Radiant Pools Semi-Inground Tarson Pools SyracuseWhat is the theme of your event? A simple backyard BBQ, an evening dinner by the pool, or a more casual family event?  Is this a fun kid-friendly event or an intimate gathering of adults?

For a children-friendly event be sure to provide your guests with little swimmers, towels, sunscreen, and pool game options like diving sticks. Some guests will bring their own but it never hurts to have extras on hand.

For an adult theme, the pool party considers the ambiance of the event. Maybe something simple and airy like this would work. If the party is more of an evening affair consider floating candles or pool lights.

Get creative with the invitations to your pool party. Don’t just call people to invite them,  give them something special to look forward to.

The Theraputic Uses of the family spa

Muscle relief  is one of the most often thought of therapeutic uses for spas, but did you know owning a hot tub can help you get a better night’s sleep and other healthy results?

Therapeutic Results:

  • A Better Night’s Sleep:

The National Sleep Foundation, which offers sleep-related education and research, included this in a Facebook post on Healthy Sleep Tips: “Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine such as a warm soak in a whirlpool bath or hot tub and then reading a book or listening to soothing music.”Photo of women sleeping therapeutic syracuse pools canon

  • Rejuvenation & Better Circulation:

Warm water or Hydrotherapy promotes stress release and can ease minor aches and pains. The heat of the water helps increase blood circulation which is essential to getting your body the vitamins, nutrients, and oxygen it needs to function.  Relaxing in a hot tub can increase vasodilatation which allows vitamins and minerals to more easily flow through the bloodstream, helping soothe sore and overworked muscles.

  • A Bonded Family:

These days with activities and tech gadgets ruling our days as well as our children’s owning a  hot tub can be a great way to bond together as a family without distractions.  A hot tub offers a place to connect and relax as a family. Parents can remove stress from their day and the kids love to play. Having trouble connecting with your teen? The family hot tub can offer a great time to talk with your teens without the distraction of computers, cell phones, and video games.

  • Less Anxiety:

In the early 1900s, mental institutions in the United States used whirlpool tubs and other forms of hydrotherapy to calm agitated, out-of-control patients. According to “A History of Somatic Therapies,” published by the Veterans Administration Mental Illness Research and Clinical Center, doctors in the 1920s were able to document positive physiological changes when patients were treated with submersion in a special whirlpool tub. The water flow and temperature were adjusted by an attendant, and notable changes in blood pressure, pulse, and respiration were observed and documented in the agitated patients. Similarly, whirlpool therapy can alleviate the stress and anxiety you may be experiencing from work or family issues. A demanding career and the search for a healthy balance between work and family are reasons to use a day spa to help you unwind. The day-spa experience can be created at home with a whirlpool tub, aromatherapy sea salts, candles, and soft music while you soak and relax. (source Livestrong.com)


Jacuzzi Stay-At-Home Treats Campfire cone

Stay-At-Home Backyard Treat - Camp Fire Cone

If you haven’t yet tried Campfire Cones before, you, my friend, are missing out! Though they are “campfire” cones, you do not need a campfire to make this delicious treat! Campfire Cones can be made on the grill and in the oven in addition to the option to heat them over a campfire.

The method for making these Campfire Cones is pretty simple. You’ll start with an ice cream cone. You use any type of cone, but for the best tasting, a waffle cone is preferred. You can skip some steps, but you can add peanut butter or banana or both!! Then stuff it with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Once it’s stuffed to the brim, wrap it into a tin foil to prep it for heating.

campfire cones steps

As mentioned, you can heat them in the oven, grill them, or if you’ve got a campfire going, you can heat them over the campfire. When you unwrap the cones, the peanut butter, chocolate, and marshmallows will be melted to gooey perfection! You can change them up however you’d like – perhaps by adding sliced bananas or strawberries. Instead of chocolate chips you could use peanut butter chips or even butterscotch or caramel chips. Fill ’em with whatever you’d like! This is a special dessert treat that the adults and kids will love.

