Regal News

There are many things to consider before you choose the swimming pool builder that is right for you. Please read everything this has to offer in order to educate yourself about choosing your builder, protecting your monetary investment, the building process itself, and the protection of your investment after the pool is completed and paid for.

First, let’s start with the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex and what it has to offer. There are over 400 pool builders in this area. There are no licensing requirements to become a pool builder. A simple $12.00 payment to the Secretary of State and a catchy name is all it takes for someone to call themselves a pool contractor. The pool construction business is known for unscrupulous salesmen and shoddy and or incomplete construction. It is also the only construction business that takes payments up front prior to work being performed. This is a very bad equation for a trusting homeowner and a less than an upstanding company.

How do you weed out the bad companies? Listed below are several tips.

1. How many years has the company been in business and have they been in business under any other name?

Also, ask how long they have been in business in Texas. This is especially important right now. Pool builders from California and Arizona are rushing to Texas to build pools here. Our economy is much stronger. Do you want to build a company that will leave in two years to go back to their home state? The longer in business, the better, but don’t take a verbal answer. Check up on the company with the local Better Business Bureau.

2. Is the Builder Insured?

What are the insurance limits? Does the builder require that their subcontractors carry general liability insurance? Will the builder provide you with a certificate of proof? Any kind of harm done to your property or to anyone in and around the property during construction needs to be covered.

3. Is It A Local Swimming Pool Company, a Branch, or Franchise?

Be sure your pool builder is a locally owned company. Branches and franchised own often come and go. You want to know that they stand behind every swimming pool and warranty.

4. Is The Pool Builder An Established Company?

Do they own their own equipment and vehicles? Are they in their own building? Can you see samples of pools they have built on display or do you have to inconvenience their customers to view the company’s construction, work, and options? You will want to drive to and physically go into their business office. Many new builders or those with cash flow problems may work out of their house or truck. This may mean that they are using your money to pay for someone else’s pool. More established builders will own their own building and may have a pool on display. This gives you the opportunity to see their work. You can also see features and benefits and take away the guessing of what your pool will look like. You can touch the surfaces and see the color in real life! You can see and hear the water features; you can put your feet in the pool or on decking choices to feel the surfaces on your feet!

5. Ask For References.

Any reputable pool builder will provide you with a list of references of previous customers. Ask them about the building process and customer service after completion.

6. Pricing Tactics and Tricks.

Although picking the cheapest option might be great for small mass produced items, it is not the rule of thumb for choosing a pool builder. There is an adage that states “If you think the cost of a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur.” Make sure you sit down and compare “apples to apples”. Just because you have less expensive bids does not mean that pools are being priced with the same features. Some pool companies offer low pricing to get you to sign a contract with them and then continuously ask you for money after construction has begun.

  • Do you see advertisements promising pools at very low prices? It is possible to build a pool at a very low price. But most of these “incredible deals” are nothing more than bait and switch tactics to get you to call. You should be aware that to build a pool at a low price, quality would have to be compromised. The cost of the pool may be cheap, but your time and money spent to upkeep the pool could be 4 to 5 times more if the pool was not built right, to begin with.
  • Why do cost estimates vary when pools seem to be the same size? The price of a pool is determined by much more than size and shape of the pool. A lot of builders do not include some of the most important factors affecting cost in their proposals. Because there are so many factors that go into building a pool, there are a lot of places to cut corners. Here are some of them: Craftsmanship, Quality of Materials (smaller pumps, filters, etc), Design, Underground strength, Ease of Maintenance, Warranties.
  • Sure the less expensive pool may look the same as the more expensive option as you look at it from your living room window, but what is it made of? You wouldn’t buy a car without looking under the hood, would you? Good work is never cheap, and cheap work is never good! Get every last little item in writing.

7. Payments and Milestones.

Most companies will secure a small payment at contract signing. This money goes towards pulling permits and construction drawings. After that, payments are usually set up with 3 payments of 30% of the contract amount and a final payment of 10%. If a contractor asks you for more than that upfront, be very cautious. Before you sign a contract, verify the amount of payments and when they are due. Get it in writing!

8. How Long Will Construction Take?

Most simple pool/spa combos usually take 6 weeks. The more elaborate the pool the longer the construction. Most builders have shorter construction windows from August through January. Verify build times with previous customers who have had a pool built by the same company. How long did their pool sit with no work being done?

9. After Swimming Pool Construction.

Ask if your pool builder does any follow up for feedback when the pool is completed. This lets you know that they care they did the job right and lets them know what areas to improve in their process. Every good company is built on referrals from satisfied customers and because of their reputation for high-quality work. If you are referred to a pool builder, be sure to ask to work with the same sales/designer. Ask if they have any loyal customers whom they have built more than one pool for or someone who consistently refers them.

