This is the worst customer service we have ever encountered. We have been waiting for repairs to be made to our pool since August of 2016. It is now July 2017 and still no repairs though they have sent us bills on multiple occasions for this same work as if it was done. So far they have not shown up for several appointments and each time given the excuse of either their equipment broke or their employee was sick but they never bothered to call to tell us they were not going to show up. Wish we could use someone else unfortunately they already have several thousand dollars of ours as we did pay half up front for a new liner, pump, filter, and plumming. Save yourself the problems and use a different company!

The customer service here is the worst I've encountered bar none. We made an appointment for a pool repair over 2 weeks ago. Yesterday on the day of the appointment, they did not show up. At 3:30 we called and were assured that they were still coming. By 7pm it was obvious no one was coming, but we called anyway...no answer. This morning, they could not have cared less that we wanted to cancel the service and offered no explanation as to why they did not show up or call to say they would not be coming. I spoke with a manager, Robert, who was smug, unhelpful, and offered no solution or apology whatsoever. I asked for the owner's name to write a letter of complaint and he refused to give it to me. Go somewhere else and save yourself the headache. I wish I had.

The other day my wife and I came in for a pool part and an opening kit. We were somewhat new at all this and upon check out we were given the pool part for free... and being retired ex-military we want to thank the Pool Center for supporting our military and support of our country.

I am posting this to warn other consumers. This company charged very high prices for very little service of bad quality.
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.