BioGuard 3 Step Water Analysis Center tarson pools syracuse

Help the longevity of your pool with proper balancing

A number of factors determine the life of your pool liner.  The average life of an in-ground pool liner is about 8-10 years.  With good care, they can last much longer, even 20 years or more.  Assuming that the liner fits and was installed correctly, the most important factor is water chemistry.  Keep the water in balance and properly sanitized.  It might sound simple, but keep the pool clean!  Usually, your pool only needs a few minutes per day, but it is an important few minutes. THE most important factor that determines the life of your pool liner is water chemistry.

Pool Liner Radiant Smoothing Tarson Pools

 

Special coating protects vinyl liners that make them withstand the extreme sun, temperatures and constant exposure to treated water but you can help maintain your liner life by following these steps:

 

– Keep Proper pH levels: Proper pH levels are between 7.2 and 7.6, which should be tested daily. When your pH level drops below 7.0 this can cause your liner to discolor, swell and create unwanted wrinkles. Having a pool with a higher than 7.6 pH level accelerates the aging process of your pool.

– Careful with Chlorine: Chlorine abuse is major cause of liner degradation. Keeping your pool’s chlorine level too low will not kill enough of the bacteria in the water. While chlorine levels that are kept too high can attack your liner and cause bleaching.  It is important to note that if you are using granular chlorine dissolve it completely in a bucket of water first before putting it into your pool. Never allow chlorine to come in contact with your liner before it has been dissolved.  It is a best practice to run your circulating pump for a minimum of four hours after the addition of chemicals.

– Water Levels: Although your pool liner is coated to protect against the sun, it is extremely important to keep your pool full of water at all times. When the water level of your pool gets low it exposes your liner to the sun that can lead to drying out and shrinking.

– Keep your Liner Clean: Your pool will develop a “bathtub” ring above the water line. It is important to keep this area clean as these contaminants that include body oils, suntan lotions and airborne contaminants can get “baked” onto your liner causing it to crack and dry out. To clean this area you should talk with us about what products will work best for your liner. DO NOT use CLR or household cleaning products.

 – Chemicals: More is not better when it comes to chemicals. Do not add more chemicals than needed to your pool. This can cause your pool liner to disintegrate and also can be very expensive.

 

 


Pool Alarm Pool Safety Tarson Pools Syracuse

Remember your pool safety this summer!

Pool season is finally here! With it comes a chance to revisit the Pool Safety Rules and Guidelines with your family and friends. It is important to make sure that everyone who will be using your pool and spa know the safety rules and guidelines to insure a wonderful pool season.

Post the pool and spa rules near the entrance of the Pool or Spa so that every time you get in you can view them.

Have your children take the Safe Swimmer Pledge:

1. I pledge to never swim alone

2. I pledge to never play or swim near drains or suction fittings

3. I pledge to always dive feet first

4. I pledge to obey the pool rules

You can go here to download a certificate to give them as a reminder about being safe in the pool.

Follow these Water Safety Tips from the International Swimming Hall of Fame (ISHOF)

  • Teach children water safety and swimming skills as early as possible.
  • Always brief babysitters on water safety, emphasizing the need for constant supervision.
  • Appoint a “designated watcher” to monitor children during social gatherings at or near pools.
  • Equip doors and windows that exit to a pool area with alarms.
  • Have a phone by the pool with emergency numbers programmed into speed-dial.
  • Post CPR instructions and learn the procedures.
  • Keep rescue equipment poolside.
  • Keep a first aid kit at poolside.
  • Maintain constant visual contact with children in a pool or pool area. If a child is missing, check the pool first; seconds count in preventing death or disability.
  • Don’t use flotation devices as a substitute for supervision. Never allow a young child in a pool without an adult.
  • Don’t leave objects such as toys that might attract a child in the pool and pool area.
  • Don’t rely on swimming lessons, life preservers, or other equipment to make a child “water safe.”
  • Never assume someone else is watching a child in a pool area.
  • Don’t leave chairs or other items of furniture where a child could use them to climb into a fenced pool area.
  • Let us not forget our 4 legged friends that like to have fun in the pool as well. We love our pets and they love to come play with us in the water so let’s make sure they are safe too.
  • Try not to let them drink the pool water, keep fresh water handy for them instead
  • Wash them off after their dip in the pool so the chlorine does not dry their skin
  • Make sure your dog knows where to enter and exit the pool safely, so they don’t hurt themselves clawing at the sides of the pool.
  • Just as with kids, take it slow and don’t overdo it. They get tired too.
    • One sure sign your dog is getting tired is that their back end begins to droop in the water, when this happens, it is time for a break
  • There are life vests available for all shapes and sizes of dogs.
    • Certain dogs such as breeds with shorter legs and broad chests (bulldogs, Corgi’s, Pugs, etc.) are not effective swimmers. They may need the support of a life vest.
    • Heavily muscled dogs such as Greyhounds with little body fat will not be as buoyant in the water and might need the life vest for support.

