Green Pool Clean Up

We're often called to complete "Green Pool Clean Ups" There are several different methods for turning a green pool clear again. You can drain a pool and muck out the algae before refilling or you can turn the pool chemically with chlorine and water circulation. The method you choose is dependent on other factors like whether the pool requires repairs to the interior, how old the water is and if you need to replace the pool water anyway.

We completed this job recently and because the pool's water was in pretty good shape, we turned the pool chemically instead of draining it.

Extreme Pool Cleaning in Chandler, Arizona

Here's a very nice pool that was in need of some Extreme TLC.

The cure for cancer might just be in here breeding with a trillion different bacteria and algae strains. Should we preserve samples for science.... Nah! We'll pump it instead, clean everything with chlorine and kill what we don't understand!

Starting to pump.

Brad Filgas of Maple Leaf Pool Service is in the middle of pressure washing the interior here. Brad and I collaborated on this job to speed up completion time to about three hours.

More washing.... more cleaning....more chlorine...

One day later!

My only regret on this job was that our client didn't have the budget for us to remove the calcium from the waterline and tile.

Cleaning Out the Nasty Stuff Again! Octotillo Area of Chandler, AZ

Here's another pool recovery story from the nasty file...
This beautiful swimming pool was neglected by its previous owner and then... neglected by its current owner "The Bank" and now is getting a good cleanup by Pool Savers!

As we found it ~

We pumped all the "good" stuff out of the pool vessel and then pressure washed the entire pool interior! Here's what we have after the cleaning.

And here is what it looks like when the cleaning is complete.

From the other side!

We consider this one a good result for a days work!

Thank you to Ken DeMarcus of Residential Restoration Services LLC for the opportunity to work on this pool in Chandler, Arizona. Ken is a General Contractor working on REO and Fix and Flip homes in the Phoenix market. Thanks again for the work Ken!
