The equipment and plumbing should be re-engineered

With correct pool engineering, you can maintain pristine water clarity with less chemicals and less energy-consumption. This will collectively save you money. But it will also make your pool safer, which is the real benefit.

Pool Engineering

This subject matter can be a bit complex. It deals with the plumbing, pump and filter. This is collectively the most important part of your pool. All pool owners love the cool pool stuff. But none of this matters without the right plumbing, pump and filter system.

Incorrect Pool Engineering

Your equipment and plumbing are likely incorrect. For the equipment, the pump is likely over-sized and the filter is likely under-sized. For the plumbing, the diameter of the pipes are likely too small. And in the pool, the skimmers and returns are likely improperly-spaced or perhaps even in the wrong locations. Way too many pools are plumbed and equipped incorrectly.

As a result, you’re spending too much money on chemicals and energy-consumption each year and your pool is still not consistently clear.

When a pool is engineered incorrectly, it is not designed to sufficiently move water to and from the pool. This hinders circulation and filtration. This also hinders chemical distribution throughout the pool. Collectively, this hinders water clarity. You can certainly keep your pool water clear under these conditions. But it’s going to take a lot more chemicals and maintenance. It’s going to take a lot more energy-consumption. And it will take a lot more of your time.

With correct engineering, you can maintain pristine water clarity with less chemicals and less energy-consumption, saving you money.

Correct Pool Engineering

A pool that is correctly engineered has a properly-sized pump and filter system, properly-sized pipes, and proper plumbing schematics. This – not the chemicals – is the real solution for optimal water clarity. Yes, the pool chemicals are responsible for water chemistry and this certainly affects water clarity. But the real solution for optimal water clarity is having a well-engineered pool, namely its equipment and plumbing.

This will truly help you maintain optimal water clarity with better performance and efficiency with fewer chemicals and less maintenance.

Correct engineering will save you money.

It will also make your pool safer. When equipment and plumbing are correct, the water moves at a safer (slower) velocity through the pipes. This will significantly help prevent against the potential for entrapment at the suction fixtures (main drains and skimmers).

Saving money is great. But the potential to save lives is the real benefit of correct engineering.


We hope this helps.

We can re-engineer your equipment and plumbing

All pools have a pump, a filter, and plumbing. But a well-engineered pool has a properly-sized pump (preferably a variable speed pump), a properly-sized filter, and correct plumbing schematics with properly-sized pipe diameters. This is all mathematically based on the specifications and gallons of your pool.

We can design and install this perfectly engineered system for your pool…your safe pool.

If you decide to remove the current pool deck and replace it new, this is the time to re-engineer your pool too. Similarly, if you want to properly engineer your pool, this is the time to remove and replace your pool deck too. We can handle the entire job.