10. Warranties.

Warranties should cover the pool structure, filter tank, heater and other integral components. Pool builders with strong reputations and outstanding records in the swimming pool industry will have programs with the industry’s top-quality equipment manufacturers. They are often able to offer extended warranties beyond that of other pool builders. These premier builders have the first in leading edge technologies too. Some areas may have extreme soil conditions that can cause structural issues. Ask your designer if there may be any problems with your pool and what will they do to address the potential problems.

11. Red Light Warnings.

  • Bait and switch sales tactics…you are offered one pool on “sale” and then the sales person attempts to convert you to a more costly option.
  • Your pool is at a reduced price because it will be a “model” for their company.
  • Pressure to sign a contract.
  • Requests for significant down payments
  • Unprofessional proposals. If a company can’t take the time to type a professional proposal for you, how will they take the time to build you a professional pool?
  • If you don’t have it in writing, don’t sign a contract.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUILDING A THE WOODLANDS OUTDOOR KITCHEN

kitchenOutdoor living areas are more popular than ever, and the The Woodlands outdoor kitchen is a favorite addition to many backyards and other outdoor spaces. Turning an outdoor space into a kitchen takes planning and design know-how. Here are some things to consider when you are planning your The Woodlands outdoor kitchen.

Assessing the Site

It’s best if you have a site that is located conveniently close to the indoor kitchen; this makes it easy to carry food and equipment back and forth. The site should be protected from rain, wind, and the sun, and should have the ability to be connected to the home utilities. You also need to be able to level the site out if necessary.

Grouping of Elements

The parts of your outdoor kitchen should ideally be grouped into zones or areas according to their use. For example, the “hot zone” will contain the grill, oven, burners, or other cooking equipment. The “wet zone” is for the sink, ice, beverage tubs, and the like.

Choosing Your Equipment

What kind of equipment is appropriate for your outdoor kitchen depends on the style of entertaining and outdoor cooking you’d like to do. You may want a grill, a pizza oven, a wine or beer cooler, or another type of kitchen equipment. Fans or misting systems are nice extras that help keep guests cool and comfortable.

Safety Considerations

Don’t forget to outfit your The Woodlands outdoor kitchen with its most important element: safety equipment. A fire extinguisher should be stored nearby; the whole family should know where it is and how to use it. The patio in the outdoor kitchen should be slip resistant and corners or countertops should be rounded. A gas safety shut off valve should be available and not too close to the grill.

7 LANDSCAPING IDEAS FOR SMALL SPACES

flowersbypoolTrying to come up with landscaping ideas for small spaces can be a challenge, but there are ways to make a small space appear larger while also creating a beautiful garden environment.

Color. Using bolder and brighter colors at the forefront of a landscaping space will make the background seem to recede. This will make even a very small space appear larger.

View. Creating a grand view in even a small space can make it seem larger. An arbor or an archway is one of the best ways to accomplish this landscaping idea for small spaces, but small trees or garden artwork can achieve the same end.

Coziness. In some spaces, the best thing to do is embrace the smallness. Landscaping ideas for small spaces do not need to be extensive or elaborate. Creating a cozy atmosphere with shrubs and a comfortable seat can be one of the best uses of a littler space.

Water features. Water features like fountains and bubblers can create a beautiful focal point in any small space. The sound of water can also enhance any relaxing and soothing garden atmosphere.

Perspective. Straight, long lines can create the illusion that a space is larger than it really is. A subtle slant of lines, creating with benches or fences, toward an interesting focal point is a great way to play with perspective in a small space.

Interest. Creating a unique area of interest draws the eye and distracts from the smallness of any space. Using an unexpected mixture of materials or foliage is one of the best landscaping ideas for small spaces.

Destination. A great way to make a small space feel larger in the garden is to highlight a destination. Creating a path toward a small patio or seating area can make even the tiniest area seem larger.

WATER ACTUATOR VALVE FROM REGAL POOLS

A Pool That Cleans Itself?
Owning a pool can be fantastic! Cleaning a pool? Not so much. There are several products on the market that can make pool maintenance easier, but the in-floor cleaning and circulation system from A&A Manufacturing offers complete automation for a truly hassle free pool. Imagine a pool that cleans itself while you relax poolside with a good book, blissfully at ease. No more unsightly hoses, bulky attachments, or hours spent scrubbing tiles and vacuuming your pool. A&A’s in-floor cleaning system does this and more. While it’s true that other in-floor systems exist, A&A’s innovative system has taken in-floor technology to a whole new level, providing incredible cleaning power, improved pool circulation, and 50% savings on energy costs!

wateractuatorvalveThe Muscle Behind the System
Every great innovation is made up of several essential parts, and the A&A in-floor system is no different. Behind the pop-up G4V cleaning heads that are built in to the pool floor, the water actuator valve is the muscle that creates the increased water flow and wider surface coverage.

