  • Glass Tile – A Hot New Trend
    One of the hottest new trends in luxury pool designs over past few years is small glass tiles that offer a clean, iridescent look. Replacing your aging ceramic tiles with glass tiles can completely transform your outdoor space from a basic, run-of-the-mill patio to a dramatic tropical oasis. While many glass tile designs can be extremely expensive, there are several options that can accommodate any size budget. Price is typically determined by a few different factors – the quality of the glass and where the tile is manufactured. In North America, a lot of glass tile is imported from China, Mexico and Italy. Each country produces a range of styles – everything from tiles with a handmade, artisan feel to elegant, gold-flecked designs. Before you start any renovation project, it is important to understand the size of the space you will be redoing and how many square feet of tile you will need. That way, when you find a tile Continue Reading.

  • A controlled heat wave is ideal in Florida
    Does your office have the everyday temperature battle? Some like it freezing and others like it warmer than the beach in the middle of the summer? Many employers will put locked cases around the thermostat to prevent the up and down in temperatures. There are several reasons for this, one is to control the energy expenditure, but the other is to extend the life of the unit.  The same stands true for your pool heater. When considering a heat pump, consider its features. Some homeowners think because it sits outside, it should be basic. Actually the features will help extend the life. Such as a keypad, where settings cannot be controlled by just anyone. Another great feature would be heat exchangers that are no longer made of cupronickel alloy. This is the primary cause of premature heat pump demise. Other great features to consider are super efficient, quiet operations, off-set plumbing, which makes for an easy installation, easy to view Continue Reading.

    Solar Isn’t For The Polar Solar heat as an option for the swimming pool…is it really worth considering? To answer the question simply, yes! Realizing that every heating option has its pros and cons, lets focus on solar heating and you will be more knowledgeable to determine if it is an option for you to consider. Solar pool heating is the most cost-effective use of solar energy in many climates.

  • Heat To Melt Away The Florida Snowman
    Most of the country is under the assumption that if you live in Florida you can swim all year around, right? Wrong! How can you travel to the coldest destinations in the United States in the dead of the winter and an outdoor whirlpool be a selling feature? Or, you travel just a little north to Disney World and it is easy to spot the “out of towners” because they are the ones swimming in the pool as you walk by in your winter jacket on your way to freeze at the parks with the temperature at a frigid 55 degrees.  Well, because those in the water, are actually warmer than us standing outside because of the heat being used to keep the water warm. The temperature is so comfortable, it is like a soothing bath, so warm that you can see the steam hovering just above the water. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could have that same luxury Continue Reading.

  • Pool Heating is as Easy as 1-2-3
    Winter in Florida can be a standing joke to many living elsewhere. However, to actually swim in the winter in a pool that isn’t heated is unfavorable. Just like jumping into cool water in the heat of summer feels so nice, so does slipping into a warm pool to escape the nip of the cooler temperatures. When considering pool heating options, the following are the three available for consideration. First is a gas-powered swimming pool heater. This option requires a propane tank or a natural gas hookup. Typically used for spas, this choice keeps the water at a constant temperature, which makes for a great choice for a pool. The number one reason people choose the gas option is to achieve the desired temperature the fastest, regardless of the outside air temperature. The second option is the heat pump, which is three times less expensive to operate than a propane gas heater.  Heat pumps work by removing heat from the Continue Reading.
