Don't be fooled by the BBB rating. This company and it's owner are by far the worse company I have ever dealt with. There were issues every step of the way. Their contract is not specific enough as to when payments are to be made. We were held hostage until 90% of the money was paid, and then the chase is on. There was over $1200 in property damage done due to negligence. They did $1140 damage to our fence, which they refused to repair. We finally had to resort to a credit card charge back in order to get the fence repaired. They were also obligated to install deck coating over our cement patio. Only after I filed a small claims suit against them did they finally come to do the coating, however the equipment they used was defective and the deck looks like it was sprayed with a can of spray paint the was almost empty. When I questioned the owner, Murray Willitts, I was told that was the way it was suppose to look even though Mr. Willitts did not come out to inspect the job. When reiterating my complaint, I was told that I should "educate" myself on spray deck coating. I had already done that and have pictures of what properly installed coating looks like. They are not even close. Now I need to increase the original amount of damages in order to have another company clean up the mess made by them. Looking for a pool install, if you won't take my word for it then first Google, Pools Plus, and then Google Murray Willitts.
Tips & Advices
Essential pool cleaning supplies include a skimmer, pool brushes, a telescopic pool pole, and a vacuum. A water test kit is also essential, as it allows you to gauge the water quality and add solutions/chemicals as needed to balance the water. If you have a saltwater pool, you won’t add compound chlorine, but it will still require chemicals, as well as needing to be super-chlorinated  (aka “shocked”) once a week.
The primary benefits of a saltwater pool are that the water is less harsh/irritating to skin and eyes than a chlorine-treated pool--and free of the chemical chlorine smell. Also, saltwater pools are less expensive upfront at the time of installation. (However, saltwater pools tend to be more expensive to maintain.) Saltwater pool still require regular upkeep--daily skimming, but they require less complex routines in terms of chemical monitoring and balancing. Weekly monitoring is just for three things: free chlorine, cyanuric acid stabilizer, and pH.
An automatic pool cleaner vacuums debris and dirt from the pool and brushes the surfaces clean. The basic models have a suction nozzle and a hose, and connect to the pool’s strainer basket and filter. These are suction-side or pressure-side pool cleaners. Robotic pool cleaners, which are used to clean larger pools, are self-contained and much more expensive. The appeal of all automatic pool cleaners is that they work with little to no human supervision.
Maintaining a residential swimming pool typically costs $150-$250 per month for DIY maintenance/cleaning. The cost of running the filter pump is additional. This increases by around $100-$200 a month for professional cleaning, and $100-200 if you need to keep it heated. If you only use your pool during certain seasons, it costs a few-hundred dollars to “open” it for the swimming season (a heavy clean and professional water balance).
A swimming pool needs to be cleaned once a week. Some people maintain it much more painstakingly--skimming every other day, brushing algae-prone areas twice weekly, and vacuuming more than once weekly. Do not forget to clean the pool pumps thoroughly every couple months.