Unlike other cleaning system valves that are bulky and poorly designed, the sleek low profile of A&A’s Water Actuator Valve allows it to get closer to the pool surface to increase efficiency and save you money. A&A’s Water Actuator Valve capitalizes on cutting-edge design to create better circulation and deliver 45% more flow through each zone of your pool. In addition to cleaning your pool better and faster than traditional piston valve systems, the Water Actuator Valve’s increased efficiency requires fewer cleaning heads and pumps, so it can save you money, too!

Like all of A&A’s products, the Water Actuator Valve built to last. A&A Manufacturing created the project with quality as the central concern, so we have eliminated the traditional supplementary parts like internal screens and external pressure devices to make sure that the required maintenance is minimal. The valve is also designed with convenience in mind, so it can be customized to fit the shape and size of your pool. With superior functionality, the Water Actuator Valve is easy to use and completely adjustable. Feel like taking a swim, but worried about interrupting a cleaning cycle? Don’t worry! Just pause the A&A in-floor cleaning system, enjoy your swimming pool, and resume the cleaning when you’re finished.

5 STEPS TO UNCOVERING AND TREATING YOUR CYPRESS POOL FOR SPRING

Closing up your pool for the winter can be one of the most depressing times of the year. A pool, for many, symbolizes the leisure and laziness of summer, and closing it up marks an acceptance of impending winter. On the other hand, opening a pool in spring can be one of the most exciting days of the year, a sign of good times to come. Here are five steps to observing while opening and treating a pool for spring.
pool-cover
1. Remove the debris from the pool cover: Unless your area experienced an unseasonably warm and calm winter, chances are that your pool cover has born the brunt of the rough weather. Dead leaves, dirt, and excess water from melted snow can be just a few of the types of debris littering the top of your cover. Before opening a pool, clean and dry the cover so that you can store it away without worrying about mold or mildew. You can use a cover pump to collect the snow melt and debris into an easy to clean up pile or puddle.

2. Check the water: Most pool specialists recommend that you leave the water in your pool all winter long, no matter how cold it gets in your area. If you followed this directive, your next step is to gauge the water level and check the water for impurities. In order to start treating a pool for spring, you will want to vacuum out all of the dirt and debris you can from the bottom and sides of the pool.

3. Check the filter: You can only get so far in treating a pool for spring by hand. Your filter will help out nicely; just make sure you check all of the cartridges and valves after opening the pool to make sure that everything is in working order. If you removed and stored the pool pump and filtration unit, hook them back up to the pool system.

4. Replenish the water level: When opening a pool for spring, you may find that the water level is not quite where you want it to be. Once you start filtering the pool system, drag your hose out of storage as well and start refilling the pool.

5. Check the chemical levels: The last step to opening a pool in spring is the actual treating of the pool water. Run your usual chlorine, alkalinity, and pH tests and add chemicals when necessary to get the water back to a safe chemical balance.

LOVE MODERN POOLS? THESE FEATURES ARE A MUST FOR YOUR CONTEMPORARY THE WOODLANDS POOL DESIGN

moderna
Modern interior and exterior design principles have extended all the way to the swimming pool, bringing contemporary classiness in residential properties to a whole new level. If you consider yourself an aficionado of modern pools, make a point of keeping the following contemporary pool features in your mind while you look into The Woodlands pool design.

Angular designs: Gone are the days of the circular swimming pool. Nowadays, contemporary pool obsessives want their pool to match up with the modern design of their home. In many cases, that means sharp and distinct angles with a lot of rectangles. You might even consider creating a long and narrow rectangular pool to better accentuate your home’s architecture and your yard’s landscaping.

Tasteful Tiling: The arrangements and patterns of the stones, both in and around your pool, can be features that add worlds of beauty to your modern pool. Crystalline mosaic tiling inside the pool, contrasted by modern rectangular stone decking outside of it, is a tasteful modern technique that has caused quite a wave in The Woodlands pool design.

Water and fire features: Modern pools aren’t just spots to swim and relax in the summertime. On the contrary, a contemporary pool should also be a visual wonder that wows guests and makes you feel more content with your living situation, all in one fell swoop. Waterfalls and in-pool fountains can be the kinds of pool features that perfectly strike the balance between classic and modern. Fire features, on the other hand, can add a fascinating dynamic of contrast to your pool and can make summertime cookouts and nighttime swim sessions as beautiful as a beach side resort.

