Not Your Parents Pool Equipment From The 80's

Wednesday, January 3, 2018

The science behind pool and spa equipment has come a long way in the past 30 years. We now have the ability to install a virtually maintenance free pool or spa with the new innovations on the market today.

Pentair Salt Water Generators use common table salt to produce all the chlorine a pool needs, safely, effectively, and automatically. The system offers the same sanitation performances as manual chlorine addition without the draw backs. No need to buy, transport, and store chlorine compounds as well as subject your body to it when you swim.

A well balanced water produces a more trouble free pool or spa. The Pentair Intellichem Water Chemistry Controller automatically monitors pool PH and sanitary levels and delivers just the right amount of CO2 to adjust the PH and controls the salt water generator without having to check or adjust them. It's built-in Langelier Saturation Index Calculator lets pool owners know went the water is in or out of balance and adjust them automatically. The Intellichem can work independently or with other Pentair automation products.

Pentair has harnessed the instant neutralizing power of ultraviolet light to eliminate virtually all unhealthy microorganism in residential pools in a matter of seconds. With a Bioshield UV Disinfection Sterilizer installed you will be able to zap all kinds of unwelcome guests like cryptosporidium, giardia, ecoli and other waterborne pathogens that can cause RWI's (Recreational Water Illnesses).

The Pentair Easy Touch Control System allows full control off all pool and spa features, offering a new level of convenance. This Panel allows for full system set up, programing and everyday operation. In addition you can access equipment via optional indoor control panels, spa side remotes, and wireless handheld remotes. When used with Screen Logic 2 Interface you gain added control of the pool or spa anywhere across the globe, using either a I Phone, I Pad, IPad Touch, Mac, or PC.

When this system is installed with an automatic vacuum and safety cover, the pool and spa become virtually maintenance free. The installs can be pretty technical but when done properly, they safe the customer time, money, and headaches!

All in a (Few) Day's Work

Here are some photos taken during contruction at one of our job sites. Here you can see parts of our processes such as measuring, digging and transport. Stay on the look out for future photos of this location once the finishing touches are complete. You get a glimpse of the patio we put in around the pool in the last photo, but once grass and plants are in, the whole area will have had a significant transformation.

It's Warming Up! Already Swimming in Mid March

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Outdoor living spaces continue to be one of the most popular features that homeowners are requesting and seem to have the best return on their investment. Getting the most out of our somewhat short summer season here in the Northeast is very important to clients that are looking to add a pool or spa to their outdoor living space. Insulated spas and pools with automatic covers can greatly increase the ‘swimming season’ by making it much more energy efficient to heat during cooler times of the year. When these pools and spas are designed with the proper equipment they can be virtually maintenance free, require no chemical applications, and be controlled by any smart phone or tablet.

Fiberglass Pools And Spas

Monday, March 10, 2014

We know it's still cold out but now is the time to start thinking about a San Juan Fiberglass pool or spa. Landshapes is currently booking fiberglass pool and spa installations as we speak. Our unique line of San Juan fiberglass pools and spas are far superior to anything in the industry. These pools and spas are a  one piece durable fiberglass unit with a 25 year warranty. These are the most durable fiberglass pools and spas on the market, so durable that you can freeze them and turn them into a skating rink in the winter. Visit the San Juan pool and spa link below to see some skating pictures.

Landshapes can design your pool or spa to be almost maintenance free. Yes that's correct almost maintenance free! Landshapes can install a salt water chlorinator cell that creates it's own natural chlorine, an inline UV sanitizer to kill all bacteria, as well as in Intelchem chemical controller with a CO2 kit..... no more manually checking and adjusting PH with chemicals. The other major advantage to having one of these units in your pool or spa is the health benefits. No more coming in contact with chemical chlorine, bacteria killing chemicals, or PH up and down chemicals. The technology which has come forth in the pool and spa industry over the past 5-10 years is nothing like what you and your parents grew up with. Contact us for more information on our fiberglass pools, spas, and operational equipment