Always have a plan for First Aid.

Radiant Aboveground Metric American Made Tarson Pools

American made aboveground pools: Radiant Metric Round

You may feel that now is not the time to be thinking about pools in Upstate NY with the cold temperatures, but now is the perfect time to start doing your research. In this entry of our “American-Made Above Ground Pools” blog entry we will be giving you information about Radiant Above Ground Metric Round Pools.

In our March 2014 blog entry, “Choosing Your Pool: Radiant Pool Edition” we introduced you to all the unique qualities of the Radiant In-Ground Pool and why it is a perfect fit for this area. These same qualities are true for the Above Ground Metric Series, such as:

BUILT TO LAST

What sets this pool apart from the rest is in its design. Radiant Pools use the same technology used in the construction of aircraft, which makes the pool walls stronger than steel, polymer and even concrete. You never have to worry about the sustainability of your Radiant Pool because the walls will never rust, warp or crack.

CUSTIOMIZABLE  

The Metric Round Above Ground Radiant Pools come with 7 dimension choices, starting at 16’ and going up to 33’. With the superior wall construction of the Radiant Pool it can be installed aboveground, semi-inground, on a slope or into a hill. The Radiant Metric Series Pool fits any backyard and any budget.

You can also add on accessories:

FENCE AND GATE KIT: Add an extra layer of security to your pool with the fence and gate kit. The kit comes with a custom fence mounting clip with an easy slide-and-bolt assembly that creates a clean, finished look. Nothing hangs over the top, no brackets bolted to the side of the pool. The kit includes fence sections, custom fence mounting clips, gate, and all hardware.

RADIANT INSIDE STEP:  In the past, when you thought of above ground pools, you would picture a ladder as your only means of entry into the pool. Radiant Pools offers an inside step that allows you to walk into the pool, just like in their in-ground pools. Making it more accessible for all members of your family and friend

CUSTOM WINTER COVER: Winters can be very harsh and damaging on above ground pools, but with a winter cover designed exclusively to fit into the coping of Radiant Metric Pools you can be put at ease that your pool will weather the winter. The coping, made of PVC, covers the edge of the pool wall and has an inside track to hold the pool liner in place and an outer track to hold the Metric Custom Winter Cover in place.

Available for both standard 2” and premium 4” coping, the custom fit provides perfect coverage for winterizing your Metric Pool. The custom cover is made with ArmorKote™ technology with a triple laminated no-rip polyethylene weave. The perimeter has a triple edge reinforced binding and it is lightweight for easy installation, removal and storage.

SWIM LONGER

The built-to-last insulated wall panels help your pool water heat up faster and keep it warmer longer. This means you can start your swimming season earlier and swim later. The average Radiant Pool extends your swim season by 2 months! With the superior heat retention properties of a Radiant Pool, you can swim during the entire swimming season without the need of a heater saving $1000’s on heating costs.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

A Radiant Pool is an investment that you can feel good about because it helps to lessen your footprint. The materials used to construct Radiant Pools are ozone friendly and 100% recyclable. They are the only energy efficient, an Energy Star™ Partner since 2006, and environmentally smart pools on the market.

WARANTY

The Metric Series warranty includes protection from winter damage! Snow and ice buildup can destroy a traditional aboveground pool. The incredibly strong Radiant pool wall minimizes this potential harm.

Radiant Pools are 100% made in the USA and come with a 100% lifetime warranty that can be transferred to new owners if you should ever sell your home. Also, if your purchase is financed through a home equity loan, your interest is considered tax deductible.
