Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much notice do you need to get my pool ready?

A. We can be on site the same week, or in some cases the same day to assess the condition of your pool and give you an estimate on how long it will take before it’s ready to use. It will always be as quickly as possible.

Q. How long does it take to balance the chemicals?

A. Once the initial balance is done, maintaining the chemical balance is fairly simple and would be part of a weekly program.

Q. Can Barbacoa supply all my chemicals as well?

A. Yes, part of our maintenance program is delivery of all chemicals you’ll need. You don’t need to order, we’ll ensure that enough supplies are always on hand to maintain you pool.

Q. How do I know if I have a leak?

A. There are many indications that you may have a leak in your pool. If the water levels or chemical balance is becoming difficult to maintain, or you notice cracks or excessive moisture in adjacent lawn areas, you may have a leak. At this point it’s best to schedule a visit by our leak detection specialists.

Q. How often do I need to have the filter replaced?

A. This will depend on what type of system you have and how much use your pool gets. Replacement times can be determined through our regular maintenance programs.

Q. Which is better, salt based chlorination or traditional chemicals.

A. Both systems have their advantages and both will do the job. For more details and recommendations as to which would be a good fit for you, please call us to discuss.
