Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone! Here's hoping you're able to squeeze some time in pool side rain or no rain in the forecast! It's that time of year when summer is winding down and we'll be rolling on into fall (and dare I say it?) pumpkin spice everything and anything. I saw some of you roll your eyes! Whether you love it, hate it, or are somewhere in between here we are.
This month's newsletter includes some ideas for the Labor Day Weekend, an article about an artist who features water movement in her paintings, and also an article about pool design.
Please note that on September 1st we switched over to our fall/winter hours. We're now open 9 AM until 5 PM weekdays and 9 AM until 3 PM on Saturdays. Our office is open from 8 AM until 5 PM weekdays. Either give us a call at 713-665-4441 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if there's anything we can assist you with.
Until next month!
Greetings and Happy August!
They say that the "Dog Days of Summer" are from July 3rd thru August 11th. Honestly, I don't think Texas received that memo since we've been sizzling since sometime in May!
Soon kids will be going back to school much to both the relief and frustration of parents out there! Hey, I saw some of you out there already shopping for school supplies! When taking a break from all of that, or the summer heat, how about checking out this month's newsletter by clicking on the link below. By the way, don't forget to take a much needed (and deserved) dip in your lovely pool!

protecting your pool during a freeze
Here's some advice should we encounter (please Old Man Winter leave us be!) what we did earlier this year or should the temps drop below freezing. I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have to deal with that again!
If you still have your pool operational, make sure you run the water through the filtration system while we are under the threat of freezing temperatures. As the outside temps fall below freezing, and your pool is not winterized, make sure to run your system as long as the temps are below 32 degrees.
Should you have an equipment failure or power outage that prevents you from running your system, make sure to turn the breakers off and remove all the winterizing plugs from your equipment to keep it from freezing and bursting.
Every pump has a plug in the basket chamber that should be removed – including the automatic cleaner’s booster pump. The filter tank will either have a plug or a cap that needs to be removed to let the water drain out. And if you have a chlorinator, salt cell, or heater remove any plugs on them.
Lastly, protect your skimmer against freeze by stuffing an empty – but with the top secured – ½ gallon milk jug or 2-liter soda bottle into the skimmer and put the skimmer lid back on. You want something collapsible that will absorb the expansion of water into ice to keep the plastic skimmer body from cracking.
