Green Pool Cleanup
It happens to all of us. We ignore the pool and chemical levels are out of balance. Green algae grows in the pool. That is not all that that grows and essentially this pool is a biohazard to you and your neighbors. Additionally this pool can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes insects and is completely unsafe to swim in. It is necessary to either “shock treat” the water with chemicals or completely drain and wash the pool surface with acid and or liquid chlorine. This was the case post Hurricane Harvey as raw sewage was washed into pools. It will take days and multiple visits to return the pool levels back to normal. Let us do the dirty work.
Pool Pump Repair
The most critical component of your pool is the filter pump. The filter pump draws water from the main drain and / or the surface skimmers and delivers water through wall nozzles called returns near the surface of the pool. This pool pump runs the longest everyday and has the highest impact on your monthly energy bill second only to your main air conditioner. A pool pump with a 2 horsepower motor may have been costing you between $80 – $100 a month as long as you’ve owned it.
We are happy to complete a pool pump motor replacement to keep you going, however we highly recommend upgrading the entire pump and motor to variable speed. Today’s cartridge filters perform at optimal levels under long, slow filtration cycles. When operating a variable speed pump, motor speeds are reduced by 30% as compared to its 2 horsepower equivalent. The exciting news is your energy consumption drops by 70%!
Long runtimes, cleaner water, less energy.
Pool Light Repair
Any discussion about pool light repair must include the all-important topic of safety. Until recently pool lights have been a 120-volt fixture with an attached cord, ran through an underground conduit to a switch or pool automation system protected by a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter). The critical GFCI component keeps swimmers safe by interrupting the 120-volt electrical feed to the wire. Similar types of outlets or exterior lighting must follow NEC code with a 5-foot set back from water. This restricts most users from being able to touch light fixtures or outlets while a portion of their body is still in the water. However, the true solution to this potential hazard is to replace all pool lighting with low voltage LED technology. Several year ago the City of Houston called for the upgrading of all swimming pool lighting in new pool construction to be low voltage.
If you’re looking to enhance your backyard, adding low voltage LED pool lighting can give you a look that simply pops and the peace of mind added safety. QRF is your source! Contact Us now to get your led pool lighting needs fulfilled.

Pool Filter Replacement
Combining new variable speed pump technology with a highly efficient cartridge filter will deliver a higenically clean swimming pool experience. Older technology Sand or DE filters demand shorter intervals of cleaning and or backwashing. A large sand filter has 5 square feet of filter media. A large DE filter may have 100 square feet of filter media. The average size cartridge filter in Houston has 400 square foot filter media. With that much filter media present, filter pressure gives you no indication of the need for cleaning. We recommend filter cleaning 2x a year minimum. With a large active family we recommend quarterly cleanings.

UV Pool Systems Houston
Traditional pool sanitizing typically begins with the use of chlorine tablets and muratic acid to balance ph. Over the past 20 years the emergence of salt chlorine generators has created catastrophic long term damage to swimming pools across the country therefore we do not recommend salt systems. A powerful UV ultraviolet water sanitizer when combined with an ozone generator makes your pool cleaner and healthier while substantially reducing chlorine consumption. UV and ozone reduces irriating red eye, discolored hair and swimsuits and minimizes harmful chloramines linked to asthma. It’s environmentally friendly, family friendly, and produces no harmful bi-products.
Quality pool construction begins with a complete plumbing installation from the top of the filter to the bottom of the drain of each pool prior to the gunite / concrete structure being applied. Using known building standards form across the country, prudent swimming pool construction companies would pressure test each plumbing installation to a minimum of 35 psi. Your pool typically runs from 15-20 psi. Without that test it is impossible to know without professional leak detection whether your pool is leaking underground with the pump running or from hard to detect sealing errors in the pool plaster.
