Yes. Our professionals are fully licensed and insured to complete hot tub and pool maintenance services in Salt Lake City, UT and the surrounding area.

How often should I have my swimming pool cleaned?
Cleaning a swimming pool involves more than merely removing the leaves floating on the surface of the water. To thoroughly clean your swimming pool, you must also check the pH balance of the water, empty skimmer baskets, vacuum the pool’s floor, and clean the filter and pool pump. The frequency with which you need to clean your pool will depend on usage and location, so call our team for an inspection and to learn more about our pool and hot tub maintenance plans.
Do I need to drain and acid wash my pool each year?
We recommend draining and acid washing your pool periodically to extend its lifespan. But how frequently this must be done will vary based on your usage, whether you have hard water, and chemistry maintenance. You may need to acid wash your pool as often as every other year or as irregularly as every seven years, but our professionals can help you determine the best course of action. If you have especially hard water in your area, we suggest draining your pool annually.
How often should I change the water in my hot tub or spa?
It is best to drain the water from your hot tub or spa much more frequently than you would your pool. Absolute Water Professionals recommends draining and refilling your hot tub every eight weeks with regular use. During periods when you are not using it regularly, you may be able to stretch the time between water replacement to 12 weeks.
What chemicals are needed for pools and spas?
Saltwater pool maintenance will differ from the maintenance necessary for pools using chlorine, so always call Absolute Water Professionals before introducing chemicals. The chemicals you will need may include total alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness, and sanitizers. Spas and hot tubs will typically require bromine tablets and non-chlorine oxidizers to ensure cleanliness.
How long do I have to wait to use my pool after chemical treatment?
After chemicals disperse throughout your pool’s water – which typically takes 15 minutes to an hour – feel free to dive into the deep end. However, if you are using a shock treatment, allow eight to 12 hours for the water to pass through your filter.
How often should pool water be tested?
You should test your pool water at least once per week, but we recommend checking the pH and chlorine levels in your Salt Lake City pool biweekly for superior safety.
How long does the average swimming pool last?
With proper pool maintenance from a reputable company like Absolute Water Professionals, most in-ground swimming pools will last for at least 20 years. We can help you extend the lifespan of your swimming pool with regular maintenance. Our team is trained to notice potential problems before they arise, helping us address them early. Our exceptional swimming pool and hot tub repair services will come in handy regardless of the scope of your issue.
What do I do to maintain my swimming pool lighting?
Swimming pool lighting maintenance is relatively simple. You must check your light bulb periodically to ensure proper operation and to remove any materials that may be obstructing it. Keeping debris from getting into your lights will extend their lifespan and help you avoid malfunctions and fire hazards.
