Jandy is always improving on their VS Pump models and their latest generation features dual voltage (115V or 230V), TEFC completely sealed motors and a 3-year warranty on all of their VS pumps. Here is a look at each pump and its main features.

Ultra High-Efficiency Motor – Fully programmable variable-speed pump, allowing you to program the pump for optimal performance and cost savings.

Large Pump Basket – 20% larger strainer basket than the leading competitor for less maintenance and improved efficiency when loaded with debris.

Quiet Operation – Advanced motor design allows the VS FloPro 1.85 HP pump to run at energy-saving lower speeds for noticeably quieter operation.

Space-Saving Design – At just 24.5” in length, and with the zero clearance TEFC motor, it’s an ideal aftermarket solution for tight equipment pads and replacement of older single-speed pumps.

Four Essential Swimming Pool Supplies

There are a few pool supplies essential to keeping the water you swim in clean and safe. Tools for achieving a perfectly balanced aquatic wonderland can range from basic tile cleaner to a comprehensive chemical testing kit.

Which Paving Tiles Are Suitable for Swimming Pool Areas?

Swimming pools provide a lot of fun for some people while it is also a place of relaxation for any family. Adding one to your yard is an exciting journey because you can choose the shape, style and design of the swimming pool. With autumn and winter at our doorstep, this is actually the best time to get it installed as no one is going to swim during the colder days, unless you’ve been dared. So once you’ve chosen your swimming pool and the design, you need to think about the paving tiles that will be suitable for this area.

Keeping Your Pool Furniture Clean and Looking New

There are several benefits as to the best way outdoor furniture should be cleaned and maintained, but which ever method you use the outcome is the same – proper maintenance DOES prolong the life of your outdoor furniture! The most efficient method for cleaning commercial grade pool furniture is with a pressure washer using plain water and mild disinfectant or detergent under low pressure. DO NOT use chlorine or harsh cleaning solutions. If the pressure is strong enough to blow your furniture around the deck, it’s probably strong enough to peel off the finish as well! Don’t have a pressure washer? Simply clean your pool furniture with a soft brush, mild soap and very warm water. After a few years, when plain soap and water do not clean the worn finish, begin to add small amounts of household bleach. When a half and half solution no longer cleans, it’s time to think about getting new furniture.
