In Ground Common Questions
1. What are your inground pool prices?
We offer such a wide variety of options on inground pools that allows us to help cater to your famlily budget. Generally, prices start out with vinyl liner then progress with fiberglass & gunite. Aloha now offers a round inground that starts out around $10,000.
2. What is included in the price of an inground pool?
We offer many different pool packages based on your needs and what our current specials are. Pools include the filter system, ladder, liner and maintenance equipment. Sometimes start-up chemical packages are included as well. We can customize the packages based on your needs.
3. How long does it take to build an inground pool?
A inground pool can be built in as little as one week, but it is best to allow 2 - 4 weeks for basic inground pools and longer for custom inground pools.
4. Can I use an extension cord to run my pool pump?
No! You must have a 120v receptacle professionally installed within 2' of your pool pump with the pump plugged directly into it.
5. How full do I keep my pool?
Ideally you should keep your swimming pool water level between one third and one half the way up the opening of the swim pool skimmer. This is the level at which the swimming pool skimmers operate most efficiently.
If the level is higher than half way up, the water moving into the skimmer is going so slow that debris may pass by the opening without being pulled in. If the pool water is so high that it covers the skimmer opening, floating debris can't get in.
If the water is too low the skimmer can bottom out, thereby sucking air into the system which can result in losing the prime (water moving through the system) and possibly result in burning up your swim pool filter pump motor.
6. How long should I run my Polaris cleaner to insure it covers my whole pool?
Three hours should be enough time for the Polaris to cover all areas of most pools.
7. How often should I backwash my sand filter?
At least once a week and after you have ran a manual vacuum over the pool. And any time that you notice that the filters pressure gauge is ten pounds over its normal operating pressure.
8. Why should I purchase my chemicals at Aloha compared to stores such as Walmart? Why are they more expensive?
Look on the label of both your Aloha container and its competition and you will see that Alohas chemicals have a higher percent of active ingredients. The competition has more filler than active ingredients.