In-Pool Illumination: Speaking of nighttime swim sessions, fire isn’t the only pool feature that can add a nice splash of light and color to your pool. Glow stones and filtered color lights can turn your modern pool into a nighttime visual attraction that is at once both haunting and alluring.

USE CUSTOM STRUCTURES TO CREATE OUTDOOR LIVING ROOMS IN YOUR BACKYARD

Learn How You Can Use Custom Structures Like Arbors and Pergolas to Create Outdoor Living Rooms in Your Backyard with These Outdoor Living Design Tips and Ideas from Woodlands Pool Builder Regal Pools.

Adding a pergola or gazebo to the backyard are great ways to create inexpensive retreats for you and your guests. It’s the perfect addition to an area where people can relax by the pool under a shady space, yet still get the effect of enjoying the outdoors.

There is a difference between a pergola and a gazebo, albeit a small one, but depending on what it is you are looking for, one should be right for you.

By definition, a pergola is an arch of trelliswork that supports climbing plants. But if you don’t want to inundate your pergola with plants, that’s OK. It’s just important to note that that pergolas have an open rafters as opposed to gazebos, which feature closed roofs. Gazebos are open on all sides yet offer complete coverage on top, a great addition to an area where the elements might otherwise keep you from enjoying a meal in the fresh air.

Both pergolas and gazebos can be constructed of a variety of materials and designed in many different ways. It’s all up to what you want!

6 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE HIRING A THE WOODLANDS POOL BUILDER

poolc
So you’ve decided that you want to add a pool to your backyard, but you don’t know where to start. While we associate pools with leisure and relaxation, there are actually a lot of questions you need to ask yourself before you add a pool to your home. Prior to contacting a The Woodlands pool builder, make sure you know the following six pieces of information.

1. What type of pool do you want? Under the umbrella of “pool,” there are quite a few styles to be chosen from. Do you envision yourself lounging in an aboveground pool or an in-ground pool? What shape of pool (square, rectangle, circle, etc.) matches the design of your home and the geographical features of your yard? How large do you want the pool to be, and do you have enough space to fit your chosen design on your property? Answering these questions can help you find the perfect The Woodlands pool design.

2. What is your budget?  Different pool designs and pool building services will yield varied price tags. Decide what budget you are willing to set aside for your new pool and then use that information to help you choose a design and a builder.

3. What material do you want in your pool? Swimming pools may look similar from a distance, but can actually be built from a wide range of materials. From granite to gunite, vinyl-lined to poured concrete, the style and material build of your dream pool is one of the first questions your The Woodlands pool builder is likely to ask.

4. What equipment will your pool use? Your The Woodlands pool builder should help guide you through the selection of your pool filter and other pieces of pool maintenance equipment, but you should know the basics of different filter systems and chlorination methods before you meet with your pool builder.

5. What is your builder’s reputation like? Once you have sketched out the basic idea of your pool in your mind, you will start looking around for The Woodlands pool builders and making a list of potential hires. If you have friends or family in the area, ask for references. If not, hit the internet to read customer reviews.

6. Do you trust your builder? Eventually, you will narrow down your The Woodlands pool builder options to one or two contractors. Meet with the remaining candidates and see if you feel comfortable with the people who will be building your pool. The pool construction process can take some time, and you need to be able to trust the person working near, in, and around your home.

WHISPA FROM REGAL POOLS

Create a Backyard Retreat with a Calming Spa

With today’s hectic life pace, finding a place to escape and unwind is becoming more and more important. Your home should be your ultimate refuge from the outside world, but sometimes with busy family schedules and domestic responsibilities it can be hard to relax here too. That’s why so many people choose to build a pool. They want a space at home that is created solely for the purpose of enjoyment and relaxation. A place where they can unwind after a long day and reconnect with loved ones or even just be alone with nature.

whispaWhile the pool may be seen more for fun and play, your spa is still the ultimate backyard getaway- a place you can close your eyes and relax to the soothing sounds of nature or your favorite music. Unfortunately, nothing kills the mood like the annoying and distracting sucking sound that’s made by the intake lines when your jets are turned on. It drowns out music, interrupts conversations and distracts from the spa’s overall purpose of peaceful relaxation.

Luckily, there’s now a product that can remove this distraction. A&A’s WhiSpa is an muffling device that is flush mounted on the spa deck to control air intake. It not only eliminates the noise, but it also provides more efficient heating for your spa, making it the warm, therapeutic and peaceful retreat you wanted.

Installing the WhiSpa is easy and surprisingly affordable. Call us today for more details or to schedule an installation!
