to cancer. What began with about 25 people and a backyard keg in 2010 has blossomed into a public event that last year saw 500 people and raised more than $4,000 for the Valley of the Sun Dog Rescue. This will be the 3rd anniversary of this event and it’s only getting better!
Cups for Pups, held at the dog-friendly Uncle Bear’s Bar and Grill in Chandler, will include a silent auction and raffles, vendor booths, adoption opportunities and a canine-mustache contest. Dogs will be able to lounge on a plot of artificial turf provided by US Grass and Greens or splash in a doggy pool courtesy of Presidential Pools and Spas on the patio. Also a portion of restaurant sales will go to Mayday Pitbull Rescue.
Hope to see you there!
